You might be saying to yourself, “Self, Lauren usually does Top Ten Tuesday”. You would be right. I don’t have the spoons to deal with ten books today, so I choose to go over to Top 5 Tuesday and give that a try! I might switch between the two here and there because I had fun going through my bookshelves, not my TBR area (it’s not a cart anymore) to find the books I haven’t read yet.
The topic for today’s post is all about books that have been on your TBR for a long time. A very long time.
Posion by Sarah Pinborough
Coming in at 208 pages, this is by far the shortest book on my TBR list. I have no idea why I haven’t read this yet, but I just remember being completely intrigued by this retelling when it first came out seven years ago.
His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik
I had my eye on this series for years before I picked the first four books up at a used book store five years ago. I knew absolutely nothing about them, except that they had dragons on the covers. I have since learned they are about the Napoleanic Wars, but with dragons.
Night Film by Marisha Pessl
I picked this one up at the recommendation of a friend. I never did get around to reading it because thrillers aren’t my genre, but I’m going to try and get to this one this year!
Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb
I picked this up many, many years ago and I’m not quite sure why I never read it. But I have seen it all over the bookish corners of the internet recently. Kinda makes me want to pick it up. Apparently I am swayed by the internet!
Hyperion by Dan Simmons
This book series has been out for 30 years, and I’ve never read it! It’s been in my TBR for a long while now. I can’t believe I’ve never read it. I forgot I even had it!
Gotta love a a post that makes you go through your entire backlist and makes you feel shame! Not really. I’m sure I have a lot more books than this that have been on my TBR for a while than what is listed above, but yes, it is called Top 5 Tuesday, I must restrain myself.
