Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they provide a prompt and other lovers of listmaking join in with their own top ten list. Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.
This weeks theme is: Ten Books I Meant to Read in 2017 (and will hopefully read this year!)
Ah, all those books I really meant to read, and which I want to read still, right now, all of them, straight away. You know that feeling, right? So many books, so little time?
This of course means I had no trouble writing my Top Ten Tuesday post this week; the only difficult thing was limiting my list to ten books!
Here’s hoping that I manage to read at least a few of these titles in the next few months:
Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant – Killer mermaids. I’ve been reading reviews online which say this book is scary. How am I resisting picking this up right away? I have no idea, but as soon as I finish my current read this will be next on my list. I want to give it my whole attention.
I fancy trying a little more sci-fi in my reading, so the next two on the list will hopefully satisfy that:
Artemis by Andy Weir – A new-to-me author (I still haven’t read The Martian).
The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers
The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman – A prequel to the next book on my list this week.
Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman – I’ve seen the movie, so now it’s time to experience the book.
My Cousin Rachel by Daphne du Maurier – Added this one to my TBR list after I watched the recent movie adaptation. It was really good, and kept me guessing right to the end. I want to see how the book compares.
Red Sister by Mark Lawrence – I saw this on a few ‘best of 2017’ lists, so I really need to find time to read it this year.
The Remnant by Charlie Fletcher – The last book in the Oversight trilogy, and it’s a great oversight on my part that I still haven’t managed to read this one yet.
Year One by Nora Roberts – This sounds like an end-of-the-world with a twist type story as humanity is wiped out by a virus but some of the survivors gain powers they never had before. Am really looking forward to starting this, but so far I’m still waiting for my library copy to arrive.
Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood – I just finished watching the tv series based on this book and it left me really wanting to read the story as well.
Have you read any of the books that my list this week? Which would you recommend? And what are you hoping to find the time to read this year?
