Top Ten Tuesday || Procrastination Shelf

Top Ten Tuesday posts are my favourite to read! A lot of bloggers out there have created their own prompts and you can definitely follow them but I am going to blaze my own path and do what I feel like. I find it easier for me that way. Without futher ado check out this week’s Top 10! I am focusing on my Procrastination Shelf because the gals from A Take From Two Cities inspired me with their post to share my own favourite classics!

We all have them, those books on your shelf you procrastinate for years to read. Why do we do this? They tend to be the favourites for me! For example, The Name of the Wind I had that book on my shelves for years. Proabably 10 years. Yep, 10 years I checked the print date. I finally read it last month and I LOVED IT. I couldn’t put it down. So I’m happy to say it’s no longer on the Procrastination Shelf but these sure are…

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!
