Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Have Been on My TBR List The Longest




I'm participating in my first Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. This week’s topic is Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read. 

  1. Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins 
I picked this book up at my school library a few years ago because it was a YA contemporary romance novel set in Paris (all things I love, especially Paris). I started reading it and I was really enjoying it. I got distracted and I had to return it to my school library. I've heard amazing things about this book (and the other books in the series) on Booktube. I don’t know why I haven’t picked it up again.

  1. Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver
This book is a really popular YA book so I added it to my TBR a few years ago. The release of the movie prompted me to pick it up. I started reading it, got distracted by uni work and then I had to return it to the library. I need to get around to reading it so I can watch the movie.

  1. Room - Emma Donoghue 
I've heard good things about this book and I think it’s interesting how it’s told in the point of view of a five year old child. The movie was released not long ago so I thought it would prompt me to read it, but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.

  1. Big Little Lies - Liane Moriarty 
I've heard really good things about this book, and I like how it’s set in Australia. I bought a copy and got it signed by Liane Moriarty at the Melbourne Writers Festival. I thought the recent release of the TV series would prompt me to read the book, but for some reason I still haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.

  1. Dancing in the Dark - Robyn Bavati
I borrowed this book from my school library, I started reading it and was really enjoying it. I got distracted and I had to take it back to the library. I bought it at a secondhand bookshop, and I find ballet really interesting, so I don’t know why I haven’t picked it up again.

  1. Tiger Lily - Jodi Lynn Anderson
I found the concept of this book really interesting, it's a dark retelling of Peter Pan in Tiger Lily’s point of view. I borrowed it from the library, along with a heap of other books. I got distracted with school work and reading other books and I had to return it. I don’t know why I haven’t borrowed it again.

  1. What Happens Next - Colleen Clayton
I saw this book on Goodreads ages ago and I was attracted to it because of its gorgeous cover. Then I read the plot and knew I had to add it to my TBR list. It's so far down on my list I'd forgotten about it until I made this post.

  1. The Shining Girls - Lauren Beukes
I started reading this book a few years ago, I think it was sometime in 2014. I read a fair chunk of it, but I got distracted and I haven’t gone back to it. It’s still listed as ‘Currently reading’ on Goodreads. I think I'm embarrassed to go back to it because it’s been so long. I listed it on my 2018 POPSUGAR reading challenge TBR, so this will be the year (hopefully)!

  1. The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern 
This is another book I’ve heard a lot of hype about on Booktube. The circus aspect sounds so interesting. I think I’m afraid of reading it and thinking it doesn’t live up to the hype.

  1. Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson 
I watched this movie numerous times as a child and I loved it. I don’t know why I never got around to reading it, especially when my sister owns the book.

  1. The Night Circus has been on my TBR for far too long. I recently watched Big Little Lies and now I`m more motivated to pick up the book. Good luck with your reading!

  3. I relate to borrowing a book and then not finishing it and having to return it!! That was me for a TON of books, particularly Eragon.😂 I also did it to Cinder, but I actually got that one back out and read it which is such a good thing because I love that series haha. and Bridge to Terebithia is amazing. <3 But I actually saw the movie first as a kid, eeep. I love them both though.

  4. Not finishing books is a really bad habit I plan on fixing this year! That's good to hear, I'm planning on (finally) reading Bridge to Terabithia this year.
