Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
It has now been moved over to That Artsy Reader Girl.
There are quite a few books that have been waiting a very long time for me to read them and I only joined Goodreads 3 years ago so the books SAY that’s when I added them but in reality they’ve been waiting longer than that.
These are in no particular order.
10.) The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
Yep, this one has been waiting a while but this year is the year I’m reading it! It’s officially on my “Beat the Backlist” TBR so it’s happening! I finally got a copy for Christmas too so now I really have no excuses.
9.) Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
Years back I read the amazing book known as “The Graveyard Book” and I decided I HAD to read more Neil Gaiman plain and simple. So “Neverwhere” is a pretty big book of his so I added it to my TBR, hopefully I’ll get to it….eventually.
8.) The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
I always feel really conflicted about this book because on the one side I hear it’s excruciatingly slow paced but on the other side I LOVE heists in fantasy books and criminal/anti-hero main characters. So I do want to give it a go since I own a copy.
7.) The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie
As you can see I’ve added a lot of the “big” high fantasy novels and just proceed to not read them. I’m terrible. I really liked Abercrombie’s YA fantasy book “Half a King” as the plot twists were incredible and I enjoy politically driven fantasy books. So I’d like to read more of his writing!
6.) The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks
Yep, more fantasy. What can I say? I like fantasy and I also like assassins.
5.) Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
I loved ‘True Blood’ so naturally I want to read the books, will I ever actually do it though? That’s the question. I may yet remove this one from my TBR just because it’s been on here forever.
4.) Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence
Now as you can already probably tell I really, REALLY enjoy fantasy but what I enjoy more than that is dark fantasy. And I think it’s safe to say this qualifies, I’m here for the stabby books.
3.) The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
Why have I STILL not read this book? I’ve heard nothing but great things about it, I own it, and it’s super short.
2.) The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A classic and while I don’t normally read many classics I do want to read this one. I’ve been trying. For years. I have yet to finish.
1.) Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton
I think it’s pretty obvious why this is on my list….the movie and dinosaurs.
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
What are some books that have been on your TBR the longest?
