Ten Books That Have Been on my TBR Forever

Sorry I’ve been missing lately, school is crazy and I am low on motivation as it is so adding blogging into the mix would only distract me further. Hence, this is going to be a rather short post.

on my tbr the longest
I started goodreads on April 11th 2016, but before that I kept a tbr in my phone notes. I have no way of sorting which books were on there the longest, but here are 10 books that were added to my goodreads on that very first day  (or in the first week) and still haven’t been read.

 

If you’ve read any of these books let me know whether you liked them or not, I need to get hyped so I actually read these soon.

    1. It’s interesting how reading for long periods of time makes books seem to drag on forever!! It really changes the reading experience, especially if you’re already not enjoying the book.

      As for The Midnight Star, join the club! It seems to be a thing among book bloggers I’ve talked to that a lot of people just haven’t read it yet despite enjoying the first two in the series. We’ll get there one day!

  1. I thought Eleanor and Park was okay. It’s quite a unique read, different to typical YA novels. I wasn’t in love with it, but I still thought it was enjoyable and I loved the two main characters 🙂 I’m also interested in Attachments, not sure if I’ll ever get to it!

    1. I didn’t love Fangirl (mainly because the hype was just too big) but I really want to give her other books a try. Attachments has a cool premise but could also come off as creepy… we’ll see.

    1. I’ve also heard some bad things about Eleanor and Park so we’ll see whether I get to it any time soon. I read and wasn’t super impressed by Fangirl (which has so much hype) but I want to see what her other books are like.

  2. My favorites on here were An Ember in the Ashes, though if you wait until June you can binge read all three in the trilogy. The writing is TERRIFIC, so much tension and so much love for all the characters.
    Graceling is another favorite. I LOVE Katsa so much! I would NOT recommend Eleanor and Park. I thought the story was just kind of meh and it’s really offensive.

    1. Binge reading the whole An Ember in the Ashes series sounds right up my alley, but I thought I heard there was a fourth coming out? Maybe I was mistaken. I love the sound of the series though, I just have to find it in a local library!!

      Thanks for your thoughts on Eleanor and Park. Could you give me a bit more detail as to what you found offensive? (or link me to a review). Thanks!

    1. I can relate to there never being enough time! It’s also a matter of which books my local library has because they’re so much easier to access. I keep being told how good An Ember in the Ashes is so I’ll have to go searching for it!

    1. There is a lot of hype surrounding The Knife of Never Letting Go, which makes me all the more eager to read it. I’ve also heard the audiobook is quite good so hopefully you enjoy it!

  3. The Choas Walking series is part of my favorites <3 I also have to read Midnight Star, but if I'm being honest I'm a bit scared to dive into it *hides*

    1. The Chaos Walking series is one I’m really excited to get to, it’s also a favorite of one of my close friends so I trust that I’ll enjoy it too.

      So many people have yet to read Midnight Star!! It’s kind of shocking (but good to know I’m not alone). It’s been so long since I read the first two in the series so I may have forgotten a lot of things…ahhh.

    1. Good point, the writing style is aimed a bit more at younger readers so I’m not sure if I’ll enjoy it now. I still plan on picking up the first book in the series to give it a go.

  4. The Chaos Walking trilogy is really good! I didn’t think I’d be saying that because it took a bit to get into the writing style but I ended up loving the entire series. I also really loved Graceling, The Midnight Star and Eleanor & Park. All great reads I hope you get a chance to check out!

    1. I’m so glad that so many people are telling me they liked the Chaos Walking trilogy! It sounds like an awesome concept I just have to go and find the books.
      Thanks for the heads up about the writing style taking a while to get into, I wouldn’t want to miss out just because it’s a bit of a bumpy start.

  5. I really want to read the Demon Road book as well as the rest of the series. I have read Eleanor & Park and Attachments and enjoyed them both, but have to admit to not being a HUGE Rainbow Rowell fan. Wonder if she is coming out with anything new soon. Seems we haven’t heard a lot from her recently. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I am also really interested in Demon Road! His other series (Skulduggery Pleasant) is one of my friend’s favorites but I’m a bit to old to fully enjoy it. Hopefully I’ll love Demon Road because it has a slightly older demographic.

      I am not a massive Rainbow Rowel fan either, I read Fangirl and thought it was alright but quite overhyped. I’m interested to see what her other books are like though. And it is odd that she hasn’t released anything new for a while.

    1. Thanks! I definitely plan to read Grave Mercy soon because so many people have enjoyed it. I’m sorry to hear that Midnight Star was the weakest for you, I was hoping for an amazing conclusion to the series.

    1. I keep hearing amazing things about The Knife of Never Letting Go so I definitely plan to pick it up this year. The Young Elites is a really interesting book, but it didn’t grip me enough that I’ve actually finished the series.

  7. So many of these are on my TBR too! Especially The Knife Of Never Letting Go and Graceling. You aren’t alone in having not got to them yet!
