You will, you will, you will.


Every Tuesday over at  The Broke and Bookish we all get to look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  After this week Top Ten Tuesday will be moving to That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is :

Ten Books I Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To (but mean to read in 2018):

  1. Tower of Thorns by Juliet Marillier.  The books in the Blackthorn & Grim series are beautiful to look at and equally beautiful to read.
  2. Veil of the Deserters by Jeff Salyards.  I loved the first book in this series (Scourge of the Betrayers and really need to pick this one up.
  3. The Lesser Dead by Christopher Buehlman – New York in the 1970s – and vampires.  Of course I have to read this.
  4. Lost Boy by Christina Henry – will I ever get bored of retellings or reimagining of Peter Pan?  Possibly not.
  5. The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine – to quote from GRs ‘a “gorgeous and bewitching” reimagining of the fairytale of the Twelve Dancing Princesses as flappers during the Roaring Twenties in Manhattan.  OMG – why haven’t I read this one yet.
  6. Doomsday Book by Connie Willis – I heard such glowing things for this one that I rushed to buy it – and yet here it sits.  Go figure.
  7. Moon Over Soho by Ben Aaronovitch – a series I intend to complete.
  8. Beyond Redemption by Michael R Fletcher – the ultimate grim dark??  I need to read it and find out.
  9. The Straight Razor Cure by Daniel Polansky.  This book received 5*s from Mark Lawrence – which is good enough for me.
  10. Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier – the third book in the Blackthorn and Grim series – now if I can only get my act together and read No.1 this can then happen.  Make it so.
