I’m a little embarrassed about the number of 2016 books I meant to read last year but just didn’t get to. Especially the ones that are solicited ARCs. ?
In other words, this is my guilty list. Or my naughty list.
2016 Books I Meant To Read Last Year, But I’m Making a Priority in 2017:
- The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder. Super cute romance and Canadian and on all my friends’ best-of lists.
- Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum. Super cute epistolary romance. And I meant to read it with people!
- Suffer Love by Ashley Herring Blake. This romance and family dynamics story was on my most-anticipated last year. WHY?!
- The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis. If this feminist, dark take on dystopian doesn’t end up being amazing, I will eat my hat.
- Lucky Few by Kathryn Ormsbee. Another summer contemp I was highly anticipating. I just bought it, so I don’t feel TOO bad?
- A Tyranny of Petticoats ed. by Jessica Spotswood. Another feminist book – Jess from @ Read My Breath Away sent this one to me, and I feel bad I haven’t cracked it open yet.
- Tumbling by Caela Carter.This gymnastics book was really hard to find in Canada, so less guilt about not reading yet. Finally got it thanks to a birthday gift from Melissa @ YA Bookshelf (thanks!).
- Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood. As You Like It retelling and written by Canada’s leading author. I haven’t read it yet. Ugh ugh ugh.
- When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore. Everyone I know loves this LGBTQ love story & I’m just like, “I’m sorry I haven’t read this perfect book yet.”?
- The Inside of Out by Jenn-Marie Thorne. I adored JMT’s last book, The Wrong Side of Right. This one is about being a good ally and WHY haven’t I read it?
- The Season by Jonah Lisa Dyer and Stephen Dyer. This one is so embarrassing. I had so much fun hosting JL & Stephen on my blog, and this soccer-playing debutante book sounds so like a Tiff book. I’m sorry!
- Wonder Women by Sam Maggs. Another anthology of fierce women, another Canadian, and I just didn’t. #fail
