As for my original reading resolutions for this year, I did okay:
coming out in 2017:
Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth
Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
A Tragic Kind of Wonderful by Eric Lindstrom

Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller

Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book by Jennifer Donnelly
So, I only got to read one of the new releases I was looking forward to, but in my defense I also decided not to buy books this year and focus on my shelf, so that could be why.
on my shelf:
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah Maas
An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
In the Woods by Tana French

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch
The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkoski
The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I'm HOPING to finish the Outlander series this year (didn't finish, An Echo in the Bone is coming up soon)
I did pretty good on these, only 2 books and the rest of the Outlander series left. They'll carry over for 2018 resolutions :)
