Books I Really Want To Read & Series I want To Start in 2017!

A lot of book lovers are also book hoarders, we simply buy too many books because we love them so much. I have a goal for 2017 to read as many of the books that is on my TBR shelves as possible. I really need to cut down on my TBR books and read the books that I have procrastinated picking up, some of them I have even owned for years. This is the books I really want to read in 2017, this list will not contain any new releases or 2017 releases as I don’t own them yet.

  1. Mistborn is awesome! Sanderson is one of my favorite authors πŸ™‚ I hope you’ll enjoy it! I’m hoping to read This Savage Song in 2017 too. Though I plan to tackle A Darker Shade of Magic trilogy first. Hope we’ll both be able to read the books we want to read πŸ™‚


  2. I’ve read some of these books and they are amazing! I hope you love Mistborn (I love it!) I really need to read The Lies of Locke Lamora and I also want to start The Dresden Files, but that one is so daunting! That series has like a million books πŸ˜€ Oh, I want to read so many in this list. You have a great reading year ahead of you. πŸ™‚ Happy holidays!


    1. Thank you πŸ˜€ Yeah everyone says I should read Mistborn and raves about it, I can’t wait to start that series.

      You should read The Lies of Locke Lamora, it is my favorite read of the year, it is so good.

      I know the Dresden Files has so many books, and I heard it is going to get better with each book.


  3. The Mistborn series is so good!! I’m excited to hear what you think of it 😁
    I also want to read The Handmaid’s Tale and Station Eleven next year.
    Happy Holidays!! ✨


  4. You have such a great selection of books here! It’s rather exciting that you get to read them for the first time. I sometimes think back on when I read LotR for the first time and didn’t yet know what would happen!


  5. There’s a challenge I am taking part in called Beat The Backlist by Novelknight. It is a year long challenge where you try to read books from your TBR. I think that would be perfect for you. It’s no pressure, but if you want, you can earn points for your Hogwarts House, too. I’m doing it w/o the points, because I have 700 plus books on my TBR and I have to get some read instead of always going for the new books. I have a challenge I’m doing for my ARCs, too.
    Something you might want to think about…


      1. Ok, it’s not just me! I don’t know if it’s weird…but it seems common, and there’s a correlation…so I’m wondering if we all share certain traits? πŸ€”
