Top Ten Tuesday

Posted on: March 19, 2013

I have been wanting to hop in to Top Ten Tuesday for awhile and I think this week is the perfect time since I just finished going through my books. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where each week, on Tuesday, there is a new list that is book related. This week is:

Top Ten Books I HAD to Buy…But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

  1.  Life of Pi by Yann Martel. I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet, but I hope I will read it sooner than later!
  2.  The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I’ve heard so many good things about this book and I was very excited to find it in my local used bookstore. I need to read this soon to see what all the hype is about.
  3.  Splintered by A.G. Howard. This book definitely pulled me in because of it’s cover. However, I have also heard great things about this book. I am anxiously awaiting the moment when I pick this book up and read it.
  4.   Casino Royale by Ian Fleming. I have been a James Bond fan for a majority of my life and just recently found out that they were based on books. After figuring that out I had to run out and by the first one immediately. I need to read this book so I can watch the movie again.
  5.  Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. I heard about this book a long time ago and then I came across it in the store and had to buy it. I have been waiting for more books with characters that are my age (college age) and I’m so excited about this New Adult genre coming about. I can’t wait to start reading the books starting with this one!
  6.  A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin. I bought this one when  I finished A Game of Thrones because I had to know what happened next! However, I’ve been a little intimidated by it’s length, so I haven’t read it yet, but I’m hoping to get to it this summer.
  7.  Every Day by David Levithan. I have loved all the books I have read by David Levithan and when I read the book blurb with this new one I had to get it. I am very excited to have it and I cannot wait to read it!
  8.  Crewel by Gennifer Albin. I heard about this book and it sounded so unique. I equally fell in love with the cover and therefore I had to go out and buy it. Unfortunately I just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet but I am really looking forward to reading this book!
  9.  Rift by Andrea Cremer. I absolutely loved the Nightshade series and when I found out about this prequel series I had to get it. However I have been wanting to re-read the Nightshade series before I pick this one up. I might have to just pick it up and read it before then though.
  10.  The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I know, I know, I am completely ridiculous because I haven’t read this book yet. I had a stack of library books that I was reading through when I picked this book up (I bought it because I just HAD to have it). Then some library books I requested came in so I got another stack of library books to read. But once I am done reading the library books this will be one of the first books I pick up – SO excited to read this one!

Making this list has gotten me excited about these books again and given me motivation to just read them already! Well back to reading so I can get to these books… : )
