Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is: Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read
I feel like I have done this one before, too. So looks like I am going to cheat again, YAY! So as some of you may know, I am doing a Culling of the Books at the moment. And some of these I cleared from my shelves, but I got rid of even more from my Goodreads TBR. And some of these books were on there for ages, and I don’t know why I ever told myself that I was going to read them- or why I kept the charade up for half a decade in some cases.
Books I Finally Kicked off my TBR
I only went with books that had been on for a loooong time before they got the boot. Sadly, I own most of them too.
Hunger is kicked off because…. I liked the Gone story but I was also kind of bored at times and dreaded reading Hunger. So I bought the whole series, as you do. Only I don’t wanna because 600 pages is a lot?
Anna and the French Kiss is kicked off because…. I don’t even like fluffy books. What was I thinking? And then I heard that Anna was acting crappy, on top of it, so bye.
The Selction is kicked off because…. The spinoff series with the bratty daughter legit spoiled the entire series for me. And so now… meh.
An Abundance of Katherines is kicked off because…. I simply refuse to believe that anyone knows that many girls named Katherine. It isn’t even that popular of a name, right?
This Song will Save Your Life is kicked off because…. I don’t even like books about music, but I caved to the peer pressure. Well, looks like I have uncaved.
The Queen of the Tearling is kicked off because…. tbh, it’s suuuuper long and some people said it was boring and that’s a good enough reason for me.
Shiver is kicked off because…. I remembered that I kind of hate werewolves.
Lailah is kicked off because…. I remembered that I don’t like the stuff in this one either.
The Murder Complex is kicked off because…. I just read too many negative reviews, and frankly, life is too short and I have other shit to read.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is kicked off because…. I have heard there are a shitton of books that do the same general concept… only better. And this is a long series.
