Top 5 Wednesday #29: Books I Didn’t Get to in 2017


Welcome to the first top 5 wednesday of 2018!

Today’s topic is about books that I didn’t get to in 2017, which is A LOT. Honestly, there were so many 2016-2015 releases I promised I would read, as well as some of my most anticipated 2017 releases, but I managed to FAIL them all. Here are some of them, and we will start it on a positive note.

Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins

I FINALLY FINISHED THIS SERIES GUYS! It took me so long because so many people said this series went downhill and I do feel the second book is so different (in a bad way) from the first book. The first book was so much fun, the second one was so mopey and full of drama. But this book? This book totally redemeed the series; it’s not as fun as the first book, but it’s so much better and I love how much my baby Harper has grown! ❤

Review will be up on Friday!

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I love Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, but I do feel like it went downhill and the writing become too flowery. But I am still curious about this book, especially since so many people seem to love it and that cover is too pretty to be sitting ignored on my shelf ✨

Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee

This is my most anticipated release of 2017, but of course I didn’t get to it last year. I was too caught up with reading other books and ended up ignoring this precious baby. I put this on March tbr and I really REALLY hope I could get to it this year.

The Merciless by Danielle Vega

“Again?” says the reader, as they look with disbelief at the blogger. Yes dear reader, after 2 years, I didn’t get to it either on Halloween 2017. I was too caught up with Jane Eyre and since Halloween had passed, I wasn’t in the mood for it. Let’s hope there’s nothing that will come between us this year.

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand

I love historical fiction, but I rarely read a book in this genre. In 2018, I want to make an effort to read more HF, and this book is the first of many. I love Cynthia Hand’s Unearthed series, and I heard so many amazing things about this book, I really can’t wait to read it!

What are the books you didn’t get to in 2018?

  1. I didn’t get to Strange the Dreamer yet, either, even though I won a copy from a giveaway. I actually loaned it to a friend recently so I’m not sure when I’ll get to it. I hope you get to My Lady Jane soon! I absolutely love that one.


  2. I read Rebel Belle last year, but never started the second book because I also heard that it wasn’t as good as the first book… maybe I’ll find time to give it a try this year 🙂


  3. My Lady Jane is hilarious! I loved every second of it. The Rebel Belle books was quite funny as well. I enjoyed the series a lot and am excited we have new Hawkins to read this year!


  4. Strange the Dreamer made my list, too. It was one of my most anticipated ’17 releases, then just never got to it 😦 I’ve been on the waiting list for The Gentleman’s Guide for a couple of months, and I’m so excited to read it soon.


    1. Yess! I plan to read The Princess Bride next month so I can read My Lady Jane in the following month, because I’ve heard it has a lot of references to The Princess Bride and I want to understand them 😀 Also it doesn’t hurt that I’ve heard AMAZING things about The Princess Bride!
