Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet.
As of this summer, I’ve been blogging for four years. FOUR YEARS. Incredible. I started it on a whim, and here I am, all this time later, still blogging away. Just because I’m blogging about books doesn’t mean that I’m reading more books — in fact, it’s probably the opposite. Sad to say, there are enough unread books in my house and on my Kindle that I could probably go a few years without buying a single book before I’d run out of new stuff to read.
So, here are 10 books that I swear I want to read, which I’ve owned for over four years… and which I still haven’t gotten around to.
1) Four and Twenty Blackbirds by Cherie Priest
2) Affinity by Sarah Waters
3) In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson
4) Lilith’s Brood by Octavia Butler
5) Little, Big by John Crowley
6) World War Z by Max Brooks
7) Other Kingdoms by Richard Matheson
8) Innocent Traitor by Alison Weir
9) The Children of Men by P. D. James
10) Sorcery & Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede
