Tell Me Something Tuesday

Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About  and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.

I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…

What book has been sitting on your TBR pile the longest?

Okay, here’s the problem. I did this massive overhaul of my TBR list on Goodreads last year. And the one detail that got messed up in that is when books were initially added to my TBR pile. So, I’m going on gut. I remember going through Borders Books (remember them?) before my trip to visit several grad schools in Jan/Feb 2011 and grabbing a book that sounded great and I loved the cover. I thought, I’ll read it on my trip. But then I was so busy on that trip with preparing for and actually visiting the grad schools that I didn’t do much leisure reading. And I never read it. EVER. And this was before I started blogging and amassing hordes of books (I just was not as aware of ALL THE BOOKS).  And it has made it through 8 moves. Packed up and unpacked 8 times!! So, it is quite possibly the book on my TBR List the longest. I’d be curious to know if anyone has read it… maybe I should get on it, seeing as I’ve held on to it all these years?

Tell Me Something Tuesday: TBR the longestParanormalcy by Kiersten White
Series: Paranormalcy #1
Published by HarperTeen on August 31, 2010
Pages: 335
Format: Hardcover

Evie’s always thought of herself as a normal teenager, even though she works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, her ex-boyfriend is a faerie, she’s falling for a shape-shifter, and she’s the only person who can see through supernatural glamours.
She’s also about to find out that she may be at the center of a dark faerie prophecy promising destruction to all paranormal creatures.
So much for normal.

  1. Borders! I miss that store. I recognize the author of your book, but I haven’t read that one. I have no idea which is the oldest on my actual shelf, but my oldest unread Kindle book is from 2012- Homespun Bride by Jillian Hart that I got as a freebie (back when I was one-clicking every freebie I noticed.).

  2. I looked it up. I started using Goodreads in 2011 after I got a Kindle. It was Dead or Alive by Tom Clancy (Jack Ryan Universe #15) Oct 23, 2011. Funny that around that same time period I had the Succubus books by Richelle Mead. The Iron Druid books and also Up from the Grave by JF which is the 7th Cat & Bones book. Also the first Alex Craft book by Kalayna Price. So I am getting to some of them nowadays. LOL
