๐Ÿ”Ÿ Top Ten Tuesday | Books That Have Been On My TBR For Too Long!

Top Ten TuesdayHello my fellow bookworms! Today, I am taking part in this week’s TTT topic, which is: ‘Freebie (come up with your own topic!)’. So I am taking this opportunity to go back to the January topic of ‘Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Havenโ€™t Read‘, which I missed out on.

There are far too many books gathering dust on my bookshelves and sitting forgotten at the back of my Kindle’s TBR folder, but here is just ten (not necessarily the oldest) of those that I am most disappointedย  I haven’t got to yet, and I hoping listing them here will get you all to encourage/push me to finally get to them!

1)ย Drood by Dan Simmons (2009)

2)ย The Trysting Tree by Linda Gillard (2016)

3)ย The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart (1970)

4)ย Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson (2001)

5)ย Chocolat by Joanne Harris (1999)

6)ย Demon Seed by Dean Koontz (1973)

7)ย The Agincourt Bride by Joanna Hickson (2013)

8)ย A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan (2013)

9)ย The Kingmaker’s Daughter by Philippa Gregory (2012)

10)ย A Symphony of Echoes by Jodi Taylor (2013)

Please help me! If you have read any of these let me know if you think I should read it or not. I would definitely like to strike some of these off the list this year.

(I have linked this post into the weekly meme, Top Ten Tuesday)

If you have read any of these please let me know in the comments and also leave a link for your own TTT post if you have joined in, too.

  1. I love Mary Stewartโ€™s Merlin series- so I highly recommend The Crystal Cave. Iโ€™ve recently been reading Eva Ibbotson and I like her! I want to read Journey to the Sea. โ™ฅ๏ธ

    1. Great to hear you love Stewart’s Merlin series – I definitely need to particularly get to The Crystal Cave off this list, as I have loved all of the Stewart suspense novel I have read. I have also enjoyed several of Ibbotson’s lovely YA novels, so I really need to read more by her soon, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I read Drood years ago. I remember enjoying it, but I don’t remember anything else about it!

    The Crystal Cave by Mary Stewart has been on my TBR for a while too.

    Journey to the River Sea is lovely (as is most of Ibbotson’s work, I think

    The Agincourt Bride is one I remember reading, but I don’t remember much about that one either.

    I think The Kingmakerโ€™s Daughter was pretty good though.

    I did a list of books with older protagonists: https://franlaniado.wordpress.com/2022/04/05/top-ten-tuesday-books-with-older-protagonists/

    1. Glad to hear you have enjoyed a few of my list, Fran, even if you can’t remember them all too well. I have also enjoyed quite a few of Ibbotson’s lovely YA adult novels, so I am looking forward to reading more by her. And I hope we are both able to read Stewart’s The Crystal Cave soon! ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Pleased you enjoyed the topic and my list so much, Jenni Elyse and I hope we’ll both get to the Koontz and Gregory books on our TBRs soon. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’ve read numbers 3, 5, 6, and 9. I think it just depends on what genre you’re in the mood for since they’re all so different. I enjoyed all four.

  4. The Crystal Cave is a great book! It’s quite different from Mary Stewart’s suspense novels, but I loved it just as much. I enjoyed Drood and The Agincourt Bride too. I hope you have time to get to some of these books soon.

    1. It is great to hear you loved Stewart’s The Crystal Cave, and also enjoyed Drood and The Agincourt Bride, thank you Helen. I hope I will get to them soon! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
