Top Ten Tuesday | Pre-Blogging TBR

Ten Books I Purchased Before I Started Blogging That I STILL Haven’t Read Yet

#1. House of Scorpions
I bought this shortly after joining Goodreads, when I was hitting the Dystopian’s hard.  Year by year, there it sits, untouched on my bookshelf.

#2. Ship Breaker
See above, same situation.  I think I bought them around the same time.  Never read, but I also can’t seem to let them go.

#3. Sacajawea
I’ve had this paperback book since I was a little girl.  I’ve always loved Historical Fiction, and I want to read it.  As a little girl it just looked so daunting, as a woman I can’t get past that little girl’s nerves.

#4. The Bronze Horseman
I bought this years ago, having seen so many comparisons between this and Outlander.  I know I should read it.  My protectiveness over Outlander won’t allow it.

#5. The Amulet of Samarkand
After the completion of Harry Potter I went on a search for another children’s fantasy series.  I bought the box set of the original Bartimaeus trilogy and now it sits on my daughter’s shelf, unread by either of us.

#6. The Enemy
This was a double whammy.  I love Zombie books, and they’re also my husband’s favorite genre.  I bought this thinking it was a good pick for both of us.  Again, neither of us ever picked it up.

#7. Black House
A friend of mine convinced me to read more Stephen King.  One of them was The Talisman.  I loved it and wanted the sequel.  Now it collects dust on my bookshelf, untouched.

#8. 20 Boy Summer
Around the time I bought my first Kindle I went e-book happy.  I bought a million of them, all on a whim.  This was a ‘whim’ selection.  This is also the reason for #9.

#9. North of Beautiful
See #8.  Shortly after buying both I lost interest in the genre.

#10. The Land of Painted Caves
Clan of the Cave Bear is one of my all time favorite books.  I liked Valley of the Horses, and Mammoth Hunters.  After that they got more and more repetitive.  I won the final book on a Goodreads Giveaway in 2011, and haven’t read it to this day.

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

    I bought The Bronze Horseman because of the Outlander comparison. I’ve yet to read it either. I think the sheer size of it put me off a bit. Great List, I may have to add a few of these to my TBR pile lol.

    Happy Reading
