Today is a freebie post so I’m writing about backlist books (original post from November 6th) that I want to prioritize. Most people, when they find an author they love they’ll run through everything else they’ve written. I am not one of those people. I’ll read something I love, add everything else they’ve written to my TBR, and then promptly forget about them. The hazards of being a book reviewer, I have a tendency to focus on newer books and let my backlist TBR fall by the wayside. At least it comes up in a Tuesday topic and reminds me of all the books I have yet to read…

Here are ten backlist books that I’d love to get around to sooner rather than later.

Donna Tartt | Read: The Secret History, TBR: The Goldfinch
John Fowles | Read: The Collector, TBR: The Magus
Jonathan Stroud | Read: The Screaming Staircase, TBR: The Amulet of Samarkand
Jordan Harper | Read: She Rides Shotgun, TBR:  Love and Other Wounds: Stories
Rachel Bach/Aaron | Read: Fortune’s Pawn, TBR: The Spirit Thief

Robert Jackson Bennett | Read: Foundryside, TBR: City of Stairs
Ruth Reichl | Read: Tender at the Bone: Growing Up at the Table, TBR: Garlic and Sapphires
Sarah Pinborough | Read: Mayhem, TBR: A Matter of Blood
Sarah Waters | Read: Affinity, TBR: Fingersmith
Steph Post | Read: Lightwood, TBR: A Tree Born Crooked

  1. I keep meaning to read Mayhem. Like you, I think I’m so focused on newer books. I have tried to add a backlist book each month but I have failed. Think I managed about 6-8 posts for that goal last year. Great topic!
