Top Ten Tuesday

I was thrilled when I found so many people liked my seasonal goals / bucket list-thing I shared last week! I loved the idea myself, but didn’t expect so many other people to like it as well, hah. Definitely started some fun conversations and that’s what TTT’s are for, right?!

So, as it’s Tuesday, it’s time for another conversation starter, yay!

TTT general

Today’s topic is supposed to be “Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read” but, as per usual..
I’m going with something else: “Why Have I Not Read these?!”

Have to say, there are different reasons as to why I haven’t read these books yet. Either because the hype is real and I want to wait until it’s cooled off a bit, or because.. well.. I’ve seen some reviews that made me less eager to read them. Or – most used and known reason – because the books disappeared in my endless mountain of unread books and I just can’t seem to find the time to catch up on them! [Let’s admit: it’s probably the latter for all these books, but shhh.]

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1)Alex, ApproximatelyThe Green MileThe Upside of UnrequitedNevernight (The Nevernight Chronicle, #1)

Out of these five, I think the one I’m most disappointed about not picking it up yet would be The Green Mile, simply because I absolutely loved the movie and.. I really want to read the book?

Shadow and Bone (Grisha Verse, #1)The Last Namsara (Iskari #1)Girl Hearts GirlDumplin' (Dumplin', #1)Are We All Lemmings and Snowflakes?

I can’t even pick the one I’m most eager to pick up out of all these. I know it’s a disaster I haven’t picked up Shadow and Bone yet but.. The Last Namsara sounds pretty amazing as well? Not to mention Dumplin’!

What books do you still have on your TBR even though you really wanted to read them the moment you got your hands on them? Are there any big, hyped books on there?
What’s the reason you haven’t read them yet?

    1. I don’t know, haha! I’m not sure I’ll have plenty of time during the IT-readalong to read a lot of other books and I’m not sure it’s a smart move to read Nevernight while I don’t have Godsgrave on my shelves? I’m in doubt!

  1. I won’t tell the books that you can’t find them… although I suspect that they already know, LOL.

    I want to read Leigh Bardugo’s books, but there are just so many books crying out for my attention right now. Especially the ones I requested at the library that I have to read before the Kindle system takes them back. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll get to them until early next year.

    1. Hahaha! I’m pretty sure they’re giving me the stink-eye every time I walk pass my shelves. 😀

      Ugh, I feel you! Fortunately and unfortunately I never get books from the library so that’s one bookish source less but.. that doesn’t mean I’m not drowning in unread books anyway, haha. Hope we both get to read the ones we’re most eager to though! 🙂


  2. I haven’t read any of V.E. Schwab’s work yet, but I keep hearing good things about her. I finally read Six of Crows and just started Crooked Kingdom. I’m really enjoying them so I’ll probably be reading more of Leigh Bardugo’s work. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

    1. Same here. It’s why I’m so curious to read some of her books. 🙂 Oh, hope you love Crooked Kingdom! Leigh Bardugo’s definitely one of my favorite authors even though I only read three of her books, hah. 🙂


  3. Oh, Alex Approximately! I have been dying to read this one for so long as well, hopefully we both will get to it soon 😀 It sounds like such a great, adorable read.
    I can’t wait for you to read ADSOM – it is really, really hyped, but I found that it was incredible, that world-building is fascinating! 🙂

    1. Fingers crossed! I’ve been reading mostly fantasy lately and I’ve noticed contemporary calling my name a LOT louder since yesterday so.. who knows.. I might just pick it up today, haha.
      I’m hoping to read it soon. Especially since it’ll help me tick off some of the older books on my TBR – if people are right and I’ll be tempted to binge-read them, haha. 🙂

    1. Oooh, awesome! Glad you liked it! I want to read the ADSOM-books first before I buy any other of her books but I keep hearing only good things so it’ll only be a matter of time before I succumb to the pressure and buy them all, haha. 😀


    1. I feel you. It’s always dangerous to read hyped books because our expectations are automatically way higher than they would’ve been otherwise. Let’s hope the hype doesn’t ruin Schwab’s books for us!
      Thank you. 🙂


  4. Great list! You’re not alone, I haven’t read Shadow and Bone yet either, but I adored the Six of Crows duology so I’m planning to read it soon.

  5. I haven’t read most of these either, save for two books. Are We All Lemmings & Snowflakes is such a great book, although the main character can be quite frustrating. Patience is a huge must. Haha!

    I also recently finished The Last Namsara because I was approved for a NetGalley ARC of the companion/sequel, The Caged Queen. I preferred The Caged Queen, but the first book is still pretty good.

    Hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

    * TTT: To all the authors I follow on Twitter & the books I haven’t read 🌷🌷🌷

    1. Oh boy; good to know, haha! I’m sometimes short on patience when it comes to main characters in contemporary so I’ll need to prepare myself for that one.

      Ooh, good to know! I’ve been keeping clear of reviews when it comes to both those books. The only thing I remember is DRAGONS and that’s really all I need to know. Now to.. read it.. :’)

      Thank you, Shealea! ❤


  6. Oh yeah Alex Approximately… I wanted to read that one and never did. Nice to be reminded, I should buy it while I’m thinking of it. 🙂


  7. You have to read ADSOM and Upside and Shadow & Bone and The Last Namsara (and also, that cover #drool)!!

    (also I was already following you but I just clicked the wrong button this morning~ )

  8. Out of your list, I have read The Green Mile and Nevernight (which I read last month), and I own Alex, Approximately and Shadow and Bone, but have not read them yet. I also have borrowed ADSOM from the Library, but not sure if I will actually get around to reading it or not. Maybe next month.

    I have a whole lot of physical books I own that have been on my TBR forever and I am ashamed to say that I haven’t read yet. Like Roseblood has been on my TBR since it was released and The Outlander series, I am currently up to book 2, but due to reading other books I haven’t started it yet, and a whole lot more than I know are popular, but I just haven’t read.

    1. So jealous you read The Green Mile already! I keep postponing.. Eventually though.. As for Nevernight.. I’m just waiting until the release of Darkdawn is a bit closer since everyone tells me I’ll want to binge them.
      Hopefully you’ll like ADSOM! I’ve only heard great things about it.

      I know the feeling! It definitely helps me that I have a separate TBR-list with books I owned prior 2018 so I can check which ones I should read first – although new releases keep tempting and distracting me, at least I have some kind of overview. 🙂


  9. I’m so glad to see A Darker Shade of Magic and The Upside of Unrequited on this list 😄
    As for books that have been on my tbr since forever, I preordered Truthwitch 2 years ago and I still haven’t read it 😂😂 I’m going to try to soon though 🤗
