Top 10 Books On My TBR That I Am Avoiding

Top 10 Books On My TBR That I Am Avoiding

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. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

The Once and Future King

This one has been read twice, but I’ve only ever made it halfway through. It’s a good book, but I want to read it consistently, not once every few months.

Les Miserables

If you own this book you know how daunting it is. Its basically a brick, put inside of a cinder block. Maybe when I’m 70 I’ll take my first shot at it.

Wizards First Rule

The first book of a giant fantasy series. As exciting as that sounds I can’t afford to buy the rest, and if I read and enjoy the first one I don’t know if I’ll be able to stop myself.

Strategy

I bought this book because it looked really interesting, but much like Les Miserables, it seems too daunting a task to take on right now.

IT

I actually planned on waiting till the second IT movie came out before I read this for the first time. I really enjoyed the movie so I thought I’d enjoy the movies first and see how different the book was after.

2001 A Space Odyssey

No real reason, just haven’t been in the mood for this one yet. I guess a part of me doesn’t want to be dissapointed by a classic.

Life of Pi

The movie was really good, but I remember the book was a bit tough to get through honestly. It’s been a few years since I tried so I’ll give it another shot soon.

Cloud Atlas

I had to read this book for school one year, but being the good student that I am, I used Spark Notes. Always wanted to get another shot at it, but I haven’t built up the willpower yet.

Collective Work of Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes is cool as hell, but I’m not sure I can read dozens of works all together. I’ve been thinking about reading a story at a time, whenever I have free time. Sort of deal with it in chunks.

Assassin’s Creed Series

I loved the video games, and have a few of the books, but I don’t really want to read these honestly. I mean I’ve played the games so I don’t really need to read the books…but I’ll probably cave and read them eventually.

TOP TEN TUESDAY: BOOKS I’VE READ THAT I’D LIKE IN MY PERSONAL LIBRARY

TOP TEN TUESDAY: BOOKS I’VE READ THAT I’D LIKE IN MY PERSONAL LIBRARY

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. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This one took me a long time to figure out, but I think I came up with a pretty good list in my opinion.

The Fellowship of the Ring

I read it on an e-Reader but haven’t purchased a physical copy yet.

Redwall Series

My favourite books growing up. I have kept the main stories, but I’d like to own them all again one day.

One Piece

Seems like a loft goal owning every chapter of One Piece. I’d probably need a room dedicated to it, but I wouldn’t mind that.

Naruto

I think this is a series I could re-read again in a reasonable amount of time, and I’d like to own it in order to do that.

Fullmetal Alchemist

I’ve started the collection, but I hope to own them all one day soon. There’s not too many so it’s not that achievable.

Where the Red Fern Grows

A great book from my childhood that I would love to read again from an adult perspective.

Legend Series

One of my favourite YA series that I’ve read. I always got the books from my school library, so owning them would be nice, especially since there is a new one coming out soon.

Various Shakespeare Works

Something about owning a bunch of Shakespeare stories makes me feel distinguished? Educated? Either way I’d like to own some more.

Sherlock Holmes

I’ve read a few Sherlock Holmes pieces in various books, but I’d like one giant collection of them all.

UnNamed Book from Childhood

I don’t remember the name of it, or who wrote it, but I remember it was about a boy who was kidnapped and dragged to an island in order to figure out a water pumping system his dad built to get at some buried treasure. If that makes any sense to you and you know the name, please let me know!
