Top 5 Tuesday

Top Five Tuesday: Books I Haven’t Read Yet

Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, but now it is hosted by Meeghan at Meeghan Reads. Todays topic is books I haven’t read yet. I have so many books on my shelves right now that I had hoped or expected to get to earlier on this year, however I went into a many month long reading slump. This meant that I never got to all of these wonderful books. I’m not sure if I will get to them this year now. So much of my time is already being occupied by NaNoWriMo and if the lcokdown lifts at the beginning of December, I will be very busy at work – way too busy to read all of these books.

Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender

Starting this off with one that I am really excited about. Ever since I found out about this book, it has been high up on my TBR. It does however keep being sidelined, because I want to finish ones that I have already started but pushed to one side. I also would like to read this one in physical form, rather than listen to the audiobook, which is what I have been doing recently for contemporary novels. Realistically, I probably won’t get to this one until early next year, but when I do, I know I am going to enjoy it!

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

This duology is adored by so many, and I still can’t believe I haven’t gotten to it. I got the two books a few years ago now, but if I’m honest, since getting them I haven’t really been in a huge fantasy mood. I am hoping this changes soon because it is one that I would love to get to. I also can see this being one that I would binge read very quickly.

The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo

This last week in particular, I have been seeing this book everywhere so I think it is time that I read this one. I am hoping that I will be able to include it on my November wrap up, but we shall see…

Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Another favourite of bookstagram. I feel like even a year and a half after its release, I am still seeing this one all over the place. It’s as if no one ever stopped talking about it. Nevertheless, I still have no gotten to it, but I have it ready to go when I do decide to read it.

The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant

This one was an impulse buy when I went back into a bookstore for the first time after the first lockdown earlier on in the year. It is pitched as Les Miserables meeting Six of Crows – Les Miserables being a musical that I have been meaning to see and Six of Crows the duology I’ve been meaning to read. Going well. Regardless, I’ve been in a historical fiction mood recently, so I might actually get to this one quite soon.

  1. I have a long TBR list- most of which I already have.

    Ones I didn’t get to (as of now):

    1. A Christmas Carol
    2. A Christmas Treasury- consists of classic short poems and short stories
    3. Nevermoor Series
    4. Hard Times
    5. Gulliver’s Travels
    6. Kidnapped

    I am actually kind of nervous when it comes to retellings- read Spinning Silver this year, which is a Rumplestikskin retelling. It was a completely different take- original characters, original world. It doesn’t fully feel like a retelling at all.

    1. A Christmas Carol and Gulliver’s Travels are great!
      I enjoy retellings, I love seeing other people’s take on classic characters.


      1. A Christmas Carol is my favorite Dickens story. I grew up on the George C. Scott movie, which became a family tradition to watch over the Holidays.

        I read Gulliver’s Travels in high school- want now read the entire book.

        I actually not fully aware of many retellings- if you like retelling, I think I will recommend Spinning Silver

  2. I’ve been meaning to try out Six of Crows, too. A friend of mine recommended me to read it. It’s definitely outside the usual genre of mystery/thriller I usually (aka exclusively) read, so I think it’ll be cool to check it out and see what I think about it!
