“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.”
The theme for this week’s Top 10 Tuesday is books that I wanted to read last year, but didn’t get a chance to. It’s going to be hard to narrow this down to just 10 because I felt like there were so many books that I added to my TBR list last year, but here goes…
I’m currently on the waiting list for this one on my library, but I’ve still got a few more weeks to wait. I love Michelle Obama and I’m so excited to read her book. I’ve also been on a nonfiction / memoir kick lately so I’m extra excited for this one.
I’ve heard a lot of great things about this book, but just didn’t get around to reading it last year. The premise seems super interesting though and I’ve been wanting to read more mysteries, so I’m really excited for this one.
Another popular book with sevens and Evelyn’s in it title that I didn’t stop hearing about last year. I tend to group these two books together in my mind, so I’m equally excited for both of these. I’m not super sure that I’ll like this one. The synopsis doesn’t really excite me, but I know so many people who rave about this book, so maybe it’ll surprise me.
I know, I know. I’m so behind on jumping on this bandwagon. But I’ve heard so many good things about this series lately!
The Percy Jackson books are another series that I’ve been sleeping on. I’ve been recommended these books so many times, but just haven’t gotten around to reading them. Once I finish up this read of The Lord of the Rings, this will probably be my next big series to tackle.
After reading and falling in love with Kate Moore’s Radium Girls, this book was immediately on my radar. I’m looking forward to another book with similar themes. It was also adapted into a movie starring Renée Elise Goldsberry from Hamilton, so I also have that to look forward to.
I learned about this book from an interview the author did that I happened upon. I’m not really sure if it’ll be my cup of tea, but I’m interested in giving it a read. Plus, just look at that beautiful cover. So pretty.
This one is another book that I’ve got on hold from the library, and luckily, I’m one of the next in line for it. I’ve been excited for this since learning about the TV series at NYCC last year, but never got around to reading it. Hopefully I can read it before the show comes out.
This was one of the books I was hoping to read as research for my NaNoWriMo project, but then November came and I still hadn’t read it, and then the year just sort of slipped away from me. Maybe in 2019?
Yet another book that’s on hold from the library (I’m always at my maximum hold limit on Overdrive)… I’ve been interested in this since the Netflix adaptation came out, but never got around to it at the time.
So overall, a lot of these books I am working my way towards reading, which I’m happy about. Maybe by the end of the year I’ll be able to say I’ve read them all…
