Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish
2016 was the year I really dived into this blog and great big world of reading and books. I’ve always been a big reader, but I didn’t start utilizing Goodreads, Amazon, and other book bloggers and bookstagrammers for finding new books. And boy have I been finding so many new books! And because of that, I was maybe a little too liberal with my spending on new books which resulted in me adding 2016 published books on my TBR list, but they kept getting pushed back because I had (still have) so many owned books to read first.
Problems of a bibliophile, right?
Anyways, so here are my top ten 2016 releases that I wanted to read in 2016, but didn’t and so now I plan on devouring them this year!
Fire Touched by Patricia Briggs
The only reason I didn’t immediately pick this one up is because it’s released as a hardcover first, so I actually won’t pick up my preferred mass market paperback this year. But still, I sometimes wish I didn’t care about format. But alas I do because all the other books I own for this series is in paperback.
Stiletto by Daniel O’Malley
This is actually a similar scenario as the book above. I prefer paperback most of the time and since I have the first book in paperback and a certain edition, I have to wait for the one I want. Again, I wished I didn’t care because I really enjoyed the first book.
Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel
I forget who was reading this, but I saw that they read and reviewed it around its publication date and after reading that review and the blurb, I knew I wanted to read it. Unfortunately, I never got around to picking it up last year, but I definitely want to do so this year if everyone’s reviews is anything to go by!
Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham
I think I heard about her book around the time I found out about the Gilmore Girls Revival (I was slow to hear about it). I always loved Lauren Graham, even though I’ve only seen her in a few things beyond Gilmore Girls. I currently have an audiobook hold for it through my library, but as of right now, I’m #68.
My Last Continent by Midge Raymond
I saw a fellow blogger and bookstagrammer reading this and I immediately looked it up and then added it to my TBR. And now I own it! But I didn’t read it before the end of 2016 like I wanted too. But I will definitely read it this year!
A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess
I had this on my TBR for months before it actually came out. I really wanted to read it when it came out, but I also wasn’t sure I wanted to spend any more money. I tried to win it in a Goodreads Giveaway, but alas, it was not meant to be for 2016.
Revenge and the Wild by Michelle Modesto
I feel like this is another book that has been on my TBR list for months! Which it has. I found it on Goodreads before it was published and I think I just kind of keep forgetting about it, but then finding it again.
The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon
The moment I finished reading Yoon’s Everything, Everything, I immediately discovered she had a new book coming out! Even though I’ve seen some mixed reviews, I still wanted to read it.
Starflight by Melissa Landers
I was so excited about this book! I added it to my TBR in December 2015, but I kind of forgot about it because it wasn’t published until March 2016. I know I keep seeing the second book around and now I really want to read it!
The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon
So I didn’t know about this book until I was voting in the Goodreads Awards. After reading the blurb, I pretty much immediately found a deal and bought it. I was hoping to read it before the end of 2016, but I own it, so I can read it soon!
I had a lot of books on my TBR that were published in 2016. I can only hope that I get to read some of the books I really want to read sometime this year!
Have you read any of these or plan to?
