Backlist Books I Want to Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

Top Ten Tuesday
This week is Top Ten 
Backlist Books I Want to Read
Because I get a lot of books from the library, I end up picking up a lot of backlist books any way. My local library is actually great for getting new releases in, but I love having a browse of the shelves and picking out older books at random.

This list was actually pretty hard, as when I want to read a book I generally do, especially if it's a backlist title as they're easier (generally) to get a hold of.

  • The Elites by Natasha Ngan
    I have had this book for years and just never got round to it. I can remember quite specifically picking it up in Aldi, because that's a weird place to buy books.
  • Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson
    I have also had this book for years, I even have a signed copy! One Day I will pick it up, as I loved the author's writing style in the Shades of London series.
  • This is Not Forgiveness by Celia Rees
    I think this is the only book by the author I have not read! I don't even own a copy, but I definitely want to read it at some point.
  • Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
    I loved the Uglies series, they were some of my favourites as a teen, but I never read any of the author's other books and I'd like to change that.
  • iBoy by Kevin Brooks
    There are very few Kevin Brooks book I have not read, and iBoy is one of them. I did try years ago when it was first published but couldn't get into it.
  • The 101 Dalmatians by Dodie Smith
    Ask me what my favourite book ever is, and without hesitation I will reply I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. So it's probably weird that I've never read another of her books?
  • Leaving Poppy by Kate Cann
    I absolutely ADORED Kate Cann as a teen and read every single one of her books. Except this one. I definitely want to read it.
  • Mary Hades by Sarah Dalton
    My Daylight Monsters was delightfully creepy, but for some reason I never read on when it came to Mary's story.
  • Queen of Bedlam by Laura Purcell
    I recently read and loved The Corset by Laura Purcell so I am eager to check out the author's backlist. Queen of Bedlam sounds amazing.
  • The 100 by Kass Morgan
    Earlier this year I read Light Years and I thought it was incredible, and I've been making my way through The 100 TV series, so I'm excited to start the books.

    Which backlist books do you want to read?


    1. The One Hundred and One Dalmatians is one of my favourite classics, it's absolutely lovely! Really hope you enjoy it 💜
      Some backlist books I want to try are Kasie West's books, because I've never read her and I really enjoy YA romance as a genre.

      1. Definitely going to bump it up my list :)
        I've never read any Kasie West but I've heard excellent things!

    2. I Capture the Castle is a book I've been meaning to read for a while, and I would also like to read One Hundred and One Dalmatians. Here is my Top Ten Tuesday.

      1. Honestly it's easily my favourite ever book, I hope you get to read it one day.

    3. OOH I'm so glad to see you loved Light Years - I currently have it out from the library! I want to read The 100 books sometime.

      1. Every so often they pop up in the middle isle and I pounce haha. Weirdly tends to be Hot Key Books?

    5. These sound like great books! Good luck with reading the books on your list! I definitely need to do some more reading.

    9. I always forget that the 100 tv series is based on a book! I watch the series and I really enjoy it, so maybe I'll give the book a try as well!
