Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This Weeks Topic is: Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading and Why
The Priory of the Orange Tree By Samantha Shannon
This book sounds so amazing and has great reviews, but it is huge and has a price tag here in Canada of almost $50 CAD. I just can not bring myself to spend that kind of money and maybe not even read it because of its size.
Hunting Prince Dracula By Kerri Maniscalco
I want to continue the Stalking Jack the Ripper series but I really wasn’t super engrossed in the first book. I am worried that this one will be just as dry and I already spent the money on the series.
My Lady Jane By Cynthia Hand
Like above I have already purchased the 2 books in this series based on amazing reviews. I am avoiding them though because I worry that after spending the money I will not enjoy them as much as expected.
The Program By Suzanne Young
Again I have purchased the 6 books in this series. I expect that I will enjoy them and they aren’t too large, but there are 6 of them. 6 books is a big task to take on when you want to post different reviews at least weekly.
The Rescue By Steven Konkoly
This was a recommendation I found when buy books for my father in law. I am avoiding it because it is a genre outside my comfort zone.
NOS4A2 By Joe Hill
I am avoiding this one again because it is a genre outside my comfort zone. The cover caught my eye and the synopsis looked great.
The Other Boleyn Girl By Philippa Gregory
I purchased this off recommendation from a store employee. When I purchased it I did not realize that is was book 9. I am avoiding this one because I do not want to start in the middle of a series and do not want to buy 8 books either.
To All The Boys I Loved Before By Jenny Han
This series looks fun and cute, but I am avoiding it because it also looks immature.
Heir of Fire By Sarah J Maas
I bought the whole Throne of Glass series, I read books 1 and 2 and the novella anthology. I am slightly concerned that by continuing this series my reading speed will drop and I don’t want to end in a reading slump.
Beautiful Disaster By Jamie McGuire
This book was gifted to me used and its condition is just scary to me. I like my books pristine and this one is far from it. So I avoid it!
What are some books you are avoiding on your TBR?
