Top Ten Tuesday (87)

This week's topic is top ten hyped books I've never read.  Oh boy.  This one's gonna get me in trouble.  I think I've mentioned a time or two on here that I am the absolute worst at reading the big books.  Now, I've gotten better than I used to be, but there are still books on this list that I'm sure are going to make y'all mad at me.  (Backs away slowly) Here goes nothing...

Oh man, I really don't want to admit to this first one.

I'm trying to put off reading this until The Raven King comes out and I can read them all together.  I've heard nothing but raves from everyone, but I'm so trying to wait.  With each new tumblr post I see about it I feel my resolve wavering.

Another one that I've heard great things about, but just haven't gotten to yet.

I don't even really want to read this one, but I do see it hyped all over the place and it's always on endcaps at work.

Been sitting on this one for a long time.

I've had the ARC of this since before it came out, but I heard some mixed reviews somewhere along the way and it put me off.  I made the decision a while ago that I really wanted to check it out anyway, but just haven't picked it up yet.

My sister has been recommending this one to me forever now.

I swore up and down that I read this forever ago, but when I made my sister describe the plot to me it didn't sound familiar at all.  What is going on in my crazy head?

This is another recommendation from my sister.  And it's Meg Cabot, hello.

I will read this before the movie comes out.  (Which I think looks great, by the way.  I so love Cara and I think she's going to be awesome in it.)

I've heard great things about Graceling, I've met Kristin Cashore, and I still haven't read this.

Alright, I've survived.  I'm ready for you guys to bring on the yelling...


  1. Great list. We have a lot of similar books on our list! But you need to read Graceling!!! Seriously. Go. Do it.

  2. There are so many great books on your list! I just finished Paper Towns and it was pretty good-- I'm so excited for the movie to come out! I read Shatter Me and really enjoyed it but haven't read the rest of the series yet (the same with The Selection; though I just purchased the sequel!). Cinder is soo good but you might want to wait for Winter because seriously, I don't know how I am waiting for the next book. I haven't read Graceling but everyone says great things about it! Happy reading!

    Check out my Top Ten Tuesday!

  3. Great list! I'm reading the Lunar Chronicles (Cinder) at the moment and they're great! Paper Towns was okay, but not John Green's best, I don't think. And The Raven Boys books are on my list too!

    Here's my Top Ten Tuesday.

  4. I love the Graceling and Cinder series, like Papertowns and Daughter of Smoke and Bones, and probably need to read the other books on your list. I read Perks of being a Wallflower a long time ago, and don't remember it either!

  5. I really liked the Legend series. I haven't read The Selection series either or Daughter of Smoke and Bone but I have heard good things about both and hope to read them soon!
