Top Ten Tuesday #62: Top 10 Books that have been on my TBR shelf for a long time


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme that was formerly created at The Broke and the Bookish but has now moved to That Artsy Reader Girl. 


This week's top 10 Tuesday topic is "Top 10 Books that have been on my TBR shelf for a long time!"  So, it's that time of year again to talk about my EVER GROWING TBR shelf and how I still haven't reached those precious books that have been on my TBR shelf for so long that SPIDER WEBS are growing on those books!

So, here's my top 10 Books that have been on my TBR shelf for a long time (in no particular order, of course)!



1.  Vampire Knight Volume 3 by Matsuri Hino (since 2009):  Alright, I will admit that I didn't even get to the first two volumes until MUCH, MUCH later.  But, now I have and I still haven't gotten around to this SUCKER yet!




.
2.  Postal Seance by Henrik Drescher (since 2010): I know, I know.  I am a self-proclaimed fangirl of Henrik Drescher's books and yet I haven't even touched this BABY since I added it to my TBR shelf MANY EONS ago.  WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME!?






3. Going Postal by Terry Pratchett (since 2010): 1) This is just ONE of the Discworld books that's been on my TBR shelf (I just chose one of these BABIES because putting them all on this list would be a MAJOR OVERHAUL) 2) I still haven't read ANY books by Terry Pratchett (SERIOUSLY, GIRL?), so this book is over its due date.




4. Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione (since 2010):  MAN, I so wish to go back to the days where I used to read up to FIVE romance books a month!  This one particular romance title is definitely in need for some LOVING from me! 





5.  Extreme Exposure by Pamela Clare (since 2010):  Another romance title from long ago that needs some "TENDER LOVING CARE (TLC)" from me!








6. Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard (since 2010):  Another book that needs some "TENDER LOVING....  You know what?  All romance titles on this list from here on out are going to get some "TENDER LOVING CARE (TLC)!"





7.  Line of Scrimmage by Marie Force (since 2010): See #6 for info.






8.  A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught (since 2010):  See #6 for info.






9.  Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier (since 2010): A fairy tale retelling of one of my most favorite fairy tales?  HOW DIDN'T I READ THIS YET!? 






10. Beauty by Robin McKinley (since 2010):  You know what?  Check out #9 for more info!

  3. Vampire Knight is a great manga! I read it a few years ago but still remember it! I'd highly recommend. My TTT http://www.amysbookishlife.co.uk/2018/02/top-ten-tuesday-books-that-have-been-on.html

  4. Haven't read Beauty either, but do now MANY readers are big fans of this classic fairy tale. I also have a friend who reads a lot of Terry's books. I've not read any, but did see the Going Postal miniseries. My memory of it is that it's quite funny. :)

    Thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland!!

  6. You are much braver than I to not only list the books, but to include how long they have been on your TBR. I thought about doing that, but did not want to get depressed about the fact that it is highly likely I will never read every book I want to before I die.

    1. Don't worry! I'm pretty sure you'll read most of the books on your TBR!

  7. 'Beauty' is one of my favorite retellings ever; I reread it about once every year and a half or so. I read Daughter of the Forest years ago and thought it was really good, but I've forgotten so much of the detail that I should reread it. (Book 2 in the same series made my TTT list this week.) And if I had listed books that I've been meaning to read, rather than books in my Goodreads to-read list that I actually have, I would have had the Terry Pratchett books on there too. I hope you get to read at least a few of these soon!

  9. I am only familiar with Marie Force, who I feel like I should read something from, since she is so big in romance.

  10. I've head good things about Vampire Knight from my friends who enjoy manga and have shoved the books at me, but I've never considered reading it myself.

    I'm picky when it comes to reading mangas though... :/

    1. I'm pretty picky about manga myself. I have to at least hear about the manga first before I buy it.

  12. I've only read one Juliet Marillier novel (Wildwood Dancing), and it was excellent! I definitely need to read more of her books!

  14. I also haven't read any Terry Pratchett and at this point kind of don't know where to start! But I definitely need to pick up his books too because they're so well loved. Great list!
