Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read in 2017

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

I was spoiled for options for this weeks topic. This is why I never set a reading list for each month because I will never stick to them. There were a lot of great books I fully intended to read in 2017, but, as always, life and my mood reading tendencies got in the way. Here are the 10 books I planned on reading in 2017 but never did. Hopefully, I can get to reading them this year.

Also, as this is the final topic that will be hosted by The Broke and Bookish, I just wanted to take the time to give the ladies over there a HUGE thank you for all the time they’ve put into this over the years.

December Wrap Up 2017

Goodbye 2017, truthfully, you will not be missed. Now, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve not really been on the blogosphere a whole lot in the last month or so. Why? Life got in the way and, honestly, I needed to recharge my batteries. December is always a busy time of year for us, with Christmas, my brother’s birthdays, work, and everything else, things were definitely chaotic.

I succeeded in reading at least one book, which was The Bird and the Sword. It was such a lovely book, and the romance was beautifully developed. The concept of the book and the world itself was really fascinating, and I can’t wait to explore more of it.
