Top Ten Tuesday: Books From My Past Seasonal TBR Posts I STILL Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Books From My Past Seasonal TBR Posts I STILL Haven’t Read.

My initial thought was — um… yes, I have those! Don’t we all?

BUT — as I went back through my seaosnal TBR posts, I had to go all the way back to winter 2019/2020 (and doesn’t that feel like another lifetime?) in order to come up with 10 that I (a) haven’t read yet and (b) still do really want to read!

Moving backwards chronologically, my 10 are:

Spring 2022:

The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi

(High priority — I hope to read or listen to this one by the end of August!)

Winter 2021/2022:

Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q Sutanto

Spring 2021:

Ambush or Adore by Gail Carriger

A Twist of Fate by Kelley Armstrong

Gilded by Marissa Meyer

Winter 2020/2021:

One By One by Ruth Ware

Fall 2020:

The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

Dying With Her Cheer Pants On by Seanan McGuire

Spring 2020:

Red Sky Over Hawaii by Sara Ackerman

The Jetsetters by Amanda Eyre Ward

Winter 2019/2020:

Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik

Yes, that’s actually 11 — I couldn’t leave out one from a TBR list that still had two left!

I have to say… I’m a little proud of myself, because having to go back three years to come up with 10 books means that I’ve been pretty good at sticking to my reading plans!! Either that, or I’ve gotten much better at picking books for my TBR that I know I’ll want to read.

For the sake of being complete, I thought I’d also include a look at the books from the same timeframe’s TBR lists that I ended up DNFing. For the books below, I thought I’d want to read them, but for all sorts of reasons, they either didn’t end up holding my interest or didn’t appeal to me enough to see all the way through:

Are there any of my remaining TBR picks (in my top 11) that you’d especially recommend?

  1. It’s hard to keep up with reading lists, isn’t it? I’m always falling behind with mine. Love the books on your list. I want to read the Kaiju one, too. 😀

  2. I had quite a lot from the last couple of years because I had a big reading slump in 2021 so I went completely off list with a lot of my reading and was just reading whatever I felt like! Prior to last year though, I would generally do quite well on TBR lists, there were usually only a few I carried forward and I always read them eventually even if not in the season initially intended. I hope you enjoy all of these whenever you read them.

  3. Wow!! That’s an amazing job! My mood reading kills my TBR plans. haha! I read Dial A for Aunties last month and I liked it. I still need to read Gideon. I really want to but haven’t taken it off my cart yet! I’m planning for October!

    My Top Ten!

      • Yes, that has been happening to me a lot lately! I try to only do 2-3 arcs a month so I can read my own books too. Lately, I’ve been committing to too many and have barely had time to get my arcs finished in time! Really slowed down my reading. It’s so hard to say no!! 🤦🏻‍♀️

          • Yep! I know, exactly what you mean. I had requested the second book in a series months ago. I had wanted to read the first book and figured this would make me do it. I had like 6 months until the second book released and figured I’d get it done. I never got an approval until last week. It comes out in a few weeks. SO…. crunch time! I need to slow my roll and give myself a couple months this fall to read my own books! Will I though?! It’s so hard to say no! 🙂
