If you’re a fellow bookworm then odds are you have a huge pile (or several shelves!) of books that you haven’t read yet. Below are 15 books that have been in my TBR pile for at least two years (some far longer!).
1) Bitterblue (Graceling Realm #3)
Until I started putting together this post, I legit thought I’d read Bitterblue. Isn’t that weird?? I’ve read Graceling and Fire, and have owned Bitterblue since it came out, but apparently I never read it??
I’ll definitely have to reread Graceling and Fire before starting Bitterblue, but I’m actually kind of scared now. What if I don’t love Graceling as much as I did the first time?
2) Eon: Dragoneye Reborn (Eon #1)
I bought Eon SO LONG AGO and the poor thing has been sitting on my shelf ever since. I’m not sure why I keep avoiding it. Maybe because people either seem to love it or be really disappointed by it…
3) The Eternity Cure (Blood of Eden #2)
The Eternity Cure is a funky one. I actually have an eARC of it that I never read. I think it’s because I’m really weird about vampires. I always think I don’t like reading about them, but if I can push myself to actually get around to reading one (like The Immortal Rules) then I usually enjoy it.
Have you finished this series? If so, how did the second and third books hold up compared to the first?
4) The Far Dawn (The Atlanteans #3)
I’m not 100% sure if I want to continue this series. The thing is, I LOVED The Lost Code, but was kind of let down by The Dark Shore (only 3 stars). So I’m just iffy about whether I want to bother reading The Far Dawn. If you’ve read this, let me know how you liked it!
5) Fractured (Slated #2)
Slated has an extremely cool concept—check it out if you haven’t seen it before! The main character’s memory and personality have been wiped blank because the government claim she was a terrorist. They wipe her slate clean to give her a second chance. But the thing is, I actually remember very little from Slated other than the overall plot. Maybe that’s been putting me off reading Fractured.
6) Glitch (Glitch #1)
Poor Glitch is a book I’ve had on my shelf for EONS but it’s almost like I never even consider picking it up. Have you read it? It’s about a community where humans are implanted with computer chips that wipe out any destructive emotions. This means there’s no pain or war, but it also means emotions are “filtered”. The main character starts glitching out and feeling her own emotions.
7) The Hammer of Thor (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #2)
I LOVED the first book in this series! I really want to reread it and then continue with the other two. I hope they live up to the first one!
8) The Lost Girl
The Lost Girl is one of the first books I ever bought after starting my blog in 2012. It makes me a little sad that I still haven’t gotten around to it. So many of my Goodreads friends loved this!
9) Poison Study (Poison Study #1)
This is another oldie; I think I bought it at the same time as The Lost Girl. Perhaps Poison Study is a little intimidating since it’s part of a six-book series.
10) Prodigy (Legend #2)
I KNOW, I KNOW! I haven’t finished Legend! Argh. I’m so disappointed in myself. It took me forever to read Legend in the first place, but when I finally did, I LOVED it! But this was one of those series that I just fell behind with. I’ll definitely need to reread Legend before the other two.
11) Remember Me (Find Me #2)
I actually feel really bad that I haven’t read Remember Me yet because I consulted with Romily Bernard on some of the computer/tech aspects as she was writing it! I definitely need to read this to see how it all turned out. Plus, I loved the first book.
12) Roma Victrix (Gladiatrix #2)
I first read Gladiatrix back in 2012 but I never finished the other two books in the series. I definitely recommend checking this out if you’re into Gladiators! I actually just recently bought the third book in anticipation of finally finishing this series.
13) The Serpent’s Shadow (Kane Chronicles #3)
Um, just like Bitterblue, I 100% thought I’d read The Serpent’s Shadow. I guess I just had it in my head that I’d read the whole Kane Chronicles, and it turns out I was wrong? This is so weird!
I remember being so excited about Struck when it first came out, but then I just never got around to it. It’s such a bummer when this happens! It’s a super neat concept: the main character is a lightning addict!
15) Zodiac (Zodiac #1)
Zodiac is kind of like Glitch in that it just sits on my shelf and I never even think about reading it. Poor book! It sounds like this one is an outer space story where there are “houses” based on zodiac signs. One of the houses that was exiled returns for revenge on the others.
