Top Ten Tuesday | Seven Books from 2017 I *Really* Meant to Read and Instead Allowed to Gather DUST!!

Hello fellow Top Ten Tuesday-ers and readers. Today marks the end of something. Something the bookworm book blogger world has been able enjoy for these past seven years. Before we talk about what this is, let’s have a look at the official topic.

Broke and Bookish January 9: Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn't Get To (and totallyyyy plan to get to in 2018!!) – Broke and Bookish

Today’s bittersweet. Today is the last Broke and Bookish Top Ten Tuesday. After seven years, the ladies at the bookish haven have chosen to close their blog. Fortunately for those of us who so enjoy this meme and have fond memories from our time participating, Jana (one of the Broke and Bookish ladies) of the Artsy Reader Girl has decided to carry the meme over to her personal blog.

To the ladies of Broke and Bookish, thank you for creating and hosting this meme for these many years. It’s been a lovely place to meet new bloggers and bookworms to say nothing of the fact it’s a darn fun meme. Thank you Jana for taking Top Ten Tuesday. We’re glad to have you continue the tradition. We’ll look forward to January 16th’s topic and our first Top Ten Tuesday with The Artsy Reader Girl!

Speaking specifically about today’s topic, we’re taking a look at those books we really meant to read in 2017, but alas did not. I suspect I could talk about a great deal more than seven, but since it’s 2017, I though picking seven was a good a place as any to hit “stop” on.

Let’s have a look.

1. The One, the Heir and the Crown by Kiera Cass | Why I haven’t finished these novels is a mystery. I so enjoyed The Selection and find them to be really entertaining stories; plus they’re my kind of tailor-made kind of guilty pleasure reads.The One: Amazon | Goodreads; The Heir: Amazon | Goodreads; The Crown: Amazon | Goodreads

2. Murder on the Moor and Death at Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering | Julianna’s novels are always delightful. Sadly I haven’t read ‘Moor’ yet and because I’m a turtle reader, I will have to skip ahead and read ‘Thorburn’ next. Still, the former is on my 2018 reading list. Murder on the Moor: Amazon | Goodreads; Death at Thorburn Hall: Amazon | Goodreads

3. Chasing Secrets by Lynette Eason | Completing Lynette’s dynamic Elite Guardian series is something of a must for me. Hopefully sooner in 2018 rather than later. Amazon | Goodreads

4. Wait for Me by Caroline Leech | As I've read very little YA historical, this book really interests me! Add in the fact that the story also sounds interesting, and of course, I'm making this one a 2018 priority. Amazon | Goodreads

5. The Names They Gave Us by Emery Lord | I remember being so stoked to have Emery’s new book on my shelf. Though I didn’t get it read in 2017, that excitement remains. Amazon | Goodreads

6. When Tides Turn by Sarah Sundin | Reading Sarah’s 2017 release was something I had the best of intentions to read in 2017. Sadly, I did not accomplish this. Amazon | Goodreads
7. Just Look Up by Courtney Walsh | Yet another book I had every good intention of reading in 2017. But on the plus side, it’ll be another fabulous book I can enjoy in 2018. Amazon | Goodreads

8. P.S. I Like You by Kasie West | 2017 is the year I discovered Kasie West novels, and I look forward to discovering more of her books in 2018. This one being high among them. Amazon | Goodreads

Ps; to everyone who visited last week's Top Ten Tuesday, and left comments... thank you. 
Life happens, and unfortunately I didn't get replies to them any sooner than today. 
As always, I read and enjoyed each one; thanks for your continued comments, 
and to those of you who have been a longtime Finding Wonderland reader, 
thank you for your support.

These are a few of the 2017 releases I really meant to read in 2017. Tell me about the books you fully meant to read in 2017, but never did. I’d love to learn more about them (and perhaps discover moreto add to my 2018 TBR. A TBR I suspect is going to spiral out of hand – rapidly.

Leave your Top Ten Tuesday links below. It will probably take me a week before I swing by to visit, but I look forward to discovering your lists and the books you meant to read in 2017.

Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland
