Hi guys, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday! If last week was all about looking ahead to the shiny new books we are anticipating, today it’s time to get those feet back on the ground and think about all the books from 2016 we STILL haven’t read.
Now, I have a huge backlist. It’s one of my goals to get more older releases read, instead of getting distracted by the sparkle of new books (buuuut, they’re so shiny and I NEED THEM too!). Ahem. We’ll see how well I do this year. Here is a selection of ten 2016 releases I STILL need to read. And I will. I promise. Just as soon as…. oh hey a new shiny book!
I was sooo looking forward to reading this fantasy revenge plot and then… I never did. But it’s okay, with the sequel on it’s way, maybe I can binge read them both this year!
Aladdin is one of my favorite Disney stories, so the fact that I haven’t read this retelling yet fills me with sadness. BUT it’s on my shelf already, so I’m sure I’ll get to it soon!
2016 was the year I fell in love with Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles. So of course I want to read her Queen of Hearts retelling. It has pastries! I need it!
This wasn’t originally on my TBR to be honest, but I’ve heard so many raving reviews that I am super intrigued. I’ll get to it in 2017!
Another series set in the world of the Seven Realms? YES PLEASE! I haven’t read it yet, but again, I’m okay with that because it means I’ll be able to binge read the sequel, Shadowcaster, immediately after.
I was highly anticipating this fantasy, but some mixed reviews have thrown me off a bit and caused me to procrastinate. I still definitely want to read this though! I just may wait until the sequel comes out.
OK, I’m sure you guys are probably tired of me saying I need to read this sequel to The Wrath and The Dawn. But seriously, I need to read this. Actually, I’m reading this right now, so GO ME!
Well, this only came out in December, so technically I’m not that far behind… But still, it’s one of my favorite series and has my favorite character on the cover. I NEED to read this soon.
Another release I was so looking forward to and for some reason just haven’t picked up yet. I’m new to steampunk, but this just sounds too good to pass up on. Clock spirits? YAS!
You may know about my desire to catch up on all Rick Riordan’s books and this one is definitely one I want to read soon. Just, you know… after I re-read the entire Percy Jackson and the Olympians series AND caught up with the entire Heroes of Olympus series. It’s one of my main goals for 2017!
