Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they suggest a new theme for bloggers to write about. This week’s theme was ‘Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading and Why.’ I struggled to come up with ten, so there are only six this week!
Every person I know who has read The Book Thief has rated it highly which really makes me want to read it, but I’ve also heard that it’s one that is certain to make you cry. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good book to make you cry, but I just need to work myself up to it!
I was really excited about Stealing Snow before it came out, and I pre-ordered a copy, but then I heard that it didn’t live up to the hype for a lot of people. I still want to read it, but it just means that I’ll go into it with fewer expectations.
I know, I know. I’m ashamed with myself, but I haven’t read ANY of the Harry Potter books. I can’t even pinpoint exactly why I haven’t read them, but I think it might be because they’re so hyped and I don’t want to be disappointed! That, and I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I hope to read them soon though.
It’s probably obvious why I’m so late to read this book — it’s huge! Which is great, but it’ll probably take me a while to read it so I think I’m going to plan to read this one over the Christmas break.
I’ve had a copy of Lady Midnight waiting to be read since it came out, but for the same reason that I haven’t read The Priory of the Orange Tree, I just haven’t gotten to it even though I have the feeling that I’ll love it.
I remember the buzz that Asking For It got around it’s release. I’ve heard that it’s a very powerful and important book, but it also sounds very heavy which is why I haven’t yet picked it up.
What books have you been putting off reading? Have you read any of these? Let me know in the comments!
