I have gone back and forth countless times as to whether or not I’d participate in Top Ten Tuesday. I regularly read the posts created by others but a lot of the time I I don’t make it to my own because this whole “10” thing throws me for loop (as noted by my “Slightly More Than Top 10” favorites lists). After I saw the slight tweak to today’s topic on my good blogger friend Jessica at A Baker’s Perspective‘s page (with the idea from Andi at Radiant Light), I decided I needed to jump in this week. Will I participate every week going forward? Probably not, but we will see how things go 🙂 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading and Why” but since I’m not actually avoiding any, I am sharing some of the ones that are shouting at me the loudest 😉
Nothing like a visit to good ol’ Goodreads to remind you of all those books sitting on your TBR that you can’t believe you haven’t gotten to yet! I’m sharing in no particular order.
Top Ten Books on my Shouty TBR
I am ashamed to admit I haven’t read this one yet. As a HUGE janette Oke fan I have no excuse. I need to read this one ASAP.
I have had this one on my TBR for quite a while but I finally purchased a copy while I was at FRS last month so hopefully it will be moving to my READ pile very soon!
This is another one that I have had sitting on my pile and already owned on Kindle but came home with a paperback from FRS. There’s just something about that physical book!
This one likes to shout at me regularly from the shelf. I have had a copy for a few months now waiting impatiently for me to open it up. It’s going to happen very soon. It needs to happen very soon.
Another one I have no excuse for. I have a copy on my Kindle. I hope to read it soon.
Another one I purchased while at FRS. I’ve heard amazing things about this book along with her newest release Shades of Light.
It’s okay to be jealous… but do you remember me posting about how I was able to tour Baker Publishing Group (if not click HERE). while I was out to attend FRS? Yeah, I managed to walk out of the building with a signed copy of this one. Sentimental much? Of course.
I have several friends who have loved Karen Barnett’s books and I’m ashamed to admit I haven’t read any yet. I did however sit with her at FRS and had a wonderful time getting to know her (and the famous Ranger Bear). I came home with not only a copy for me, but 2 as gifts for others (which was pre-planned 😉 )
This one might not happen as quickly as others because I don’t actually have a copy of it, but I’ve wanted to read this one since before it came out.
This is another one I’ve wanted to read for a while. I think I have it on my Kindle but you know me, I like my physical book if I can. (They’re more shouty that way too haha).
What books have been shouting at you from your TBR?
I have books that have been on my TBR for years. But I have an excellent excuse–I want to read so many more books than there is time. So many books. 😀 My TTT
Yes! That’s the problem we need more time!
Great post! I have so many on my TBR pile I am ashamed to admit.
Oh yay! So glad you joined 😊 some of the topics last year were super hard, which is why I can of fizzled out. Hoping I do better this time around!
That’s one of the reasons I’ve been afraid to join lol. We’ll see how things go 😊
I read The Last Year of the War and The Road to Paradise and enjoyed them both. I also have The Girl From the Train, but have not gotten to it yet. Some good books appear to be on your list. 😃
Oh good! Nice to know we have similar taste in books 😊
I’m really good at being in avoidance mode when it comes to reading things. I’m not familiar with any of the books on your list, but I hope you enjoy them when you get to them.

Everyone has their own personal tastes 🙂 thanks for stopping by!
