Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads.
This week’s topic focuses on books that you’ve been meaning to read, didn’t get around to, but want to read in 2017. This, like yesterday’s Top Ten Tuesday post, could have ended up with about 50 items included on the list. Narrowing it down to 5 is going to be hard, but I’ll do my best. Just be aware this is by no means an exhaustive list 😉
This is one of those books that I kept talking about and was so excited for. I got it from OwlCrate, swore that I was going to read it very soon, and then just… didn’t. I really do want to read this one, especially since I’ve heard a lot of great things about it. Hopefully, I can do that before the sequel comes out. 🙂
I actually know why I’ve put off reading this one: I originally heard nothing but fantastic things about it so I got excited and bought it. Then almost immediately after buying it, I started seeing a lot more mixed reviews, mostly saying that it has beautiful writing but the story itself is kind of boring and that put me off reading it. But I know that a lot of people have still loved this book and after meeting (and falling a little in love with) Roshani back in September, I know I want to read this.
I have no idea why I haven’t read this yet. I read City Love (which I loved) a month or two before Lost in Love was released specifically so that I could read this as soon as it came out in May. It’s December and I still haven’t read it. I swear I’m going to read this in 2017.
I’ve had my eye on this ever since I first heard about it years ago. I bought it a year or two ago and, like the others on this list, I’ve yet to read it. I know this is one of those series that nearly everyone in the book blogging community has read and loved so hopefully I’ll get to it soon.
I bought this last year after Christmas, I think. I had seen it around on Tumblr and really wanted to read it. I don’t know much else to say about it besides that I still really want to read it haha
