This week we're supposed to write about the books that have been on our shelves or TBR list since before we started blogging.
I started blogging in May 2015, and my Goodreads "to read" shelf has 36 books from before that date. Since I cannot possibly share them all, I have selected the 10 that I am most ashamed I haven't gotten around to reading yet.
The Art of Seeing by Cammie McGovern
I love Cammie McGovern, and I love books about sisters, so why haven't I read this book?! Seriously.
Side Note: I also need to read Neighborhood Watch by Cammie as well.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
I have heard nothing but good things about this book, but I still haven't read it yet. Maybe because it's about WWII? I don't know that I've read a YA historical fiction book about WWII though, so I really need to give it a try.
Counting by 7s by Holly Goldberg Sloan
I know I've been avoiding this one because it's middle grade, but I've had some pretty good luck with middle grade recently. Plus I just read this review on The Deliberate Reader, and it renewed my interest in this book.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Maybe I'll wait for this series to be finished? :)
Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Barnes is seriously my third favorite author, and thanks to my Secret Santa I have had this book in my house since December. Why haven't I read it? I need to ASAP.
The Girl with All the Gifts by M.R. Carey
I think I first heard about this book on mommablogsalot, and Jen has mentioned it several times since that original post. It sounds strange and wonderful, and I really do want to read it. Just...time. Ya know?
Legend by Marie Lu
I should get to this book this year if I keep up with my new author challenge. I know the reason I haven't read this book yet is that I am in kind of a dystopian slump. I'm hoping to be out of it by winter, so I can read this series.
The Paper Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg
Did Jim Dale do the audiobook? Because then I'd listen right away. I love books about magic, but I haven't found the time for this book yet.
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
The third book in this series came out in February, so I really should have read it by now. I will. Someday.
The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay
I had this book out from the library, and it was on my list for May. The book sat on my night stand for 3 weeks, but I had so many other books out that I never got to it, and my next month was already planned, and sadly it went back to the library unread. I will try again at some point. Maybe on audio.
Have you read any of these books? Which one should I tackle first? Are there any you recommend I remove from the list?
