#SixforSunday : Books that have been on my TBR forever

Steph created the Six For Sunday challenge, and this quarter’s prompts are here! This week it’s books that have been on my TBR for far too long. Last month I actually read Russian Roulette by Anthony Horowitz, which would have been absolutely top of the list as I procrastinated it for nearly seven years before reading it. But that’s not TBR any more, so I’ll see what I can find on my shelves.

  • Moriarty: The Hound of the D’Urbervilles by Kim Newman
  • The Adventures of Moriarty edited by Maxim Jakubowski

I bought both of these while I was at uni, fully intending on reading them right away – and then uni happened and I never got there. I’m gonna get to them soon, though! Especially the short story collection, because I want to read through all of my short story collections soon.

  • Inheritance by Christopher Paolini

The Eragon series was literally formative for me, but I’ve never finished reading them. Yes I’m embarrassed about it. I stopped reading Brisingr to let a friend catch up after a huge plot twist, and that was in 2008. I still haven’t finished Brisingr, so I haven’t read Inheritance. Once I get my hands on a copy of Eragon and Inheritance (I have the other two) I’m gonna reread the first three and finish this series!

  • The Odyssey translated by Emily Wilson

This one hasn’t been on my TBR forever, but it’s been on my ‘currently reading’ forever. I really enjoy it, but it’s a slow going read so I tend to pick up a little bit at a time and put it down again. I’ll finish it one day, but uh, not soon probably.

  • Followed by Frost by Charlie N. Holmberg

I don’t know exactly when I bought this, but it must have been a while ago. I think I read the Paper Magician series in 2016, and I must have bought this not long afterwards because it’s by the same author, and then I lost it to the dark depths of my kindle library. When I deleted a load of books I was never going to read, I kept this one, which means I am going to read it. One day. I swear.

  • Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I pre-ordered this one, because I love Leigh Bardugo and I love Wonder Woman. And then I started reading it and just couldn’t get into it. I’m such a mood reader that I think I read it at the wrong time, and I’m definitely going to get back to it at some point.

See you next week for the next Six For Sunday!
