Top Ten Books I Was SO EXCITED to Get, but...

Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Books I Was SO EXCITED to Get, but Still Haven’t Read. I considered skipping today, because I couldn't think of a single title to add to the list... And then something inside me went, "C'mon, be honest..." My eyes glanced sideways at the two reusable shopping bags in the corner of my room, loaded up with books. It feels weird, and maybe a little shameful that I had to have these books, and there they sit. But I take comfort knowing, that this topic is proof: I am not alone.

1. Norwegian by Night, by Derek B Miller

2. Salvage the Bones, by Jesmyn Ward

3. The Yard, by Alex Grecian

4. Vicious, by VE Schwab.

5. The Sanatorium, by Sara Pearse

6. The Song of Achilles, by Madeline Miller

7. The House Next Door, by James Patterson

8. Hour Game, by David Baldacci

9. Classic Stories, by Edgar Allen Poe

10. A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini

I'm waiting on some hot summer weekends, to spend lounging in a lawn chair, to read some of these. What are you waiting on to tackle your list?

Thank you to our host That Artsy Reader Girlfor reminding us, we are not alone.


  1. A Thousand Splendid Suns was a very good read. I hope you like it when you read it.

    My post:

    1. Thank you, I do hear a lot of good things about it.

  2. You're not alone! Not at all. All of us have "shelves of shame" full of books that remain unread for some reason or another, despite us NEEDING to have them ASAP. All I had to do was glance at ONE of my bookshelves to find enough books for my list and more. You're in good company here :)

    Happy TTT (on a Wednesday)!


    1. "shelves of shame" lol. It's ridiculous how quickly books accumulate

  3. I've read a few of these, but the one I'd say is a must-read is The Song of Achilles! (The audiobook version is great, so maybe that's an option if you enjoy audio in general).

    1. That's good to know. I actually have the paperback sitting in my to-read-totebag, so i'd like to think i'm going to make time to crack it open.

  4. I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns. I think you will. Have a great day. Regine

  5. I loved The Kite Runner and got A Thousand Splendid Suns as soon as it was released but still haven't read that one yet either!

    1. Hopefully there will be time, soon! Thank you for stopping by!
