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.

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

This weeks topic is all about wanting more/less of something. Certain books have a habit of leaving me wanting more. Sometimes it’s because the book lacked a something or could have used some extra pages to fill in the gaps. However, most of the time it’s more of a case of me being greedy and not being ready to say goodbye to a case of characters. Here are the ten books/series that I feel could use a sequel.
