Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Have Been On My TBR For 800 Years


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme over at The Broke and The Bookish.

This week’s theme is books that have been on my TBR since before I started blogging. There are so many books that I’ve been wanting to read for ages – but still haven’t gotten to – so this post was difficult in trying to narrow the list down to only 10. After a lot of thought I managed to do it. If there are any books you think I should be reading right this second, let me know below! I obviously want to read all of these, but maybe a comment will convince me on what to read next.

1. 1984 by George Orwell

2. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

3. Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

4. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

5. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

6. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

7. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

8. Legend by Marie Lu

9. All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

10. Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

    You’ve got lots of good books here! I really enjoyed “A Darker Shade of Magic” and its sequel, as well as “1984” and “Something Borrowed.” The Tahereh Mafi series was decent too. “All the Light You Cannot See” has been on my to-read list since before it came out. I know I’m going to love it — everyone I know who’s read it has — but somehow I just never seem to get to it! I’m planning to read it this year… but there are only four months left! I’ve also been meaning to start the Game of Thrones books for ever and ever. One day…

      I’ve been told many times by my boyfriend to finally read 1984 because it’s his favourite book. One day I’ll get to it. Same thing with Game of Thrones. It’s just so huge and daunting. There’s so many other books to read, and I know it’ll take me forever to get through those.
