Top Ten Unread Books on My Shelf

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's Top Ten is:  Top Ten Books that have been on My Shelf the Longest but I haven't Read

A lot of these are books I really should have read by now but because they kind of intimidate me, I have put them on the back burner. Several are memoirs or non-fiction works that center around Russian history

1.) The Drawing of the Three by Stephen King
2.) The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett
3.) The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
4.) Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
5.) Ada or Ardor by Vladimir Nabokov
6.) The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
7.) When Christ and His Saints Slept by Sharon Kay Penman
8.) The Gulag Archipelago by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
9.) The Whisperers by Orlando Figes
10.) Hope Against Hope by Nadezhda Mandelstam

What's on your list?


  1. Your first two I read this year. Actually to be fair I listened to Pillars. It is good, but does have very long passages describing how things are put together. I decided to hold off on King for a while after Drawing of the Three.

  2. Oohh Pillars of the Earth is really good. It doesn't take that long to read, either. I have World Without End on my TBR shelf. Hopefully I'll get to it in the New Year.

  3. We share Les Miserables. :)
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. :)

  4. The Pillars of the Earth was lent to me by my office mate. It sat on my shelf for about a year until I had to give it back, unread. Lol.
