Top Ten Tuesday | Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading & Why?

Hey, Hello! Happy Tuesday.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018, where Jana posts in advance topics for us and we then make a post about them.

This weeks prompt is: Books On My TBR I’m Avoiding Reading & Why?

This is a hard prompt this week…I’ll try my best!

The Wicked King

I know, I really should read this BUT in my defence, I really need to reread The Cruel Prince before I read this. That’s really the only reason I’m avoiding this.

A Conjuring of Light

I’m avoiding this because I don’t want this series to be over! Whilst it isn’t one of my absolute fave series, it’s still pretty good but I just cant bring myself to read this…

Grey Sister

Red Sister was a really good book, and I’ve heard Grey Sister and Holy Sister are much better but because they are adult fantasy books it seems to take me ages to read them so I’ve been putting them off until I have time to dedicate to them.

War Storm

I really enjoyed the Red Queen series but I just can’t bring myself to finish it, I don’t even know why. I think I’ve heard that this book is so slow and not as good.

The Black Witch

I really am so excited to read this book but I’ve heard so mixed things about it and I don’t really want to go into with high expectations just to be let down so I keep putting this off!

Muse of Nightmares

I absolutely love Strange the Dreamer, at the moment is number 3 in my top 5 books of all time and so I keep putting this off because I’m scared it wont be as good.


I received this in one of my Fairyloot boxes last year and I just haven’t found the need to pick it up yet. I’ve heard so many amazing things but I’ve never read anything by Brandon Sanderson and so I’m really anxious about it.

Days of Blood and Starlight

I adored Daughter of Smoke and Bone but I really need to reread it before I read Days of Blood and Starlight, or I suppose I could just find a recap online…hmmm…

The Last Magician

I don’t even know why I keep avoiding picking this book up. I’ve had it for so long, it was one of the first books I ever bought from Amazon but I just haven’t picked it up.

Carve The Mark

Again, I think I’m putting this one off because of mixed reviews. I have both though.

Are there any books on your TBR you keep avoiding? Why do you avoid them? Let me know in the comments! 🙂

  1. A lot of people really seem to dislike the Red Queen series beyond the first book. That being said, I really enjoyed it too! And War Storm is on my need-to-finish list as well. I have no good reason to not having finished it yet, as it is one of the rare completed series I own in hardcover. I just can’t bring myself to read it yet! Oops!

    Carve the Mark wasn’t my favourite book in the world but I hope you enjoy it if/when you get to it! (And all of these books, obviously!)

  2. There are some very good books on this list though! I really need to read red sister and skyward!


  3. Great post, I’m so bad at putting off books especially if it’s the last book in a series cause I just don’t want it to end. I hope you love Muse of Nightmares and Grey/Holy sister when you do pick them up as they are some of my favourite books 💜😀

  4. Ah, great list! A few of these are also ones I’m putting off reading (The Wicked King, Muse of Nightmares and Skyward). There’s a lot of love for all of these books and like you, I’m worried it won’t live up to the hype. I even re-read The Cruel Prince two weeks ago in prep for TWK but still haven’t picked it up! Haha I’m such a silly panda.
