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 go through my Goodreads TBR pretty regularly so I don’t think there are any books on there that I don’t remember why I’ve added them! But it was really fun to read your post and see which books you had forgotten about and if you were still interested in them!

  3. 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.
