    1. I actually started it once and didn't finish! The horror ha ha. I want to start again and finish though...

  4. I read Hitchhiker's last year, but it's the only book on your list that I've managed to pick up! I own a couple of them - Sister, Sister and Song of the Current - but I keep putting them off.

    Here's my TTT!

    1. I keep putting Song off too, I read like a chapter and it didn't grab me? But I'll try again- and I need to read Hitchhiker's!!

      Delete
  5. After I DNF I never go back to a book. It gets one chance with Chuckles. I DNFed Hitchhikers quite early on as it just didn't grab me at all. I hope you have better luck with it.

    1. I had the same problem with Hitchhiker's, it bored me? But I may try again. Generally though I'm the same- once I DNF I rarely go back.

      Delete
  6. I could have put Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on my list this week too. There were so many options, though, lol.

    1. I know, this list almost exploded??

  7. Ooh nice! Song of the Current is in my TBR pile, but only for the past year or so! Basically, the books I picked are the building blocks of my TBR pile! They started it and still remain unread! Whelp! Lol!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Ha they add up! And Song has been on my list since it came out, but I never seem to get to it (I did try it once and wasn't impressed, but I only gave it a chapter).

      Delete
  8. You haven't read Hitchhiker's Guide?! Shame on you, ha ha. I had totally forgotten that I wanted to read Song of the Current. Thanks for reminding me. ☺

    1. I know right? I feel like I'm the only person who hasn't read it??

  9. I thought for sure you would have read The Hitchhiker's Guide! I've never read it either but my hubby did, and of course, loved it.

    1. I know! Although I did start it once and stalled. I'll try again... :)

  10. It is a long blog title!!! Love the look of Sister Sister.

  11. The Hitchhiker's Guide was on my TBR for so long as well! It's one of my favorites!! :)

    1. I really need to try it again (I tried once but didn't get far). Maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind for it.

  12. The Valiant and The Wood are both books I definitely want to check out soon! I hope you eventually get to read all of these!

    1. That's good to know! I did like the sample I read- I just need to find time to read it.

  14. I have so many books in my TBR pile that have literally been there for years it is so sad! Some of these are new to me though but they do look good! Good luck getting to them and reading them. ;)

    1. Thanks! I know, it's so easy for the books to pile up, right?

  15. I haven't heard of any these titles but 'murder in the secret garden' sounds interesting, no idea what's about but just the fact it refers to another book makes it interesting to me.

    have a lovely day.

    1. It's the third in a series, basically they're murder mysteries set at a resort full of libraries, named after various authors. Nice right?

      Delete
  16. I need to read The Wood and Valiant too but there were books that have been on my list much longer so these didn't make it to mine. Good luck getting some of these read.

    1. Thanks! The Valiant is probably near the top of my list in terms of books I hope to get to, it sounds so good.

      Delete
  17. I've also had The Vault of Dreamers on my TBR since it came out! I never went out of my way to purchase and/or read it, so I guess that means I'm no longer interested. I've been seeing Valiant a lot though, so THAT one I'm interested in!

    1. Yes to The Valiant! And someone sent me an ARC of Vault since they really liked it, so I'm actually reading it now!

  18. They're all new to me but I have so many like that!

    1. I know, blogs tend to inflate my TBR crazily!

      Delete
  19. Though I do remember the cover on various lists or perhaps from seeing it on Amazon/Goodreads, I don't think I've ever really looked at The Valiant. It was on displays last time I went to B&N too. Funny how you see something all the time, but never really give it a second look.

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland, Greg. :)

    1. Yes I do that all the time, keep seeing a book and don't give it much thought. Then I might see it on a blog or something later and decide I have to have it. :)

      Delete
  20. Some of these aren't too old, so you seem to be doing better with your TBR than most of us! LOL I am curious about The Wood.

    1. I'm a mood reader and I tend not to have too many older books on my TBR, I just read em or move on I guess? Which is not always good because I miss some I really wanted to read, and then I see them later and I'm like- that one! But yes I'm glad they're not TOO old :)

      Delete
  21. I love The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! One of my all-time favorite books/series. It's goofy and way out there, but so much fun.

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thanks!

  23. Oh now I'm so curious! What did Alice know?! One of us needs to read this book and find out. Great list!

    Here's my TTT.

    P.S. I still can't publish a comment on your blog using my Wordpress credentials, I'm going to try Google and see if that works...

    1. well that fixed it! Must be a WordPress issue. Weird.

      Delete
    2. You know, I've had a lot of trouble commenting on WP blogs too the last few days, I wonder if there's just some disconnect between blogger and WP accounts right now? No idea. But thank you for being persistent and commenting. :)

      Oh and I read What Did Alice Know and it was pretty good! My review will be up in the next couple of weeks I think? I'm kind of scheduled out right now, I wanted it up sooner...

  24. The Valiant has been on mine for a while also, but just haven't gotten there. Song of the Current is one I've been wanting to read also, it sounds great. The only one I've read is Hitchhiker's Guide, which was fun.
    And yeah, this week's really is a long title!

