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.
So today’s prompt was chosen by Caitlin Althea and her chosen prompt is….Books on my TBR I’m avoiding reading and why…
So rather than merely posting book covers with a bit of context I thought I would speak in a bit more detail. Now don’t get me wrong those covers will come as I also don’t want this post to become too text heavy. There’s a few books that I’m unsure I want to name as they are from three of my favourite authors but they are hardbacks which are a pain in the arse to carry around. Don’t get me wrong signed and on a shelf or on a well laid out Instagram post they look fantastic but when you’re trudging them to and from work with your lunch and your gym stuff not so much. So that’s my first bug bear.
When this series was first released there was so much good and bad hype. I didn’t instantly jump on the bandwagon as the bad stuff kept on coming but as time went on I became intrigued. I read the first one and I enjoyed it it peaked my interest, the second one took me ages to read as I kept getting distracted don’t get me wrong when I was sat and fully invested I enjoyed it. I still haven’t picked up the third one it’s somewhere in my mass of books at home. I must say it’s a series we regularly receive at Cancer Research.
Like most book sagas I got into this one late and I loved doing so as I could get my hands on the next instalment I read books one and two in quick succession. I even attended a preview screening of Catching Fire – I couldn’t bare to say goodbye to these characters and I still haven’t been toying with the idea of reading now but haven’t yet caved.
Now I know this one is going to raise some eyebrows. I’ve had this one on my shelf for a while now, I’ve obviously seen the film so know the story. I watched it on a flight to Orlando and my friends thought I was hilarious in how tearful I became.
I’ve only read the first Harry Potter and I only done that a few years back whilst on holiday. I have a few of them at home.
There are probably lots more I could share but as it stands I cannot think.
A question that I will ask to my readers is are there any books I should have read that may not have?
