TTT: Books Languishing on My TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. There is a new topic each week for bloggers to join in with their own top ten. If you’re looking for some new or different book blogs to read, hop on over to her site and check out some of the links.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic, Books From My Past Seasonal TBR Posts I STILL Haven’t Read, was suggested to our host by Dedra at A Book Wanderer. I love this topic. As you may know, I love compiling my seasonal TBR lists. The more I’ve done them, the more they’ve mostly consisted of books I already have ARCs or or that I have on pre-order. But there are still some that have gotten away from me.

I’m working backward here, so I’m listing the most recent books I haven’t gotten to yet and I stopped once I got to ten. I tend to not stick to the guideline of 10, but I thought I’d give it a whirl this go-around.


I’ve been on the hold list from my library for these books and recently got Book Lovers. The others I’m still waiting for. Unfortunately, I often have a problem of finding time for my library books once I actually do get my turn!

Winter 2021-2022

I’m glad I decided to participate in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday. Usually I get a notification when a book I’ve recommended to my online library is purchased and I’m placed on the waiting list. Somehow this got lost in the shuffle. I checked and it is not available so I’m on the waiting list, finally.

I read all of the books on my Fall 2021 and Summer 2021 lists! Yay!

Spring 2021

This one was for book club and I still really want to read the book. I had other reading obligations at the time and never got around to reading it for book club so it got pushed to the side…for now anyway. I hope to revisit it someday.

Winter 2020 – 2021

I haven’t read a Mariah Stewart book in quite a while. Once again, I’m glad for this topic as it’s reminding me of books and authors that have been on my back burner for too long.

Fall 2020

I had just finished reading my first Jayci Lee book when I compiled this particular list and was interesting in reading more. I have read more from her, just not this book. Instant Karma was just one I had been hearing/seeing a lot of buzz for at the time. I’m on the fence about it now. I’m really interested in getting to Alexandra Ivy. I had read a short story from her in a compilation and loved the story and her writing. Alas, so many books so little time.

That’s ten, folks. I really enjoyed looking back and felt pretty good about the number of books I had planned on reading that I actually did read. And, like I mentioned above, I’m glad for the reminder for some of these stories I have yet to get to.

    I’m on a long library waitlist for Out of the Clear Blue sky. May we both enjoy that one!

  2. Books from the library arrive at the worst times and they arrive all at once. I wonder why that is!

    My daughter loved Book Lovers, so I’m going to need to read that soon, I think.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

      I’ve really enjoyed her other books I read. I have found there are a lot of people that love her stories, like me, and a lot of others that just cannot get into her writing.

  4. West’s book was good. It would be perfect to read this summer.

      I believe it’s your review of this story that had me adding it to my list in the first place. I’m supposedly next on the waiting list!

  5. Cindy Davis says:

    I hope you enjoy all of these when you get a chance to read them.

    I have Book Lovers on hold at my library, but I’m 12th in line. Thankfully they acquired more copies, so I should get it soon.
