Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely people at The Broke and the Bookish. This week is a freebie. Usually this freedom would fill me with dread at the thought of making a decision but I recently made a list of old TTT posts in my journal that I’m going to post about so I picked one of those. I decided to list 10 books that I think everyone except me has read. Whilst I’m sure that’s not literally the case, these are all books that I think I’m in the minority with for not having read (yet)!
1. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
I own this book so there is absolutely no reason at all for me not having read it yet! I’ve heard wonderful things about this book.
2. Landline by Rainbow Rowell
I feel like I’m one of the few people in the YA universe not to have read all of Rowell’s books yet. I’ve read the others but I need to read this one soon.
3. ACOTAR and ACOMAF by Sarah J. Maas
I know, I know. In fact (as you will soon disover – see below), I have never read anything by Sarah J. Maas. I am sure this fact is simply unthinkable for some YA bloggers but despite owning both of these (cover love), I’ve still not read either of them!
4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
(See above). I got a copy of this in a trade last year but I still don’t know if I’ll ever actually read this series. Is it worth it? Especially now I am so many books behind on it!
5. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
Yet another YA series that I thought I might get to in 2016 but didn’t. I think I will read this series one day but I just haven’t done that yet…
6. The Sin Eater’s Daughter by Melinda Salisbury
Okay so I bought this and the second book in the trilogy just after Christmas and I am definitely planning on reading them this year. One of my trusty blogger friends loves these books and I also happen to know that Melinda herself is fab. I don’t need to be told twice to read this soon!
7. Red Rising by Pierce Brown
I can’t remember why I didn’t read this last year, I know I bought it and got really excited and then I just didn’t get to it. (Can you see a pattern here?!) I’ve heard that this trilogy is worth a read.
8. We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
It is difficult to think of a reason why I haven’t read standalones yet…. Especially ones that I own two copies of. Oh dear. Anyway, I’ve heard great things about this book!
9. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
A lot of people over on Twitter are currently reading these books in preparation for the new release and I’m wondering if I should have joined them. I received this as a gift this year and I’m looking forward to reading it soon.
10. The Spinster Club by Holly Bourne
I am actually ashamed to say that I have not read these books yet. I actually may be the only human left in the bloggerverse that has not read these. Does it help that I bought them all last year after seeing Holly at YAShot? No? Well I guess I’ll read them this year. I hear nothing but praise for these and given recent events I feel that they will be relevant and inspiring.
So there they are, the books that I possibly should have already read. I think the worst part is that I own most of them so I am genuinely struggling to find reasons as to why I haven’t read them yet. I guess these will come in handy for my Beat the Backlist challenge!!
Do we have any books in common?
Are you outraged at any of the books I still haven’t read?!
