Top 10 Tuesday: Books I own but haven’t read

Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! I am using an old prompt from last year for my list today: Books I Own But Still Need to Read.

For the past couple of years, I have tried to buy books that I have already read and loved. Certainly, I’m not perfect at this. But overall, my list of books I own but haven’t read is not as long as it could be 😉 It is one of my goals in 2019 to read 5 books on my shelves that I haven’t read before. So I am working at shortened this list even more. Enjoy!

What books do you own that you haven’t read yet?

  1. Oh! You have some great titles there! I think you’ll love Emily, of course, since you like Anne. But The Tenant of Wildfell Hall was really powerful for me when I read it. And A Tale of Two Cities is my favorite Dickens novel. You’re kind of making me want to just read all the books you mentioned. I probably should read some of the books I own and haven’t read, though. I really want to at least finally finish Shelby Foote’s Civil War trilogy. One day…

    1. I’m so glad to hear that you love several of these! I am excited for those classics. I have tried A Tale of Two Cities a few times but not for several years. So I am hoping to finally get into that one and finish it this year!!

      Haha I totally understand that–I’m always tempted to reread my favorites and I do sometimes 🙂 Good luck on that Civil War trilogy!

      1. I’ve always thought the real power of A Tale of Two Cities comes from reaching the end and seeing how it comes together. The problem with that is that I have known several people who were uninspired to ever reach the end. XD

        That being said, I think I’ve started the first book in the Civil War trilogy three times and never finished.

  2. I have a list of nearly 200 that I own and haven’t read yet – I keep telling myself I’ll make a dent, but then I find all the new releases. I’m going to have to seriously regiment one TBR, one new. At least I’ve gotten better about going to the library again.

    1. That is rather impressive that you’ve made a list! Haha. I guess I don’t want to know exactly how many of my books I haven’t read. I am a big library fan myself. Lately, I read all the books that interest me from there first then buy my favorites. Good luck with your reading regiment!

  3. I’m a total book hoarder, so I have a ton of books I haven’t read. Topping my list, though, is probably the rest of the Unwind series. I read the first book and loved it, but haven’t moved on from it yet.
