This week’s TTT prompt is calling me out! I was almost afraid to look at my physical TBR in order to choose the books for this list, because I know there are a lot more than ten books that I was excited to read but still haven’t got to!
The Nature of Witches was a Christmas gift last year and I was so excited about it. I thought that I would get to it in that time between Christmas and the New Year, but here we are months later and I haven’t neglected it completely. I am thinking about saving it for this fall!
The Wolf Den is a book I have been coveting since it was published in the UK! I even ordered a copy from the UK and had it shipped to Canada since it wasn’t released here yet. Sadly, it is now available in Canada and I still haven’t read it, so what was the point!? The edition I have really is stunning though!
Sarah Winman wrote Tin Man, which is one of my favourite books of all time! I eagerly anticipated the release of Still Life and bought a copy as soon as it was published, yet it has found itself on this list. This is definitely a case of me saving a book I know I am going to love for the perfect time. I hate when I do that!
The Inheritance Games is super hyped on BookTube and it sounds like something I am going to love. I am telling myself that I am saving it to read closer to the release of the final book in August, but who am I kidding!?
I am so ashamed that Mythos has ended up on this list! I even have Heroes, Stephen Fry’s other book in the series. I also have them both on audio, so I truly have no excuse. I know that reading these along with the audio is going to be an amazing experience and, once again, I am saving them for when I feel like a slump is coming.
I tend to love Pride and Prejudice retellings and many people have told me that The Other Bennet Sister is one of the best! I love that Janice Hadlow has given Mary a voice. I can see myself reading this outside this summer in the mornings with an iced coffee, so I really hope that I get to it.
I know why I haven’t read Blonde! The size of it is intimidating to me, and there is no audiobook! I have always felt drawn to Marilyn Monroe and I am curious to see what Joyce Carol Oates does with her story, especially since this has been adapted.
I have had a signed copy of The Fountains of Silence since it came out in 2019. I finally read my first book from Ruta Septys this year, so my interest in this one has definitely piqued. I can see myself reading it sooner rather than later!
I have started A Curse So Dark and Lonely but got distracted by something else and never returned to it! I have been told that I should treat this book as a standalone, as the rest of the books in the series are disappointing, so knowing that I don’t have to commit to the entire series makes me excited to pick it up again.
I bought a signed copy of If You Want to Make God Laugh at the same time I bought The Fountains of Silence. I loved Bianca Marias’ first book, Hum If You Know the Words, so no excuses here! I have actually been told that this one is better.
