It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday!
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.
- Bloodring by Faith Hunter ~ Hmm… I don’t remember buying this one…
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
