Top 10 Tuesday — Books I Should Have Read in 2017

9 Jan

So many books, so little time . . . . That should have been my motto in 2017. Like a child who fills her plate with more than she can eat, I filled my bookshelves with more books than I could read. Am I complaining? Not really. I am a cock-eyed optimist when it comes to books — I am sure that I will one day get all the books stacked around my home read. But for now I give you the Top 10 Books I Didn’t Read in 2017. This is a list of my reading regrets. And I intend to get them read soon. Which one should I start with first?

For other bloggers’ reading regrets, head over to The Broke And The Bookish.

    don’t remind me! I looked at my writing schedule and won’t be reading anything that’s not on audiobook until… say… October? (cries a little)

      I’d be crying too! 🙁 But I’m sure you are reading research books.

    I’m with Nicole: Mark of the King! All but one of these are on my list of things that I should have read last year but need to read this year! Dee’s book is at the library ready for me to pick up tomorrow!

    I *should* have read Julianna’s and Lynette’s in 2017 too… but I am reading ‘Thorburn Hall’ now and did read “The House on Foster Hill” too. Both are really quite good. Hope you enjoy all of these, Beckie – and happy 2018 TBR-ing. 🙂

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.

      I have to make sure 2018’s list is not that long!

    You need to read all of them but I say Mark of the King and The House on Foster Hill first.

    • rbclibrary January 14, 2018 at 3:47 pm #

      I will be reading Foster Hill in March with my book club. At least that’s one I can mark off!

    You’ve got ao many good books here, it’s a tough call. I’m going to have to say Chasing Secrets. I had that one on my TBR stack for too long–it was one of my last books for 2017, and then I wondered why exactly I’d put it off so long–I loved it! Happy reading!

      Glad to hear it’s a good book. I love Eason. I know why I have put it off — I say yes to reviews! But I have to — the books are so pretty! Lol!

    The Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green. She does a great job researching and sharing French and Louisiana territory history, making the people walk off the page into your heart.

      Seems to be the consensus! Thanks for the recommendation!
