tttTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is :

The Last Ten Books I Abandoned set aside – for now

I’m teaming my post up this week with Wyrd and Wonder (details here) and so I’ve chosen fantasy books for this week’s theme.

This is s sad post.  I don’t like to abandon books – it sounds so harsh doesn’t it.  Let’s not say ‘abandon’, lets say ‘set aside’ – at the end of the day you just never know do you.  Here are ten books that I’ve come to the conclusion I probably won’t read, they’re all books I’ve bought some time ago and really wanted but that gnawing urge has, for now, diminished.  Let me be clear – no books were harmed in the making of this post, they’re all still sitting pretty and, lets be honest, i’ll probably never let them go (insert mad cackle) but, I recognise that I probably won’t read them at this point – unless someone absolutely tells me I HAVE TO:

  1. Some Kind of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce
  2. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
  3. The Adamantine Palace  by Stephen Deas
  4. The Shambling Guide to New York City by Mur Lafferty
  5. The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August by Claire North
  6. Jinn and Juice by Nicole Peeler
  7. The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
  8. Written in Red by Anne Bishop
  9. The Ballad of Black Tom by Victor LaValle
  10. Radiance by Grace Draven

So, which one do you think I absolutely have to read??
