Hello again! Long time, no Top Ten Tuesday. So I thought I would remedy that today! Plus this week’s prompt really called to me because I am The Big Mood Reader Procrastinator. Anyways, onward with the words!
These aren’t ranked in any particularly order. They’re all just books I’ve been terribly procrastinating actually picking up, whether I’ve bought them or my library loan has attempted to come through.
1. Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir
I mean, necromancers? Swords?? Weird magical world-building?! And it’s queer?!?! Yeah, it’s really a wonder I haven’t managed to read this yet! I recently *hopefully* remedied that by picking up the audiobook from libro.fm, so now IT’S RIGHT THERE.
2. Circe by Madeline Miller
I am so easily bought by anything even remotely adjacent to Greek mythology (Thank you Rick!) that this was such an ease sell. I was also totally won over by the UK cover, so now it’s just waiting for me…
3. Time of Our Lives by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka
This is the Wibbroka book!! That broke!! My streak!! I just…lost pace with all their releases after that. So my brain is like, to get back on track you must read *this* one to repair the bridge.
4. A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews
I somehow read Cait’s sophomore novel before her debut? I own both too. *sigh* So I guess the plan now is to read ATPN before she releases any more books.
5. All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater
A Maggie Stiefvater book I missed! And Tree raved about this one too. I really should not be surprised at myself.
6. Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake (& Five Dark Fates)
I think in the anticipation/waiting of its release, something inside of me just kneeled over and was like “Let the characters live in peace!! Not two more books of torture!!” But yeah, I’m going to eventually need to know what terrible fate awaits them all.
7. Muse of Nightmare by Laini Taylor
8. Primer by Jennifer Muro
I follow Gretel Lusky on most of her online accounts, so when she mentioned working on this graphic novel, I, of course, had to pick it up. But the physical copy is so cute and nice and I absolutely don’t want to mess it up while reading, so I guess I’ve been procrastinating instead.
9. Hands Down by Mariana Zapata
Mariana spoils us with so many surprise(-ish) releases, my TBR just can’t keep up. Besides that, her books are loooong and I prefer to listen to them via audiobook (which take way longer to release when self-publishing), so I’m here for the long haul.
10. The Boneless Mercies by April Genuvieve Tucholke
This has honestly been on my TBR, and my copy on my shelf, for so long that I have no reasonable excuse as to why I have not read it yet. And Oh look, we’re at the end of the post now. *flees*
Thanks for reading! I blame the entire contents of this post on my Mood Reader Brain. What books have you been putting off reading?
