Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read

In this case, I’m using books physically on my bookshelf. There will be a look at my Goodreads TBR list shortly, but when I read TBR books I’m hoping to prioritize ones I actually have.

    1. Bloodring by Faith Hunter ~ Hmm… I don’t remember buying this one…
    2. The Devil & Dan Cooley by Holly Lisle and Walter Spence ~ I looked for this one for ages, and finally found it in a used book store. I’m not giving up on it now.
    3. Mall, Mayhem, & Magic by Holly Lisle and Chris Guin ~ I found this one as the same time as the one listed above. Ditto not giving up on it.
    4. Minerva Wakes by Holly Lisle ~ I was on a Holly Lisle kick for a while, where I bought every book of hers I saw in stores. But I found I didn’t like them all, so I stopped. I liked some, though, and this blurb sounded like it might be one that I liked. I haven’t quite gotten up the nerve to try yet.
    5. Bronze Gods by A.A. Aguirre ~ I don’t remember buying this one, either. It seems either I went on a book buying spree when I picked up things that sounded interesting but weren’t on my TBR yet, or I was gifted a bunch of books.
    6. Magic Lost, Trouble Found by Lisa Shearin ~ I think I remember buying this one, but I don’t remember why. Hopefully it will turn out to be a good book.
    7. Deathwish by Rob Thurman ~ This one I know I bought. Thurman has been on my online TBR list for a while, and I thought buying the book would encourage me to read the book sooner rather than later. It didn’t work.
    8. The House of the Four Winds by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory ~ Is it wrong to hope that having a co-author will make Lackey enjoyable again? Because that (plus an interesting plot) is why I bought this book.
    9. The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb ~ These were gifted to me by my sister, I think. And then they got moved–unintentionally–to the back TBR pile and I forgot I had them.
    10. Venom by Jenifer Estep ~ This was another gift, but I procrastinated reading it because I forgot the details of the beginning of the series. I think it’s time to admit that I’m never going to remember unless I re-read the beginning (and I’m not likely to do that) and just read this book and hope the author left me enough clues to remember previous plots.
