For anyone out there with a To Be Read list that seems like it will never end, this challenge is for you! This is all about making your own personal list of books 5? 10? 20? 30? more? that you want to commit to reading in 2017.

Books can be published in any year, be from any genre, and from any category: adult, YA, MG, Graphics, NF, etc titles.  All that matters is that they are books you want to be sure not to forget as that TBR list continues to grow! These aren’t the only titles you will read over the year, but a list to help guide your reading. A list to lure you back to a reading path you have set for yourself. Many, many new books will tempt you! Go ahead and read them but having a list like this ensures you will not forget some titles you were determined to read.

#MustReadin2017 There's a book for that

If you would like to create and share a list, contact me on twitter (@CarrieGelson) or leave a link in the comments and I will add your list to the #MustReadin2017 lists below. Everyone is welcome! I will update regularly so if you are just seeing this now – go make a list! We’ll be waiting for you.

Someone asked me about the image for this year – this was taken in my classroom early one morning. Two students were scanning the shelves adding to their To Read lists as they talked titles, authors and genres. I thought this perfectly represented how each of us has been searching on-line and actual book shelves, book blogs and book lists to create  personal #MustReadin2017 lists!

Three updates seemed to work for us this year. If you also leave me your twitter handle (if you are on twitter) I will send you a reminder. For those not on twitter, please mark these dates in your calendar. Update posts can be shared on or around these dates – just leave your link in the comment section of my post and share it on twitter using #MustReadin2017

Spring update: Thursday April 6th, 2017

Fall update: Thursday September 7th, 2017

Year end update: Thursday December 28th, 2017

Update posts are purely optional!

They can take whatever format you wish: highlighting your favourites, reasons for not reading, simply a list of what you have read, etc. Here are last year’s update posts on my blog as an example: spring, fall, year-end. Other bloggers do much more creative things than me.

Ready for some inspiration?

  4. Thanks again for hosting this Carrie, I made sure not to peek at any of the other lists, as mine was too long, except for yours. I think I see the book you remembered to add. A Tale Dark and Grimm was really good, and I have so many girls reading that right now. Once one started, they all wanted it next. I had to find an extra copy. “It’s scary, but I have to read it.” Here is my list for this year, http://tinyurl.com/h4a6cou
