"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Top Ten Tuesday - Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn't Get To

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists there at The Broke and the Bookish. They'd love us to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week they will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of their bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on their post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share.  If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. 
The topic this week is:
Ten Books We Meant To Read In 2017 But Didn't Get To

Oh, ho, ho do I have SEVERAL of these!  I am so bad at starting books and then leaving them, which I think falls into this category perfectly.  In addition, there are just some books that I got, was really excited about, then never read....so yeah, my bad!

I'm only going over 5, because these were all on my "Current Reads" shelf on Goodreads that I never bothered to finish on time.

 Everything Is Awful: And Other Observations by Matt Bellassai - This was suppose to be the 70th book I read in 2017, then oops, I never finished it.

 Escape from Asylum by Madeleine Roux - At least I finished the Asylum series itself, but with vacation, and the fact I wasn't driving back and forth to work, this audionovella was discarded.

 The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli - I have only read two pages of this book.  I don't know what my problem is, because I adored Simon Vs. the Homo-Sapiens Agenda.  But I'm going to get this one done, and fall in love!

 Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy - I know, I know, I know, what have I been doing!  I promise that I am going to finish this book, because Julie is an absolute peach and her books should be immensely enjoyed by all!

 Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst - I'm almost 50% done with this, and I just am "eh" about it.  I don't want to DNF because it's actually good, I just don't think it's great.  But I do want to finish it out.
