Top Ten: Books That Have Been on My TBR Forever

……and I still haven’t read (what is wrong with me?)

Thanks The Arsty Reader Girl for reminding me that I have a lot of books on my TBR that have been there for too long. Not only have they been on my TBR for a really long time, but I own every single one. I’m trying to go on a book buying ban until April to help with the TBR below.

I’m breaking these into a few different categories and I’m going to pick one from each to read this year.

My Classic List – Alice and Wonderland, King Arthur & Tom Sawyer

Yes, I have a list of books that I consider classics that I just have not read. I’m not really sure why I haven’t read these either, I mean, I love reading about King Arthur, and who doesn’t love Alice and Wonderland?

Reading Goal: Read King Arthur before I head to Cornwall and see where he was rumored to be born.

Books since I was in my teens – A Northern Light, Eragon Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

Yeah, you read that right, I have books that I haven’t read but have had since I was a teenager, is this hoarding? Probably. To be fair, they were gifts so I feel like it’s okay? I mean of course I want to read these, I just haven’t felt in the mood to read any of them but not the heart to get rid of them. I can’t even tell you what A Northern Light is about, and with Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, as a New Yorker 9/11 is still raw and I feel like I’ll be an emotional wreck reading it.

Reading Goal: Read Eragon

The intimidating books – Anna Karenina, Alan Turing: The Enigma, Jane Eyre & The Gunslinger

Yeah, okay, some of these are also classics but I wanted to explain why I haven’t read these. For one, they are either BIG books or just books that seem creepy (The Gunslinger). It’s not that I don’t read big books but now that I set reading goals for myself, I never want to not make that goal due to a large book.

Reading Goal: Read Anna Karenina once my other 52 books are read.

What are some of your books that have been on your TBR forever?
