Top 10 Tuesday! Books that have sat far too long on my TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week we are discussing the 10 books that have been sitting on my TBR list for a nearly gross period of time. I am going to do 5 books because I can. I have a terrible habit of buying 10 books every time I finish one book, so I end up with six zillion books.

According to my Goodreads page the book that has been on my TBR list the longest is:


I believe of all of these, I have owned Beauty Queens for the longest, and I wanted to read The Virgin Suicides the longest. I remember watching that movie when one of my friends (Not Jen) was going through a very big film thing. I don’t remember much about it, but I remember wanting to read the book.

After I read Fangirl, I added all of Rainbow Rowell’s books to my TBR, and I’ve been picking away ever since.

I added Holly Black’s books at the recommendation of Maureen Johnson, I have heard some amazing things about her books, but I still haven’t read any of them.

Ally Carter wrote the Heist Society books, and they are at the top of my favs of all time list. This is the start of a different series, and I really want to get to it.

Recently, I cleaned out my TBR to take out all the books that I didn’t physically own to make it not 400 books. It’s still a lot of books which is kind of overwhelming, but I literally own all the books that have been released that are on my Goodreads TBR list. It’s kind of ridiculous.

What’s sitting on your self?

Until next time Internet,

  1. Do you really have 400 books sitting on your bookshelf that are to read? 🙂 Ok, I will not panic for collecting more books than I can read haha.. though many of my books are ebooks.. I have Lord of the Rings on my shelf for the longest time.. I love the movie and do want to read the book. I will just make myself pick it up one of these days soon. You too! Maybe today! 🙂

    1. Honestly its probably closer to 200, Ebooks, audiobooks and physical books. Ebooks add up quickly. I have 80 physical unread books. I have a special bookshelf for them.

      I read somewhere that Thomas Jefferson had like more books than everyone else in America combine, so I feel a little bit better about myself when reading about famous book hoarders.

  2. I’ve been meaning to read The Virgin Suicides for too long! Also, I love the Heist Society books but I feel like I’m just too old for her newest series. I find younger YAs harder to get into and less enjoyable because of that nowadays.

  3. I had hauled Coldest Girl when it was released in what 2012? 2013? thinking that I’d get a chance to see what the kerfuffle was about with Black’s storytelling. Didn’t get to it. My first of Black’s ended up being Cruel Prince from this year, which I found just okay, so I can definitely see myself having Coldest Girl chill on my shelf for a while before I get to it!
