Ahhhhhh, the pesky TBR (that’s the to-be-read list for those of you who may not know). It sits in the back of our minds (aka on our Goodreads page) looming over us, casting us in its menacing shadow, threatening to topple over and smother us with the books with have promised ourselves we’ll read. Basically it’s the best and worst thing ever. So here are some of the books that have been on my TBR the longest.
1. Dune by Frank Herbert
My husband has threatened divorce if I don’t read this one soon.
2. Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
UGH. I know I need to read this series already.
3. Heart’s Blood by Juliet Marillier
I adored Marillier’s Daughter of the Forest, so I have been meaning to read another one of her books. This one has come highly recommended!
4. The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle
I love reading children’s classics, and especially the ones that have inspired such iconic movies. This has been on my TBR ever since I knew it existed!
5. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
YEAH I HAVEN’T READ THIS OKAY? Leave me alone, it’s on my never-ending TBR.
6. World War Z by Max Brooks
I love horror novels, so this is a zombie classic I need read before October of this year!
7. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
There are a lot of Rainbow Rowell novels that have rave reviews, but this one in particular has always appealed to me.
8. The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham
This book sounds weird AF and is definitely considered a sci-fi classic. It’s been on my TBR for a long while now!
9. Warcross by Marie Lu
This one hasn’t been out long, but I REALLY want to read it. It seems like it’s going to be like Ready Player One, which I loved, so… obvi this has to be on the TBR.
10. Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat
This is basically a fantasy romance novel (and romance novels really aren’t my thing), but man so many bloggers RAVE about this series I’ve kept it tucked away on my TBR for when I’m reading for this genre again.
What are some books you’ve been meaning to read by haven’t gotten to yet?
