Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn’t Get To

Ah, ha ha ha ha. So, my entire to be read list? I won’t feel guilty, though; my tbr list isn’t tied to any particular year. Nevertheless, here are five books that in 2017 I really wanted to read, and did not.

  • Rebel Seoul by Axie Oh
  • Eating Matters by Kara-Lee Macdonald
  • Runs With Courage by Joan M. Wolf
  • Spinning by Tillie Walden
  • The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker

  3. Dreams Made of Night – Tochi Onyebuchi
  4. Always and Forever, Lara Jean – Jenny Han
  5. Thick as Thieves – Megan Whalen Turner

Basically, all the big hits. *cries*