    1. Same here, I really want to read The Valiant. And I need to re-try Hitchhiker's Guide, everyone loves it!

    1. Yeah. I started it once and never finished (which is probably heresy in the book blog world) :):) but I aim to try it again!

  26. I think I read that Runaways graphic novel. I've read almost all of those. They were fun!

    Replies
    1. Yeah I like Runaways but I think I stopped after Vol 5- not because I disliked it but I think I just never got around to buying the next one?

  27. The Valiant was a lot of fun! I mean, who doesn't enjoy a gladiatrix story? :D I've heard so many mixed things about Barbary Station but still haven't tried it for myself yet.

    1. Right? I NEED to read The Valinat stat! And Barbary Station...sigh... I tried with that one, I really did, got pretty far but was just... bored??

    1. I keep hearing a ton of good things about Valiant!

  34. Yup... Hitchhiker's is still on my list too. I'm starting to get concerned that I should have made a top two hundred list after seeing everyone else's posts!!

    Replies
    1. I know, right? And Hitchhiker's should be at the TOP of my list, I've heard so many good things!

  35. Read Hitchhiker's!!! I think you'd like it. Douglas Adams' humor is so very British and a bit bizarre. Plus it's a short book and not particularly deep.

    ReplyDelete

    1. It totally seems like something I'd like, I usually like a little humor in my sci-fi, I don't know what my problem was when I tried it before lol. I will be trying it again though

  36. I haven't read any of those but I hope you get a chance to read them. I am curious about a few of them.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I totally chucked at your comment about the title, because I thought the same exact thing this week. I don't know why I thought you had read Wild Bird. Maybe you had just talked about getting the book? The Vault of Dreamers! I went to the release tour for this one, and yep, still unread (but not sure why).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I know right? And I've been listing Wild Bird on my Sunday Posts for a while as "upcoming" ha ha, so that's probably why. I just need to get to it!!

  38. As usual I have not heard of most of these, but I do hope you get to enjoy them soon!

  42. I have meant to pick up Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy but have never gotten around to it...it’s that pecky giant TBR. I may have to check out The Runaways too. We just started watching the Hulu series and it has caught my attention

    1. I started Hitchhiker's once and got sidetracked, so technically I DNF'd it? But I'm going to try again.

  43. You're brave, I don't even want to think about all the books I have on my TBR. lol

    ReplyDelete
  44. What? The Hitchhiker's Guide? What are you waiting for? You will love it. My TTT TBR list

    ReplyDelete
  45. I was just about to say, wasn't Barbary Station boring?! Just... keep it as a DNF. Kick it off your TBR. I liked Vault and Song of the Current- didn't *love* but solidly liked. And we have discussed The Wood. Hell, kick that off too. I liked it but I have decided it is best to be ruthless with TBRs, it's my new plan. And will you read The Valiant already!? It is so good. I mean, gladiatrices! I need to read the sequel though so I suppose I am not one to talk hahah.

    Replies
    1. Yes I think Barbary Stn is done for. I just can't. Booooring. Vault I started and I like it so far, but This Fallen Prey just came out and I'm dropping everything for that. Actually I'll read them concurrently, which I hate to do, but... whatevs. Book blogger problems :)

      Gladiatrices *nods* I need to read The Valiant, clearly.

      Delete
  46. I've got several of these on my list. Oh, I didn't know you had DNF'ed Barbary Station! That's one I still have to read as well, but I've been seeing mixed ratings.

  47. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one of those books that I feel just about everyone has read except me, lol. I don't even think it's on my Goodreads TBR; if not, I need to fix that!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Lol, that is a pretty long blog title! I don't think I've written anything longer, but you never know. I don't have any of these books in my TBR. I don't think I've ever gone back to a DNF ever either. I hope it works out for you! :)

    1. I know?? I don't usually go back to DNF's either, and to be honest I just want to move on, but I guess if I get bored... ? :)

  49. Forgot to say, I hope you love This Fallen Prey as much as I did! The town off the grid is a really neat concept to me, too! Sometimes I want to live up there, of course with my Kindle pre-loaded with about a thousand books and a solar charger! Lol. I can't wait to hear your reaction, Greg!

    1. Oh I just started This Fallen Prey today, only two chapters in, and I'm alread hooked. That series just works for me so much! And yes there are times I want to live there too, off the grid. As long as there's no hostiles around :)

  50. I also really need to get to Song of the Current - I've got high hopes!

    I just read The Valiant the other day and I really enjoyed it but was tight on my star rating. (3) My review will be up soon.

    It's been YEARS since I read HitchHiklers. I need to pick that one up again.

    Chat soon!

  51. I had to start and restart The Valiant a few times too but I ended up quite liking it.

  52. I have heard great things about The Valiant, though I have not read it. I`m also quite sad that I have not read The hitchhiker`s Guide To The Galaxy, as I`ve found the movie quite funny.
