TOP TEN BOOKS ON MY TBR THAT WERE RECOMMENDED TO ME

I have been indescribably awful at keeping up with TTTs, and I apologize. I promise to make more of an effort and post more regularly. I’ll do better. I’ve got time. I’ll make time. cries

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event created, and hosted, by The Broke and The Bookish.

1. The Girl In The Well – Rin Chupeco

Last month, I asked the people over at #DiverseBookBloggers to tell me their favorite horror reads. A few lovelies replied, and I’ve read some of the books and shorts that were recommended to me.

I haven’t been able to get my paws on this one yet, and I’ve gotta admit, I’m a little bit hesitant to start it. The reviews I’ve seen haven’t been the most consistent, and you guys know how picky I am with horror.

 

 

2. The Final Empire – Brandon Sanderson

 I was supposed to read this aaaaaages ago. A friend of mine recommended it to me a couple years ago (iirc) back when I was on a bit of a high fantasy bender. And for some reason I just never got around to reading this one?

I have no idea why. I have to rectify this soon.

BUT AT LEAST I HAVEN’T FORGOTTEN ABOUT IT, OKAY?

 

 

 

3. Shadowshaper – Daniel Jose Older

See, now this one I keep forgetting about.

Another friend of mine recommended this one to me, and it looks really interesting, but I read the blurb and I see it compared to a Cassandra Clare novel, and that gets my walls up real quick.

It does sound really interesting though.

I will read it.

Eventually.

 

 

4. Rosemary and Rue – Seanan McGuire

TWO of my friends recommended the October Daye series to me. And because they’re dating, I’m counting them as one person so that I seem less awful. Fight me.

Why haven’t I read it? Because I go through Urban Fantasy benders. I have to be in the mood to read a UF novel, and will literally never touch one until I am in the aforementioned mood.

I’m weird. I know.

 

 

5. Captive Prince – C.S Pacat

A friend on GR recommended this to me last year, and despite the 3++ stars its gotten from reviewers I trust, I am still yet to start this. Why? No idea. I just let my TBR rise to the height of the Empire State Building without a care in the world.

 

 

 

 

6.  The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern 

I’ve lost count of the number of people who’ve recommended this to me.

I also have no idea why I haven’t picked it up yet. Oh well.

 

 

 

 

7. Ready Player One – Ernest Cline

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. Vicious – V. E Schwab

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9. The Ocean at The End of The Lane – Neil Gaiman

DON’T JUDGE ME, I’M ALREADY JUDGING MYSELF.

 

 

 

 

 

10. Perfume: The Story of a Murderer

 I’m the literal worst.

    Ahhh so many people have recommended “The Night Circus” to me, but I haven’t read it yet. Seems like the kind of book you can’t just breeze through, so I’m waiting until I can set aside a proper time to read it! And “Ready Player One” looks so interesting. I totally get running out of time to post, there aren’t enough hours in the day…where’s a time turner when you need one? 😛 🙂

      I genuinely don’t know why I haven’t picked up The Night Circus yet, but your reason sounds like a solid one, so I’m going to borrow it. O:)
      There so aren’t! WHY DID HERMIONE TRASH THEM ALL? WHY?

      #moodreader problems, right?
      I’ll probably fly through these books once I get in the mood to read them, but until then, in my TBR pile they must stay 😀

    Oh this is such a good list! I have the same problems, I keep MEANING to read the books but then… same as you haha. LOTS of people have recommended The Night Circus to me too, and still nope. I DO want to read Vicious very soon. (So I keep telling myself, anyway!) And The Girl From the Well. Seriously, I feel you! I hope you get to read them soon, and that you enjoy them as much as the people who recommended them did!
