TTT: Ten Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To

TTT: Ten Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To

by

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week is the last week that Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish and I just want to thank them for hosting for so long. It really is a commitment and I’ll always be grateful to them for introducing me to so many blogs and in turn, so many books. Thank you ladies!

This post is quite difficult for me because 2017 was such a poor reading year. The pile of books that I meant to read but didn’t quite get to looks in danger of toppling over. Still, I”ll try to include only the books that I really, really meant to read, but never quite got around to.

Hopefully, that will also act as a reminder to get to them at least in 2018!

After last year’s miserable book blogging showing, I am determined this year to make book blogging a high priority. With that in mind, my first post of 2018 is a book review. I read The Curious Incident of the dog in the Night-time over the Christmas holidays, sharing the book with my daughter. I loved it, she didn’t – mainly because she couldn’t relate to the autistic boy who is the protagonist of the book.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

I finally read Divergent this past week. It had sat on my shelf for ages, looking at me reproachfully. I am not heavily into dystopia. I had bought this book on a whim, and that whim soon passed.

Still, I thought I should give this book a try to see how it felt.

To give you a quick summary of my thoughts, I liked the book well enough, but it wasn’t engaging enough to want me reaching out for the next book in the series.

Today, the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list top ten books I liked more/less than I thought I would.

Expectations are always so damning, aren’t they. So many times I go into a good book with great expectations, and end up disappointed. At other times, I read a book that seems just about ok, and then end up surprised and amazed by the book. It may not be a particularly good book, but because my expectations were low, I end up loving it.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. For this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, it’s all about underrated or hidden gems that we’ve read within the last year or so.

Some of these are pretty popular among book bloggers, but I am surprised how these books are not on the bestseller lists in India where I live.

Hello and welcome to my first Top Ten Tuesday of 2017.

Last year, I dropped the ball on this meme, and really all memes, but I thought I’d revive at least this one. I ended up with just nine books for this meme, not because I read everything else released last year, but because these books are the only ones I regret missing out on. You can be sure they ended up on my TBR list for 2017.
