I'm participating in today's Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's prompt is:
The Last Ten Books I Returned To The Library Unread
The original prompt asked to list the last ten books that came into my possession. I thought my answers to that question would be to close to my answers to this prompt from a few weeks ago, so I changed it a little.
I'm actually quite fastidious about my library books. I really hate returning books to the library unread, so I try really hard to only check out a reasonable number of books I know I can read before they're due. But occasionally a bunch of my requests will come through all at once, and I don't always get to them all. Or sometimes, I'm just not in the mood for that book, so it gets sent back unopened. Here are the last ten books I've returned to the library unread:
I actually did start this one, but I didn't get very far. It seemed like a good book, it just wasn't what I was in the mood for.
I do love me some Shannon Hale, and I've been wanting to read this series. But I ended up reading her third Princess Academy book instead.
This book sounds amazing. I just ran out of time.
I love Clarke's The Assassin's Curse duology, so I will read this book someday. Just not yet, apparently.
Did anyone else see that miniseries based on this book last year? I thought it was really well done, and have been itching to read this book ever since. Though I'm apparently not itching hard enough.
The American Civil War is not my favorite era to read about, but I do like spy stories. I'd like to give this book another shot.
Hello, this book is about dragons. Why didn't I read it?? I have no answers here.
I devoured Chima's Seven Realms series. I want to do the same to this series, but just haven't started yet.
This one hurt to return unread. I still want to read it really badly, I just didn't have the time when I had it in my possession.
I still want to read this one, too. I might wait until the whole series is released before re-attempting to start, though.
Tell me, how many books do you check out from the library at once? How often do you return books unread?
