First and foremost, I want to tell you that I’m no big fan of TBRs. I always tend to change the book I’m going to read that depends on my mood. It only happens rarely when I stick to my TBR unless these are books that I need to review for the publishers. As like to music, I always tend to change my music taste, but my favorites will remain as favorites. And when I REALLY like something, I become a person who wants to insert these things that I like anywhere and everywhere.
Also, if you didn’t know. This feature is hosted by the lovely people over The Broke and the Bookish.
To start off, here are the ten books that I’m ashamed for not reading:
- See Me by Nicholas Sparks
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
- Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
- The Fate of Ten by Pittacus Lore
- 99 Days by Katie Cotugno
- The Heir by Kiera Cass
- The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
- Infinite in Between by Carolyn Mackler
- An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
- Chasing Forgiveness by Neal Shusterman
Some of these books I really planned to read for the year 2015, but some books just keep piling and stacking up my shelves. Now, I don’t know where to start. Like I’ve told you, I don’t really stay on my TBR list. These are only the 2015 releases, what if you knew what I planned to read on 2015 but was not released on 2015. It will definitely blow your mind. The number count of my unread books are gigantic, so it’s best to make it a mystery.
Now I’m going to explain to you why I haven’t read these books.
See Me is a book I’ve won from a giveaway, but couldn’t begin to read because I’m too intimidated by its size.
Six of Crows almost piqued my interest, but after the next few pages, I couldn’t read anymore. It’s not really boring, but a reading slump, maybe?
Carry On is just a recent haul for me, so I will definitely read it this year.
The Fate of Ten is in one of my most favorite series, Lorien Legacies. I couldn’t read it because I just received it for Christmas, and I still have other books to read.
99 Days is one of the books I really want to read. Due to the numbers of bad reviews of this one, I just couldn’t read it, but I will soon. I got this signed before when I met her.
The Heir is beautiful, no doubt. I haven’t begun reading The Selection yet, so here’s a 2015 release that I haven’t read too. Although I badly want to read this series because of its hype.
The Rest of Us Just Live Here is a book I started to read already, but somewhere along the line, I just couldn’t read anymore (mainly because there’s another book that captivated me that made me DNF this book. I will definitely pick this up again soon.)
Infinite in Between has a cover that I really like, but despite of being hefty, I wasn’t just in the mood for its contemporary story.
An Ember in the Ashes is one of the most fantasy books I regret not reading on 2015. Like Six of Crows, this book is one of my anticipated releases, but I don’t know why I can’t bring myself to pick this book up.
Chasing Forgiveness has been sitting on my shelves for too long, although I’ve picked it up, but haven’t opened it ever. Shame on me.
Thanks for reading, everyone! I hope you all have a great Tuesday.
