Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Yay lists! This week's topic is Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy... But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread. Ahhh, the guilty list. I have WAY too many books on my shelf that still need to be read.
1. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: I know this one wasn't even released too long ago but the level of excitement I had for it warrants it being on this list, I think. I couldn't stop bouncing for WEEKS and then I just dumped it on to a shelf. I'll be back for you, my pretty <3
2. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: Sonia, what???? I don't know what's wrong with me. I LOVED Delirium and Lauren Oliver is one of my favourite authors. SO WHY WON'T I JUST READ IT ALREADY???
3. Crossed by Ally Condie: I loved Matched and pre-ordered this one (something that's pretty rare for me). Then I read a couple of bad reviews and I think I was a little nervous... but maybe like almost a year and a half is enough time for that to stop me? SERIOUSLY.
4. Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev: I was SO unbelievably excited for this one from the summary and I still am! I just need to make some time for it (and uh, remember that it exists when I go to choose my next book, I'm terrible at that).
5. The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann: Harry Potter + Hunger Games. If that's not enough to make me read a book, I don't know what is. And yet, here we are...
6. The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton: Another pre-order! Okay, I was buzzing for this book for months. I was already partying with my bookmarks, postcards and button which, at the time, was such an exciting novelty. I will have to read this one SOON!
7. Entwined by Heather Dixon: I think this cover was enough to make me want to try out the book but then I heard about the plot. AHHH! HOW have I not read this already with a beautifully-sounding plot AND to-die-for cover.
8. Fateful by Claudia Gray: I don't know what it is about the Titanic + werewolves but even now, that concept gives me some thrill. I am really, really curious to see if it works for the book and really, really regretting that I haven't already done so.
9. The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima: This is probably one of the most guilty books on the list because not only do I own the first one, I own ALL OF THEM. And it's fantasy. And everyone seems to love them. And it's fantasy. Did I mention it's fantasy?
