Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday | Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest

Hey friends,

Sorry for disappearing this last week. I was in one of the moods where I just didn’t feel like doing anything and I didn’t feel like forcing myself to blog. I’m definitely back to blogging and have plans for daily posts, but we’ll see what happens lol.

Also, my January wrap up, haul, and February TBR will be up soon. Oh, and I have like four reviews coming your way, so prepare for some slight blog spam!

I hope you have all had a wonderful week! Can you believe we’re already into February?? Where is 2018 going?

Anyways, today is Tuesday which means that it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday! For those of you not familiar with Top Ten Tuesday, it was a meme created by the lovely bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish, but was moved to That Artsy Ready Girl in 2018. Be sure to check out Jana’s blog for prompts for the rest of the year!

This week for Top Ten Tuesday we’re going to be talking about books that I liked, but that I don’t remember much (or anything) about. Personally, I love this prompt! I’ve read a lot of books in my life (most notably the last 12 months) and there are several that I remember really liking but don’t remember much about or I can’t remember important details.

For this post, I had trouble narrowing down the list since I have some books I’ve recently acquired, but the publication date is from a while ago and some books I got when they just came out (which was a few months ago) but I’ve owned them for longer than others.

I decided to go with the books I’ve physically (or digitally) have owned the longest (and are in NY) and still haven’t read.

1. City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare (owned the longest)

2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

3. Windwitch by Susan Dennard

4. Flame in the Mist by Reneé Ahdieh (still mad I haven’t read this one yet!!)

5. Wicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popović 

6. House of Furies by Madeleine Roux

7. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

8. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

9. A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess

10. The Giver by Lois Lowry

For almost all of these books, I was excited to read them or intrigued when I first acquired them. Since then, I have either been more interested in something else or my reading mood has shifted. Like many readers, I am a HUGE mood reader and how much I like a book really depends on if I’m in the mood for that genre since if I’m not, I tend to pick out more flaws with the genre as opposed to when I’m in the mood for that genre/looking for those tropes or similarities (if that makes sense).

Almost all of these books I plan on reading soon since I am still interested in them. The only exception (right now) is House of Furies since that feels like a more fall/Halloween read lol.

Have you read any of these books? Thoughts?

What are some books that have been on your TBR the longest?

Be sure to let me know below!

  1. Dennard’s books have been on my TBR since the first one came out. I was so excited to read it back then and even got myself a copy but then forgot about it.
    Gone Girl is really good and so is the Giver. I highly recommend both.

  2. Ahhh I’ve been meaning to read City of Bones for so long it’s just I keep quitting after ch. 1. Hopefully I’ll conquer all the books this summer.

    Throne of Glass was a grudging okay–the series gets worse and less cohesive as you go on, though.

    Windwitch was about the same as Truthwitch but it’s got some exciting antihero moments.

    Flame in the Mist was really good! I forgot everything that happened (common with all of Ahdieh’s books I read, unfortunately)

    Wicked Like a Wildfire was WAY too flowery and a very slow read that I didn’t really enjoy. Would not recommend unless you have a very high tolerance for this sort of writing.

    A Shadow Bright and Burning felt very 5 yrs ago “chosen one” fantasy which ended up being very cliché for me. If this is one of the tropes you like, I’d recommend. If not, maybe consider checking out another fantasy!

    That’s all the input I have on the books on your TBR! Good luck!
