Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week we’re talking about resolutions for 2016, and I’ve picked a mixture of bookish, blogging and personal goals.
Magonia seems really unique, and I have to admit, was one I was drawn in by the cover of. It’s not one I requested on Edelweiss though, and not one I’ve got a copy of yet – I meant to get to it in 2015, but haven’t yet, and it may end up being an eventual library read.
A Court of Thorns & Roses
The blurb just doesn’t appeal to me the same way as Throne of Glass did, but at the same time I also want to read it because, well, Sarah J. Maas! I’m planning to buy a copy of this one after I get paid, and I’ll hopefully finally get to it this year (in time for book 2!)
The Wrath & The Dawn
With 26 friend reviews on Goodreads and an average rating of 4/5 between them, this definitely seems like one worth picking up! Plus, fairytale retelling + gorgeous cover, I was determined to get to this one in 2015 but just never got to it. It’s one I’m definitely keeping on the TBR list to get to eventually though.
I bought this one for someone for Christmas for a friend so I’m pretty sure I’ll get to borrow it soon 😉 This is one I can’t wait to read, but I’m also a little apprehensive about – while I loved Fangirl, I can’t help wondering if Carry On will live up to my fantasy love!
I adored Ready Player One, but I’ve heard really mixed things about Armada, which I think is partially why I never felt particularly rushed to pick it up, and then suddenly 2015 was over!
The Ice Twins
One I picked up on a whim, rather than because it’d been recommended or was a review copy or anything. While I love a good thriller ocasionally, I have to be in the mood for it so I’m just waiting for the urge to strike again.
A Madness so Discreet
Again, one that got put off more just because it’s outside my usual reading choices and I haven’t particularly been in the mood for it, rather than because I’m not interested.
While I’ve been enjoying the series, it’s not one I’ve been desperate to read, so I know I’ll get to it eventually, I just haven’t managed it yet!
The Rain was a pleasant surprise – I was hooked much more than I expected to be given how little I’d heard about it, and given that I’d heard quite a bit of negative feedback. The Storm just isn’t one I’ve got a copy of yet, but will definitely stay on the list of series to continue.
Ten Thousand Skies Above You
I really enjoyed the plot and the unique premise of A Thousand Pieces Of You, but I never connected with any of the main characters as much as I wanted to, so while Ten Thousand Skies Above You is one I want to read, it’s not one I’m desperate to get to.
