Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Didn’t Get Around to in 2016


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week the theme was Top Ten 2016 releases I meant to read but didn’t get to (but TOTALLY plan to). There are…ahem…a ton of books that fall into this category! Here is my best attempt to pick out the top ten books published in 2016 that I most regret NOT reading yet.

1. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (YA Fantasy)
2. Timekeeper by Tara Sim (YA Fantasy, Steampunk)
3. Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst (YA Fantasy)

4. The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead (Historical fiction)
5. Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi (Historical fiction)
6. Swing Time by Zadie Smith (Contemporary fiction)

7. Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance (Nonfiction, Memoir, Politics)
8. Lab Girl by Hope Jahren (Nonfiction, Memoir, Science)
9. Born A Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah (Nonfiction, Memoir)
