10 Books That Have Been on My TBR Way Too Long

Like Bookish lists?  Check-out Top 10 Tuesday hosted by The Broke and The Bookish!

Here’s a fact: it would be almost impossible for me to read all the books on my TBR in 2018.  412 books on my TBR x 6 hours per book = 2,472 hours to complete. That’s 103 days of reading around the clock.  Or even better, someone could hire me to read eight hours a day (waaay more fun than my current day job) and it could be my full-time job for the year! Kind of intimidating to think about TBR math, isn’t it?  Well, let’s prioritize with 10 of the books that I really intend on getting around to in 2018 (I swear… this is the year I’m going to read these monsters)

Outlander by Dianna Gabaldon

Time on TBR: 1,059 days


The Book of Life (All Souls #3)  by Deborah Harkness

Time on TBR:  1,134 days


Iced by Karen Marie Moning

      Thanks, Lisa! Hoping to knock of few of these off the list this year, but kind of resigned to never getting through them 🙂

      Ironically, I think some of the first books I put on my TBR are well… still on my TBR. I have a strange sentimental attachment to seeing them on Goodreads that keeps me from deleting them 🙂

  1. Ha ha. Yeah, I could never realistically read all the books on my TBR list, but that doesn’t stop me from adding more every day! I need an intervention 🙂

    I hope you get to all these and that you love them. Happy TTT!

      Sometimes, I think I add the books to the TBR just so I can organize the list later 🙂 There’s a strange sense of accomplishment when you review the list and start clearing the “eh” books out 🙂

      I love TBR math – only because it makes me realize how irrational I can be about my TBR list! 🙂

  2. Yay, same here, honey. I refused to do the math because I didn’t want to feel guilty. Haha.. I have LOTS of unread books and ebooks. I’m not sure i’ll be able to read this year. The new releases are so TEMPTING. Haha..
    Anyway, one of the series I’m planning to finish is The Other series. I loved the first two and need to finish the last three. I hope you enjoy them once you read them. 😁❤️👍🏻
