Top Ten Tuesday – Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and has been moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January 16, 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is – Books That Have Been On My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven’t Read (but I still plan to…someday). I’m sure we can all agree that our TBRs will never end. Personally, mines has been out of control for a very long time and just grows and grows every single day. There are TOO MANY BOOKS that I want to read…so without further ado, here are 10 books/series that I still plan on reading someday, but have been on my TBR forever….

I’ll Meet You There by Heather Demetrios


After I read the premise for this book, I knew I had to have it. I bought the book from Bookoutlet, it arrived, added it on my TBR, and somehow I forgot about it. I went to Yallwest, met the author, and told her how excited I was to read it, but then weeks and months later, I still haven’t. It’s been years now and it’s still on my TBR waiting to be read. I do plan on reading it…just don’t know when.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

by J.K. Rowling


I really need to just finish this series. I have the book set. I read the first book years ago and loved it. I also really love the movies. Oh and I’m quite obsessed with all things Harry Potter, so I don’t know what spell I’m under because I can’t seem to bring myself to marathon these books.

Crewel World Series by Gennifer Albin


So this was a bit of an impulse buy when I first discovered Bookoutlet. I can never resist books with gorgeous covers. I did briefly read the premise and was quite intrigued, but years later and I still have not even started.

The Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard


I really enjoyed The Red Queen and was incredibly excited when this book came out. But as usual, I was reading something else at the time. I planned on rereading before starting this so I can get a refresher, but decided I would just wait it out until the other books came out.

The Red Rising Saga by Pierce Brown


I’ve heard so many amazing things about this series, so I really don’t know why I haven’t started it… I mean other than the fact that I like to binge series cause I’m not that very good at waiting. I do have 2 of the books though.

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater


I’ve had the book set for like 5 years now and I tell myself all the time that I’m going to start this series on so and so month… but still hasn’t happened.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater


Here’s another series that I’ve been wanting to read in forever, but for some reason I haven’t…If I only have enough time I think most of these books would have been read already… but Oh My Damn … there are just way too many awesome books that I add more than I can read.

The Program Series by Suzanne Young 


I had this book on my Amazon wishlist for quite a while… then I discovered Bookoutlet and bam… I bought the books and planned on finally reading them. But I get reading mood swings and I wasn’t feeling the dystopian theme or reading about suicides. I guess I’m still not in the mood to read anything heavy or depressing.

Enders (Starters #2) by Lissa Price


I saw the first book while shopping at Costco and thought whoa that cover is absolutely mesmerizing. I immediately grabbed the book, read the premise and bought it. I remember reading and being incredibly intrigued by the storyline. It was interesting, thrilling, a bit creepy, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I saw the book on sale… wait for it… at BOOKOUTLET. This online bookstore is without a doubt the best and the worst. I could spend hours just browsing books there and the prices are so great that I end up buying so many. I love it when I finally get my order and opening the box is just so exciting. But then I end up with all these books… It shouldn’t really surprise me that I haven’t read most of them.

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout


When I first got obsessed with Bookoutlet, this was one of the books/series that I wanted to read. I tried to buy all of them with every intention of doing a reading marathon…but… yeah I really don’t have an excuse. I did read the Wait for You series by JLA and absolutely loved it so maybe this year I’ll finally get to this… hopefully.

Bookoutlet was definitely one of the main reasons why I have so many books on my shelves. Seriously…do not get addicted to Bookoutlet. Not that I regret buying from there, but it’s a love/hate thing.

The spirit world has been in touch with Peyton, and it’s more than she
can tolerate. Sometimes their messages are loud enough even to pierce beyond
the veil of her alcohol-induced stupors.

When she is invited to attend her best friend’s brother’s wedding at The Manor
House, Peyton is compelled to stare down memories of her life before it was
decimated by fire and tragedy. Continuously topping herself up with alcohol to
keep the voices at bay, it becomes clearer and clearer that there are forces at
work in the old building…shadows darker than Peyton could have ever imagined.

The Leak of Madness is the beginning of a thrilling, fast-paced series of
horror novellas overflowing with intrigue, romance, redemption, and most

Will Peyton find the normal life she could have if only she stops drinking or
will the forces of evil drive her mad?

 Exclusive Excerpt

“What would the lady like?” he asked as he stood behind the bar, waving
at the bottles in their optics.
Little did he know how much each of those bottles appealed. Like a kid
choosing candy in a store, I was transported back to my first drink, stolen
from my dad’s cabinet. That one had been whiskey. 

Back then, I took whatever I
could get. Now I was old enough—and I might argue wise enough—to choose my own

“Do you know,” I started as I leaned over the bar, looking between the
man and the bottles. He really was a good-looking guy. “That you’re giving me
reason to give in to temptation.”

His smile widened. “Hey, if I didn’t ply you with alcohol, what sort of
bar man would I be?”
I grinned as he continued to watch me. This guy still wore the label of
lad, and he was cute, but I had a couple of years on him. Still, age wasn’t
everything. “See the thing is,” I started again. “My friend doesn’t like it
when I drink.”

“And is your friend your keeper?” He raised his brow.
“No, but see, that’s my point. This has to be a secret.”
“Secret.” He leaned in conspiratorially and I couldn’t help but inhale
the deep scent of his aftershave. 

“I like secrets.”

About Alice:

I’m an author in the North East of
England where I live with my partner and overly-ferocious cat. I have been
writing for as long as I can remember mostly in the dark genres but recently, I
have expanded into other genres (such as young adult). My cupboard is stocked
with an array of different and funky notebooks (because you can never have too
many). My inspiration tends to come from a lot of different places but my first
novel and a lot of my ideas come from my rather vivid dreams (which my partner
tells me I tell him about as I’m still dreaming!)
