Top Ten Tuesday: Books STILL on my TBR

top ten

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is books that have been on my TBR the longest, but I still haven’t read. Even though I try to create a TBR every month, I find that I rarely read all of the books that I listed. With new releases that pop up or a change in my reading mood, I sometimes keep pushing off books that I’ve been meaning to read. Here are the top ten:

  • Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

Salt to the Sea

I’ve been wanting to read this book since I first heard the synopsis. I love every book that I’ve read by Ruta Sepetys and I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews of this book. However, it’s still sat on my Kindle and my TBR. I think since I typically gravitate toward fluffy books and I know this book will break my heart that I haven’t picked it up yet.

  • Percy Jackson and the Olympians #2: Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #2)

The first book in this series made it onto my top middle grade list of 2016. I really wanted to read this book last year, but I didn’t get around to it. I do want to get through Rick Riordan’s books, so hopefully this one will come off my TBR soon.

  • Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

Second Chance Summer

I love Morgan Matson’s books and have kept this one my TBR the past three summers… and haven’t read it. Since I gravitate towards light books in the summer and I heard this was sad, I keep pushing it off until it’s not summer anymore and I don’t feel like reading it. Hopefully, that will change this summer!

  • Something in Between by Melissa de la Cruz

Something in Between

I was excited when I heard about this book, but then read other books with a similar plot and never got around to this one. I still want to read this book, but I’m still not sure when I will get around to it.

  • Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5)

I’m a huge fan of The Lunar Chronicles, but I still haven’t read Fairest. It’s been on my TBR for awhile and I actually received a copy as a birthday present, so I have no excuse not to read it. Hopefully, I can get around to this book closer to Halloween.

  • The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

The Chronicles of Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia, #1-7)

I’ve actually read this book once, but it was in fourth grade so I don’t really remember it. For awhile, I’ve been wanting to read this book again, but haven’t pick it up. I also really want to re-watch the movie so maybe I can use that as motivation for reading the book.

  • The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

I set this book out last summer to read it and never got around to it. I’m not too into books that take place over a short period of time, but I enjoyed both Windfall and Jennifer E. Smith’s short story in Summer Days and Summer Nights. Maybe I can cross this off my TBR list during February when I plan to read a lot of cute contemporary books.

  • Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton 

Jurassic Park (Jurassic Park, #1)

I bought a copy of Jurassic Park awhile ago because I love the movies and wanted to read the books. However, I heard the movie is different from the books, so I’m not sure how much I would end up liking the books compared to the movies. It’s also a completely different type of book that I usually read, so I’m not sure how motivated I am to cross this book off my TBR.

  • The Rose and the Dagger by Renée Ahdieh

The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath and the Dawn, #2)

I read The Wrath and The Dawn early last year and thought it was okay. Normally, I wouldn’t continue a series I’m not very invested in, but since this is a duology I am still holding onto some hope that I would pick this up and finish it. However, I’m not sure if this one will ever come off of my TBR.
