Rewind | Did I Read Those Listed Backlist Books from 2018? | #TopTenTuesday 378

On occasion it is good to look back at previous posts we have done. To reflect, to go in a different direction or to redo the topic. Which is why today we have rewind as a topic for Top Ten Tuesday (as always hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl).

I decided to look back at a post where I listed a backlist of scifi books in 2018 and see what I have actually read from it.

You can find the original post here.

Well I guess 3 out of 10 isn’t as spectaculary bad as I thought it was going to be. Ancillary Justice and The Rise and Fall of DODO were great books. Binti wasn’t really my thing.

As for the other books, I have Avalon and Dirk Gently’s on my shelves to read. But I don’t think I’m as interested in still reading Under the Never Sky, The City and the City, Blood Red Road, Gemina and Unearthed. Sometimes things just change over the years and it has been 4,5 year since I wrote that post.

  1. 3 out of 10 indeed isn’t bad at all! And like you say, reading tastes change and that’s ompletely okay ๐Ÿ™‚ I still want to give Gemina a try, but it’s also not what I want to be reading right now, so maybe someday…

    1. Maybe it it appears in my library or if it gets translated (and then appears in my library) I might still give it a chance. But at this point it is not something I want to give money too.

  2. I am always so scared to look back at these. I’m terrible at keeping TBRs. My secret lately has been adding arcs. haha! This way, I get some of them read. My reading has changed so much from even two years ago, I can’t imagine any longer!

    My Top Ten!

  3. Dit soort posts zijn soms confronterend hรฉ. Ik moet nog eens werk maken van de volgende Lees ik mijn aanwinsten ook echt? Dat zou voor het jaar 2020 zijn en hoe dichterbij we komen hoe groter de kans dat ik de meeste boeken nog niet gelezen heb. Ach ja, al een geluk heeft een tbr geen vervaldatum. Tegelijkertijd vind ik de Deze boeken wil ik nog graag lezen blogposts een handig geheugensteuntje voor mezelf want als het er niet snel van komt is de kans groot dat ze uit mijn gedachten verdwijnen.
