Top Ten Tuesday (31): Top Ten Books That Have Been on my TBR the Longest

February 6, 2018 Top Ten Tuesday 21

**Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish and now moved to The Artsy Reader Girl.**

Ah, the neverending TBR. I remember many years ago, before I started blogging or really knew anything about book blogs to be honest, a friend recommended this cool website called Goodreads that was this great place to keep track of what you want to read/have read as well as help find new ones to add to the list. And I remember when I had like 30 books on my TBR and freaking out about it. Oh poor naive Sara. Fast forward 7 years and my numbers surpassing 1500+. Anyways, there are a few books that have been on my list since the beginning that I just never got around to reading yet. Here are a few!



Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma

I’ve always been a sucker for angsty, heartbreaking novels so this one has been on my TBR for a very long time.


Unwind (Unwind, #1)Unwind by Neal Shusterman

I have yet to check out a novel from this author but I’ve heard such brilliant things about his works. This came highly recommended from a friend but I just haven’t gotten around to it.


Half-Blood (Covenant, #1)Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout

I mean, everyone seemed to be talking about this book back when it was published. And everyone talks about this author. Then there is me who has yet to read her books….


Grave Mercy (His Fair Assassin, #1)Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Assassin nuns, right? Just an awesome sounding series I still hope to get to!


The Probability of MiraclesThe Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder

Another heartbreaker. I just know I need to be in the right frame of mind to read this one and hope I do just that at some point.


Storm (Elemental, #1)Storm by Brigid Kemmerer

I’ve had this on my TBR for so long! The author is easily becoming a new favorite with Letters to the Lost and More Than We Can Tell so I’m absolutely vowing to read this series this year!


Unfinished Series

Silence (Hush, Hush #3) by Becca Fitzpatrick

I read the first two books in the series many, many years ago, around the time of their publications. This is the series that started my love of angels and lead to me finding other great novels featuring angels as well, including The Mortal Instruments and the Unearthly series. But I just never got around to reading the this 3rd book, and obviously the 4th.


Dreamless (Starcrossed, #2)Dreamless (Starcrossed #2) by Josephine Angelini

I must admit, I remember zilch about Starcrossed, the first book in the series, except that I loved it. I’d love to finish the series someday.


The Death Cure (The Maze Runner, #3)The Death Cure (The Maze Runner #3) by James Dashner

Another series I never finished! The movie trailer has been peaking my interest a bit again. Perhaps the movie will inspire me to pick up the book. I’ve only seen the first movie so far but thought it was great.


The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #2)The Evolution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #2) by Michelle Hodkin

How is it that I can crave a sequel so much but then put it off after it finally publishes? As you can see, I do it a lot. It’s a bad habit. I think part of the reason is I can never recall the details after waiting a year. This book falls in that category.


 Going through my list and seeing all these books I just never got around to was a little sad. Especially since I own all but two of them. And I cannot believe how long it has been for a few of them too. So many books, so little time!


Help vote for my next ‘at last…’ read!

    Unwind was on my list too! My husband got me Scythe for my birthday in September (and I’m just now reading it) and he read it and then immediately wanted more books from Shusterman. I ended up buying Unwind and the sequel at our local used bookstore and he blew through them too. So I’m sure I’m going to love his books too.

      I know! I’ve had friends read Forbidden too and told me it is a must to check out.

      I enjoyed Vampire Academy so I’m curious if I will like Half-Blood or if I’ll be annoyed at the similarities. lol

    I love your At Last… idea!! My goal this year is to read a ton more backlist (like the 999 I have lying around). I voted for The Truth About Alice because I LOVEEEEED it. But I almost voted for Sway because Kat Spears is one of my faves and I own that book and need to read it. If you ever want to buddy read it, I’d so be down for that.

    As for the Mara Dyer series. The first book was my fave. I’m not a big fan of the direction it takes as it goes on– and the ending kinda pissed me off. But for whatever reason, I’m still debating on reading that new Noah Shaw book.

      Thanks! I desperately need to get rid of some of these ARCs so it sounded like a good way to do so. I’m down for a buddy read of Sway sometime too! I haven’t read anything from Kat Spears yet.

      I like when movies can inspire people to read the books. I watched Maze Runner and was kicking myself for never getting to the last one but I do have the sequel on my tv so maybe watching that will kick myself into gear to read it and see the last movie.
