Looking back at my TBR-posts

The topic of this Top Ten Tuesday is backlist books. This weekly meme was created by The Broke and the Bookish, and now managed by That Artsy Reader Girl. Just like every other blogger, I have a huge list of books I want to read! Now and then I also make posts about books I want to read during the coming year. Although I usually do read a part of these books, I tend to forget some. This week seems like a good moment to look back at my TBR-posts from the last years.

In 2016 these five books were on top of my TBR-pile:

During that year I read Americanah and Gone with the Wind. In 2017 I also read Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. This year I finally read 1984.

I still haven’t read The Paper Magician. This book is about Ceony, who just graduated from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined. She becomes a paper magician who is able to animate paper creatures and bring stories to life. It still sounds like a book I want to read!

In 2017 I wanted to read these books:

During 2017 I read Gemina, Strange the Dreamer and Every Heart a Doorway. Three books I really loved! This year I also read Cress.

I haven’t read A Darker Shade of Magic. I feel like I am the only one! There was/is quite a hype about the trilogy. For people who missed it, this story is about Kell, one of the last magicians with the ability to travel between different versions of London. I don’t know why I haven’t read this book yet, but I still want to.

At the start of 2018, I was looking forward to these books:

By now I read four out of the five books from this list. Most of them became new favourites! The only book I haven’t read yet, is The Girl from Everywhere. This story is about Nix and her father. They live on a time travelling pirate ship and use maps to navigate through time and space. This is a book I still hope to read this year.

Books I inteded to read for the Memoir Reading Challenge 2018:

Sadly enough I only read one book for this challenge… I read Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. I probably won’t be reading the other four books in 2018, but also won’t forget about them. I actually did start with Paula, but wasnt’ really in the mood to continue the book.

I am clearly more a mood-reader. However, I also like to plan out my reads as long as the plan isn’t too specific. Tell me in the comments: Do you rather read by mood or by plan?

  1. Oh this is such a good idea for a post! I bet that, if I looked back to my TBR and the books I really wanted to read each year and the ones I really read, there would be such a huge gap haha 🙂 there are too many books and too little time. I hope you’ll read A Darker Shade of Magic someday, it also took me a little bit to get around to it, but I ended up loving it very, very much 😀
