{Top Ten Tuesday} Books Forever on my TBR List

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is the Top Ten Backlist Books I Want to Read.

I usually clear out my TBR list a few times a year, knowing there are a ton of books I will never have time to read and removing the books I’ve lost interest in. But there are several that still remain, because I’m determined to read them someday!

Between Shades of Gray – I have heard this book is fantastic and have loved another book I read by this author. I also read somewhere that it’s being made into a movie, so I need to read it soon.

The Bungalow – I don’t know why it’s taking me forever to pick up this book. I love Sarah Jio and have read all of her books except this one.

Angelfall – This series has great reviews, but I will admit that I’m always hesitant to get sucked into a series, and I have to be in the right mood for this genre.

Red Rising – Another series loved by many, but I haven’t been in the mood to pick it up, yet.

The Sweetness of Forgetting – I loved another book by this author and would like to read more of her books. And also, I love this cover.

Infinity + One – I am actually ashamed to have an Amy Harmon book on this list, since she is one of my absolute favorite authors. This is the only book of hers that I haven’t read, and I have been hesitant, because the reviews range from love to hate. I want to be in the right mood before I pick it up.

A Bird on a Windowsill – A blogger friend recommended this author to me years ago, saying if I loved Colleen Hoover, I would enjoy this author, too. I admit that I own several of her books but haven’t read one yet.

A Gentleman in Moscow – This type of book isn’t what I would usually pick to read, but it comes highly recommended by so many readers and friends that I’m determined to read it someday.

She Laughs in Pink – My friend, Lori, recommended this book to me a long time ago, saying the same thing as above about Colleen Hoover – if I like Colleen, I’ll like this author, too.

The Hate U Give – I have a Kindle copy of this book, but have been waiting for the audio version to become available to me from my library (and it feels like I’ve been on the waiting list for months). I’ve heard from so many readers that the audio is great, so I’m trying to hold out for it.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Longest Books I’ve Ever Read

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is the Longest Books You’ve Ever Read.

I admit that I avoid reading long books. They intimidate me and I think about how many smaller books I can read in the same amount of time. I’m trying to get better about it.

There are actually 12 books here – I grouped them together either by series or author or both.

 

Always and forever a Twilight fan. I loved all of these books. The Host took me 3 tries before I could get into it, and then I remember reading the entire book in a day.

One of the most unique and fun series I’ve ever read. I didn’t care one bit how long they were because they were all so good.

It seems like every book by this author is super long. I really enjoyed both of these books, but felt they could’ve definitely been shorter and would’ve still gotten the point across.

I honestly don’t remember a thing about either of these books, but I must’ve liked them, because they both got 5 stars. Lol.

I was in the minority on both of these books. Didn’t really care for either one of them, even though the hype was BIG at the time.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Authors I’d Love to Meet

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Authors I’d Love to Meet.

There are several authors I would love to meet! Unfortunately, I don’t see that happening because I am not a big traveler, and because I live in Ohio, and most of these authors don’t have signings in Ohio, except for Colleen Hoover. One of these days I will attend a CoHo signing – it’s on my bucket list!

I think all of these ladies would be so much fun to hang out with….

Colleen Hoover

Tarryn Fisher

Amy Harmon

R.S. Grey

Rachel Hollis

Taylor Jenkins Reid

Kristan Higgins

Sarah Jio

Kendall Ryan

Jen Lancaster

 

Which of your favorite authors would you like to meet?

 

 

{Top Ten Tuesday} Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Books By My Favorite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read.

My list is short because I really do try to keep up on all my favorite authors and their books. I’m ashamed that I still have these books on my TBR list!

Infinity + One by Amy Harmon

I think I’ve put this one off because it’s her one book that people have either loved or hated. I just got a paperback copy and hope to be in the mood to pick it up soon. Then I’ll finally be able to say I’ve read all of Amy Harmon’s books.

Jackal by Tarryn Fisher

I normally read a Tarryn Fisher book the minute it releases, but I have to be in the right mood to read this genre, and it hasn’t hit me yet.

The Bungalow by Sarah Jio

This book has been on my TBR list the longest *hangs head in shame*. I was on a roll reading through my Sarah Jio back list, and then never got to this one. And I’ve heard it’s one of her best books. I just have to make the time for it.

A Place in the Sun by R.S. Grey

R.S. Grey is my favorite when it comes to Rom Com. This one sounds so good, but I just keep putting it off.

Paper Ghosts by Julia Heaberlin

To be honest, I’ve been putting this one off because the ratings are all over the place. It seems like readers either love it or hate it. Julia Heaberlin wrote my absolute favorite suspense, Black-eyed Susans, so the expectation to live up to that book is kinda high. I plan on picking this one up in October as one of my Halloween reads.

{Top Ten Tuesday} Hidden Gems

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish, and is now being featured on That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Hidden Gems (which books haven’t been talked about as much or haven’t been marketed as strongly that you think deserve some recognition?).

Two posts in one day, who dis?!

I do have several books that I feel don’t get enough recognition, and I have recommended many of these books countless times over the years.
