Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish. This week it’s top ten books which have remained on your TBR list or bookshelves since before you started blogging.
It is with great embarrassment that I admit this is probably the easiest Top Ten Tuesday I’ve ever created. I’m the kind of reader who buys novels at the spur of the moment. The amount of books that are I’ve left by the wayside or crammed at the back of my bookshelves so I don’t have to guiltily stare at their pristine pages is alarming.
I don’t know if I’ve had these since before I started blogging but it feels like they’ve been collecting dust forever. I have learned to forgive myself for these bouts of careless book buying and subsequent procrastination but I haven’t broken the habit yet.
These were Christmas gifts which will probably remain unread until this upcoming Christmas.
That’s right. I read both other novels and when the final novel came out I just didn’t read it and as time dragged on and the characters faded from my mind I was less inclined to.
These ones were spur of the moment buys and have suffered for it.
I loved Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Boys series, which is what motivated me to purchase this novel in the first place, but there’s something about werewolves that holds absolutely no appeal to me.
