Books I Meant to Read in 2017 (but didn't)

 Books I Meant to Read In 2017....what am I waiting for?  

Thanks to Broke and Bookish for hosting the week of Top Ten Tuesday. Next week it moves to The Artsy Reader Girl and I'll be joining there too!

We all have LONG lists of books we want to read.  I know there are a few great books released in 2017 or before that I haven't read.  Here are the top ones I WILL read in 2018.

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah -currently listening to on Audiobook and have laughed so hard I've cried.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid  (Update, I finished this book last week and loved it!  We just discussed it at Book Club and most loved Evelyn and felt she was true to herself throughout, but a few felt she was too selfish.  Interesting views!!!!)

Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly (my non reading friend read it! so I need to so we can share a book discussion!)

Elenor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman- I'm not sure how I missed this book!

The Orphan's Tale by Pam Jenoff- This has been on my radar for awhile!

The Sun is also a Star by Nicola Yoon- Recommended by my librarian friend so I know I need to read it.

Girl in Pieces by Kathleen Glasgow-  I started this book as an Audiobook but it had to be returned to the library and I never got back to it. I loved the first 15% and need to finish it this year!

Little Gray Dress by Aimee Brown- This is a random one I have had on my TBR list and am considering reading on Audiobook.

The Alice Network by Kate Quinn-  I've heard great things!

Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate- Another top book of 2017 for many that I intended to read!

I know I have so many more to read or that I meant to, but I tried to include a few books that I haven't mentioned on the blog before!


  1. You've reminded me of the books I want to read I didn't put on my own Top Ten list this week. The Lilac Girls, The Orphan Train and The Alice Network, especially. I hope you love The Sun Is Also A Star. It was one of my favorites in 2016. I hope you get to all of these,Cori! Enjoy them.

    1. Doesn't that always happen? I read post by others and realize how many I missed off my own lists!! Good to know The Sun is Also a Star was one of your favorites, I know we have lots of books in common! Thank you!

  2. Nice list of books!! I hope you read them all in 2018!! Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2018/01/top-ten-tuesday-ten-books-i-meant-to.html

  3. Born a Crime was fantastic! I have the audio, and Trevor narrates. It’s hilarious!

    1. The time he didn't use the outhouse.......the voice of his grandmother.....oh my hysterical!

  4. I saw on your MM post that you were listening to Born a Crime and so I started too, thanks to you. Oh my, it's so good! The scene when Trevor decides not to go to the outhouse is so hilarious I was laughing so hard. I also want to read The sun is Also a Star. I hope you get to read all the books on your list. :-)

    1. I about died of laughter during that part too! I like the rest of the book, good humor and some one liners, but I didn't laugh as much as I did with that part...unfortunately. I am learning lots and see why others said it was a good book. I am so glad that you picked it up! I hope you are still enjoying it!

  5. The Sun is Also A Star is still on my TBR too. Hope you'll get to all of these in 2018!
