Top Ten Tuesday – Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018!

So, I didn’t like the theme for this week, so I’m going back in time to this one!

Anna Karenina

This has been on my TBR since October 2012. Jesus, I’m bad at reading books. But, this is on my TBR for this year. I’m going to read it by the end of this year, so this book will be off of my list.


The Hunchback of Notre Dame

This has been on my TBR since March 2013! Growing up, I loved the Disney movie. Still do, tbh. The one Disney movie I love is full of death, murder, hypocrisy, and racism. But, the book? Haven’t gotten there yet. I think this may be a 2020 book, but I sincerely want to read it.


Twelve Angry Men

This has been on my TBR since April 2013! Way back in high school, one of the English teachers had this on his syllabus and one of my friends really enjoyed it. So, I added it. And, each time I do a TBR purge, it stays on here. Maybe I’ll do this in the summer since it’s a play.


The Stranger

This has been on my TBR since March 2013! When I decided to take AP Literature in my senior year, we started with one teacher. Suddenly, he decided to retire and left us hanging with a new teacher who hadn’t expected it. He had put this book on our reading list. She took it off. So, I own a copy and it stays on the TBR.


The Seance

I added this book way back in June 2013. Honestly, I have no clue what this book is about. I really should look into this book to see if I want to keep reading it.


The London Underworld in the Victorian Period: Authentic First-Person Accounts by Beggars, Thieves and Prostitutes

This book has been on my TBR since June 2013. And, honestly, this book will stay there for a long time. Why? Because it sounds fucking interesting. I’m sure I’ll read it sometime, but I have no clue when.


The Fort

This book has been on my TBR since July 2013. Yet again, I don’t really know what this is about but it sounds horrifically fun so I’ll be reading it, or at least giving it a try.


The Automat

I’ve had this book on my shelf since July 2013, too! It looks creepy, but I honestly don’t remember what this book is about. So, there’s that.


The True Memoirs of Little K

Last book and this has been on my TBR since July 2013 as well! And, again, I have no clue what this is about. I need to go through another purge, don’t I?


Talk to me!

Do you think you’ll ever get to them?
