Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week the theme is books you were excited to buy (possibly when they were newly released and/or you totally were going to read these as soon as you got your hands on them) and haven’t read yet.

So I scrolled back through the books on my ereader that I bought ages ago and are still there because I haven’t read them. Honestly this problem comes up the most with ebooks because I can get them instantly no matter what day or time it is.

Cart and Cwidder by Diana Wynne Jones and In the Night Garden by Catherynne M. Valente

When I bought these I was totally intending to do a sort of author bibliography challenge. I forgot I was going to do this.

Spellbook of the Lost and Found by Moïra Fowley-Doyle

I read The Accident Season with an online book club and it was my favorite of the ones that were chosen. I fully intended to read any books this author writes as they come out and that didn’t really happen.

The Broken Crown by Michelle West and I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn

I think I bought these in May of last year? Possibly the year before? They met requirements for readathons that normally happen in May.

The Lady’s Guide to Celestial Mechanics by Olivia Waite

This one was hyped by many fabulous people and I still haven’t gotten to it.

Minor Mage by T. Kingfisher was on my wishlist and it went on sale.

Turned by Morgan Rice

I wanted vampire books and this one was free at the time.

Bitter Spirits by Jenn Bennett

I had finished what Jenn Bennett had published in young adult so I went looking to see if there were other things they’d done. I found two adult series and got excited.

The Thief Who Pulled on Trouble’s Braids by Michael McClung

I think this was part of a self-published speculative fiction prize. I swear I watched a video where someone was one of the people choosing and this was on their short list.
