Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
The Original Question for this week was:
Books From My Past Seasonal TBR Posts I STILL Haven’t Read (Submitted by Dedra @ A Book Wanderer)
This doesn’t really apply to me so I’ve changed it just a bit, and the new question is:
Confession: My Goodreads TBR or “Want to Read” list has 197 books on it! I decided pick the ten of those that I wanted to read the most, and then admit that there are some I’m never going to read and delete those. Here are my Top 10, which I have decided to read by the end of the year:
This has been in my Audible library for about 7 years! It’s time to listen to it. (That is another topic: Oldest 10 Audible books you haven’t listened to!)
Time and Again by Jack Finney is hailed as one of the classic time travel books of all time. I’m surprised I haven’t read it yet. I’m going to remedy that.
A frightening look at the future. Maybe I didn’t want to take a peek. This has been on my TBR for a year.
I did a spotlight on this earlier this year and planned to read it, but haven’t yet. Now it will be done by the end of the year.
This dystopian sounds great, it’s on Kindle Unlimited, has close to 3,000 reviews, and yet it’s been on my TBR for three years. Go figure.
This novel about family secrets is on Kindle Unlimited with added free listening and has 15,000 plus reviews. It’s also been on my TBR for three years so time to get it read.
This is not just a cookbook with fabulous recipes, but the story of a life and how it was saved by cooking. How I let this sit on my TBR for close to three years is beyond me.
We try to watch the Band of Brothers Miniseries every year near Memorial Day, and this is a biography of the real-life main character, Dick Winters. I’m sure I just forgot about this one.
After going through this list, my conclusion is I put too many books on my TBR, and I need to get it down to the top 20 or 25 that I want to read. Also, some of the books on my Goodreads TBR have been on the list for years, and in some cases my reading tastes have changed, so I’m going to delete them.
How about you? What books are languishing on your TBR?
