Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. Each week there is a different topic and you make your own list that will fit into that theme.
YAY…Its Tuesday! This week is about ten books on my to be read list that I am avoiding and why. Well I am the classic procrastinator and there are a variety of reasons I have been avoiding these books but here is my list.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
I saw this book at the library and was interested in the description. It definitely sounds like a book that I would like but unfortunately has been on the back burner with all my class readings. Soon I will read it!
Mythos and Heros by Stephen Fry
I paired these two books together because they are both by Stephen Fry. I heard about both of these books on The Graham Norton show and thought it sounded fantastic! I mean who doesn’t like Greek mythology. Again, another book waiting on hold for now for no reason other than I am focused on my schoolwork.
Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman
This is the second book in the Scythe series and I have not read it simply because I am nervous it won’t live up to the first novel.
Educated by Tara Westover
I really, really want to read this book but have not yet because I know it will be difficult to read. Hopefully it comes off my TBR list soon!
Ayoade on Ayoade by Richard Ayoade
Another book I heard of through The Graham Norton show! This book sounds absolutely delightful and very comical. I have been avoiding it because once I ick it up I am not going to be able to put it down and I have other things to read right now.
See What I Have Done by Sarah Schmidt
Okay, normally I would not have a book like this on my TBR list but I am nervous it wont be as good at it sounds. Frankly the reviews are wish washy too.
The BFG by Roald Dahl, illustrated by Quentin Blake
Not going to lie, Roald Dahl is not my favorite author. I have wanted to read The BFG to have knowledge of how the book is for my future students.
The Shack by Wm. Paul Young
I actually started this book at one point but I ended up needed it put it down so I could focus on my classwork reading. Hopefully soon I am able to pick it back up!
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
The only reason I have not taken this book off my TBR book is because I am nervous it won’t live up to the hype.
What are your thoughts on these books? Should I stop delaying reading them?
Thank you for visiting and happy reading!
