Top 10 Tuesday | A Love Letter to All the Owned Books I Still Haven’t Read

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly book tag that was run by The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week she provides a different bookish theme those deep-seated desires to list! Anyone is welcome to join in on their blog, in the comments or any other way. 

– Top 10 Backlist Books I Own & Still Need to Read –

Now, this is a TTT prompt I can really get behind because, like most of you, my owned TBR list is RIDICULOUS. I try really hard to not let it get too out of control but even so my evergrowing book hoard is reaching a new level. As we’re showing some love to backlist books this week all of the books featured below are ones that were released prior to 2018, physical books that I own, and a combination of ones I’m most excited to read as well as those that have been here since the dawn of time.

Been Here the Longest

books x 5 (1)

The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina
Allegiant by Veronica Roth
White Teeth by Zadie Smith

I’m 90% sure that all of these were acquired around or before 2016 and haven’t been read yet because of lack of enthusiasm/forgetting/omg why Veronica Roth

I’m sure we will all be put to shame by this topic but it’s ok, we can all be a bit ashamed together and encourage each other to get round to all the great books we own.

This month for the #mythothon I’m reading Everfair, I’ll Give You the Sun, and the Last Namsara ❤

  1. I love, love, love I’ll Give You the Sun. I just re-read it and I loved it even more the second time. I think it’s one of the best YA contemporaries out there 😊 The Snow Child’s also an amazing read, I was so immersed in the Alaskan setting, definitley a good one to read in the wintertime. I hope you enjoy them both when you get to them! Lovely list!
