Blogmas Day 10: 7 Books I Should but Still Haven’t Read in 2017

December 10, 2017


Happy Blogmas Day 10! I can’t believe I’ve already written 10 posts this month! Today I’m going to talk about the books that, despite all of my efforts and excitement about them, I haven’t read YET.


THUG ph by Twirling Pages


Here you’ll find the MOST HYPED of all books, so get prepared to fan yourselves and avoid fainting; this is a SHAMEFUL, shameful pile.


-The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas


I KNOW, okay? I know. I must be the only person on Earth who hasn’t read this book yet. THUG was showered with praise all throughout 2017, as well as during the Goodreads Choice Awards, in which this book won the Debut category by far. I’ve heard everybody say this was an amazing book and not one single bad review.


I’ve read the synopsis a thousand times at this point, and I’m so excited about this! I feel this is the book I’ve needed in my life for a long time. This is one of my top books to read before the end of the year, but I still cannot understand how I’ve got to this point without getting it done.


-Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia


I bought this book in July, and it’s been six months but I still haven’t read it. I was also interested in Francesca Zappia’s other novel, Made You Up, but I wanted to start with this one. I really have no idea why I haven’t read it yet.

It might be because I’ve been in a heavy mood to read Fantasy and basically anything but contemporary books. But a school friend of mine (the only one who actually reads as much as I do) read it and LOVED it. I hope to get to it soon, but I honestly don’t foresee it on my December 2017 TBR. 



-What To Say Next Julie Buxbaum


I received an ARC of this book a LONG time ago, at the start of the year, but I am such a dumbass and I haven’t gotten to it. It’s been an entire year, but I still haven’t read this AMAZING book! But do not despair! There’s a tint of hope in this post because I am CURRENTLY READING IT!! YAY! But it’s so surprising how I got it in January and haven’t read it almost 12 months later.





-Now I Rise by Kiersten White

The same happened with Now I Rise, more or less. This is the second book in The Conqueror’s Saga, and I LOVED And I Darken, the first one. I felt so connected to Lada, and I found that book to be super interesting. You can read my glorious review HERE.


I requested an ARC for this book too and got accepted as well! But I’m really bad at keeping up because I’m a mood reader and I cannot force myself to read a book that has some sort of responsibility attached to it, especially not when I already have so many OTHER ARCs. This teaches me about moderation. 


Still, I am also going to read this book in 2018, and definitely before the third book comes out!


-A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab


I really enjoyed A Darker Shade of Magic because of Victoria Schwab’s stunning writing style, as well as the characters and the world she created. It was a fantastic book that I read during a cozy, rainy day when the atmosphere was perfect. You can read my review HERE.


I told myself I had to read the next one soon, but I still haven’t. I think my trouble is that I don’t have a physical copy of it, (I have it on my e-reader) and that annoys me. I’d really like to buddy read this book sometime in the future months, though, so if any of you are thinking about it, hit me up in the comments or on Goodreads!!!


-Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman

I think Starfish is my favorite cover of ALL 2017, and I was enchanted by it the second I saw it for the first time on Twitter. I don’t know why I haven`t read this yet either. The ratings on Goodreads surprised me, however. Not many people have been talking and reading this book, only some few I know. But I am still really interested in the premise and what it discusses.

Starfish is a better case because it only came out in September, but I’d told myself I would read it AS SOON as it came out, and I didn’t, unfortunately. 





-Wild Beauty by Anne-Marie McLemore


Wild Beauty JUST came out in October, so not too long ago as maybe the other books, but I still cannot believe I haven’t picked it up yet. It has been getting raving reviews talking about the writing style and the world, and I’ve seen this book featured in many Top Ten Tuesday lists about Favorite Bookish Settings, so that’s gotten me even more hyped up about it.


I’ve only read one other book about magical Realism, I think, and it was Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys. There is something really cool about Magical realism books that I want to continue exploring, not t mention the fact that one would usually encounter GORGEOUS, lyrical writing in them, and that is something I REALLY enjoy in books. I hope to read Wild beauty soon!


Let me know if you think there is a book in this list that I should ABSOLUTELY read, and give me 3 reasons, just to spice it up. I want to hear from you what are 3 reasons why one or two or ALL of the books on my list today are great reads. I hope you comment.

Have a very nice day, everybody! Thanks for reading!
