Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week's topic is: Top Ten 2016 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn't Get To (But TOTALLY plan to)

*in no particular order
**also not included are the half dozen or so duologies that started this year! LOL! I knew then that I would be waiting to for the next and final book to read in a binge marathon, so those weren't ones I "meant" to read in 2016 but cannot WAIT to finish in 2017!

10. SOLDIER by Julie Kagawa--no excuse for this one! I failed epically! Though in part, after one review that I ended up reading I heard there was a cliffhanger and I gently set it aside...but I plan to read this one just before Legion!!
9. THE ROSE AND THE DAGGER by Renee Ahdieh--can't say for sure what happened here! I should've read this one already!
8. THE DARKEST MAGIC by Morgan Rhodes--again, no excuses. Though I will need to find a recap of book 1 hopefully!

7. TRUTHWITCH by Susan Dennard--I had intended to read this one, but then I don't know what happened really. But I plan to read it very soon!
6. THE SKYLIGHTER by Becky Wallace--again, I intended to binge read the duology, but then I broke and decided to read the first book, loved it, then by the time this one released I found I didn't have time for it.
5. GLASS SWORD by Victoria Aveyard--another one I was going to read but then I heard again of that dreaded cliffhanger and thought I'll just wait until the next one at least, though I think this one's a quartet...so I maybe might possibly give it another year! LOL!

4. FOREVER DOON by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon--I had wanted to read this series all in a row, but I caved! I had to read at least one book because I was planning to meet the authors (again). And then I found myself reading one after another after another! LOL!
3. A PROMISE OF FIRE by Amanda Bouchet--soooo wanted to read this one after hearing so many good reviews. But I flailed epically!
2. THE SHADOW QUEEN by C.J. Redwine--another one I REALLY wanted to read but just never got around to in time!

1. A COURT OF MIST AND FURY by Sarah J. Maas--I have no words. Bows head in epic shame!!!



  1. Great list! Glass Sword was on my list too. However, for some reason I've never heard of the cliffhanger! I've no idea where I've been haha! Although I think I did avoid all reviews of it. I just didn't have enough time last year. I've still to read ACOMAF too, but I only read ACOTAR in December so fingers crossed I'll read it soon.

    My TTT

  2. Excellent list! I think you'll be happy you waited to read ACOMAF. The wait for the next book has been unbearable (has literally read it three times). I really enjoyed The Darkest Magic. I thought it was a lot better than A Book of Spirits and Thieves. Hopefully the next one is just as good too.

    I never got to read The Shadow Queen or Truthwitch either. I think I'm going to wait until the Witchlands series is wrapping up to start it. Again, great list :)

  3. Lots of great covers. Hope the stories are as good as the covers.

    Here's my list!

  4. Great choice for your teaser. I've been curious about this book. And a wonderful showcase of reads.

    My TT from Carpe Bead'em

  5. I liked Truthwitch. It took me a while to get to it but I managed late in 2016. I have two this week - Beheld by Alex Flinn and A Perilous Undertaking by Deanna Raybourn. Happy reading!

  6. I hope you get to The Rose and the Dagger soon!!

  7. Eeep, read The Rose and the Dagger! Glass Sword was good too :D

    Brittany @ Brittany's Book Rambles

  8. Truthwitch and A Promise of Fire are my 2016 best reads! You so have to start these series. You will not regret it. I am guessing you started Truthwitch as it is your teaser- love this scene by the way.

    My TT

  9. I have the first Doon book, but haven't read it. I take it it's good?

    Thanks for visiting my TTT!

  10. Some great books on your list. I loved The Rose and the Dagger, The Skylighter, and Truthwitch. I see you are reading Truthwitch now. Good call. I hope you enjoy it.
    Cassi @ My Thoughts Literally

  11. You are disowned for not reading ACOMAF.

    I really wanted to like Truthwitch but it didn't work out for me, I hope you enjoy!

  12. I want to get to The Shadow Queen too! It sounds awesome!
    Krystianna @ Downright Dystopian

  13. You know you have some BIG bookish redemption to do right!? Start with A promise of fire then go to ACOMAF!

  14. I don't often read fantasy, so I'm not sure this book is for me. Great Teaser, however.
    My Tuesday post features MOONRISE.

  15. This sounds interesting — I might give it a go. Here's my link: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1rl

  16. I didn't really care for Red Queen so Glass Sword is on my maybe list. I have seen Truthwitch on a ton of lists today. I hope you enjoy these when you get to them.

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog!

  17. The Rose and the Dagger's cover is so eye-catching. Every time I see it I stop and look at it.

  18. I share your epic shame of not having read ACOMAF yet.
    My TTT: https://jjbookblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/10/top-ten-tuesday-91/

  19. *bows head in shame with you over ACOMAF* At least by not reading it last year, we won't have as long to wait between it and the third book.
    I've been curious about the Doon series for a long time. I think I might even have them all on my Kindle from when they were on sale, haha. It's impossible to catch up with all the books we want to read, isn't it?

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  20. I have so many of the books from your top ten list sittin on my TBR shelf as well. I hope we both get a chance to read them this year.

  21. Soldier, The Rose and the Dagger, Glass Sword, and a Court of Mist and Fury are all part of series I need to catch up with as well!

    ~Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

  22. I can't believe you didn't read Rogue or ACOMAF in 2016!! I only got into the Talon series because of you! Haha! I hope you love them when you get to read them XD

    Here are my Top Ten!

  23. The Shadow Queen looks like it'll be great. :)

    Lauren @ Always Me

  24. Gahhh you have got to read ACOMAF! It is amazing!
