Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read

Posted February 6, 2018 by @Angelized_1st in Memes, Top Ten Tuesday / 9 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

How it works:

I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.

The books on this list are books I have in my possession, either in physical or ebook. That means they may not be the ten oldest books on my TBR, but they are the oldest of books I own. Out of the 521 books on my Goodreads TBR, these are the books I actually went through the effort of procuring with the intent to read. Some of the books I acquired years after they made it to my TBR, and some I’ve bought at book sales and such. No matter how they came to me, all of these books have been added to my Goodreads TBR between 2011-2012. Yes, folks, these are some of the first books I added to my TBR list when I first signed up for a Goodreads account. Seven long years later, and I’m still not any closer to reading them. Sad!

  1. We all have different tastes, of course, but I really liked High Fidelity, and The Stand is one of the only King novels I’ve read, and I loved it too. Infinite Playlist was meh, and I prefer 1984 over Brave New World. I’ve only seen the movie adaptation of Mystic River, and it was heart-breaking, and I’ve never actually read Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.

    What a fun and varied list!

      Thanks, Wendy! I think the fact that the film version of Mystic River was so heartbreaking is why I haven’t read the book. I very rarely like to cry over a book if I can help it. I’ve also seen the film version of High Fidelity and loved it. Don’t know why I haven’t read the book.

      I really loved the film version of High Fidelity. Don’t know why I’ve never read the book. It’s been on my Kindle for years! I really need to check out Brave New World, as it’s one of my Goodreads Top 100 books.
