Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Have Been on My Shelf (or TBR) From Before I Started Blogging

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme is a bit sad. Since I've only started blogging for two months, I am going to go with the books that have been on my shelf or my Goodreads TBR list the longest.

1. Endless Summer by Jennifer Echols

I bought this book in the annual Book Fair six years ago. I still haven't read it but I have read two of the other Jennifer Echols book and I love them.

2. Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire

I've tried reading it when I was 15 years old. Of course it was too hard for me so I stopped and have never picked it up again.

3. Hunger (Gone #2) by Michael Grant

I like the first book in this sci-fi series, but I have lost interest in it ever since.

4. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R. Convey

I've read the teen version of it but this adult version has been on my shelf for seven years. My Dad bought me this book because he is really fond of the habits.

5. What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell

This was a really popular book back then.

6. Unearthly (Unearthly #1) by Cynthia Hand

This beautiful hardback I bought has been on my shelf for five years. I don't think I'll be reading it anytime soon since I still have a lot of series to finish reading!

7. Lord of The Flies by William Golding

A classic that's been on my shelf for a long time.

8. Betrayals (Strange Angels #2) by Lili St. Crow

The reason why this book is still on my shelf and I haven't even read it is that I haven't read the first book. I have tried reading Strange Angels but I just couldn't get into the story. I bought Betrayals only because I found it really cheap at the annual Book Fair.

9. Graceling (Graceling Realm #1) by Kristin Cashore

This book was a phenomenon. I have read half of it but never managed to continue reading till the end. So, it's still on my TBR.

10. To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee

Don't look at me.

Now I'm curious what books have been siting on your shelf/TBR list before you started blogging!


  1. I wasn't that keen on Graceling, hopefully you'll have more luck than I did!

  3. To Kill a Mockingbird is so good! I'm excited to finally get to Go Set a Watchman too! I also want to read Wicked, Lord of the Flies, and Graceling! Happy reading! :D
