Note: This time of year is always very busy for me. Last year, I hadn't really started blogging yet, so I was able to keep myself above the craziness. This year, I am. My blog is slightly inactive due to the holiday craze. Hopefully will return to the regular posting after the new year. :)

Top Ten Tuesday (5)





Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome people over at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's theme is:
 Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me

Yikes. Here goes.




10. Need by Carrie Jones

This one's not as commonly talked about, I guess. I own a copy, have for a while, but I ended up getting distracted by another book and I just haven't picked it back up. Maybe I'll try to join a readathon and get this one done then.








9. Matched by Ally Condie

A lot, a LOT, of people have read this one, but I just haven't heard anyone talk about it to the point where I feel like I absolutely need to read it. I've heard people say they "liked it" and even that they "loved it," but it feels like a hollow promise. No one's really given me a reason why they loved it.


Another one of my friends has read this and said it felt like she was re-reading some other dystopian books, which is not good.






8. Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Yes, this is a sequel. Yes, the THIRD book comes out soon. No, I haven't read it yet. 

After I read Hush, Hush, I was kind of worried about the sequel. I didn't really feel like it needed another book and I was afraid that the second book would totally ruin the story for me. A friend of mine had the same fear. A different one has read both and agreed that it wasn't nearly as good.



7. Torment by Lauren Kate


Almost the exact same story as the above book. I liked the first one a lot, but I don't want to read it just yet, because I don't really feel like Fallen needed the sequel. Maybe it did a bit more than Hush, Hush, but I still don't think it needed one.












6. Invincible Summer by Hannah Moskowitz


I want to read this one. The issue being that I can't get a my hands on a copy. I live in an eenie teenie little town. We don't have a bookstore. My selection amounts to the one shelf of old YA books at my library, my school library, which isn't much better, the book section of Walmart, and the occasional order off amazon, which this might not be the best idea to order, since my parents have to see what I'm ordering and the bikini cover is something I'd rather avoid explaining. I don't have an issue with the cover, but I don't particularly want to shove it in my parents' face, either. I'm waiting for an out-of-town trip to a bookstore. Haha. 

5. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand


Own a copy. Still want to read this one. Not really sure why I haven't gotten around to it yet.




Readathon book?










4. Paranormalcy by Kierstin White




Another book that I want to read, just can't get my hands on. It's on my ordering-offline list.














3. If I Stay by Gayle Forman


I own it. I just don't know why I haven't read it yet. 


I'm a procrastination queen. 














2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins


It's on my ordering list, up next! PROMISE. Don't kill me.


















1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins


Don't hurt me! I think Suzanne Collins is brilliant. I love her writing style, but this book just ended up making me... uncomfortable.


I've tried to read it several times now, but I put it down every time. I hope that I can either get into these or Suzanne will write something else that catches my attention.











Now, please excuse me while I go hide from many, many raving fans of these ten books. I'LL READ THEM, I PROMISE.

If I Stay is one of my all time favorite books! That one should go to the top of your list. :)
