Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books On My Shelf That I STILL Haven’t Read Yet

http---www.pixteller.com-pdata-t-l-435619

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet. 

Ugh. This topic depresses me. I’ve only been blogging for a little over a year, but the list goes back further than that. Some of these are books I bought. Others are books I was given. All are books I own. Sigh.


1.The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

2. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

3. Heartsick by Chelsea Cain

4. Wild by Cheryl Strayed

5. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Alexie Sherman

6. The Giver by Lois Lowry

7. Ten Beach Road by Wendy Wax

8. The One I Left Behind by Jennifer McMahon

9. The Source by J.D. Horn

10. How I Came to Sparkle Again by Kaya McLaren


Have your read any of these books? Are any of them stuck on your TBR list, too?

  1. The Giver is a very easy read, so you can finish it in a day or two. It’s not the most *amazing* book ever, but I did enjoy it and it’s great for discussions 🙂
    I’ve always seen the cover for The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer around, it looks rather intriguing!

    • A friend recommended The Giver to me, so I bought it for $0.99. I should have gone with my gut and passed it up. I don’t really have a desire to read it. I should just try it, though.

  2. Omg!! I have many of the same ones yet to read. But 13 Reasons Why just broke my heart! I also own a ton of Wendy Wax books and have never read her before. I love her covers!! Hahaha

    • Thank you! I keep putting it off because I’ve heard a few people say that. I need to just pick it up already. 😉
      Thanks for stopping by! Off to view your post.

  3. I seem to be the only person ever to throw WILD across the room as hard as possible and want to burn it! Part-Time Indian has been on my list for a long time–I try to read popular banned and challenged books. My kids both loved the Giver so it must be good as they never agree on anything!

  4. Ahh! You should definitely read The Giver, 13 Reasons Why ASAP. Those are two of my faves for sure! I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer about a year and a half ago…actually I think it was the first book I ever reviewed on my blog haha! But I haven’t continued on with the series since. I know a lot of people love it, but I just don’t have any drive to continue at the moment 🙁

    • I know, I know. I just keep getting distracted by other books! I need to read them this year. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I’ve read The Source. That was a fun series about a family of witches. I have Julo (a prequel of sorts) sitting on my TBR now. That darn TBR is never ending! Hope you get a chance to read some of these. It’s so hard with so many new books coming out all the time. 🙂

  6. I quite enjoyed Wild. Bits of it were a bit rough, but it was overall quite hopeful and uplifting. Not sure where you fall on the “must finish all the books” scale, but you might consider donating a few of these if they don’t appeal, then bam! progress! 🙂

    • I told myself I’d read it this year. I guess I better get on that since the year is already half over! Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Ahhh I’d recommend The Giver! And Wild is on my TBR too because Cheryl Strayed is such a great writer. <3

    I've read Thirteen Reasons Why and I don't know if I like it. I really dislike the main character (the girl), but it was the first book I read with its themes so it left quite an impression on me.

  8. I read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer last year and really enjoyed that. I hope you’ll like it when you get around to it. I have so many books still on my tbr from before blogging. I blame Tumblr/booklr

  9. I listened to the audiobook of Wild earlier this summer and really enjoyed it. I love to hike so I loved that aspect of it, but it’s also just an interesting and entertaining memoir in general. Cheryl Strayed’s writing really makes you feel as though you’re having a conversation with her right then and there. Hope you enjoy it if you get around to reading it! 🙂

  10. I agree! This topic is depressing! Haha. It shows that I often leave books on my TBR for too long and get to other books sooner. I guess that’s why I went a different direction this week 😉

    I highly recommend The Giver. It is a beautiful novel. And not too long so totally doable in a short amount of time 🙂 Also the movie is pretty good too.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier 🙂

    • Everyone’s said The Giver is good, so I guess I should buck up and read it. 😉 Thanks for stopping by! (Sorry it took so long to reply. Your comment ended up in my spam folder somehow. 🙁 )
