Ten books that are on my TBR list since like, ever

This one is a whopper and would be better executed when looking at my bookshelves but I’ve gotta work with what I have.

  1. City of Bones series by Cassandra Clare: I’ve read the first five (books 1-2 of The Mortal Instruments, and the Infernal Devices trilogy) but I have yet to finish it. I enjoyed the books that I’ve read in the series so far but it wasn’t one I could marathon; thus, it’s being pushed back again and again.256683
  2. A Torch Against the Night  by Sabaa Tahir: I read An Ember in the Ashes on a whim. I went to BN with no intention of buying a book (lololol) and I saw her first book in the series and bought it. And loved it. Then lost it. Then someone gifted me a BN gift card and told me to buy her book again so I could finish it because I was soooooo close to finishing it. GAH. But I did, it was great, so I bought ATATN and read about 1/4 of it and put it down. I haven’t picked it up since. Largly in part because I don’t remember the first book very well and it’s really a series where you need to remember what happened in book #1 in order to follow ATATN.25558608
  3. The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco: A book I probably won’t end up reading. It didn’t get the best reviews and I tried to start it on Netgalley and failed. It’s on this list simply because it was on my TBR list for so long. It’s a DNF and I’m not sure I’m going to try again, even though it’ll bring my Netgalley score down.30095464
  4. Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: I LOVED the first book, Illuminae, but I tried to read the second book, Gemina, and failed at it. This is a book I know I’ll love, so why the fudge am I not picking it up yet?? The third book comes out very soon and I’m hoping to meet the authors so I need to hop on this to get myself all ready for the third book.29236299
  5. Nevernight by Jay Kristoff: I’ve hear great things about this book and the cover is dope (I’m talking like the kids do, lololol). It got nearly 5 stars out of 11k reviews so I am excited to read it. And buy it. A lot of the books on this list are books I already own but this is an exception. I don’t own this, but I should. Something that deterred me from buying this book is the fact that it’s more expensive than a hardcover book and it’s paperback. 26114463
  6.  50 Shades Darker by E. L. James: The first book sucked and misrepresented the leather community. I don’t doubt that this book will suck as well, it’s just something I feel like I should read. I’ll probably put it down in disgust, but I’m at least going to give it a good; especially considering I own the whole series, Grey included. 11857408
  7. This Savage Song by V. E. Schwab: I’ve heard great things about it, I follow Victoria Schwab, and I’ve almost owned it a few times but I just haven’t bought it, nor read it. If I find it at a library book sale, I will hop and that and make it miiiinnnneeee.31706495
  8. The Merciless II: The Exorcism of Sofia Flores by Danielle Vega: I listened to the first on audiobook in 2015 or something insane like that, as I drove to and from school. It wasn’t the greatest book, but it was entertaining and I’m anxious to continue the series. 27209488

  9. Strange the Dreamer  by Lani Taylor: I see this book like every time I walk into a bookstore and I have yet to pick it up. It’s one of those books that I see so often it’s almost like I already own it and don’t feel the need to actually get it. I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone and struggled through it but she is an amazing author, no matter how tedious the book was to get through. 28449207
  10. Carve the Mark by Veronica Roth: O. M. G. People are throwing the biggest fuss about this book. I wanted to read it, now I’m conflicted. Do I read it for pleasure, because I want to, or do I boycott it to make the other readers happy? She’s been accused of able-ism and something-or-other that I can’t remember. If we’re going to take issue with something about every author, then books will never be read. 30117284
