Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week gives you a different theme and you come up with a list of ten(ish) books that fit that theme. This week’s theme is books that have been on your TBR from before you started blogging that you haven’t gotten around to reading yet.
I’m going to be completely honest with you guys: I could probably write a list of 50+ books that have been sitting on my TBR (physically on my shelves or just on a wishlist somewhere) from before I even started blogging. Granted, my blog is less than a year old, so this isn’t quite as bad as if I had been blogging for a few years, but still… It’s pretty ridiculous.
But since this is Top Ten Tuesday and not Top 50 Tuesday, I’ll try to limit myself to just 10 books. 😛
I saw this book being recommended like crazy on Tumblr a few years ago and I think I bought this with Christmas money back in 2014. Have I read it? Of course not.
You all know how much I love dystopian books and this is one of the more popular ones, so I HAD to read it. I got it as a Christmas present from my older brother years ago – maybe 2013 or 2014? I’m not sure exactly. All I know is it’s been sitting in my room for years and still hasn’t been read.
I actually was supposed to read this in my English class senior year of high school (that’s in 2012-2013). I started reading it and really liked it, but didn’t finish it for some reason (at this point, I have no idea why I stopped reading it). Ever since then, I’ve been wanting to pick it back up and back in November or December of 2015, I finally bought my own copy because I thought that would get me to read it, but… apparently not.
I’m actually slightly embarrassed to admit that I haven’t read this series yet. When I was in high school, I remember one of my friends telling me I should read the series because she really liked it and thought I would too. Sooo I bought the first book and like all the other books on this list, it’s sat in my room ever since.
I bought this along with the next four books in a big Amazon haul last summer and haven’t read any of them yet. Why???
My sister has read this before I have and has begged me to read it because she loved it, but I still haven’t. This is the last one I got in that Amazon haul that I haven’t read yet.
This is possibly the most embarrassing one on here, simply because I have had this for almost a decade. I’m pretty sure my brother gave this to me when I was 12 or 13 and told me that I would love it and here I am, 21 years old and I still haven’t read it. Ridiculous, I know.
So, here are 10 books that have been sitting around waiting for me to read them since before I even had a blog!
