Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week I will make a list of 10 books, authors or other bookish things surrounding a certain topic. This week, it’s about the books that have been on your shelf since before you became a blogger. I have only been a blogger for about 2 years, so I just chose the 10 books that have been on my to-read shelf on Goodreads the longest.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett // I saw the movie years ago, and book the book years ago. Yet I still haven’t read it. It’s such a shame. I started listening to the audio book once, but never finished it.
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini // Khaled Hosseini is such a big name in fiction, and three of his books have been on my self the longest. At this point, I don’t even remember what this one is about. I’ve forgotten the synopsis.
A Thousand Splendid Sunds by Khaled Hosseini // Like I said, his books have been on my to-read shelf for ages.
The Killing Moon (Dreamblood #1) by N.K. Jemisin // N.K. Jemisin’s books have been on my to-read list for so long. I finally read two of her books this year, yet this one had been on my to-read shelf even longer. For some reason, I never hear anyone talking about this particular one.
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini // I think this is the Hosseini book I’m most likely to pick up. It seems the most universally loved one? I think my mom even read this in Dutch and liked it.
The Demon King (Seven Realms #1) by Cinda Williams Chima // As a fantasy fan, I’m kind of ashamed to say I haven’t read this series yet. I have had the first book on my physical shelf for over 2 years. I’m just so scared to not like it! The hype around this series has been around for ages.
The Magician’s Nephew (Narnia #6 or #1) by C.S. Lewis // I have read a few on the Narnia books, although I read those years ago. I really should continue with the series/buy my own paperback versions.
The Archived (The Archived #1) by Victoria Schwab // This list is just full of authors whose works I should have read ages ago. I love her work as V.E. Schwab but haven’t read any of her word as Victoria Schwab.
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater // I absolutely love her Raven Cycle. Yet I haven’t picked up any of her other books. This one sounds absolutely amazing though!
The Shining by Stephen King // I’ve only read one Stephen King book, The Eyes of the Dragon, and I believe I was around 15 then. It’s about 7 years later now, and I barely remember it at all. I do remember loving it! Yet I haven’t picked up any other works from him.
Those are the books that have been on my to-read list the longest! I know… Have you read any of these? Which ones should I read first?
