Top Ten Tuesday ★ 10

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to The Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

How it works: 

I assign each Tuesday a topic and then post my top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join me and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information. You’ll find the schedule of upcoming TTT topics below so you can plan ahead. I’ll post a Linky here on the blog each week so you can link up your post (if you want). If you don’t have a blog, post your picks in the comment section below! Have tons of fun talking books and getting to know your fellow bloggers!

NOTE: If a weekly topic is listed as a “freebie”, you are invited to come up with your own topic. Sometimes I will give your topic a theme, such as “love”, a season, or an upcoming holiday. That just means that you can come up with any topic you want that fits under that umbrella.

Ten Books on My TBR That I'm Avoiding && Why

I cannot believe that I am being judged by a book tag, y'all. But here it is, in black and white (or whatever your default font/background colours are.) *sigh* I have over 2000 books on my Goodreads TBR, not mentioning my Amazon "ooh, that sounds nice, but I'm broke, future buys" list. Onwards and upwards!

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I like the premise of Hunted but I'm so worried that it will fall short of my love of Beauty and the Beast and I'll not want to read Sherwood. I'm horrible with the fear of being let down. Just looking at the book, I get anxious and the panic starts to set in.

Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne

Rosemarked sounds interesting and I was (and am) in love with the story Blackburne presents but I'm always afraid of books that I fall in love with. What if the book doesn't live up to all of the excitement I've built up? How much disappoint can I take?

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

I've been hemming and hawing over this book since I was 16, that's half of my life. I want to read it but my librarian at the time said it was pretty bad. Now I own it but I'm still "Ms Ingram said that it wasn't very good, and we trust librarians!".

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
That's right, I still haven't read this. I caught a bit of the movie and I'm interested in the story but the C word is verboten in my household because it really likes my family. I actually have guilt just because my astrological sign is cancer, okay. We take the C word that seriously. It might sit on my shelf forever unread.

Reaver by Larissa Ione
I adore Larissa - to the point that I'm on first name basis with her. Back when Twitter was just a hatchling, I asked her so many questions about Demonica, y'all. And then all hell broke loose in my offline life and I had to stop buying books and I lost track of the series and I'm afraid that the series won't be as amazing to me as it was back then. 

People Like Us by Dana Mele
I keep hearing good and bad opinions on this one. It's like, can I already have read it so I can stop with the weebles on this one?

One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus
I honestly lost track of One of Us is Lying when I first started my blog and it was one of the books I was most looking forward to reading and reviewing. And now there's a sequel! I'm going to have to fix this issue.

A New Leash on Love by Debbie Burns
Shelter surrender stories, yeah. Auto tears. Lots of ugly crying. But I want to read this!

A Date with Darcy by Tiffany Schmidt
I'm afraid of being judged by this book, honestly.

Brighter than the Sun by Maya Banks
Like the Demonica series by Larissa Ione, I've been with the KGI series since the very beginning but when life got bad, I lost track of the series. I have caught up with my purchases of the books, I just haven't read them yet. I have to fix that. I need to fix that. I have to see if Rusty gets who I think she gets.

Okay, y'all. That's it for this Top Ten Tuesday and I hope to hear what some of y'all are avoiding in my comments!
I'm still working on putting together the funds for Manatee's tests and surgery because $1500 is yikes territory. And I'm just feeling really down about the whole situation.
That's it for today, readers. Until next time, have a happily ever after!
