Top Ten Tuesdays: Books I bought in 2021 that I Didn’t Get Round To Reading

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl. For the rules see her blog.

The topic this week is 2021 Releases I Was Excited to Read But Didn’t Get To but I decided to change it a bit and list ten of the books I bought in 2021 that I didn’t get round to reading. The only reason I haven’t read them yet is that I’ve been reading other books … I can only read one book at a time, regardless of how many I have on the go at once.

They are a mix of fiction and nonfiction:

  1. The Radium Girls: They paid with their lives. Their final fight was for justice by.Kate Moore
  2. Everyone Versus Racism: A Letter to My Children by Patrick Hutchinson
  3. The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton
  4. Winds of Change: Britain in the Early Sixties by Peter Hennessy
  5. Philip: The Final Portrait by Gyles Brandreth
  6. The Hanging Tree: Book 6 in Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch
  7. Plenty: A Memoir of Food and Family by Hannah Howard
  8. Mrs England by Stacey Halls
  9. Fall and Rise: The Story of 9/11 by Mitchell Zuckoff
  10. Written In Bone: hidden stories in what we leave behind by Sue Black

Which one to read first? I can’t decide.

  1. I’ve had Mrs England on the TBR since last year too. I’m hoping to find time for it soon, as I enjoyed Stacey Halls’ first two books.


  2. I’ve been wanting to read The Radium Girls, myself, Margaret. I hope you’ll get to that soon, because I’d really like to know more about that one. The rest look really interesting, too!


  3. The Radium Girls is heartbreaking, I remember crying on the train reading it. Mrs England is on my list too this week, I have it on audio so it’s weird I haven’t listened to it yet, but I’m sure that will change soon!


  4. Plenty is on my Kindle from Netflix, I’ve started it but that’s all. Gyles Brandreth’s book on the Queen and Prince Philip’s marriage was very good.I either read Radium Girls or another book on the same subject–so sad.


  5. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of Amsterdam in The Miniaturist – hope you do too. Be ready for an emotional experience with Fall and Rise. Not an easy book to read but I did learn a lot from it


  6. Same. I can only read one book at a time. I always have an audiobook going in addition to a paper or e-book, so I guess, technically, I have two books going at any given time, but I can only READ one at a time. Anyway, I hope you enjoy all these when you get to them!

    Happy TTT!



  7. I didn’t get to Radium Girls either, although I really wanted to. I did read Written in Bone, however, which I found really interesting. I hope you enjoy all of these when you get to them!
