It’s Tuesday, the last school-free day for me! So let’s make this a good one! I’ll be listing all the books that are still on my TBR (and will remain there for another while) because I’m avoiding them!
#1 The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I have been avoiding this book for MONTHS now, even though I was absolutely eager to own it. Fact is: I don’t want to destroy the holy picture which I have created in my mind. I’m picturing this amazing book with a suspenseful story, a great mystery and amazing characters. I’m simply afraid that it won’t live up to my expectations.
#2 A Torch against the Night by Sabaa Tahir
Same here: after finishing An Ember in the Ashes last fall, I’m just scared that the series won’t continue as amazing as I’m picturing it.
#3 Renegades by Marissa Meyer
I have this picture of Marissa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles in my head and I’m thinking super highly of her as an author right now. And I wan’t to believe further that I love everything I’ve read of her – and I have heard so many mixed reviews about this series: some say that this was one of the best series they’ve ever read and others think that after reading The Lunar Chronicles, you’ll be utterly disappointed.
#4 Enchantée by Gita Trelease
I have the feeling that I haven’t read a YA book in quite a while and therefore I’m just not very sure which one I should start with again. And this might be a risk… And I feel like I don’t know very much about the plot, and that’s an issue.
#5 A Shakespeare play
I have been wanting to read some Shakespeare play forever now (I haven’t actually dealt with the fact that I don’t know which one to start with). But I’m afraid that I’ll hate it because it’s too difficult and complicated to read, that it’s too old and that I’ll end up choosing the wrong one to start with – and the anxiety is building up haha.
#6 Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins
I recently read The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren and that’s the reason I’m avoiding this – I don’t want another simple contemporary story. The other book was great for the summer, but now I don’t want to read just a cheesy and cute story – so it’ll remain on my TBR for some time longer.
#7 On the Come Up by Angie Thomas
I loved The Hate U Give and now I’m simply scared that Angie Thomas’ new book won’t live up to the expectations I have because her previous work was so brilliant.
#8 A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
#9 How Democracies Die by Steven Levitsky & Daniel Ziblatt
Finally, here’s a non-fiction, educational book. It sounds amazing. I would love to have the knowledge of what’s in it. But I’m afraid I’ll stop reading because I have so much other things going on and then don’t want to waste my free time reading educational things.
#10 YA Fantasy
I feel like the times where I only read YA fantasy are starting to end – don’t get me wrong, I’ll still love it and will also continue reading it. But not only YA fantasy.
That’s it – I hope you enjoyed this small excerpt of my TBR list, make the most of your day and happy reading!
