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 I Was SO EXCITED to Get, but Still Haven’t Read. I have plenty of these! (Don’t we all?)
To keep it simple, I went back through my preorder spreadsheet (yes, I keep track of my book orders via an Excel spreadsheet!), and discovered plenty of books that I ordered well in advance of the release date… and still haven’t gotten around to reading. Sigh…
I only went back through my last 4 – 5 years of book buying — I’m sure I have plenty of older books that would fit this list too!
My top 10 books (and the year each was purchased) are:
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik (2018)
Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness (2018)
Someday by David Levithan (2018
Death of an Eye by Dana Stabenow (2018)
The City in the Middle of the Night by Charlie Jane Anders (2019)
The Five by Hallie Rubenhold (2020)
When We Were Magic by Sarah Gailey (2020)
Arctic Fury by Greer Macallister (2020)
Ambush or Adore by Gail Carriger (2021)
The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi (2022)

I’m so excited for all of these! Since I just did a summer TBR post a couple of weeks ago that included a bunch of new releases for June through August, today I’m focusing on books coming out in fall to early winter. And the scary thing is, most of these are being released in September. How will I possibly have the time to read them all?
