Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Unread Books on My Shelves I Want to Read Soon

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.  

Welcome to Tuesday! We are back home after our trip to North Carolina. It was so good to see the Lil' Princess. Hard to believe the semester is almost over. She will be coming home in early May.

I was looking through my photos, and I came across this book that I have to tell you about before I get into this week's Top Ten Tuesday

I grabbed this new book by Dawn McMillan while shopping in Target. This is the latest book in the author's I Need A New Butt series. OMG! I had to buy this because I couldn't stop laughing. I'm sitting there in the middle of Target reading this to our daughter and tears are streaming down my face because I am laughing so hard. By the time I was done, my sides ached. Just talking about it makes me break down in fits of laughter. She actually took photos. 

Okay, now on to more serious matters. Unread books. We bloggers have plenty of those. So many books and so little time. What can we say? Back in March, we talked about books on our Spring 2024 TBR List. You can find mine here. Now, let's talk about books that are unread on our shelves that we want to read soon. Here are my...

Top Ten Unread Books on My Shelves
I Want to Read Soon 

I grabbed this from one of my clients, whose house I sold in 2023. She had a ton of books that she sold before moving. I enjoy the author's work and have other books of his in my TBR pile. 

I bought this in 2014. That year was the 100th anniversary of the publication of Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. As a LMM fan, I had to have this in my collection. 

This book was purchased in 2012, the summer after it came out. Melissa Francis was still reporting for Fox News at the time. I enjoyed her other book, Lessons from the Prairie, so I would love to read this one as well. Besides, it's the 50th anniversary of Little House on the Prairie, and I am trying to stay on top of books released by the cast. 

Thanks to an Amazon gift card, this book made its way to my house in 2012. We watched The Waltons growing up, and this cast often travels in the same circles as the LHOP cast. I would love to read this before the end of the year. 

In 2023, I was gifted a Barnes & Noble gift card as a thank you gift. This is one of the books I grabbed. I've heard a lot of great things about it. Hopefully, I can get to it soon. 

Thanks to another B&N gift card, I bought this in 2022. The title alone captures you, but it was McCurdy's interviews that made me want to read it. There has been recent talk of this book with the release of the "Quiet on Set" docuseries. 

I pre-ordered this book in 2018, almost a year before it was published. Having read Wendi's other book, I would love to read this one before attending the cast reunion in August. 

I'm not sure when I bought this book, but it was after Go Set a Watchman came out because I wanted to read To Kill a Mockingbird first. 

This book was pre-ordered a couple of months before it came out in 2017. I've heard mixed reviews of this biography, but mostly good ones. I would love to dive into this one. 

This book was also a pre-order before it came out in the fall of 2018. I started it, but review books got in the way. I've heard so many great things about this book, I would love to read it soon.

How many of these books have you read? Is there one you think I should start with first?

Dad's Runaway Butt sounds hilarious! Also, The Very Secret Society of Irregular Witches was so dang cute, I hope you love it!

Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

Aymee, I have never laughed so hard reading a book. It was worth the money just to laugh again.

Thanks for visiting today.

You definitely should read To Kill a Mockingbird. Forget reading Watchman. I wish I'd never read it.

And I love to laugh. I should look for that book!

Thanks for the advice, Deb. I heard the sequel wasn't the best. The butt book is hilarious!
