[Top Ten Tuesday] Books that have been in My TBR the Longest and I still haven't Read

Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl since January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Well, it's very explainable why I choose this topic for today's TTT. When I visit The Artsy Reader Girl, today's TTT is Top Ten Tuesday Turns 10! Option 1: pick a past TTT topic you've done and re-do/update it, and Option 2: pick a past TTT topic you wish you'd done, but didn't get a chance to do.

To be honest, I've got a blogging slumps because so many things happened to me. So, I will choose the second option for today's TTT. Therefore, I choose this topic, books that have been in my TBR the longest and I still haven't read. Most of the books will be a popular book that I really want to read, but I still haven't do it.

1. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - Ransom Riggs

Since the first time I saw the cover of this book, I feel very curious about the story. Moreover, after its movie released. It makes me more and more curious. I remember I've have the ebook for this book, but then I lost my phone, and it's the end of the story. 

Until now, I haven't read this book yet.

2. To All The Boys I've Loved Before - Jenny Han

Okaaay.. I admit that I have watched the movie. At first, I really want to read the novel first, then watch the movie. Unfortunately, that temptation is bigger. So, I watched it before reading the novel. I just know from my conversation with my friend, there are some different between the movie and the book--well, apparently it happened all the time for novel adaptation.

3. Little Women - Louisa May Alcott

I know that Little Women is a phenomenal work. I want to read this novel since high school. But, yeah, me being me. I could't concentrate when reading classic novel--I still remember I give up to read Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. At the end, this novel is one of the longest book in my TBR.

4. Eragon - Christopher Paolini

I have to admit that I ever try to read this book. But, as I remember back then, I am kind of in the middle of my high school activity that consume almost of my times. So, I've run out of my time to read this book in time--back then, I have to borrow this book from the library. After that, I don't have a chance to borrow again and until now, I haven't finished to read this book.

5. A Game of Thrones - George R.R. Martin

I want to read this book before I know about the series. I always love a fantasy book. So, it's very make sense if I want to read this book. Since I know that the story in the Game of Thrones will be a little bit disturbing, I think I just want to read the story, not watch the series. 

6. Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard

I don't know whether this book will be have the same vibe as Cinder or not, but I curious with the story that will be unfolded in this book. Moreover, the cover has captivated me since the first time I saw it. But, yeah, just like the others book, I haven't read it yet until now.

7. Harry Potter and International Relations - ed by Daniel H. Nexon and Iver B. Neumann

How if we can combine the magic word into academic? This book is the answer. I know about this book since in college and I really want to read it. Sadly, I haven't got a chance to read it. Even, I don't know where to find this book. As I remember, in my university library, this book is not available too. Sigh. I really want to know how these two things can be related. 

8. Jingga untuk Matahari - Esti Kinasih

This is one of my long awaited novel. I mean, I have followed the series since in middle school. I waited for this book for so long. At the end, this book is published when I was in college. Somehow, I have lost interest to read it. But, in some point, I would like to know the continuation of the whole series. Still, until now, after I've graduated, I haven't read this book yet.

9. 1984 - George Orwell

After I read Animal Farm, of course I curious with 1984. I want to know how George Orwell build his story that very phenomenal. But, maybe because I've limited English skill, I couldn't enjoyed this book that much. Therefore, I haven''t finished to read this book. I think, I only can read the first chapter. I should give it a try some day.

10. The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I've know this book for so long. To be honest, I interest to read this book because even though this a children book, you will get a lot of philosophical thought after reading it. I have added this book on my reader apps, but until now, I haven't finished this book. I forget about this book's existence until BTS--yeah, the biggest K-pop band in the world, held their FESTA Celebration. 

One of main theme from their celebration is about this book--well, some ARMY decipher all of the content regarding FESTA and it leads to The Little Prince. Moreover, when Suga held his weekly 06.13 Kkul FM Radio, he and Jungkook took this story for their segment. At the end, I remember that I haven't finished to read this book and it has been on my reading apps for a very long time. Smh. 

That's all for my today's TTT. I am very glad that I can share with you. And, maybe happy 10th years TTT! Thank you for always giving inspirations and place to share the bookish experience everywhere.
