All The Books I Can Read

1 girl….2 many books!

Top 10 Tuesday 9th January

on January 9, 2018

It’s Top 10 Tuesday time! Created by The Broke & the Bookish, this is the last time it will be hosted there. Next week, TTT moves to Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl’s blog. This week our topic is:

Top 10 Books I Didn’t Get To In 2017 {But Will In 2018}

  1. A Torch Against The Night by Sabaa Tahir. I think I bought this almost a year ago and I still haven’t read it yet! I enjoyed the first book but now I’m starting to wonder if I should skim it again before I read this one so I can refresh my mind on some of the characters and plots.
  2. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I won this in a giveaway and I’m super keen to try it, having not read any of Kristoff’s stand alone work before. This has excellent wraps in book blog land and I’d expect nothing less.
  3. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore. Read both Graceling and Fire last year and loooved them so much. I have actually sat down to start this twice and then have either had to pick up a review book or just decided to read something else. I know this is going to be amazing, just have to find the time to tackle it because I’m sure I’m going to want to devour it in a day.
  4. Glass Sword & King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. Okay this is kind of deliberate. I had the 2nd book and waited until the 3rd came out in the smaller paperback version so it would both match my others in the series and also be cheaper. But in waiting I heard a few things about the ending of 3 that put me off reading them. However I do want to finish them. I think the 4th comes out this year.
  5. A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. Feels like I’ve had this forever and it’s also a chunkster. It’s on my summer TBR pile and I may be reading it with 1-2 fellow bloggers as a kind of buddy thing, hopefully this month.
  6. The Rose And The Dagger by Renee Ahdieh. I bought The Wrath and the Dawn and this one together because I couldn’t resist the beautiful hardback versions. I loved the first one but I just haven’t picked up the second one yet (which is literally, the story of my life).
  7. A Gathering Of Shadows by V.E. Schwab. Lol, as with the above, I bought the first 2 books together. Read A Darker Shade of Magic and thought it was really interesting. I have the 2nd book, I really have no excuse for not picking it up yet! Definitely going to get to it in 2018.
  8. Tower Of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas. I bought this the week it was released. I binged the other books in this series in 6 days in 2017 and I was sure I’d read this one immediately but somehow it never happened. Perhaps I’m apprehensive of an entire book revolving around Chaol. Anyway, I will get it done this year! Hopefully next month.
  9. What Happened by Hillary Rodham Clinton. I buy her books the day they come out but somehow non-fiction nearly always gets pushed aside for the piles of fiction. However I’m determined to read this one and soon. It’s still so relevant. In fact it probably gets more so every day.
  10. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch. I’ve had this on my iPad for so long. I think I bought it around this time last year in a big sale. Who knows, it might’ve even been the year before! I intended to read it last year but didn’t end up getting around to it. So onto the general 2018 tbr pile it goes.

So with the best intentions, I write this blog post…..but as we all know, the best intentions often go astray! It’s my hope that I not only get to these in 2018, but also in the first half of 2018 but who knows what will happen? My TBR pile is chronically out of control and I don’t expect that to ever change!

Super interested to see what everyone intends to get to themselves in 2018.

  1. If you liked An Ember in the Ashes, you will like A Torch Against the Night (although I liked #1 better). And I will really be interested in your evaluation of A Little Life. It was recommended to me by somebody who said it was one of her all-time favorites. I won’t tell you yet what I thought. Happy reading.

    I’m intrigued by Nevernight. I hope you enjoy these books when you get around to them!

  3. Greg Hill says:

    I want to read What Happened too, but I keep p[utting it off thanks to all lthe fiction I have piling up! lol

  4. I really enjoyed Snow Like Ashes, but it’s the only book on your list that I’ve read! Still need to start almost all of the series that you’re continuing on with – I’m so bad at actually picking up the first books, but as soon as I do I fly through them!

    You can check out my Top Ten Tuesday here.

    A few of these books are on my list as well. I have such high hopes for Nevernight and Snow Like Ashes. I`m also thinking about adding Hilary`s book to my Non-Fiction November TBR.

    I’m looking forward to reading What Happened, too.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

  7. Marie says:

    I’m curious about What Happened, but might just skim it.

  8. I need to read The Rose and the Dagger soon too, I loved the first one – so Idk what I’m waiting for!

  9. Tower of Dawn was on my list this week too! Snow Like Ashes I was kinda meh about (though i did buy the second book). Glass Sword I really didn’t like, so I hope you like it better than I did. AGOS is so, so good!
    My TTT:

  10. What Happened is on my TBR list, too. I hope you get a chance to read all these!

  11. AHH A Gathering of Shadows and The Rose and the Dagger are both SO AMAZING! I can’t wait for you to read them. 😀 I wasn’t a huge fan of Glass Sword, so I’m a bit hesitant on the third book, but I hope you enjoy them both! ❤

  12. Nicole says:

    I also want to read What Happened, but am with you 100% on the non-fiction getting pushed aside in favor of the shiny fiction novels. I hope you enjoy your 2018 reads – looks like you’ve got some good choices on there!

  13. Annemieke says:

    After Fire I also hope to pick up Bitterblue. May we both love it. Happy reading!
