Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a good week since my last TTT, I finally got to see one of my friends, Hannah for the first time since January and it was so lovely to see her in person finally, even if social distancing with your friends feels very odd!
Anyway, it’s Tuesday, which means another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week we’re talking Books I Added To My TBR and Forgot Why and ooh boy…..I had like 60 of these to start off with. I managed to narrow down to ten, but it was tough! On the up side, doing this topic made me go through my TBR and delete a lot of the books that I’d completely lost interest in, so that’s something. Here we go, Top Ten Books I Added To My TBR and Forgot Why:
- The Hidden Memory of Objects-Danielle Mages Amato
I added this along with a load of upcoming 2017 releases at the end of 2016/beginning of 2017 and completely forgot about it. I mean it sounds quite cool, sister tries to solve her brother’s murder, but there are so many more recent releases that I’m more excited for that this one has kind of fallen by the wayside.
2. Winter Queen-Amber Argyle
I don’t even remember adding this one, and I’m definitely not sure why. I reckon it was back in 2015 when Sarah J Maas had made more interested in Faerie stories, but I can’t say I feel all that excited about Fae right now, so I doubt I will be reading this anytime soon.
3. Those Who Save Us-Jenna Blum
Again, I don’t even remember when I added this one to my TBR, it’s been there that long! I do like WWII stories, so it is possible that I will come back to this one at some point, but then again, I feel like if I was really interested in reading it, I wouldn’t have forgotten about it for so long!
4. The Boy Who Dared-Susan Campbell Bartoletti
Another WWII book that I added to my TBR and forgot about. This is much the same as the one above, I like WWII stories but I’ve forgotten about this one for so long that I kind of doubt my interest in it was that high in the first place.
5. Holding Smoke-Elle Cosimano
This sounds cool, a guy in prison for murder who is able to escape prison by leaving his physical body. Also though it’s been on my TBR forever and I’ve never actually felt “I really need to finally get to this” so again, I’m just not sure if my interest in it has waned from that initial excitement.
6. The Girl I Used To Be-April Henry
I had no idea this was even on my TBR until I scrolled through it looking at my books! I do like murder mystery thrillers, but I can’t say it’s a genre I’ve felt pulled to recently and they nearly always seem to disappoint me, so I don’t know if I’ll be picking this one up in the future.
7. The Next Together-Lauren James
Again, I don’t really remember why I added this one, I think everyone on Twitter was talking about the author and I was just intrigued. It sounds very similar to Outlander, which I do love, but in much the same vein as I will never read the Outlander book series, The Next Together sounds way too romance focused for me to fully enjoy it, so I’m not sure why I added it in the first place.
8. Burning Midnight-Will McIntosh
The concept for this one does sound very unique, which I think is why I added it in the first place, but I have come across it a few times in bookshops and never really felt the urge to buy it so I feel like I may have lost interest?
9. These Rebel Waves-Sara Raasch
I barely even remember adding this one, I reckon it was probably before I read Snow Like Ashes and realised I wasn’t a massive fan! I do love pirates, so I feel like I should be more keen on trying this one, but I just haven’t felt the need to pick it up since I added it.
10. The Assignment-Liza M Weimer
I added this one last year when I was looking up 2020 releases, and it does sound interesting, but I added so many 2020 releases that I probably forgot like half of them! I think I will still get to this one at some point in the future, but it’s not top of my TBR.
So there we go, those are the books I added to my TBR and completely forgot why. Have you read any of these? Are they worth it? Are there any I should remove from my TBR? Let me know in the comments!
I’ll be back next week with my annual Summer TBR, funnily my second summer TBR for this year since I was in South Africa during the Northern Hemisphere’s winter!
