TTT- You've Been On My TBR For How Long?

The top 10 weekly meme used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but starting this week, they are handing over the reins to ThatArtsyReaderGirl who can be found HERE.  Each week she will focus on lists which cover various topics related to books and reading. 

This week we are sharing books that have been on our TBR's for the longest.  In order to protect the innocent (who am I kidding, I'm protecting myself!), I am not sharing exactly HOW long (and in some cases I don't even know).  Just know that it's been a LONG time.








(Don't kill me Stormi!)

I hope to incorporate this into my Swords & Stars Challenge this year.

Admit it, I got you guys with this one right?

Nope, haven't watched the movie either - gotta prepare myself mentally for both.


I have to be truthful, I got scared by the "for fans of Gone Girl" comparison.  What if I wasn't a fan?  Should I even try?


I do remember I bought this book for $1.00.



So now wasn't that fun?  Or depressing depending on how you look at it.  Have you read any of these?  I just can't wait to see what made it to everyone else's lists this week.

(As always, click on the cover if you want more info)

  2. I haven't read any of these I'm afraid so I can't offer thoughts on what is good! I've heard good things about A Dog's Purpose though. I think I'm too emotional to read these dog books!

  4. I've read Luckiest Girl Alive and it shares an unreliable narrator with Gone Girl. But that's the biggest similarity.

    For this reader, I enjoyed Gone Girl more.

    1. Uh oh. That doesn't sound positive for me. Even though they are different, if you liked Gone Girl more, then I'm worried.

  5. I haven't been able to convince myself to pick up any of the over-hyped thrillers, so Gone Girl, Luckiest Girl Alive and The Girl on the Train should have all been on my list!

    1. The only one I've read is Gone Girl. I watched the movie for Girl on the Train and didn't like it so I kind of scraped the book.

  12. OMG that Esther the Pig book! I can't even! A Dog's Purpose is hard to read at times but for the most part it is happy. The second book is worse. I hope you get to some of these books this year.

    1. I'll keep that in mind. I also own the second one too!

  13. I've read the Esther book! I can't even imagine life with a pig, but I ended up really loving the story and checking out the Facebook page.

    1. I didn't know about the Facebook page. Have to check it out.

  14. I actually liked The Luckiest Girl Alive. It was dark and twisted, and like a good train wreck, I couldn't look away. A Dog's Purpose looks excellent. I know the movie commercial made me cry, so I can only imagine the book would yield even more feels.

    1. Every once in a while we need a train wreck huh? And yes, the movie ad made me tear up too!

  15. I'm surprised you haven't read A Dog's Purpose, you've read like every other dog book there is! You definitely have to prepare yourself mentally for the book though, I cried so much.

  18. I can't explain why but I am completely entranced by the cover for The Love Curse of the Rumbaughs. Like what is that based on in the book? How does that all come together? :)

    1. Do you have two comments from me somehow? I swear, I saw Esther yesterday and commented about her?

      Delete
    2. I think the posted landed somewhere else because I remember reading it (I think). I will try to pick up the Rumbaugh book soon so I can answer some of your questions!

  21. I haven't read A Dog's Purpose either! I keep meaning to! So many good books on your list! I love them. But, still, it's so hard to get to them all. I haven't seen Esther the Wonder Pig. I need this in my life!

  24. I've had Wax on my TBR for ages as well. I borrowed it from a friend and it's sat on my shelf for so long. OOPS. I also have A Dog's Purpose sitting on my shelf. My sons would like me to hurry up and read it so they can have it back. :P I hope you love all of these when you do get to them!

    1. Oh, and I forgot to say that I did watch the movie for A Dog's Purpose. I cried about three times during it. I could not hold myself together. Prepare yourself with kleenex before you watch Barb!!

  26. hahahaa If it makes you feel better, I've only read one of these on your list. But I can highly recommend it! (Jack Sparks -- so good.)
