Books Which Have Been on my TBR the Longest!

After my 2019 reading goals post, I mentioned that I wish to read some of the books that I’ve had on my TBR the longest. I officially started my Goodreads page on 8th August 2016, and there are some books which I added on that day which are still sitting there… safe to say that I need to read some of these! Here is the list of those books that I added to my TBR on the first day.

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Emma by Jane Austen
The Giver by Lois Lowry
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinback
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
The Kite Runner by Khalid Hosseini
Persuasion by Jane Austen
All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
Atonement by Ian McEwan
11/22/63 by Stephen King
Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly
Dark Places by Gillian Flynn

So lets see if I actually manage to read any of these books! I do want to make it a priority to get this list down, and many of these also double up with some of my other reading goals and also challenges for the year long reading challenges I’m trying to get through! So fingers crossed!


So which of these books have you read? Any you recommend that I prioritise? Are there many books that have been on your TBR’s for a silly amount of time like me? And if so, what are your plans to try and reduce that? I’d love to know!
