Top 5 Tuesday- Top 5 books that have been on my TBR the longest

Hey guys!! I’m back with another Top 5 Tuesday, and this week’s topic is books that have been on my TBR the longest. Now I usually maintain my TBR really well. It might seem impossible to many readers, but I actually have a well regulated TBR and unlike many people, I’m not drowning under it. That being said, there are some books that have been on that list wayyy too long, and really need to be read soon.

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme the lovely Shanah from Bionic Bookworm hosts. If you are interested in taking part in it, then go ahead- she welcomes it! Here is a list of the remaining November topics if you’re interested in participating. 

  1. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

I have been meaning to read this book FOREVER now, but I just haven’t been able to get my hands on it! I’ve heard good things about it, but either it’s never available, or when it is, I’m not in the mood to read a cute contemporary. I really want to read it, BUT THE TIME IS JUST NEVER RIGHT.

2. One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus

One of my aunts who was visiting from India purchased this book for me, but she forgot to bring it with her. I was so disappointed, because I’ve been wanting to read it FOREVER. But my dad is going to India this month, and I think he’s meeting my aunt, so hopefully he’ll bring it back with him!

3. Geekerella by Ashley Poston

There was so much hype about this book this summer, and the fact that it’s a retelling of Cinderella made me really want to read it. But I don’t usually buy books in Singapore cuz they’re expensive AF, and so my dad brings books for me whenever he goes to India. (basically every month) And because there were other books on my TBR which I was more excited to read, I never got around to buying Geekerella. But my dad will be bringing it when he goes to India this month, so I’ll finally be reading it!

4. This Savage Song by V.E Schwab

I honestly don’t know why I haven’t read this book yet. It’s just so hyped, that I don’t really want to read it cuz it might not live up to my expectations. Illuminae was a recent disappointment for me, so after one hyped book disappointing me, I want to wait a bit before I read this.

5. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

I’m disappointed with myself that I haven’t read this yet. I’ve heard the best things about it, and it deals with such an important issue, but I just haven’t read it yet! I want to get to it as soon as possible, so the next time I see it in a library, I’m definitely gonna pick it up!

Have you not read any of these books? Do you plan on picking them up? Let’s chat!

Thanks for reading guys!

Add yours

      1. It takes me so long to get through my list when I’m in school. I only have time to read about 2 books per month and it feels like I’ll never get to read all of the books I want to! I might have to just cut a couple loose.


  1. This is a great list! I have to admit there are a couple on your list that I haven’t gotten to yet either (This Savage Song and One Of Us is Lying) so you aren’t alone! I think we are all a little embarrassed to admit these books are still on our TBR’s!
    Thanks for participating 🙂

    I dnfed When Dimple Met Rishi, it was a bucket of sgskgjfnvjfdgkj WELL IT WAS JUST A REALLY ANNOYING BUCKET THAT GOT IN MY WAY.

    Honestly THUG will change your life YOU SILLY PEA. WHY HAVENT YOU READ ITTTTT. This cant be a “ill definitely pick it up”-and-then-you-never-pick-it-up-kinda-thing.(I DO/SAY THIS ALLLLL THE TIME) YOU ACTUALLY NEED TO READ IT. I had literal SHIVERS of pure joy when reading this and I CRIED WITH HAPPINESS when everyone was being all squishy and supportive and sweet.

  5. I’ve read all of these but Geekerella and I loved them! My favourite was The Hate U Give, please do read it – you won’t regret it honestly. This Savage Song is amazing!! One of my favourite books this year too. One of Us Is Lying was quite good too, not one of my faves, but that’s probably just because I’m not that keen on murder mysteries/thrillers. When Dimple Met Rishi is another really good book, I adored it. Both Dimple and Rishi are such lovely characters and I just really liked it. 🙂
