Backlist Books I Own and Want To Read

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

1.) The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
I was super interested in this contemporary before it came out in 2015 because I kind of worked in politics at the time but I never read it. Then after the election I didn't have the heart to read it but I do still want to.

2.) Dissonance by Erica O'Rourke
I heard really good things about this YA science fiction when it came out four years ago from blogger friends and I even received a copy as a gift but I still haven't read it.

3&4.) The Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson
*runs and hides* I have read most of Brandon Sanderson's books but this one intimidates me because it is so long. I even started the audio but I just couldn't devote the time.

5&6.) Out of Sight Out of Time and United We Spy by Ally Carter
I have really been dragging my feet on this series. I got the last three books in a used book store haul over a year ago and I still haven't read the last two.

7.) Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee
I loved Stacey's debut and even though I got a copy of this one (signed!) at ALA last year I still have not read it. I'm super interested in her book that's coming out next year but I feel like I should read this first, even though they are not related.

8.) A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
I have read most of Mindy's books but not this one even though I have owned a copy of both the e-book and a physical copy. I keep thinking I will read this one and never do.

9.) That Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I have read The Fixer series by Jennifer and loved it so I want to read this one. I mean it's about spies and the main character's name is Cassie.

10.) The Imposter Queen by Sarah Fine
I read Sarah's Phantom of the Opera retelling and I really enjoyed it so it made me want to read more of her books including this series. I got a copy of this I think from a Book Outlet haul but still haven't read it.

11 & 12.) Dark Triumph and Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers
I saved the worst for last. I really hope people don't defriend me over this one. I loved the first book in the series but never continued. I plan to before the new book comes out in January.

There you have it! All the backlist books I own but have not read. What backlist books are still on your TBR. Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. Yes, I've been dying to read the Stormlight Archives, too! Unfortunately, I get super duper overwhelmed by huge books... maybe when I finally hit my Goodreads goal number for this year, I'll actually let myself slow down, and enjoy something longer!

  2. I loved The Naturals! I read the sequel and maybe the third book too - loved them all!
