Top Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To (and totallyyyy plan to get to in 2018!!)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they provide a topic, and you choose ten book related things to answer the topic. This week we’ve each decided to pick five each, making our combined total ten. The topic is the incredibly relevant (and shameful) ‘Top Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To (and totallyyyy plan to get to in 2018!!)’

Tanaya’s Top Five

1. Zenith by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings

I tried to read this book in 2017. I got about 100 pages in and had to put it down. At the time I was just really tired and found it difficult to get into the world without wanting to fall asleep, and I decided it was best for the book if I returned to it later. It is on my TBR for this month, so this one will definitely be getting read in 2018.

Bookception: Books About Books

I love books. (Though I think that would be fairly obvious already!) The only thing better than books themselves are books about books! And in the last few weeks I’ve read THREE!

The Diary of a Bookseller was an absolute delight. I have been a bookseller for the past five years and this just felt so relevant to my life! Continue reading “Bookception: Books About Books”

Five Favourites of 2017

Tanaya’s 2017 Favourites

Ask any book lover to tell you their favourite book and I’m sure they’ll have a struggle narrowing it down to just one. Even picking five favourites of 2017 was difficult because there were just so many incredible books we both read.

I in particular have found that my reading tastes have shifted immensely in the last twelve months. When looking at all the books I read last year, a significant number were adult fiction as opposed to YA. Whilst once upon a time the thought of my favourite books no longer being my favourites somewhat saddened me, I now am excited for the all the fantastic books I’ve yet to discover and fall in love with.

What We’re Currently Reading

The first book I picked up in 2018 was The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith. It wasn’t incredible but it was an addictive crime novel with an easy to follow story arc. I am now reading Boy Swallows Universe by Trent Dalton. This novel isn’t out until July 2018, but I have a very early reading copy from work (YAY!). I’m only a hundred pages in, but I’m finding it a little reminiscent of Jasper Jones, which is one of my favourite Australian novels. I expect great things.

Top Ten New to Us Authors We Read in 2017

Tanaya’s Top Ten!

  1. Celeste Ng

I was lucky enough to visit Book Expo America in 2017, and one book I saw so many times whilst I was there was Little Fires Everywhere. The cover intrigued me so much, but I was unlucky in trying to get an advanced copy. Flash forward to its release, I picked the book up and went into it having no idea that it would be one of my favourite books of 2017. I absolutely adored this book, and have since ordered Ng’s other novel, Everything I Never Told You. I can’t wait for it to arrive so I can read this one too!
