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

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.

There was once a time when I would worry about not having a new book to read once I had finished the one I was currently reading. And then I took up blogging. And discovered a lot of places I can find used or cheap books.
I believe my current TBR count is a little over 100.

Books that have been there the longest:


1) The Once and Future King by T.H White
I bought it in a used book store... that's no longer there.

2) The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart
I went through an Arthurian phase. Hopefully it'll come back because I have a few on the subject.

3) Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
I got this at a book fair... that no longer happens.

4) Dracula in Love by Karen Essex
Prize won during my first FrightFall Readathon. The year I started this blog.

5) The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
I think it was after I got this one that I announced that I wasn't going to buy anymore.


6) Hanging on to Max by Margaret Bechard
Bookstore liquidation sale + me having a bad day.

7) Destined by Alison Kraft
Giveaway win, signed by author along with an Amazon gift card. I think I bought Hunger Games inspired nail polish. One of them has since dried out.

8) Mythology by Edith Hamilton
I like mythology as much as I did King Arthur.

9) Dracula, My Love by Syrie James
I hadn't even read Dracula yet but sure let's make it two.

10 The Heretic Queen by Micelle Moran
Totally top of my list.... ever since I bought it for my 23rd birthday. (I just turned 28 last week.)


  1. I think the Other Boleyn Girl was on my list years ago and has since then dropped off it as others have crowded it out. My TTT TBR list

  2. I hope you get a chance to read these soon!
