Top Ten Tuesday: Books From My Past Seasonal TBR Posts I Still Haven’t Read


Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Drawing of a shadow of a large hand pointing accusingly at a man wearing a suit who is cowering in embarrassment. This stock photo made me giggle. Don’t take it too seriously.

Posts that ask us to look back at our seasonal TBR posts and talk about which books from them we haven’t read always make me feel like I’m back in school and being graded by the teacher or have just been called into the boss’ office for a stern talking-to.

I am so glad that Jana does not actually care how many or how few books from past seasonal TBR posts we’ve read.

Here are some books I’ve talked about in those previous posts that I still need to read.

 

Life Ceremony: Stories  by Sayaka Murata book cover. Image on cover shows a drawing of Japanese food in a black bowl.

Why I Haven’t Read It Yet: It’s still something I want to read. I simply need to find the time to do so.

 

The Book Eaters by Sunyi Dean book cover. Image on cover shows cutouts of a mother and child from the pages of a book. These silhouettes are walking up to a building made from the page of a print book and looking at a lit window in it as the mom points at it.

Why I Haven’t Read It Yet: The cover looks a little scarier to me every time I look at it again. I’m intrigued by the idea of people eating books (and finding different flavours associated with different genres), but I’m not ready for anything too frightening at the moment.

 

Girlhood by Melissa Febos book cover. The only decoration on this cover is the title and author repeated over and over again with each repetition missing a little more of the words.

Why I Haven’t Read It Yet: I’m not in the right headspace to read it right now.

 

 

Cursed Bunny  by Bora Chung book cover. Image on cover is a drawing of an alert purple hare.

Why I Haven’t Read It Yet: Honestly, I think I was more interested in the cover than the story itself. Isn’t this a compelling cover?

 

 

Cat Problems  by Jory John book cover. Image on cover is of a stressed-out cat sitting in a cardboard box.

Why I Haven’t Read It Yet: The Toronto Public Library hasn’t ordered copies of it yet.

 

Living Beyond Borders: Stories About Growing Up Mexican in America by Margarita Longoria book cover. Image on cover is a drawing of a man with a butterfly on his shoulder walking into a Mexican village.

Patience & Esther by SW Searle book cover. Image on cover is of two Edwardian women kissing romantically.

Why I Haven’t Read It Yet: The Toronto Public Library hasn’t ordered a copy yet. I did send them an official request to do so, though! We’ll see if they listen to me.

  1. Some of these definitely interest me, especially Book Eaters. I agree, Cursed Bunny’s cover definitely attracted me. I hope you get a chance to read the ones that really call to you, soon.

  2. The Book Eaters is a very recent addition to my TBR after I saw someone mention that it’s a contender for favourite of the year! I can’t wait to read it! I hope you enjoy all of these whenever you get around to them, Lydia 😉

  3. Cat Problems is the story of my life. LOL Also, I need to pick up Living Beyond Borders. Where I’m at in the US, we have a huge Hispanic population and I think it might do me some good.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  4. Availability at the library is certainly a good excuse not to have read a book. But I don’t think we need excuses for not reading nor for reading.

    Thanks for your visit to my blog. Have a lovely day.

  5. Patience and Esther, as well as The Book Eaters, both look interesting! I can see what you mean by the cover though for The Book Eaters haha

    • I hope they buy them someday!

      There was a book I requested several years ago that my library finally bought last year. So don’t lose hope. 🙂

  6. There are some fantastic covers on this list, even if I don’t know much about the books. Living Beyond Borders sounds like a book I’d like – I love books that tell the stories of immigrants. Happy Top Ten Tuesday!

  7. Aww, I feel sad that my prompt suggestion has made so many bloggers feel bad. That’s not what I intended at all. I just like to look back to refresh my mind on what I haven’t read and what I still want to read. Don’t take those TBRs too seriously. 🙂 Happy reading!

  8. Thank goodness Jana’s only goal is book conversation and fun! I agree. 🙂 Hope you enjoy all of these when you read them, Lydia. Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland on this week – apologies, as usual, it took me this long to visit here.
