Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
I have never posted a Top Ten Tuesday before but I think I am going to start. I love reading everyone else’s post each Tuesday and thought it would be fun to start participating in them this year.
This weeks post is about books that have been on your shelf the longest. I buy so many books that inevitably some stay on my shelves unread for several years.
Oliver Twist and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
I find Charles Dickenson to be intimidating. Some classics can be hard to understand, at least for me. I do want to read Great Expectations this year.
The Agincourt Bride by Joanna Hickson
I plan on reading this next month because it is the historical fictionista book club pick for March. But this has been on my shelf for a few years.
The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Fowllett
I hear nothing but good things about this book and have also heard people fly through 971 pages. Maybe 2018 will finally be the year I read it.
The Borgia Betrayal by Sara Poole
I thought I read this but when I went to go read the third book in the series I found I was confused because I didn’t read this one.
The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
I was a fan of True Blood and the tv series is based off these books and when I found these at a second-hand shop I just had to get them. I still need to buy the first book then I can continue on with the series.
Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice
I’ve had these books for so long, not to sure why I haven’t picked them up.
Uglies Series by Scott Westerfield
These books because they were hyped at one time but slowly lost interest in them.
Short Story Collection by Alice Munro
I don’t reach for short story and that is why these have remain unread on my shelves. Need to change that.
Crow Lake by Mary Lawson
My mother gave this book to me several years ago and it sounds interesting but yet I haven’t even thought about reading it.
Now that I have shined some light on these books, I will hopefully read these soon and not have them on my shelf unread for several more years. What books have been on your TBR the longest?
