Welcome to another week of Top Ten Tuesday! TTT is a bookish meme hosted by the lovely Broke and the Bookish. Each week bloggers are given a topic and encouraged to list their own top ten on that topic.
Last week’s topic was New To Me Authors I Read in 2017. This week’s topic is Books I Meant to Read in 2017 But Didn’t Get To. I was in the bookstore with my teenage niece just the past weekend browsing books and I saw so many that were on my TBR list that I never got around to! She did remind me that I can’t read all the books, and I reminded her I do what I want!
As always feel free to add your own books to the list in the comments, or add the link to your own TTT!
Rhett & Link’s Book of Mythicality: A Field Guide to Curiosity, Creativity, and Tomfoolery by Rhett McLaughlin & Link Neal
I have this book and all of its mythical glory sitting on my shelf. It’s the only book I own (and probably will be) that was written by youtube stars, but I’ve followed Rhett and Link since they were just singing songs on youtube. (I did a search for the Reading Rainbow theme song. How ironic!) Now look at how the boys have grown!
One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus
I’ve been on a big mystery/thriller hype this year and this book seems to fit the bill, but I’ve heard so many mixed reviews that I kind of put it on the back burner. From the blurb I know I want to love it, so I’m just going to have to jump in and see.
Word on Bathroom Walls by Julia Walton
I have this book on my Kindle, and I really don’t have an excuse for not reading it yet. It kinda just slipped under my radar somehow, and I still really, really want to read it.
Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me by Carrie Ann DiRisio
A book that makes fun of YA tropes that we know are completely ridiculous, but we love anyway; especially when it comes to the main guy. I actually picked this up in a bookstore and flipped through it before putting it back! Then regretted it. I love how the book is formatted and need to get my hands on a copy!
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling
Augh. I ended up being one of ‘those’ people and actually saw the movie before I read the book, which isn’t so bad with this once since it was a screenplay. But still. Technically. And again, I have this tucked away on my Kindle and it somehow just got pushed to the back.
Artemis by Andy Weir
I like science, okay? And I liked The Martian. I was all for reading this and then reviews came in about Andy getting a big head and rushing through this book and I had to back up for a moment. Now I have to force myself to pick it up and make sure that a great author isn’t getting Big Head syndrome.
Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia
This made by to-be-read list early on because of Made You Up! I think I’m just going to have to take a month off of work for a reading holiday.
