When it comes to unread books, readers have two fears.
1) If you have a pile (or mountain…
I KNOW YOU HAVE ONE) of too many unread books, it will come alive and eat you. Or bury you. Or whatever punishment it sees fit. They can get pretty creative.
2) One of those 1,000,000,000 unread books is potentially your next god-tier, shrine worthy favourite book ever, which you will definitely stake your entire identity on.
THOSE ARE THE RULES! I DON’T MAKE ‘EM!
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme by That Artsy Reader Girl in which readers come together each week to scream about either their favourite books or their TBRs (that’s basically what this is… don’t try and tell me otherwise!)
This weeks topic is: “Books I Wish I Had Read As a Child”
But if I did that prompt the whole list will just be me crying about not having read Percy Jackson when I was still a YOUTH! IT WAS RIGHT THERE! WhY oH wHY dIdN’t I rEaD tHeM?!?
(and I still haven’t, I’M SORRY!)
Here is a list of books I took way too long to read (classic me move) BUT I’VE READ THEM NOW!
All book covers are linked to their respective Goodreads pages (and all sequels will take you to the first book to avoid spoilers), clicking on them will take you there so you can check them out too! (don’t be like me… DON’T WAIT CENTURIES TO READ THEM! DO NOT!)
The Raven Cycle (a.k.a. The Book Series I Have Staked My Entire Identity On – and I regret nothing, I’m living my best life #sobbingfortheGangseyeveryday)
The Illuminae Files (a.k.a. The Trilogy That Makes Me Want To Read More Sci-Fi [but I just keep rereading this one])
An Enchantment of Ravens (a.k.a. The Book I Yearned For The Second I Heard About It, But Took A Year To Read)
Letters to the Lost & More Than We Can Tell (a.k.a. THIS WAS THE BEST CONTEMPORARY BINGE EVER! WHY DID I GET SO ANXIOUS ABOUT READING CONTEMP FOR THE FIRST TIME??)

(I really love the US covers for this series! I love the UK ones but gosh dangit, these ones are so magical!😍)
Penryn and the End of Days (a.k.a. Angels are cool, most of them are bad, Rafe is a precious boi, and Penryn is glad [that she scraped that boy of the streets and took his cool sword])
Starry Eyes (a.k.a. The Book That Made Me Wish I Could Go Camping Somewhere Where There Are Waterfalls And A Large Possibility Of A Heart Warming Romance)
Black Bird of the Gallows (a.k.a. The Book I Dived Into Because I Didn’t Feel Like Reading Fantasy or Contemporary And Figured A Paranormal Read Was A Good Idea And BOY WAS IT A GREAT IDEA!)
