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

Hi everyone!

I’m FINALLY back with a new Top Ten Tuesday! I saw this was the prompt for this week and knew I had to do it – let’s shame my TBR! TTT has actually moved from The Broke and the Bookish now and is actually over at That Artsy Reader Girl so go and check out everyone’s posts over there!


This weeks TTT post is about books that have been on my TBR forever – and let me tell you it is HARD to choose just 10! Here we go:divider-2461548_1280

The Versions of Us by Laura Barnett

This has been on my TBR since it came out in 2014 – I can’t believe it because I was SO excited when this was released and it was recommended to me in Waterstones! I guess that’s the definition of being a book lover – never reading your most anticipated books straight away!

Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

I read Red Queen SO long ago, and genuinely intended to read this straight after release in 2016…but here we are in 2018 and I STILL haven’t read it. And now I need to re-read Red Queen. I’m a mess!

My Sisters Keeper by Jodi Picoult

I bought this in 2016 and really wanted to read it after seeing the film and DROWNING in tears – but once again I got distracted and didn’t….WHY.


I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak

You all probably know that The Book Thief is my FAVOURITE book, so why I haven’t read this already? Your guess is as good as mine! I have it, and I need to read it asap – maybe that’s my goal for 2018!

Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

This was only released a couple years ago, but I really love the Lunar Chronicles series and this book is so short I can’t believe I haven’t read it yet!

More Than This by Patrick Ness

2014 release & a Patrick Ness book that I haven’t read yet? WHY MEGGAN??? I love Patrick Ness and I’ve read all of his other books, so I have no excuse why I haven’t read this yet – please someone stop me!

Holding Up the Universe by Jennifer Niven

Only out in 2016 this isn’t TOO bad, and I have read her other book so I guess I’m not as bad as I could have been…but still I need to read this book because I really love Jennifer’s books!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

A 2014 release that I still haven’t gotten to despite reading most of Rainbow’s other novels- why am I like this???? I’ve heard really good things about this as well so I really don’t know why it’s been on my TBR for 4 YEARS.

Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay

WOW….2005 release….I mean I only bought it in 2014 which is SLIGHTLY better I suppose? I do own the entire series and they are happily looking pretty on my shelf whilst I ignore them for other books….I’m such a bad book parent!

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

Okay YES I know this book has been out since 2012 but in my defence I haven’t owned it since then!!! Maybe since 2015??

I know I need to read it, and now the film is coming out I do feel motivated to read it so hopefully I’ll get to it soon!


There we go – that is my TTT and my TBR shame! Trust me there are SO many more books where they came from, and I’ve given loads of old books I never read away recently too…I HAVE A PROBLEM!

Leave a comment below with your TTT – I’d love to read your posts!

Until next time,

Keep Reading!

  1. I’ve read Eleanor and Park and oddly enough I didn’t get the hype. It was just okay. But maybe it also has to do with the time I read it. I’ll have to reread it for sure.


      1. I mean, try the first chapter maybe then you’ll have an idea. If I remember correctly the writing style stays the same throughout so the first chapter should be a good measurement.


  2. I read one of the Dexter books once – whatever is first in the series, I don’t recall liking it that much. Of course, I never watched the series either. Eleanor & Park was a good read but as time passes, I’m finding I’m not loving it as much.
