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:
The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi
(High priority — I hope to read or listen to this one by the end of August!)
Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q Sutanto
Ambush or Adore by Gail Carriger
A Twist of Fate by Kelley Armstrong
Gilded by Marissa Meyer
One By One by Ruth Ware
The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman
Dying With Her Cheer Pants On by Seanan McGuire
Red Sky Over Hawaii by Sara Ackerman
The Jetsetters by Amanda Eyre Ward
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?
