I’m Surprised These Books are Still On My TBR

Posted February 6, 2018 by Sophia

these books are still on my tbrAs fellow book nerds and addicts, you understand the constant addiction of hitting that “add” button because the books are so so good.

You also understand that the TBR continues to grow and grow and… you get the gist.

We’re going to be taking a trip down TBR lane and listing the books that are surprisingly on my TBR still. Plus this is being linked up to this week’s Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Or maybe not, because I have a bad memory. I’m surprised I’ve made it this far in life. I think my managers get tired of me a lot but they’re too nice to tell me that.

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

Considering my record with The Mortal Instruments, where I’ve noted Clary as a whiny little bean who is too whiny for my eyes in City of Ashes, I should have removed City of Glass a long time ago.

Also Goodreads says this is the first book I added to my TBR? I’m 99.9% sure it was City of Bones first?

Prince of Wolves by Quinn Loftis

I was once that person who would 1-click any book that was free on Amazon and sounded amazing. Five years later, I look at the synopsis and I’m wondering why I even have the book.

Ethereal by Addison Moore

If I were judging a book by a cover… Ethereal would be removed in a heartbeat because the cover feels too simple for me.

Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead

No one tell Lupe this or she’ll disown me as a coblogger and friend. I thought I read this? Obviously I haven’t, according to Goodreads. And my memory isn’t that reliable either…

Awaken by Rachel M. Humphrey-D’aigle

Now that I look at the author’s name and the cover, I question my high school self. WHY did I choose this again? How did I even found this book interesting? Did it have a different cover at the time, because oh my lord my brain is crying.

I am judgmental with book covers. Shame on me. And I also switched the last names around! 😰

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

I really enjoyed Tim Burton’s movie version of this and the cartoon version, so you’d think after watching and enjoying two different versions, I would’ve read the book already.

There must be a pattern here. 😳

Okay, that’s enough of “How 15-year-old Sophia Was a Very Bad Judge When It Came to Books.” I should go through my TBR one day and remove all the books that I’m not interested in anymore, but that TBR pile is so gosh darn longgg. 😵

Let’s talk: What books have been on your TBR the longest? Any books that are on your TBR surprisingly? Any that makes you want to hide in a hole somewhere?

Sophia started blogging in February 2012 for the hell of it and is surprisingly still around. She has a GIF for nearly everything, probably listens to too much K-Pop and is generally in an existential crisis of sorts (she's trying her best). In 2020, she graduated with a Bachelor's in Communications and minor in Women's Studies. More of her bookish reviews and K-pop Roundups can be found at The Arts STL.
