Top Ten Tuesday! Books I STILL Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each week a new theme is suggested for bloggers to participate in. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want. Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.

Today’s Top 20: Books From My Past Seasonal TBR Posts I STILL Haven’t Read 

I usually just post ARCs on my Seasonal TBR lists, and I usually get to all my ARCs, so I went through my TBR list and found these books that I really, really, really want to read soon.

I like that this is also a nice list for me to have to come back to when I have some time to read a book that isn’t an ARC.

1. The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot. They might be out there… but I haven’t seen one bad review of this book.

2. The Secret of Snow by Viola Shipman. I’ve wanted to read this since it came out.

3. Recipe for Persuasion by Sonali Dev. I’ve read the first and 4th books in this series, and I want to read them all.

4. The Jane Austen Socitety by Natale Jenner. I read Bloomsbury Girls, and it has some characters from this book in it, so it made me want to read this.

5. The Duke and I by Julia Quinn. I am loving the Netflix Bridgerton series, but I want to read the books too.

6. November 9 by Colleen Hoover. I’ve read many of her books, but not this one. It sure looks good.

7. One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’ve read many of her books, but not this one, and it looks good!

8. The Wedding Date by Jasmine Guillory. I recently read By the Book by Jasmine Guillory, and now I want to read her backlist, starting with her Wedding Date series.

9. The Invisible Husband of Frick Island by Collen Oakley. I saw so many positive reviews that I really want to read it soon.

10. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows. I watched the Netflix movie a while ago and really enjoyed it, but I thought that the book would be better.

Do you have books from previous lists that you haven’t read yet? Comment below!

  1. I added The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot to Goodreads! 😊

    I’ve had the Potato Peel Pie Society book on my TBR forever. 😯 I own the ebook, so there is really no excuse. 😛

  2. Guernsey is one of my absolute favorites! I listened to the audio and absolutely loved it. It’s one of the few books I would just sit and listen to vs doing other stuff while listening to a book. I enjoyed The Duke and I but my favorite is The Viscount Who Loved Me which I think is the second season of the show but from the summary of the show I read I don’t think I would have liked the show nearly as much as the book.

  3. The setting for The Invisible Husband of Frick Island was nice, but the story was underwhelming. I had hope to love it. Wasn’t a fan of The Wedding Date either. There was such a spotlight on the heroine’s insecurities that it was distracting. Loved The Jane Austen Society, though!

  4. Oh I love your twist! Especially choosing books that aren’t ARCs. The cover on The Secret of Snow is gorgeous! I have mixed reactions with Hoover’s novels, but so far November 9 is my least favorite. I’m in the minority, though. On the other hand, One True Loves has been one of my favorite TJR novels, and I tend to have mixed reactions with hers, as well. I hope you enjoy all of these when you get to them. 🙂

  5. I have waaaayyyy to many to list here, Wendy. So many I want to read, but I need to quit requesting ARCs so I can get to my own list. It’s a sickness, lol.

  6. These all look so good. I have so many on my backlist. It’s embarrassing. Even last books in a series – how have I not read those? Other than the obvious reason, of course.

  7. These all look good. I have The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society on my bookshelf. I bought it when my book club considered reading it (and I wanted free shipping on another book I was purchasing). It hasn’t made the cut yet, but I know I will read it some day on my own. The Jane Austen Society also sounds interesting.

    • Thank you, Linda. I am looking forward to getting around to The Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peel Pie Society soon.

  8. Great list, Wendy. The book was SO much better than the movie for Guernsey! (Of course, I thought that because I read the book first, so you might think differently!) Have a great week!

  9. OMG. I love your title, lol. It made me chuckle. I still haven’t read Bridgerton or the Potato whatever the title is Society. They’ve both been on my TBR for a while now. I hope we both enjoy them when we finally read them. 😀

  10. I have read a few of these and a few are also on my TBR. Guernsey is one of my all time favorite reads! I’m sure you will love it. The one hundred years of Leni and Margot is also lovely. Very well written. And Bridgerton is so much fun!!!

    Frick Island is on my TBR and Kindle, just need to get to it….

  11. The Secret of Snow, November 9, and The Potato Peel Society were all awesome reads for me Wendy. Happy reading!!📚🤗💕

  12. Jenny+McClinton

    I’ve got Lenni & Margot still to read too, and I’m the same I haven’t heard any bad reviews 😊 Great list 💕

  13. One True Loves was the first I ever read from Taylor Jenkins Reid and it really started my love for her story telling. I had high hopes for The Invisible Husband of Frick Island but sadly it did not work for me. I was mostly bored.

  14. So many good books on your list! It’s hard keeping up with all the books you want to read, isn’t it? I know my own TBR list is constantly growing. Happy reading all of these! 😀

    • Oh wow, Sonali Dev is one of my favorite authors. I’ve read many of Colleen Hoover’s books, but I want to read all of them!

  15. I could go back several years ago to published TBR lists and find lots that I haven’t read yet – it’s an ongoing battle isn’t it? I enjoy Taylor Jenkins Reid and that’s one I haven’t heard of, SO, on my list it goes. 🙂 Thanks for the visit Wendy – you’re the best!

    • Thank you, Terrie! And book blogging makes it so much worse as we find so many amazing books out there that I would have never found on my own.

  16. I absolutely loved One True Loves. TJR is such a phenomenal author. The Netflix adaptation of Guernsey was so good! I’ve heard the book isn’t quite as interesting, but maybe in the future, I’ll read it (I typically read books before watching adaptations, but I didn’t know it was an adaptation when I watched it haha). Great round-up here!

  17. What a fun post! I do have a number of books on my TBR list which have been on there a while. I am finally reading a series I have had on my bookshelf since 2020! I do try and go through my TBR shelf each season and prioritize and edit.

    • I meant to slow down on NetGalley so I could read more of my backlist, but that’s not working so well for me! Once I get home from my trip, I hope to be able to read more of my TBR.

  18. That’s nice theme to pick. I’ve had the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society sitting on my TBR for ages now; and lots of TJR to catch up with as well.

    You definitely have to read 100 years of Lenni and Margot. It is such a fantastic book.
