I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday they post their top ten lists on different bookish topics.
This week is all about the books on our shelves we've been meaning to read, but just haven't gotten to it yet.
"The Maze Runner" by James Dashner: After reading The Hunger Games all I wanted was more dystopian and this was one of the books recommended to me. I had every intention of reading it pretty soon after I got it, but then I had some bad experiences with other dystopians I had gotten also and this one is still sitting on the shelf.
"The Demon Trapper's Daughter" by Jana Oliver: I really want to read this one and everyone says great things about it, but there are just so many books to read and this one keeps getting lower in the pile. Shame on me, I know.
"Vesper" by Jeff Sampson: When I first got my e-reader, I bought a crazy amount of books for it. It's not that I don't think this one looks good, it's just one of so many on my TBR that I haven't gotten around to it just yet.
"Glimmerglass" by Jenna Black: There is no logical explanation for me buying this one, since I don't read faery books. I dont know why, I just can't get myself to want to read them. However, this one was a super deal for my Nook and it had some really good reviews, so I figured why not? Of course, I still haven't read it yet, so... I was convinced to read The Iron Fey series, though, and I actually liked them. So who knows, maybe I'll get around to other faery books some day.
"Wings" by Aprilynne Pike: See "Glimmerglass".
"Wicked Lovely" by Melissa Marr: See "Glimmerglass".
"Cryer's Cross" by Lisa McMann: I picked this one up on sale at the bookstore and I'm really looking forward to read it, but like so many others, this one has got a bunch that have weaseled their way in ahead of it.
"Minder" by Kate Kaynak: I am always forgetting I have this one. I think it sounds really cool and I am definitely planning on getting to it soon.
"Atlas Shrugged" by Ayn Rand: I've had this book on my shelf since I was in high school. I keep meaning to read it, but GUYS! It's so big! And the writing is so small, it gives me a headache thinking about it. Does that make me a lazy reader?
"Frozen (Skinned)" by Robin Wasserman: This was another one I bought when I first got my e-reader. I will read it eventually, I just don't know when eventually is right now.
