Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme and this week is a bit bittersweet as it is the last week it will be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Next week, you will be able to find Top Ten Tuesday over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Like lists? Join us! Pick your ten (or 3, or 6, or 20!), write your post and link up! Then go hopping 🙂

This week’s theme is Books We Meant to Read in 2017 But Didn’t Get To (and totally plan to get to in 2018). To be honest, there are many MANY books I meant to get to in 2017. Then I signed up for a book tour. And another. And another. For the second half of 2017, I read very few books that weren’t part of tours (this is one of my 2018 Resolutions, by the way – to read some of those backlist books and stop requesting so many!)

Top Ten?

If you’ve visited the Ginger Mom before, you’re probably wondering why The Real McCoys is on my list. Yes, we already have a Ginger Mom review on the blog. Crystal reviewed it in November and raved about it! Since then, it has been nagging at me to pick it up 🙂 So, on the list it goes!

What are your top ten books?

  1. Oh dude, I *just* read The Summer of Chasing Mermaids in November, and I LOVED it! I hope you get to it and you love it as well!!

    BTW, I totally get what you’re saying about getting distracted by Blog Tours. Our blog doesn’t really do them, but I do get distracted by ARCs.

  2. The Princess Leia one looks like a must-read. I’m know I’m in the minority when I say I did not like Ready Player One. It was a great story, but there are huge passages of just narrative. I prefer more dialog.

  3. Oh, I really recommend Ready Player One! I read it in 2016 and then went straight back and reread it in 2017, which I almost never do. It’s way better than the trailers for the new film make it look 🙂

    Ink and Bone is on my TBR as well. I was really excited about it at first, but I think there are a good few books I want to read before I finally get to it.
