Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Want to Finally Read in 2017

Top 5 Wednesday is a Booktube group which makes book related top five lists. I’m not very regular with my Youtube videos so I’ll post them here instead when I can.

For more info on the group looks here on the Goodreads page:


This week is ‘Books You Want to Finally Read in 2017’. These are those books you meant to read in 2016 or 2015 or 2014 and never got around to. There are way more than 5 but I’ll give it ago:



5) Dreamsongs by George R.R. Martin:

Ok, this isn’t one to read but to finish reading. It’s a collection of short stories that I started in May last year and still haven’t got halfway … yet. Its not that it isn’t good, I just keep finding distractions.



4) The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien:

Same as Dreamsongs, I even started it in the same month.




3) Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare:

Even I can’t believe I’ve yet to read this. I just don’t have a copy of it at home, it’s the only reason I can think of for why I haven’t read it yet, I really liked Clockwork Angel


2) Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor:

I have no excuses for this. I bought it in July at YALC yet it’s still unread.




1) Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan:

Again I bought it this year at YALC but I haven’t read it. What’s worse is Cate Tiernan is the author of my favourite book series – Sweep / Wicca – and I still haven’t read it. Shame on me.
