This week’s topic:
August 23: Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet (this is going to be sad considering how many of those I have unread six years later…)
I’m SO guilty of this. I buy a lot of books but unfortunately I can’t buy the free time to read all of them, so some books get stuck in the bottom of my reading piles. There are quite a few sequels I haven’t gotten to and some mental health and LGBTQPIA+ reads I haven’t gotten to either. Here are the top ten books I really want to get to soon!
1. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
I’ve wanted to get into this series for such a long time and now that the movie is coming out soon, I’m finally going to read it (soon!).
There really isn’t an excuse for why I haven’t read the rest of this trilogy yet. I loved the first book and loved it, so now I need to finish it off.
3. Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard
Again, I loved the first book so much but it’s so hard for me to get into a second book after waiting for a year. I definitely need to read this before the third book comes out!
4. None of the Above by I.W. Gregorio
I really want to read this book about an intersex teen. I love YA that explores gender identity and expression, so I’m sure that I’ll love this one when I finally get around to it.
5. All-American Boys by Brendan Kiely and Jason Reynolds
I’ve heard so many great things about this book and I really need to get around to reading it! I know this book has a lot of important themes reflecting current events, so it’s definitely in the express lane on my TBR.
6. When We Collided by Emery Lord
I’ve seen this book on so many lists of important mental health reads, so of course it’s one I’m going to want to read soon. I hope I like it as much as I hope I will!
7. OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu
This book has such a cute cover and such an interesting concept. I’ve been meaning to get around to it for forever, but just haven’t gotten around to it.
8. Rites of Passage by Joy N. Hensley
I won this book in a giveaway and it’s been sitting on my shelves, but the concept is so interesting and I really love strong female characters. I hope this book doesn’t disappoint when I do read it.
9. Tease by Amanda Maciel
This book has been on my shelf for years and I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. It seems like a bit of a heavy read, so I might save this one for later in the fall or early winter.
10. The Infinite in Between by Carolyn Mackler
This is another book that has been on my shelf for way too long. I adore contemporary stories and I have heard great things about this one, so I want to get to this one soon.
