Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Was SO EXCITED about when they were released, but Still Haven’t Read 


Top Ten Tuesday often does “What’s on your Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall TBR” and that usually leads me to  survey new or soon-to-be-released books. But do I read them? Not always! I also suffer from what I call “homework syndrome”–if I put books in a list that must be read I lose interest. So, here are some that I’ve never done the “homework” with (bad grammar, I know).

I have not included any I DNF-ed.


Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia


The Great Circle: A Novel by Maggie Shipstead


The Last Bathing Beauty by Amy Sue Nathan


Lear Wife: A Novel by J.R. Thorp


The Rain Watcher: A Novel by Tatiana De Rosnay


The Husbands: A Novel by Chandler Baker


The Parisians: A Novel by Marius Gabriel 


I’m not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter by Erika L. Sanchez


In Five Years: A Novel by Rebecca Serle


The Farm: A Novel by Joanne Ramos

  1. I‘ve heard amazing things about Mexican Gothic, but haven‘t read it yet. Silvia Moreno-Garcia released another book last year too that I‘ve heard really good things about, Velvet Was the Night. One day…!

    Hope you enjoy these when you get to them!

    1. Very good to hear about Perfect Mexican Daughter. I couldn’t remember my Google login, but I LOVED several of the covers in your list–I haven’t read any of them so I can’t tell you which to go for. Thanks for reading here.


  2. Ha, “homework syndrome” is the perfect name for it — I’m definitely afflicted! Of these, I’ve read In Five Years, Mexican Gothic, and I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, and thought they were all terrific. I also have copies of The Farm,The Husbands, and Bathing Beauty that I haven’t read yet… maybe someday.

  3. I’m aware of most of the books on this TTT. The only one I’ve read so far is In Five Years. I was amazed at how many of your readers loved this novel. I have not yet written a review but was thinking of giving it 2 Stars. I thought the first half was okay but the rest was confusing, illogical, and disappointing. Maybe I missed something so I am hoping you enjoy it.
