Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s all about that TBR again. More specifically, the books that have been marked as to read for the longest time and guess what? I still haven’t read them.
Thankfully Goodreads keeps perfect track of all of it so it was quite easy to compile this list. Though I did not just take the oldest books, as my TBR is in dire need of updating and some books I don’t even know what they are about anymore or some books are just not my taste anymore. And honestly, some classics have been on my TBR the longest but I’m not sure I’ll ever be in the mood to get to them.
So instead, these are the books that have been on my TBR for the longest AND I still feel like I really want to read someday soon.
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
Ok, I may not remember exactly what this is about, but I do know I still REALLY want to read this. Plus I think all books in this series are out now so I can binge-read!
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows
I actually have a physical copy of this on my shelf for years now. Why I still haven’t read it, I do not know.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Will I be able to read this one before the movie comes out this year? Stay tuned.
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
I got a copy for Christmas two years ago and haven’t started it yet. The shame!
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I wanted to see this one before the movie came out. I failed.
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
Ok here I’ve just been scared of the heartbreak this book is certain to cause me and I’ve been procrastinating until I’m in the right mood for it. I’ve been procrastinating for at least 3 years already.
Vicious by V.E. Schwab
I adore V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic trilogy so I have no excuse for not having read Vicious yet.
Written in Red by Anne Bishop
I think this is number one on my ‘want-to-read’ list, it sounds amazing and has been highly praised by trusted fellow bloggers. I put it first in every reading challenge I take and yet… I still have not read it yet. Why? Why, Lindsey, why?
And I Darken by Kiersten White
Well, if I wait just a bit more, I’ll be able to binge-read the entire trilogy, so I guess that’s the upside of procrastinating on reading books…
