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 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is Books I Was SO EXCITED to Get, but Still Haven’t Read. In my head, I call this “The List of Shame.” Those books I just had to have, couldn’t wait to get my hands on them, and then proceed to let them sit on my shelf for months or even years before I finally get around to reading them. I did finally put a dent in the last list I made like this, but there are always more to share. The biggest trend I see is that I’ve neglected my fantasy reading for a while now. During the pandemic I have craved pretty much exclusively romance so all of those fantasy novels I was dying to read got pushed aside. I did finally read the entire Poppy Wars trilogy this year though so I’m hoping to start working my way through all of these series as well. I think the book that has the “honor” of sitting on my shelf unread the longest is Uprooted. I didn’t love Spinning Silver as much as I hoped to so I’ve kind of lost interest in Uprooted as a result. Honestly the only reason I haven’t just gotten rid of it is that the cover is so stunning, lol.
