It can be painful to look back on past TBRs and see how terrible I am at sticking to them! There are some books I have forgotten about completely and others that have shown up on so many TBRs throughout the years. I am happy that this week’s TTT topic shamed me this way- it was an eye-opner!
I love that, in 2017, I shared why TBRs don’t work for me, but here we are five years later and I still attempt to make them! I am proud to say that I have read many of the books on my Winter TBR from 2017 and there are a few I am no longer interested in. That said, I was shocked to discover that I have had Britt Marie Was Here on my shelves for this long and I still haven’t read it. What is wrong with me?
I had a lot of success with my March TBR this year and there is only one I have yet to read. I was so excited about The Lost Dreamer, but I have heard a lot of mixed things. If you have read it, I would love to know what you think!
I tried to read A Discovery of Witches last year and I could not get into it! I think I went into it with the wrong expectations, so now I know what I am getting into when I try it again. I included it on my spring TBR last year but I know it has been on multiple TBRs throughout the years.
I really think I am going to love Jar of Hearts and I cannot believe I haven’t read it yet. I actually haven’t read anything by Jennifer Hillier, but all of her thrillers sound interesting. I included this book on my Thriller October TBR in 2020!
How embarrassing! I first included The Starless Sea on my Fall 2020 TBR, but I found it on so many other TBRs when putting this post together. It is a book that I have read the first chapter of so many times and one I am curious about, but it just never feels like the right time!
I have been meaning to read Blonde for ages! I put it on my Summer TBR last year and I really wanted to get to it because I knew that the movie was coming out at some point in 2022. I really don’t see myself getting to it before release day now, which is a shame!
I forgot all about The Reading Rush! I remember being so excited about This Is How It Always Is, but I have completely forgotten about that book until now.
The size of The Forgotten Garden scares me and I have never read anything by Kate Morton, but it is still a book I would love to get to eventually. I cannot believe that I spoke about it being one of the biggest books on my TBR all the way back in 2018!
The Library at Mount Char is a book I have put on a million TBRs and I have a feeling is going to be my kind of weird, but I just never seem to get to it!
The Girl With the Louding Voice has the potential to become an all-time favourite, and I think that is why I continue to add it to TBRs but never pick it up. It is just one of those situations where I am saving it for the perfect time, even though there is no perfect time!
