Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’ve Added to my TBR and Forgotten Why

Hello there, and happy Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl where there is a topic and you make a list that best fits that topic! This week’s topic is Books I’ve Added to my TBR and Forgotten Why. I have 187 books on my TBR, and here are some that I added, but don’t remember why.

all titles link to Goodreads

A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Kosseini

I didn’t remember anything about this book, but when I read through the synopsis, it sort of came back to me. Anyways, it looks like a really good book, and one that I would enjoy.

Fever 1973, by Laurie Halse Anderson

I remembered this book! Well, at least the title. Reading the synopsis, it seems sort of ironic considering that this book centers around an outbreak of plague, and well, covid-19 is happening now. However, it looks like an interesting book, and one that I will be keeping on my TBR!

Ghosts I Have Been, by Richard Peck

What? Why on earth would I have put this on my TBR? It does not look even remotely like the sort of book I would be interesting. The author, however, upon further inspection is Richard Peck, one of my favorite authors. So his books are immediately placed on my to-read list as I know that there will be witty jokes and hilarious characters no matter what the topic of the book. That said, I don’t know if I really would want to read this. I’ll put this on my maybe-TBR. (Wait. I have one of those? *goes to Goodreads* I do now!)

The Fixer, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Don’t remember this book at all! It looks interesting though, so it shall stay on my TBR! Really though, I don’t usually read thrillers, however this book looks fascinating! From the synopsis, it looks like it draws on a lot of different topics and themes, which seem fun and interesting to read about! Did I say it looks interesting? Anyways, moving on…

The Lucky Daughter by Mariama J. Lockington

I didn’t remember the title, but Mariama J. Lockington wrote For Black Girls Like Me, which is an amazing book that I highly recommend! Anyways, The Lucky Daughter looks like an incredible book, and I would love to read it!

So, I guess I’ll end this post here! I had ten books (well more than ten if I was to look through my entire TBR) but I don’t have a lot of time, so here are 5. This was actually a really interesting and fun post to do!

Are there any books that you added to your TBR but don’t remember why? Have you heard of any of the books I mentioned? Chat with me in the comments below!

  1. Ahh this is such a fun post! There are so many books on my TBR and I have absolutely no idea why they’re here ahah, I think it’s time I do a little spring cleaning there. I have The Fixer on my TBR, I am intrigued by this book as well! 🙂

  2. I have two of these on my TBR too. A Thousand Splendid Suns as it’s meant to be really good and the other book that I’ve read by the author was fantastic. And The Fixer although I have several books by the author on my list and don’t know which I’ll get to first. Ooh I did read one by her though and from what I remember enjoyed it.
