The April theme for Six for Sunday, hosted by A Little But a Lot is Taking on the TBR pile and today’s prompt is for Books that have been on your TBR forever. I only really started to build up a massive TBR when I started reading lots again – around Christmas 2019. This pile drew bigger and bigger as more and more new books came out, and I wanted them all. The only problem was that I couldn’t read as fast as my TBR pile was growing! I’ve had a look at my TBR, and below are six books that have been on it for far too long, so I intend to get reading them over the next couple of months – as well as try to clear my NetGalley approvals which is also getting rather large.

Scavengers by Darren Simpson was released in March 2019 and is currently very close to the top of my TBR. I’ve read lots of great reviews about this, and am really looking forward to reading it. The opening lines definitely intrigued me!

Tin by Padraig Kenny was released in February 2018. I got both it and his second novel, Pog on the same day. I read Pog really quickly but have still not got round to reading this one. I have really liked reading a few books with robots in recently, so this one definitely appeals.

Wundersmith: The Calling of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend was published in October 2018 (hardback) and in May 2019 (paperback). I absolutely loved the first book in this series, Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow, and can’t believe I haven’t read this one yet!

The Wild Folk by Slyvia V Linsteadt was published in June 2018, and is another one that has been sitting on my TBR for too long. It sounds like a perfect escapist read for these times, and I’m really looking forward to diving in!

The Peculiar Peggs of Riddling Woods by Samuel J Halpin was released in November 2018. I remember being really eager to read this one, and my final choice, at the time I picked it up. I don’t know how books I’m really keen to read end up bypassing me for so long!

A Darkness of Dragons by S A Patrick was published in September 2018. I think I picked it up at the same time as the one above. This sounds like a great fantasy adventure, which is my favourite genre so, again, I don’t know how it has been buried in plain sight in my TBR for so long!

This prompt has been a really good opportunity to remind me to look at the older books on my TBR and to catch up on some of these books as I obviously wanted to read them enough to buy them at the time.

  1. Oh some WONDERFUL choices! I absolutely love The Wild Folk. I still need to read A Darkness of Dragons too. The only one of these I wasn’t fussed about was Tin, but I was in the minority so hope you enjoy it!

    1. Thank you! There are so many amazing middle-grade books! I have so, so many on my TBR as I can’t resist buying them. They all do end up in my class library as I love sharing books with my class.

      1. Oh, I’m definitely with you. I have a spreadsheet of TBR books and it keeps growing. I’m happy to be soaking up all of these books to share with my kiddos too! Thanks for the follow too. ❤️
