Top Ten Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I’m Thankful For (Happy Thanksgiving week in the USA!). I tweaked this topic a bit since I couldn’t begin to name just ten books that I’m most thankful for. Instead, I decided to go with the top ten books I’m thankful to have finally gotten off of my TBR. I’ve always accumulated books faster than I can read them, but this seems to have gotten out of control since I started blogging. Older books have been pushed aside in favor of newer releases, and I’ve also gotten so caught up in immediately buying books that were super-hyped but then setting them aside for months (*cough* more like years) in favor of other new releases. This year I decided to actively start getting my backlist under control by participating in several challenges designed to do just that. It’s nowhere near under control yet, but I am happy that I was able to knock off this list of books, each of which had been on my TBR for at least a year, and quite often, several years.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating this week!
