Top Ten Tuesday – I Totally Meant to… I Swear!

img_0452If 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. If you’re interested or want to learn more click here for a look at their Top Ten Tuesday page.

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.

EMPIRE OF STORMSEmpire of Storms by Sarah J Maas – I don’t even know but there’s shame. Lots of shame believe me.

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.

NEVERNIGHTThe Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson – I can’t even blame not reading this on wanting to read it in the summer because I live in Miami and its summer year round.

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

THE WASPThe Problem with forever by Jennifer L Armentrout – I’m making it my mission to read everything Armentrout because I love all her books so I’ll get to this for sure.

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!

  1. I’m right there with you in terms of all of these books, but particularly Empire of Storms, Heartless, and Nevernight. I own all three, so I really don’t have any excuse to not have them read other than a reading slump. However, they’re definitely in my sights and there’s a pretty good chance that they’ll get read at some point this year, haha.

    Here’s my TTT if you’re interested btw. 🙂

    • Yes I feel you on the reading slump! Not only did it kicked my butt last year I just wasn’t in the mood to pick the majority of these up. I’m really hoping to get to Empire of Storm. I have to lol

      • Amen to that! Nothing fit my mood last year (with the exception of ACOMAF). Here’s to hopefully kicking the slump and getting to Empire of Storms this year! lol
