Top Ten Tuesday #28

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
Books from My Spring 2022 TBR I Still Haven’t Read

This week’s prompt is hard for me because I’m a mood reader and the only seasonal TBRs I’ve made are for spring and summer 2022. We’re still in the middle of summer so I can’t use that list and, honestly, spring wasn’t very long ago. However, I’ve managed to read four books from my spring TBR, which is amazing to me. Anyway, here are the ten six books from my spring 2022 TBR that I still haven’t read:

Technically, I’ve read the two Harry Potter books. They’re the last two I need to read to finish my latest reread of the series, though.

What about you? Which books from a previous seasonal TBR have you still not read? Do we have any in common?

I learned in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) that life is full of dialectics, or two opposing truths. In this case, the two opposing truths are: 1) I don’t agree with JKR’s stance regarding trans people, and 2) I still love Harry Potter.

      I’ll change my mind about reading a book too. Most of the above books are still ones I want to read. I just wasn’t in the mood to read them yet. 😀

    I don’t even make “real” TBRs because I’m a total mood reader. But I play along and make (cough – fake – cough) TBRs when TTT prompts call for them. LOL Sometimes I might actually read something from them! Haha. So I can understand how you had to choose, too. Hope you get to some of these soon! 🙂

      Lol. That’s pretty much what I do too. I make the lists so I can play along on TTT. And, I may read a few books from my lists here and there, but I don’t stress too much about not reading everything. 😀

      I’m really excited to read LADY MIDNIGHT at some point. I love Cassie’s books so much! 😀 That’s so fun that your partner’s rereading Harry Potter to your toddler. 😀

    I always feel pressured by lists so my goals are to finish my BC book and to read several other fun ones during the month. (usually mysteries or light lit)

      LOL. I just make the lists so I can join in the fun in participating in TTT. I don’t often follow through with any of my lists because of being a mood reader AND there are so many books. 😀

      I also consider every book I physically own as part of my TBR. I also consider all the books I want to read, which is over a thousand, as my whole TBR. I do enjoy making small seasonal TBRs even though I never follow through. 😀

    I’m a total mood reader too so I get not completing those TBRs 🙂 Honestly, I do love making a TBR, but I don’t mind not completing it that much because I think that picking up a book based on your mood usually makes for a better reading experience.

      I also have one perpetual TBR. I only make these seasonal lists so I can participate in TTT. Even though I know I won’t completely stick to these seasonal TBRs, I still enjoy making them. 😀

    I mood read too although I do make (tentative) lists. More like just general lists of what I want to read without actual requiring that I read them anytime soon lol.

    Beautiful cover on the Clare book- hers always seem to be nice.

      Most of my lists for TTT are tentative lists. I love making them so I can participate in TTT, but I rarely adhere to them completely. 😀 I don’t mind, though.

      Great minds think alike! 😀 I’ll reread the original three in the Graceling series before I tackle Winterkeep and Seasparrow. I’m really excited to see where Cashore takes the series. 😀

    As a mood reader, I completely understand! I love making TBR lists but rarely follow through with them.

    I read Dating Dr. Dil recently and enjoyed it!

      I also love the covers of her books. Some of them are my favorite covers of all-time. I hope you read one of her books soon and that you like it. 😀

    I accidentally read Winterkeep before I read Bitterblue and didn’t even realize it until I finished. It’s been so long since I read Fire, I just thought I had forgotten events from that book! Oops. Good luck finishing your list!

      Oh no! I’ve done that before with other series and when I went back to read the first book I realized all the little callbacks to the first book. LOL. 😀

    My “men” were always over-excited about Harry Potter. We used to order two copies of Harry Potter, Son #1 would read the one with the the adult cover over night and then pass it on to hubby, Son #2 would get the “children’s edition”. When one of the others had finished theirs, Son #1 would re-read the book. LOL And I think they’ve all re-read them dozens of times.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT this week.

      LOL. I don’t really have a seasonal TBR either. I just make lists so I can participate in TTT. I’m like you. I have a ginormous TBR that I’ll never get through. 😂

      It’s okay. It’s a long series and the last few books are huge. If you’re not really into them, then you read something else, right? 😀 I’m glad your kids love them.
