Top Ten Tuesday – August 23, 2016: Ten Books Still on my TBR from Before I Started Blogging


August 23, 2016

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s topic was Ten Books Still on my TBR from Before I Started Blogging

When I first started my blog back in 2012, I was barely into YA. Since then, my reading list has not only expanded exponentially in the way of YA but also in various genres. Lots of books have fallen by the wayside that I’ve been meaning to read and there are some books that are still on my TBR from four years ago (including some that I own!) that I just haven’t gotten to yet:

  • DRACULA by Bram Stoker | Date Added: 10/31/10 | I bought this at the used bookstore and added it to my shelves on October 31, 2010 (ooh spooky). It’s the oldest unread book on my TBR so it deserved the first mention!
  • BUMPED by Megan McCafferty | Date Added: 8/4/11 | I was super into dystopian when I discovered it in 2011 and added every dystopian book I could find to my TBR. Still haven’t gotten around to this one.
  • MUM’S THE WORD by Kate Collins | Date Added: 8/14/11 | I was also super into cozy mysteries when I first got REALLY back into reading in 2011. I bought the first books in this series at Border’s closing sales HA.
  • WICKED APPETITE by Janet Evanovich | Date Added: 8/17/11 | I was still working on Stephanie Plum and not very far in when this new series came out. I finally caught up to Stephanie Plum this year and haven’t started any other Evanovich series yet.
  • GREGOR THE OVERLANDER by Suzanne Collins | Date Added: 9/25/11 | After finishing The Hunger Games trilogy, I wanted everything by Suzanne Collins! I still haven’t read GREGOR because I just don’t feel the draw to middle grade… But I still own it.
  • ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis | Date Added: 11/26/11 | I don’t really have a reason why I haven’t read this yet. I guess so many books, so little time! I actually won a copy of the whole trilogy ages ago and yet… there they sit.
  • ALL THESE THINGS I’VE DONE by Gabrielle Zevin | Date Added: 12/1/11 | Another dystopian I just had to have! And then never read. It sounds good, though…
  • UNDER THE DOME by Stephen King | Date Added: 1/11/12 | I added this to my TBR looong before the show was even an idea. I got it from a book swap and then this BRICK landed on my door! I had no idea it was that big… I just thought it sounded interesting HA. Its size has pretty much prevented me from getting into it.
  • SLIDE by Jill Hathaway | Date Added: 3/1/12 | I actually had a book idea for something like this (before I knew this book existed) and I don’t think that’s WHY I added it to my TBR but it ended up there anyway. I actually own it now but alas. Still haven’t read it.

Which books have been sitting on your TBR forever? Any of these books something I should pick up after four years of waiting? Or should I start scrapping ones I’m not sure I’ll read?

    American Pastoral and Crime and Punishment. I grabbed them one time thinking “oh I’ll read a couple of classics” yeah. They’re still there. Eventually I’ll read them.
