We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is Favorite Things to Eat/Drink While Reading and honestly, that really isn’t my thing. I almost always drink tea and I think it will be pretty boring if I just listed my ten favorite tea flavors haha. So I decided to go for last weeks topic and share my top ten Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding. Let’s get into it!
1.Strange the Dreamer – Laini Taylor
While I’m super interested in this book, I have told myself I could only read it once I finished the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. I still have to finish reading the last book and I don’t want to start Laini’s new duology before that’s done. You might think that’s a crazy reason haha, but it is true!
2. Catwoman – Sarah J. Maas
I love Sarah J. Maas, especially her Throne of Glass series. And I’m just scared that I won’t love this one. I read the Wonder Woman story by Leigh Bardugo, another favorite author of mine, and I was disappointed to be honest. So I really want to love Catwoman by Sarah J. Maas!
3. What If Its Us – Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera
I was super excited to get this one! But since then I have seen so many disappointing reviews and I’m simply scared to pick it up. I really like both authors and I can hardly believe I won’t love a book they wrote together. But it seems like a very possible scenario and I’m just avoiding it haha.
4. The Wise Man’s Fear – Patrick Rothfuss
I really enjoyed The Name of the Wind and immediately got the sequel. But when I realized people have been waiting on the finale of the trilogy forever I just couldn’t pick it up. It’s going to be so annoying to have to wait and wait and wait and I’d rather just not read book 2 just yet.
5. King’s Cage – Victoria Aveyard
I loved Red Queen but kinda hated Glass Sword. Since then I have been dreading King’s Cage. I already own War Storm as well and I would be so nice to read both books back to back. But I’m afraid I will have King’s Cage like I do Glass Sword. As long as I haven’t read it, there’s potential for it to be good haha.
6. A Reaper At The Gates – Sabaa Tahir
I’m not a 100% sure why I haven’t picked this one up yet. It’s probably at least three reasons combined. I don’t remember that much from the first two books so this might be a little hard to get into. It’s also going to be a while before the next book is released. And lastly, I have seen some negative reviews and I’m just so scared I won’t love it.
Almost all of what I remember from book 1 & 2 is that it’s basically about assassins nuns and that I loved it. But that all! So I’m scared to read this because I’ll probably be super confused at first. And It might take away from my experience.
8. The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
This is such a hyped and important read and I STILL haven’t read it. I’m just scared I will be completely broken by this book. It’s also super popular and I’m scared I won’t love it as much as everyone seems to do.
9. Buffy the Vampire Slayer season 8 vol. 1 – Joss Whedon
I have started watching all the Buffy episodes but I have to completely finish the tv show before I can actually read this one haha. But I came across it and decided to get it right away., because it’s pretty difficult to get your hands one!
10. The Caged Queen – Kristen Ciccarelli
I absolutely adored The Last Namsara and had been looking forward to the sequel. However, this sequel features a different main character and I’m just kinda bumped about that fact. I know it’s been almost a year since I got this one but I’m still not over it I guess haha.
These are 10 of the books on my TBR I’m avoiding and why that’s the case. With so many books on my TBR it can get a bit overwhelming and it might take years before I finally pick up a book. But hopefully I will pick them all up in the future!
