All The Books I Can Read

1 girl….2 many books!

Top 10 Tuesday November 6th

on November 6, 2018

Welcome back to another edition of Top 10 Tuesday! Originally created by The Broke & the Bookish, Top 10 Tuesday now resides with Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. There’s a different bookish themed topic each week and today we are talking…..

Top 10 Backlist Titles I’d Like To Read

  1. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. I read To The Bright Edge of the World, Ivey’s novel after Snow Child and absolutely loved it. And I know that The Snow Child would be right up my alley. Both Ivey’s books are set in Alaska and it’s one of my absolute favourite settings in books/tv shows/movies/anything. And I even own it, so there’s really no excuse for not having read it yet! I just….haven’t.
  2. The Dark Swan Series by Richelle Mead. I’ve read the Vampire Academy series and loved it. I didn’t mind Bloodlines but I didn’t love it as much as VA. I also read and adored the Georgia Kincaid succubus series and loved that too. I’ve heard good things about this particular series’ of Mead’s but I’ve never gotten around to it. One day!
  3. Amie Kaufman’s Backlist. I’ve read Amie’s books that she’s written with Jay Kristoff (The Illuminae Files) but I haven’t read anything she’s written alone or with Megan Spooner. I do own the first book in the Starbound series though and I am very keen to try more of her work.
  4. The Will Trent Series by Karin Slaughter. I’ve been hearing good things about this for years but until this year I’d never read a Karin Slaughter book. The one I read, which I was sent for review, was a stand-alone. I do have the first in the Will Trent series on iBooks but I don’t want to start reading until I have access to them all.
  5. Connie Willis Books. I’ve read 2 Connie Willis books – Crosstalk and Bellwether and I loved them both. I really want to read the Oxford Time Travel series and the All Clear series.
  6. Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. I really loved Little Fires Everywhere and I actually picked up a copy of Everything I Never Told You in an iBooks sale. I honestly don’t know how I’m ever going to actually find the time to read all the books I want to in my lifetime….but I’m going to try.
  7. V.E./Victoria Schwab’s Backlist. I’ve only read one of her books but it was so interesting and I really enjoyed it. She’s an author that I definitely hear so many good things about concerning a couple of her series’. I need to find a way to fit in the other books of hers that I need to read.
  8. The Witches Of Eileanan Series by Kate Forsyth. I’ve read a lot of Kate Forsyth’s more recent books, historical fiction with amazing retellings but I haven’t read a lot of her more older stuff. The first book in this series came out in 1997 and I think there’s about 6 books. Witches, dragons, magic. Sounds fun! And I love the way she writes, there’s always a love story and such attention to detail.
  9. Maria V. Snyder BooksOkay remember how like 6 or so years ago, Maria V Snyder was kind of everywhere in YA releases? I actually even went to see her at an event here at my (then) smallish local suburban Melbourne library. I have literally a pile of books by her that head into double figures and I have actually not read any of them. A lot of people rec the Poison Study series to me in particular.
  10. Traci Harding Books. Last year a publisher sent me a Traci Harding book for review. I didn’t know anything about her, hadn’t ever read any of her books. I absolutely loved the one I was sent and when I looked her up, I discovered that she has a pretty huge backlist. I actually have another book by her for review that’s out in December although it’s connected to a series I’ve never read……it’s a prequel though, so maybe I could start with this and then actually go into that series.

All lists like this do is further reinforce that I just have so many books that I want to read and so little time to fit them all in. I can barely keep up with the books I have for each month, let alone going back and fitting in ones from years ago! I am trying to make a more conscious effort to ‘go retro’ – especially over the summer break here, where I hope to read mostly books that are backlist or have been on my shelves for a long time.

    I wouldn’t mind reading more Amie Kaufman either. And I just saw another blogger talking about the Snow Child! They quite liked it. I do kinda want to read Richelle Mead at some point too.

  2. ChrissiReads says:

    I love The Snow Child. It’s such a good book!

  3. Great list! Schwab is soooo talented, it blows my mind. I’ve read 5 of her books now, I think, and I gave all of them 5 stars each, but I really want to read the rest of her work, too!

    I focused on backlist ARCs in my T10T this week if you want to check it out! ♥

    • That’s a pretty big rec for Schwab, I’m going to have to really make sure I try to fit some in soon. I have the 2nd in the Shades of Magic series to read, but it’s been so long I feel I need to reread the first one.

  4. I’d like to read some of Victoria Schwab’s books as well. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I even bought a couple of her books when they were on sale!

  5. Victoria Schwab is on a ton of lists – I’ve never read her, yet!

    I really want to read Amie Kaufman’s books! I loveeed Illuminae and Gemina, so I want to try to read both her and Jay Kristoff’s books. *_* I also want to read all V.E. Schwab’s books. I’ve read The Archived, This Savage Song and A Darker Shade of Magic – she’s such a brilliant author!

    My TTT post!

  7. I’ve been wanting to read Karin Slaughter for years now, so I fully support that line item. Hahaha.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  8. The Snow Child is on my TBR too. It has been recommended to me many times but I haven’t picked it yet somehow. I too want to read V.E. Schwab books. I have heard amazing things about them.

    My TTT

    I’ve only read the first Starbound book and have the other two on my TBR for ages. Same for VE Schwab’s books, I’ve only read A Darker Shade of Magic and really want to read the rest of her books.

    • That’s the same V.E. Schwab book that I’ve read. I own the second one, but I feel as though I should’ve read it straight after the first. It’s been so long I’ll probably have to read A Darker Shade of Magic again before picking up the rest of the series.

    I agree with you about reading more Schwab, and Willis is also on my list. I’ve read To Say Nothing of the Dog which was a lot of fun. I highly recommend Everything I Never Told You. Enjoy your backlist books!

  11. Maggie says:

    Yes to Amie Kaufman’s books! I’ve got These Broken Stars and seriously need to read it soon! Happy reading!
