Coming Up With Excuses For Not Reading The Books I Said I Would in 2017

This list is purely referenced from my tbr posts on this blog, there are none of the many books I thought id read in 2017 but obviously didn’t, I’d need a novel for that list. We all have lists like that where we say we will do this and that but I’m an imperfect being (hard to admit to though) and I like doing what I shouldn’t (total rebel), but since I’m great at making excuses, I’ll come up with a plausible (possibly punny) excuse for each book. (To Add: I couldn’t even post this post in time for it to make sense but I love it too much not to post – procrastinating with love)

City Of Lost Souls – the part of my soul that needed to read this book right away got lost in the big city.

The Thousandth Floor – I only live on the 11th floor, I don’t think I should rush to the 1000th so quick.

Bone Gap – when the book is called bone gap but on the cover is a bee and a hive pattern, its kind of surreal and I think I should spend more time just wondering “what could it mean?” instead of reading it and figuring it out for myself.

Hexed – some witch told me I can only read this in October or she would hex me… too bad last October I spent too much time thinking about Halloween. Maybe next October?

Their Fractured Light – starbound has been the light that has kept me going with its beautiful characters and the character relationships. I don’t want to fracture the light it gives me by finishing the trilogy so quick!

Wayfarer – if I wanted to read this many books in such a busy year, id need time travel to make it possible

Everything Everything – this year it felt like I had everything on my to-do list, and I felt like I had to finish everything other than reading everything everything

Salt To The Sea – just waiting for the time I really want to cry, add some salt to my words and add my tears to the sea or something

The Crown – the selection series was over long ago and I should’ve been finished by now, crown me the queen of procrastinating if you want.

Stars Above – it just wasn’t written in the stars above our head that I should read this year

    hahaha! this is so clever and funny! tbh, for me 2017 was the year of buying books that i’d anticipated for months (some even for years! *cough* strange the dreamer *cough*) and then completely forgetting about them and not reading/finishing them at all. idk what’s wrong with me!

      1. agh! thank you so much for letting me know! it should link correctly now (i changed my web address about half a year ago, so i think that’s why it’s going haywire–but i just went to my profile now and reworked a few things manually), but just in case it’s:

  2. This is awesome 🙂 I love your excuses! I am such a mood reader that I try not to plan out books to read because I will almost always pick something else. However I have a few series I should finish but it has been so long since I read the last book I don’t remember enough to start the new book without a refresher.
