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

t5w logo

Hey, all! I’ve skipped the last few Top 5 Wednesdays because they were categories I wasn’t totally excited about, but I’m back again now to share with you the top 5 books I want to finally read in 2017. These are all books that I’ve either had on my TBR for ages or are books that have come out awhile ago that I finally want to read. As usual, Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey and is now hosted by Sam. You can find the Goodreads group here. Lastly, these books are in no particular order.

the-night-circus5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern: This gained a lot of instant hype when it first came out, but I really had no interest at the time. Years later, there’s something I find intriguing about it. I think maybe my reading taste has just changed. Either way, I got a used copy of this, and I definitely want to get to it next year. It’s just sitting there on my shelf, looking way too pretty to ignore. Unfortunately, my end-of-year and January tbr are already pretty tight, so this’ll have to wait just a little longer.

american-gods4. American Gods by Neil Gaiman: I’ve had this book (and its sequel) for quite a long time now, but I keep putting it off because of its size. I may actually read it in January for a read-a-thon (more on that soon), but if I don’t get to it, then sometime later for sure. I can’t put this book off any longer. One of my goals this year was to read more Neil Gaiman, and I failed miserably at that, so that particular goal will probably just get carried over to 2017.

the-kiss-of-deception3. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson: I only recently traded with someone for a copy of this book, and that’s because I read an older work by this author and really didn’t like it. After that, I was super skeptical about this series for years. However, a lot of people I trust have really enjoyed this trilogy, and it’s gotten great reviews, so I definitely want to give it a try now. I suppose it is unfair of me to judge based on a work the author did a long time ago.

what-i-talk-about-when-i-talk-about-running2. What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami: I purchased this last year while I was abroad in London because I’d heard so much about the author and wanted to give him a try. I chose this book in particular because it had a pretty cover and because it was about long distance running, something near and dear to my heart. It looks like a quick, insightful read, but for some reason I just keep forgetting about it. It’s also on my TBR for January’s read-a-thon, but we’ll see if I get to it then…I feel like a broken record ha.

mistborn1. Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson: Okay, these books were huge a couple years ago, and I own the whole trilogy, but I still haven’t finished it. I’m actually about halfway through the first book, but I ended up putting it down indefinitely to read other new releases, and then I forgot about it. I really enjoyed what I did read, but I hate just abandoning books halfway, so I definitely need to finish this one in 2017. I’m honestly ashamed that I never completed these books oops.

There are, of course, plenty more books that could’ve been on this list, but these are just the ones I desperately need to read. Hopefully I can finally finish them all next year (I think it’s quite doable).

What books do you plan to finally read in 2017? Let me know below!

Until next time,
