**Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and Bookish.**
So… this post had the potential to be quite long. I mean, I have way more than 10 books on my shelf that I bought because I wanted them so bad, and then just never got the chance to read. It’s sad, but true. It’s so hard when 20+ books are released each month but I’m unable to read fast enough to even meet half of them. Books get put on the back burner, yet I buy them because I KNOW I want to read them someday. I think this can be quite common in the book world, especially with bloggers. Here is a small sampling of mine.
Dude, it’s signed and personalized even. And there is sits… *sigh* It has such an awesome premise.
This seems to have a lot of really cool elements all together in one book, and perhaps may leave me needing a box of tissues? When the reviews started to come in, I immediately put it in my cart.
Uhhhh, it may or may not be the cover that first brought this one to my attention and made me rush out and buy it. But the premise sounds great too! 😉
I love memory loss storylines right now. This one seemed to have a great sense of action and suspense to it so I bought it straight away. It’s on my reading list for next month though. I am hoping I can keep to that.
I’m so embarrassed that this is still sitting on my TBR shelf. A most anticipated read, I pre-ordered a signed copy from her release party and had it shipped to me. Right about that time I found myself swamped with review books and had to set it aside.
The reviews have kind of been all over the place, but I had to buy a copy and see for myself. Maybe someday…
I’ve been wanting to read this for quite awhile. I love road trips. It sounds like a summertime read so maybe I’ll get to it then?
I think this may be one of the first parallel worlds novels that made my TBR. Since then many have joined the list, but I still haven’t had the chance to read this one.
I’ve heard many good things, I think this one just came out at a time when I needed a break from the Dystopian/Sci-fi genre.
I actually ordered a signed copy from the Dark Days tour. It really sounds awesome and like something I would greatly enjoy. I want to find time for this one soon.
I’m a little picky about fantasy because I often find myself having trouble staying on top of the world building in the beginning, but after a lot of rave reviews when it was released, I bought a copy.
Okay, I realize I am already at 12 on a Top TEN list, but I wanted to add just a few more, in the sequels department.
Okay, so Hush, Hush first caught my eye back when I wasn’t reading a lot of books. I had no idea where to find recommendations or anything. I was picking up Catching Fire at the time and saw the cover. I loved the angel concept so then I immediately pre-ordered Crescendo (Hush, Hush #2) and read that right away when it arrived. Fast forward a year from then… certain circumstances kept me from reading Silence at the time of release. I eventually won a signed copy but by that point I decided to wait for Finale, with the intentions of reading then both together. Yeah… it never happened. I want it to!
I loved the first book! I have no idea how I could let this one slip me by but unfortunately, it has. 🙁
Noah! Love him so much! Honestly, this one making this list makes me very sad. It was another that was just released at the wrong time for me, when I found myself swamped with review books.
Welp, that’s a small fraction of what lies on my shelf unread. And I didn’t even touch what was on my Nook. O_O It makes me really sad. The summer seems to be slower on releases so I’m really hoping I can read a few of these then.
