Top Ten TBR OGs: Books on my TBR since 2016

Top Ten TBR OGs

For freebie week, here are ten books which have been on my TBR since I started blogging back in 2016. Maybe I’ll get to them someday. Shame me all you want.

Pride and Prejudice // Jane Austen

Scythe // Neal Shusterman

Caraval // Stephanie Garber – I’ve read the companion, Once Upon a Broken Heart, but I still want to read the original.

The Architect of Song // A.G. Howard – I’ve enjoyed Howard’s retellings, and her writing is beautiful, so why haven’t I tried this (right up my alley) story?

The Alchemists of Loom // Elise Kova

This Savage Song // V.E. Schwab

The Golem and the Jinni // Helene Wecker – I started this one, but wasn’t in the right mood and just never got back to it. With a sequel on the way, I should try again.

North and South // Elizabeth Gaskell

A Great and Terrible Beauty // Libba Bray

An Accident of Stars // Foz Meadows

  1. I’m sort of jealous that you get to read some of my favorites for the first time! Pride and Prejudice and North and South are all time favorites.

    I want to reread A Great and Terrible Beauty but I’m nervous about it because I don’t know if it’ll live up to my memory of it. A friend of mine did reread it recently and said it holds up pretty well though.

    I really liked The Golem and the Jinni too. I want to read the sequel ASAP.

    Here’s my list: https://franlaniado.wordpress.com/2022/04/05/top-ten-tuesday-books-with-older-protagonists/

    1. I think my problem with Pride and Prejudice and North and South is that I’ve seen the adaptions so many times, I end up deciding to use the time to read something brand new?

      1. I definitely understand that! I read P&P after seeing the adaptation and N&S before. I do sort of wish that I’d come to P&P “fresh” because in my head, the characters looked and sounded like the actors as I read. But they’re both beautifully written novels, so they’re definitely worth reading on their own.
