Top Ten Tuesday (77)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists

This weeks topic is Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read Yet. Well, technically it was per genre, but I couldn't come up with very many of those. Unfortunately, I could come up with plenty of ones for this topic.

  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore-This book is always the first one that comes to mind when I think of books I haven't read. I've owned it for years and have heard nothing but great things. I honestly have no idea why I still haven't read it. Maybe I'll get to it this year?
  • The Book Thief by Marcus Zuzak-I know, I know, I can't believe it either. So many people say this is their favorite book. But I actually have a reason for this one. I want the pretty U.K. edition, and it's not sold in stores here. Okay, that may be a crappy reason. I'm picky.
  • The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness-Yet again, this is so many people's favorites. And I own it. I think I'm just a little intimidated because I know it will probably take over my life and kill my feels. But what's wrong with that?
  • Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan-I probably should have read this back when I was first reading John Green's books. So much time has passed since then and I still haven't read this one. I still think it sounds interesting so I'm not sure what the hold up is.
  • The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson-I wanted to read this as soon as I heard about it. Now all three books are out and I still haven't gotten my hands on it. I've also had more than one opportunity to buy them and get them signed. Still haven't. Maybe I will for North Texas Teen?
  • Vortex by Julie Cross-I read Tempest ages ago and absolutely loved it. And the ending sucked. So I really don't know how I survived not buying this one sooner.
  • The Liberator by Victoria Scott-Tori is one of my favorite people and The Collector was definitely one of my favorites, too. You see, I bought this book, got it signed, gave it to a friend, and still haven't gotten it back. I should have asked for it or just bought another one by now but I'm a chicken. A sad chicken.
  • Eve by Anna Carrey-I bought this and got it signed quite a while ago and still haven't read it. Seems like the story of my life.
  • The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey-I got an ARC of this and really wanted to read it. Now the second one it out and I've heard such amazing things. Maybe the movie coming out will make me finally pick it up?
  • The Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead-Okay, technically, I've read the first two and I'm reading the second one, but I really can't believe I didn't read this series years ago. Better late than never, right?
That's my ten this week. I'm kind of sad now. Hopefully by the end of the year this list will be much shorter. Maybe it will be gone. We'll see!
