If you didn’t already know what Top Ten Tuesday was about, every week you are given a topic and you then create a top ten list in response to that topic. Top Ten Tuesday was created by the gals over at The Broke and Bookish. Check them out, their blog is pretty cool.

I feel like this might be the easiest (sadly) top ten prompt for me because looking back, I don’t think I read many 2016 releases. Which is a shame, I know. And I really don’t even know how this happened. One minute I’m super pumped to read it and the next it’s December 31st and the year is over. Then I wonder why I’m always behind and have to hide from spoilers… cue eye roll. Seriously Elissa, get it together. I admire people that keep up with releases, seriously you guys are super humans. So these are the books that I really hope to get to this year. Hopefully I can get them read early on in the year. We’ll see.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer – I was very excited to pick up this book when it released and I even started it but I stopped because I felt the pace was kind of slow
Passenger by Alexandra Bracken – I always meant to pick this up cause everyone loved it, but time sped away from me.
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two by John Tiffany – I’m holding on to the hope that I get to see the play which sounds dumb cause I’ve already tried to get tickets twice and failed miserably but I’m still hopeful.
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab – I haven’t read anything by Schwab yet which is crazy. I know.
And I Darken by Kiersten White – I really, really want to read this cause it sounds so epic so I’m making it a priority.
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand – I bought this and literally forgot I even had it. Sad I know, but still the truth.
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – Another book that sounds really good and is liked by many people
Bonus: The Wasp That Brainwashed the Caterpillar: Evolution’s Most Unbelievable Solutions to Life’s Biggest Problems – I’m a fan of Simon’s Absurd Creature of the Week column over at WIRED. They’re short but very entertaining reads.
What books do you think I should stop what I’m doing to read? What are some releases from last year that you didn’t get to read? Let me know & have a lovely day!
