Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.
This week’s theme is Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read. My TBR is long and, while I have been slowly purging it, there are a few books that have been on there quite some time.
The Book of Lost Fragrances (Reincarnationist #4) by M.J. Rose – I actually just picked up a use copy of this one through Thriftbooks. It is currently sitting on my shelf, waiting for me.
Bryant & May and the Burning Man (Bryant and May #12) by Christopher Fowler – To be honest, I skipped a few books here. The majority of the first ten books on my list are from Rose’s Reincarnationist series. I LOVE Fowler’s Bryant and May books. They are among my favorites but I have gotten a little behind.
Rebel Queen by Michelle Moran – My love of historical fiction actually started with a Michelle Moran novel and blossomed from there. This was well over a decade ago and I still look forward to picking up her books.
The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater – So, I adore Stiefvater’s personality and her talent with art but…I haven’t read any of her books. I know, I know, shame on me. I’ll get there.
An Ember in the Ashes (Ember Quartet #1) by Sabaa Tahir – Anywhere you look someone is talking about this book! I haven’t picked it up yet but hope to do so soon. I just checked and my library does have it so, soon precious child. Soon.
A Murder at Rosamund’s Gate (Lucy Campion Mysteries #1) by Susanna Calkins – I’m still waffling about whether to keep this book on my TBR or not. Some days it sounds like a great book, other days not so much. Only time will tell.
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – I have an intense love of Shannon’s The Bone Season septology so it is only natural that I would want to read a book by her set outside of that world. This one doesn’t yet have a publication date.
The Other Boleyn Girl (The Plantagenet and Tudor Novels #9) by Philippa Gregory – For the last few years I have had a love affair with the Tudor period. That mixed with my love of historical fiction and you have a winner. I own this book already and it is a bit huge and intimidating but I’m sure I’ll read it soon.
The King’s Mistress by Emma Campion – This looks like a historical fantasy romance type deal and I’m good with that. Could be interesting.
That is Top Ten Tuesday for this week. What books have been on your TBR the longest?
