Books That Have Been on My TBR the Longest and I Still Haven't Read

a weekly meme by That Artsy Reader Girl

I'm definitely an expert in stacking so much books on my little library, and by stacking means... haven't read them all for.. uuuh, years. I don't remember exactly how long because I'm not the type to write every birth-date (the day those books came to me and be my children) of my books. So yeah.. in order to list this week Top Ten Tuesday, I'm going to try (really hard) to remember which books that have been breathing dust for too long on my little library, but also with the help of my Goodreads to-read bookshelf.

Here's the list!

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

I know.. I know.. I'm so so so late that I haven't read those books. They've been sitting too long in my little library waiting to be read but years passed by and I continued my life by reading another books but them. I always felt so guilty when I stared at those piles I haven't read and these books stared at me with tears falling from the center of its cover. Okay, okay, settle down! I'm going to put you three on my top list to be read this year! Happy? x)

Hetty Feather by Jacqueline Wilson
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
Kesatria, Puteri, & Bintang Jatuh by Dee

The main reason I haven't read them: I still not owned the complete series. As for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I already owned book one and book three, but without book two! (Yeah unfortunately I still haven't found the translated version of book two..) How am I supposed to read these then? :(

Bokutachi no Unmei by Orihara Ran
Please Look After Mom by Kyung Sook Shin
Big Breasts and Wide Hips by Mo Yan

I remember I was so happy when I finally owned those books. And now I still don't know the reason why I haven't read them for toooooo long. Well.. the most suitable and common and makes-sense explanation is that probably I'm just too lazy to start reading. :p


Since I've just finished listing the oldest books on my bookshelf, I think it would be best to put all of these books in SHOULD-REALLY-BE-READ-THIS-YEAR shelf (minus the book-serial). I hope I'll have enough time and will to read these six oldies. Wish me luck! ^^
