10. Queen’s of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton
This is a fairly new title to collect dust on the procrastination shelf but I was so excited for it! What am I waiting for. I recently posted a post on Instagram and asked which of the titles in the photo do my followers think I’ve read and 90% of them thought I had already read Queen’s of Innis Lear. If that isn’t embarrasing I don’t know what is. Whoops..
9. The Fifth Season by NK Jemisin
This book has been on my TBR since 2015 but not physically on my shelf until 2 years ago when I purchased it and never sat down and read it! Many fantasy fans have recommended this one to me and I finally grabbed a copy. Now I just need to read it already.
8. The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
So I read The Name of the Wind probably 12 years ago.. maybe longer ago and it’s one of my favourite titles. Then I read the third book when it came out but I never read The Angel’s Game, the second book. How does this even make sense! It doesn’t. I need to read it. No excuse for this one.
7. The Assassin’s Apprentice by Robb Hobb
I call myself a fantasy genre lover and I haven’t read RObb yet? What…? I don’t know you guys. This one has been on my TBR since.. years and years ago I can’t even remember. I finally grabbed a copy this month so I will get to it soon hopefully.
6. Illona Andrews everything
Welp. I love me a good paranormal fantasy and I still haven’t read the Magic series by Andrews. I have the ebook on my kindle waiting and waiting for me to read it.
5. Reaper At The Gates by Sabaa Tahir
I loved book 1 and 2! I was so impressed by Tahir’s writing and plot lines. And then came the dreaded cover change halfway through the series. I am all for representation but it’s frustrating when I own the first 2 and then the 3rd doesn’t match. I know it’s kind of ridiculous but us book people are particular! So I will have to acquire this one on the ebook and then unahul the first two. #bookwormproblems
4. Goldfinch by Donna Tart
I’ve been extremely hesitant to pick this one up because I was disappointed by A Secret History (another title that collected that good ol’ procrastination dust until recently). I just couldn’t enjoy a book I found incredibly boring. So I haven’t been itching to read The Goldfinch yet.
3. Game of Thrones by George RR Martin (the rest of the series)
I have read book 1! I started reading these back in… 2010 when I won the boxset at Chapters Indigo when I was working there. It was a Christmas thing. I rememeber winning the first 5 books and thought well now I need to read these! After reading book 1 I started to watch the show shortly after and that was it. I never did continue the series even though I really should. Sigh…maybe someday.
2. The Girl of Fire & Thorns by Rae Carson
This book was gifted to me by the lovely BluestockingBookshelf and I have yet to get to it. Gah! It’s terrible, it’s been about 3 years now. I’ve been told I will love this book because of my YA fantasy tastes and yet here we are. I promise Jennifer I will get to it.
1. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
This one is the most embarrasing. I have had this book on my shelf since 2008. Groans. I was all amped to read it in my angsty teenage years and then i just NEVER GOT TO IT. Oh man. I will hide in shame now until I read it.
What are some of your procrastination titles? Have you read any of these you can push me to get to sooner? Let me know!
