Welcome back to Top 10 Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s prompt is Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading and Why. This topic is kind of fun to think about. And also a bit interesting to see what’s been sitting on my TBR without many attempts at actually reading. Hope you enjoy!
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens // I’ve started it before at least twice but I haven’t really gotten into it before. I aspire to love Dickens so one day I will finish this one! (And it’s on my Classics Club list for extra motivation 😉
Evelina by Fanny Burney // This was required reading in college. But I managed to only skim it for class discussion. But it’s one I am intrigued to read especially because I’ve heard it may have inspired Jane Austen’s writing. One day!
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas // Sometimes I think I’m the last book blogger that hasn’t read anything by Sarah J Maas. I basically hear only good things. And yet I am hesitant to read her books. Perhaps it’s because I think I’m a bit outside her target audience? Or I’m putting her books in YA fantasy which is hit or miss for me? Unclear. Perhaps one day I will get it a shot!
The Life of Pi by Yann Martel // I have heard about this books for years. Even saw the movie (I think on an airplane once?). I guess it’s still on the TBR because I have heard that the book gets a bit dense, and I need to be in the right mood for that.
Dear Pen Pal by Heather Vogel Frederick // I read books 1 &2 in the Mother Daughter Book Club series. And then I guess I kind of forgot about it? Not exactly sure why I left the rest of the series unfinished for now. But I think I will finish it one day.
Jane Austen Ruined My Life by Beth Pattillo // I feel like I will either love this book or hate it. So I avoid it instead.
Attachments by Rainbow Rowell // I went through a Rowell faze a few years ago but I didn’t pick this one up. Not sure why. And yet I’m not super drawn to return to it.
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys // I really want to read this book! No clear reason it’s been sitting on the TBR gathering dust instead of being read. I even own it! Hoping to buddy read it with my sister soon!
A Grimm Warning by Chris Colfer // I read books 1 & 2 in the Land of Stories series. But I felt a bit let down after book 2. So I haven’t really wanted to go back to the series and frankly, this is pretty low on my TBR.
The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof // I think the main reason this book is still on my TBR is because I keep looking for it at my local library and not finding it. Perhaps I just need to buy it and read it? 😉
What’s been on your TBR that you’re kind of avoiding?
