Top Ten Tuesday: 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.

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

Let me just say that this is an embarrassing list. If I had ever realized how long it would take me to whittle away my TBR pile, I'm not sure I would have requested so many books. Who am I kidding? I can't resist a book with a good cover that sounds fabulous. 

I am pretty sure I won this book. I've had it at least since 2010. Yikes!

Met this author at a writers conference and grabbed this book. It's still sitting in my office unread. 

Bought this at a school book fair when my kids were in elementary. One of the girls is a junior this year. I haven't had this book too long, have I? 

I've had this since a month prior to this book's August 2011 release. The publisher sent it to me. Feeling guilty right now. 

I have had this and the workbook forever. Have I ever cracked them open? (Shakes head)

Think I at least started this one, but don't recall finishing it.

Was impressed by this author's keynote speech at a writers conference so I bought one of her books.

Not my typical read, but it was a Kindle freebie and I love Kathi's work. Downloaded it in 2010. 

The publisher began sending me this series after I reviewed a couple of the books. This is four books ago. I need to get it read. 

I wanted this book so bad. I waited until it was free on Kindle and snapped it up. Four years later it sits on my device waiting for me, crying, "Why don't you read me?"

What books have been on your TBR list the longest? Have you figured out a plan to get them read?

I'm intrigued by Property and Becoming Marie Antoinette.

Rhett Butler's People? Ooh, what is that? Something told by his perspective? That definite;y sounds interesting. Love that you can measure how long you've had a book based on the kids' ages. Haha

I haven't read any of these books, but they do look like they'll be interesting. I hope you enjoy these if you do get around to them!

The only book I read is writing the Breakout Novel which I thought was very good.

The Medea Complex looks good! And I hear you - I see all these books everyone is talking about and then I see them come up for $1.99 on Amazon and... never read them. *sigh*

Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

Ooh, Becoming Marie Antoinette looks interesting. I hope you get a chance to read some of these books soon.

I haven't heard of any of these, but Becoming Marie Antoinette looks really interesting!

I have the Breakout Novel workbook...I have occasionally used it.

Oh yes, can't resist a beautiful cover. I think Becoming Marie Antoinette would be a interesting read. Happy Reading.

Ceri, Rhett Butler's People is exactly the authorized sequel to Gone With the Wind. It tells the story of the people that shaped Butler's life from his perspective. It sounded so fascinating to me when I picked it up. Can't believe I haven't read it yet.

Laura, I really wanted to read the Breakout Novel, but I am so bad about reading those types of books. Maybe they seem too dry to me. But Maass is a genius so I should make the time.

Crazy Lady, it is unfortunate that authors' work is given away these days. That's why I feel so guilty over it.

Thanks for stopping by, everyone. It's always nice to have visitors. Off to check out the posts I missed.

At least you know you are in good company in terms of what you haven't yet gotten to. That's the way I'm trying to look at it anyway. :-) I hope you get a chance to read all of these at some point. Have a great week!
