Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. The meme was originally the brainchild of The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read.
It was a little tricky to figure out how to do this one. Do I go by Goodreads, which I only started using in 2012, or try to figure out which books have been on my list since well before that? I decided to go with my Goodreads want-to-read shelf, more or less. Most of them are fantasy. You’ll notice that a lot of them are MG or YA books; in part that’s because in 2012, I was still raising a high-schooler, and there were a lot of books I’d heard about for MG and YA that I hadn’t gotten around to reading yet. Oh, and as usual, there are more than 10, because why not?
In no particular order (they all have approximately the same date, the month I joined Goodreads):
- In the King’s Service (Katherine Kurtz)
- The Thief (Megan Whalen Turner)
- Wildwood Dancing (Juliet Marillier)
- The Moorchild (Eloise Jarvis McGraw)
- The High King’s Tomb (Kristen Britain)
- The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making (Catherynne M. Valente)
- Son of the Shadows (Juliet Marillier)
- The Goose Girl (Shannon Hale)
- Graceling (Kristin Cashore)
- The Iron King (Julie Kagawa)
- The Art of Detection (Laurie R. King)
I actually own all of these in one form or another (most of them in hard- or softcover; one or two as ebooks.) So I have no excuse for not having read them yet!
