Top Ten Tuesday

Posted January 10, 2017 by Nicky in General / 8 Comments

This week’s theme is “2016 releases I meant to read and didn’t get round to”. I didn’t think I’d manage this, but then I had a look at my list, and… ah. Right.

Cover of Revenger by Alastair Reynolds Cover of Ghost Talkers by Mary Robinette Kowal Cover of Necessity by Jo Walton Cover of Children of Earth and Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay Cover of Lois Lane: Double Down by Gwenda Bond

  1. Revenger, by Alastair Reynolds. I need to apologise to my sister. All the excitement, and I never got round to this one…
  2. Ghost Talkers, by Mary Robinette Kowal. I’d been anticipating this since it was announced, and yet. Still love that cover so much, too.
  3. Necessity, by Jo Walton. I’m just hiding my face in shame here, guys.
  4. Children of Earth and Sky, by Guy Gavriel Kay. I even had an ARC. But nope.
  5. Double Down, by Gwenda Bond. I loved the first book. Why haven’t I picked this up yet? Whyyy?
  6. A Gathering of Shadows, by V.E. Schwab. I think I need to reread the first book, first. Oh no, etc.
  7. Magic Binds, by Ilona Andrews. Again, I even had the ARC. Whyyy, self.
  8. Red Right Hand, by Chris Holm. I feel bad about this, because I promised a review, but it got caught up in being busy with my wedding.
  9. Ninefox Gambit, by Yoon Ha Lee. The author is my mother’s penpal and even sent a signed review copy. I’m a bad person.
  10. Too Like the Lightning, by Ada Palmer. I’m sorry, okay?

Gah. Now I feel bad.

On the other hand, that means I still have some awesome books in my future.

  1. I feel your pain…I’m right up there with you! I had so many I wanted to get to last year and didn’t but with tbrs the size of hours, we can’t get everything done. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!

  2. If it helps, I’ve still got The Just City on my shelf unread… and I’m only just reading A Darker Shade of Magic (poor you, having to put yourself through that again, eh?)

    I somehow missed Too Like the Lightning completely, so consider me ashamed. And yes, I’m feeling mildly guilty that I like the sound of the story but I also *really* like that font…
