Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a book blog tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Today's topic is the Top Ten Books That Have Been on My TBR Since Before I Started Blogging. Now, I didn't have a Goodreads when I started blogging four years ago, so I didn't have a defined to-read list. Instead, today I'm going to share the Top Ten Books That Have Been On My Goodreads TBR the Longest, starting back in December of 2013, almost three years ago.
1) Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. This is a 1937 classic novel, a romance, written by an African American woman. I've been keeping an eye on the diversity issue for a while now!
2) The Pledge by Kimberly Derting. Derting is an author I've liked for a while; this book is a YA fantasy dystopian focusing on prestige languages.
3) The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe. This is an apocalyptic YA sci-fi about a virus outbreak, but it doesn't look like it's zombie-related, as I initially thought. Which is good, I suppose, because zombies is one of the few subject areas I often find myself struggling to enjoy (like historical fiction).
4) Slated by Teri Terry. This one is a YA sci-fi dystopian about memory wiping, which is a subject that seems to have had a weird uptick this past year or so. Have any of you noticed that?
5) Touched by Corrine Jackson. This book is a YA paranormal romance featuring healing powers.
6) The Waiting Sky by Lara Zielin. This is a YA contemporary with tornado chasers and alcoholism.
7) Life is But a Dream by Brian James. This one's a YA contemporary about schizophrenia.
8) Dark Eden by Patrick Carman. Carman's a pretty top-notch author, and when I was younger, i loved his Land of Elyon trilogy. This book's a YA horror about teens in treatment for various phobias, a subject I have some personal experience with.
9) Pivot Point by Kasie West. This one is a YA fantasy featuring prophetic gifts.
10) Shift by Kim Curran. This book is a YA sci-fi about a superhero-esque ability to undo past decisions.
What do you think? Have you read any of these books? What books have been on your TBR for a while? Thanks for reading, and I'll see you tomorrow!
