Old TBR Books

Today is Tuesday. That means it's time for Top Ten Tuesday. Today's topic is books on my TBR that have been there since before I started blogging. Now, I don't have an actual date I began blogging. I went back and looked and my blog just says "2 years ago" I do have a date on my third or fourth post that says July 4 2014, so we'll just go with that.

According to my Goodreads account, these are the books still on my TBR from before July 4, 2014.

The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer - Gifted kids meet at art camp and then they grow up.

The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad - Just like what it sounds like. Non-fiction

Songs of Willow Frost by Jamie Ford - I don't even know what it's about anymore, but I loved his first book.

Night Film by Marisha Pessl - This is a scary book, so I'm working my way up to it.

Freud's Mistress by Karen Mack - My Psychology degree rears its ugly head.

The White Queen by Philippa Gregory - This is the first in a series. I keep trying to convince myself that I like this type of thing.
