Top Ten Tuesday (24)

Top Ten Books I Had to Buy but are Still Sitting on My Shelf


1. The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa- I loved, loved, loved The Iron Fey and The Immortal Rules so I knew I would love The Lost Prince. Unfortunately, every time I went to start it I found myself having to read something else. I still really, really want to read it because I know I'll love it I just have to find the time!

2. Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally- I think this one actually came in the same shipment as The Lost Prince. I really want to read this one because Catching Jordan was really cute. I'm still really looking forward to this one!

3. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo- I bought this one because the Fierce Reads tour was coming near me and I wanted to get everyone that was coming books signed. I have heard nothing but good things about this one and am going to have to read it soon.

4. Entwined by Heather Dixon- This is one I bought as an ebook. It was on sale for .99 or $1.99 I think. I had been wanting the book for a while because well, I'll admit it...I loved the cover. I figured that was an excellent price so I just had to buy it!

5. Struck by Jennifer Bosworth- Another book I bought for the Fierce Reads tour. I'm still hoping to get to it!

6. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green- When I saw that the first editions were going to be signed I knew I had to buy a copy before they ran out! I bought a copy of it but still haven't gotten to it. I did buy the audio version for $4.95 on audible recently so hopefully I'll be able to listen to it soon!

7. The Probability of Miracles by Wendy Wunder- I was in Books-A-Million one day browsing around. I didn't have a particular book to buy in mind (shocking). All I knew was that I wanted a sad book. My friend and I began looking through the shelves searching for the perfect sad book. Finally, we decided on this one. I'm not even positive it's sad but just by looking at the description I think it's a safe bet! Somehow, after getting the book home it ended up on my shelf where it has stayed ever since. 

8. Wither by Lauren DeStefano This is one that I bought for someone else during the Broke and Bookish Secret Santa two years ago. The book sounded really good and I just had to buy myself a copy as well. Still, on a shelf it sits.

9. Graveminder by Melissa Marr- I was such a huge fan of her Wicked Lovely series that I just had to buy her first adult book Graveminder. Maybe I'll get to it eventually!

10. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand- This was another discounted ebook I had to buy. What can I say I'm a sucker for discounted ebooks...even if I already own a hard copy!! This one I'm really hoping to get to soon because I have heard such great things about this series. Extra bonus: All of the book are OUT!!!

What about you??

  3. I Just bought The Fault in Our Stars - but had to put Looking For Alaska on my list since I've owned it longer :) I can't believe I haven't read any John Green after all the rave reviews I hear of him... but I will get to it!

  4. The only one I've read off your list is THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, which I adored. It made me buy PAPER TOWNS, which I haven't gotten around to yet. I don't know why, since I'm pretty sure I'm going to love it. I just need more time in the day to read, you know??

  5. Lol of all the ones I own from this list, I've at least read them. Wither was pretty good, but I wouldnt put it at the top of your list. I just finished the second in the series, which was a little better and I'm looking forward to the last. Great list, hope you get to them soon.

  6. Same here for Unearthly!!!
    I hope you like Wither/The Chemical Garden series! I feel like it had its bumps in the road, but overall I really did like the whole series, which is more than I can say for quite a few, sadly!

    I definitely recommend Stealing Parker -- so good!

  8. I still need to read the Iron Fey series. They seem very popular so I just know they are something that needs to be checked out. Shadow and Bone as well as The Probability of Miracles are on my shelf, waiting too. Unearthly, Wither and The Fault of Our Stars are all books I love! I hope you get around to some of these soon!

    Thanks for stopping by my post!
