TTT: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now run by That Artsy Reader Girl.

The amount of unread books I own is highly embarrassing (close to 400). I sorted my Goodreads owned-tbr shelf by date and these are ten of the oldest from that shelf. I purge my shelves fairly regularly, so even though I’ve owned all of these for at least four years, I do actually plan to read all of them…eventually.

The Bride Wore Size 12 by Meg Cabot
The Heather Wells series is one of my all-time favorites, and I just can’t bring myself to read the final book because that means it’s over. Maybe I’ll do a complete series re-read (perhaps via audio this time?) and then finally dive into this one. 

Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
I picked this up immediately after I read The Glass House years ago, and then I realized it was historical fiction and completely lost interest. I really loved The Glass House, so I keep thinking I’ll want to give this a shot eventually. 

I’m a Stranger Here Myself by Bill Bryson
I’ve read several of Bill Bryson’s books, and I’ve even started this one once or twice. Since picking this one up, I’ve realized I prefer reading his books in audiobook form, and just haven’t gotten around to listening to it yet. 

The Guinea Pig Diaries by A.J. Jacobs
I need to listen to this via audiobook too. I think I have a copy, but I just haven’t gotten to it yet. The topic interests me but I haven’t been in the mood. 

You Don’t Look Like Anyone I Know by Heather Sellers
I sense a theme…I just prefer digesting non-fiction in audiobook format!

The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
This one is on my TBR for February! My book club is reading it this month so I can’t put it off any longer. 

Landline by Rainbow Rowell
…I have no excuse except that this doesn’t sound that interesting and I only bought it because RR wrote it. I have been reading more adult than YA this year so maybe I’ll finally be in the mood for it in 2018. I’m pretty sure I have it in audiobook form so maybe I’ll end up reading it that way. 

Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
In my defense, I have read this one before, but it was over 15 years ago when it first came out, and I remember being really confused at all the British language differences. I’ve only read the first couple books, but I slowly accumulated the entire series in these covers (which was really difficult as the old covers have the same ISBN numbers so used book sites constantly sent me the wrong editions!!) and really want to binge the entire series now that I finally own then all

Columbine by Dave Cullen
This one is on my personal “must read in 2018” list. I’ve only been putting it off because I know it’s going to be really difficult to get through. 

The Death of Bees by Lisa O’Donnell
This is one of the very first books I bought when I started getting back into reading after college. I think it was from my first Book Outlet order back in 2014. The premise is interesting but I haven’t heard anyone talk about it so it’s never one I think to reach for.

Let me know what books have been on your TBR the longest. Anything on my list that I absolutely must read ASAP? Link me to your TTT if you participated. I’m really curious to see what is on everyone else’s lists.
