Top Ten Tuesday: Books I can’t believe I haven’t read

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t/Want To Read From X Genre (for example I feel like I’m pretty well read in contemporary YA but there are some STAPLES I can’t believe I haven’t read. Or if you just want to books you WANT to read in a particular genre…not necessarily long overdue)

Instead of narrowing it down to a particular genre, I’m just going to go with ten books on my physical TBR that I can’t believe I still haven’t read. [all covers linked to Goodreads]

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor    Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell    Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Shift by Hugh Howey    Legend by Marie Lu    Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi    The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon    The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

I know I’ve talked about not having read these several times, so maybe this will embarrass me enough that I’ll have to get to them soon. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight is going to be my next read because I have an extra copy that I’ll be giving away around Valentine’s Day. Look out for that! Link me up to your TTT if you participated or tell me some books you can’t believe you haven’t read.

The TBR Tag

I was tagged by the wonderful Rachel at Confessions of a Book Geek AND Brandie at Brandie is a Book Junkie to do the TBR Tag! Thanks, lovelies!

1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

Goodreads mostly. I have a “to read” shelf and a “physical books I own TBR” to keep track of books I own and want to read and those I don’t own but would either like to own or just read.

2. Is your TBR mostly print or eBook?

Print. I mostly only use my Kindle for e-ARCs. I have a couple of books on my Kindle I’ve bought because they were really great deals, but I prefer physical books 9.5 times out of 10.

3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?

I’m a bit of a mood reader, so I mostly just pick up the book I feel like reading. However, I also have a lot of e-ARCs that I try to read at least a couple weeks before their release date, so I have to factor that into my reading schedule.

4. A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest.

The Bone Season

I bought this book in 2013 while I was working at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. It’s signed and everything. I just haven’t read it. Why haven’t I read it??

5. A book you recently added to your TBR.

The 100 by Kass Morgan    Confess by Colleen Hoover

Bought: The 100 by Kass Morgan / On GR: Confess by Colleen Hoover

6. A book on your TBR strictly because of its beautiful cover.

I don’t tend to buy books just because of their cover. I like to at least read the blurb if not a few reviews. But my favorite cover that I physically own but haven’t read is a tie between

The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black    Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda    Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

7. A book on your TBR that you never plan on reading.

Probably none. I don’t buy books I don’t plan on reading. If I don’t like a book, I will either DNF it or give it to someone else.

8. An unpublished book on your TBR that you’re excited for.

Pretty much everything on my 2015 releases shelf, but a few I’m really excited about (I obviously don’t know how to pick only one):

We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach I'll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios Little Pretty Things by Lori Rader-Day Pip Bartlett's Guide to Magical Creatures The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan A Court of Thorns and Roses

9. A book on your TBR that basically everyone has read but you.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor   The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey   Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo   The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

10. A book on your TBR that everyone recommends to you.

See above.

11. A book on your TBR that you’re dying to read.

ALL OF THEM?! Here are three I wish I was reading RIGHT NOW SIMULTANEOUSLY.

Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater    The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black    Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

12. How many books are on your Goodreads TBR shelf?

General “to read” shelf – 363. “Physical books I own TBR” shelf – 73, and this needs to be updated. CUE ANXIETY.

As always, I’m leaving it up to you to participate or not. This was a lot of fun (and anxiety inducing!), so if you guys feel like participating, DO IT! Link me up! 🙂

Top Ten Tuesday: books on my summer TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:

Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR list

I have way too many books on my summer TBR, so I thought the easiest thing to do would be to just list the next ten books I plan on reading. Hope that’s alright. 🙂 This list is funny to me because recently TTT was which books I think YOU should read this summer, and I had a lot of YA and contemporary on it. My TTT this week doesn’t have much of that.

1. Necroscope by Brian Lumley. I made a deal with my dad to read one book in this thirteen book series every month until I finish it.

2. Rich Kids of Instagram

3. Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern

Say What You Will

4. The Black Hour by Lori Rader-Day

5. The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Hoping to read in time for the premiere of the TV series on July 13.

6. Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys. Based on this review by Booknerderie.

Out of the Easy

7. The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater. I LOVED The Raven Boys.

8. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

9. The Sting of Summer by Katherine Over. Wooo for winning free books on Goodreads.

The Sting of Summer

10. Okay, this isn’t next up on the list, but I can’t wait for this one:

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins.
