Top 5 Wednesday : Books You Didn't Get To In 2017

Welcome to my first Top 5 Wednesday. I watched a lot of these on Youtube throughout 2017 and seeing as I've given up on the idea of starting my own channel I thought I would incorporate the series on my blog. I don't think I'll be doing all 52 weeks of the year because I just haven't read enough yet and I'll end up repeating myself with a lot of books but my goal is to do two a month.

Edit: Prepare for lots of 'I really want to read this' and 'I'll definitely be getting to this soon'.

Without any further ado here are 5 books I didn't find time for in 2017 but that I'm making a priority this year.

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
I read the This Savage Song duology in 2017 and bloody loved it so I bought ADSOM but never got around to it. One of my goals of this year is to read as much Schwab as I can get my hands on so this will definitely be in an upcoming  recap.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I just know I'm never going to pick this up off my shelf and read it so I've been waiting for the audiobook to be available from my library to give me the kick I need. It's mine at the end of February so there isn't much longer.

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
I've had this on my kindle for months and I really just need to bite the bullet. This has over a 4 on goodreads and nobody I follow has rated it less than that so I'll definitely be getting to this soon.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
I was so determined to read this in 2017 and I just kept picking other things off the shelf over it. It's massive! I know they say don't judge a book by it's movie but I really love the Winona version so I really do want to read this.

Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor
I read and adored the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy towards the end of 2017 so this had rocketed to the top of my TBR. I've actually already read it this month and I'm still trying to work on my feelings so hopefully by my recap at the end of the month I'll have cohesive thoughts.

The only one I think I risk leaving 2018 without having read is Little Women and that's just because lengthy books scare me, never mind lengthy classics. I really love the film though so I'm hoping being familiar with the general plot and characters might help.

Do you have any books you put off despite thinking you'd probably enjoy?
