Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books We Can’t Believe We Haven’t Read

February 3, 2015 Features, Top Ten Tuesday 12


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s theme is:

Top Ten Books We Can’t Believe We Haven’t Read

This week’s theme was a bit hard to complete because there are just so many books we haven’t read that we really want to, but haven’t for myriads of reasons. However, we went through the trial of having to choose five each, and now you shall share with us the burden of all these beauties our eyes haven’t had the grace of gazing upon. Enjoy!

Marianne’s Choices:

It was really hard to choose only 5, but I’m happy to say that I chose very wisely. The Winner’s Curse was one of the first ones to pop into my head, because I FREAKING HAVE IT ON MY BOOKSHELF and I have no idea why I haven’t read it. I hope to fix that this year. Meant to Be sounds like a totally cute contemporary, and I love contemporaries, so what has been holding me back? Laziness. Stolen Songbird… If I don’t read this book this year I will have a heart attack (not literally). I really NEED to read this book. At least 3-4 people recommend it to me a week. A WEEK. I can’t believe I haven’t read it. Shadow and Bone is another book I’ve had on my bookshelf for almost more than a year and I still haven’t gotten around to it. Oops. Written in Red.. I actually borrowed this one from the library a couple of weeks ago… and then forgot about it and had to return it unread. *sigh* So hopefully I’ll read this one next time I borrow it.

Jennifer’s Choices:

Pride and PrejudiceAlienated (Alienated, #1)Of Triton (The Syrena Legacy, #2)This Shattered World (Starbound, #2)Autumn Rose (The Dark Heroine, #2)

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: Seen movies and series and even a comic, yet haven’t read the original work. I am such a shame. But I WILL read it before this year ends. Mark my words.

Alienated by Melissa Landers: Not because I don’t want to, but because I haven’t been able to buy it and I haven’t bought anything from the internet as of lately. I’ve wanted it since it came out, and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

Of Triton by Anna Banks: Excuses excuses. I have it, and since I feel that I have to reread Of Poseidon (I read it a while ago), I get this horrible lazyness and say I’ll read it later.

This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner: Money, thou art a wicked demon that elopes with bookstores and unavailability.

Autumn Rose (The Dark Heroine #2) by Abigail Gibbs: Lack of time and lack of possession. I loved the first from when it was just a story in Wattpad and it got published, yet I haven’t gotten to find ways to buy it, even though I have seen it (which is odd). Maybe because it isn’t that much about the other two main characters of the previous book and more about a new character. Oh well.

  • You have to read Shadow & Bone! 😀

  • I read Shadow and Bone over the Christmas holidays and then just HAD to marathon the rest of the series. It was amazing!

  • shootingstarsmag

    I really do want to read Shadow and Bone; I’m very curious. I also want to read Written in Red. There are SO many books I can’t believe I haven’t read yet. hah


  • Yay safe to say I can tick a few I’ve read off your list but there are still so many I haven’t read as well. Specifically Leigh Bardugo’s series. It’s even right up my reading alley…I don’t know why I haven’t bought a copy yet?!

  • I haven’t read Meant to Be either! Something tells me I should soon. 🙂

  • You are not alone. I haven’t read those books either.

  • High Five, girls! Because I haven’t read those neither. hahahaha my ttt<3

  • Marianne, you MUST read Winner’s Curse and Shadow and Bone, MUST. I loved P&P and can’t wait to read Alienated. Nice picks!

  • I’ve read all of Marianne’s choices except Meant to Be which looks like contemporary and I don’t read that genre really.

    Jennifer’s choices I’ve only read Of Triton and This Shattered World. I hope you are both able to get around to reading them all!!

  • Many of these I can’t believe I haven’t read either! Too many books, too little time *sigh* I hope you enjoy reading all your picks when you get to them eventually!

  • The Winner’s Curse, Stolen Songbird and Shadow and Bone (especially the latter) were good reads! Both TWC and SS had such a lovely writing!
    Pride and Prejudice is MUST read ;D Alienated was okay though, entertaining but nothing more, really 😛

  • haha I’ve only read two of the books on this list (P&P and Winner’s Curse), both of which are amazing you should both read them! Lots of others like S&B, Stolen Songbird, Alienated, This Shattered World are on my TBR. I can’t believe some of the books I haven’t read. Epic fail.
