Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by the Broke and the Bookish!
So, this week’s TTT is a freebie, so I chose a topic very close to my heart. We bloggers are used to our TBR lists being out of control – that’s normal! However, it is our CHOICE to make the list of books we need to review get out of control as well, and I have so definitely done so. So, I figure, I can tell you guys all about the books I need to get around to and maybe y’all can provide some encouragement or sympathy. Or, you know, laugh at me. (All title links go to Goodreads.)
1. Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill
I don’t want to tell you how long I’ve had this one from NetGalley. However, since it isn’t published til November, I keep pushing it back in favor of reviews I have to get done first! Still, can’t wait to read this one. Sounds so good!
2. Mystic City by Theo Lawrence
This one isn’t so bad, because I did just get this from Edelweiss like yesterday. But still, I never should have requested it in the first place. Yet, I did. And I’m not sad about it at all. I’m way too intrigued by this.
Scholastics bombarded me on NetGalley the other day with THREE different review acceptances, when I’d requested the books all at different times. Oh how I’m not a fan of that. I already finished one of them, but I’ve still got this one and…
4. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE I HAVE THIS. Just … eeeek! I’m dying to get started on this one, since it’s next in my que to go! 😀
5. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne Valente
This one begins the books that isn’t from NetGalley or Edelweiss, but it’s still really important I read this one soon. Why? I’M GOING TO MEET THE AUTHOR. (Don’t worry, I’ll tell you guys all about it.) Speaking of which…
This is another author I’m going to be meeting, at the same event as Catherynne Valente. I’m going, by the way, to the Alpha Fantasy, Scifi and Horror Writing Workshop for Young Writers. It takes place in Pennsylvania and is SPECTACULARLY AWESOME. I will also be meeting John Joseph Adams and Tamora Pierce there.
I got this in a book swap a few weeks ago for good reason: Holly Black, Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan are doing a book signing in my area! I’ve read her stuff before, but I don’t own any of it, so I had to make sure I get on that. Oh, and actually reading this would be nice. Not to mention…
This one as well! Thank you Vivien (@deadtossedwaves on Twitter) for making this possible! 😀
9. Morning Star by Desiree Finkbeiner
You guys may or may not remember that I interviewed Desiree a few months ago! Well, she also gave me an ecopy of her book the read and review at my leisure, and I’d like to make my leisure NOW because I’ve been dying to read this since she sent me the blurb! Still just haven’t gotten there, though.
10. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck
Got this for my birthday because I’ve been dying to read it for FOREVER. I’m still taking my sweet time getting around to it, though! I wish I read so much faster.
BONUS ROUND! (Otherwise known as where I show you how insane I really am.)
Rounding out my have-but-need-to-read-list on Goodreads are:
Ten Thousand Saints by Eleanor Henderson ~ Chime by Franny Billingsley ~ Tortall and Other Lands by Tamora Pierce ~ Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray ~ The Iron King by Julie Kagawa ~ Crescent Dawn by Clive Cussler ~ Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick ~ Melting Stones by Tamora Pierce

I do the same thing, push back reading netgalley books with later dates in favor of books coming out earlier.
So pumped about Raven Boys and Meant To Be!!
It’s almost the only thing you CAN do, but then these books you really want to read keep getting slid backwards. >.<
ME TOO! 😀
I just started Fairyland last night. Tell you what…how ’bout since I’m reading the book…how ’bout I GET TO MEET THE AUTHOR?!
Top Ten Books on Happiness. Please stop by!
Great topic and list – I enjoyed reading it and your reasoning.
If I had MEANT TO BE or MYSTIC CITY I’d probably skip driving school today and just read. XD

I’m basically doing NOTHING but sitting in my chair and reading, doing just that. 😛 Well, except for yesterday and today. I had scuba diving!
Such a wonderful choice for Top Ten Picks for today! I am going to add stuff from here!
Here is my Top Ten post!
Such a great TTT topic that I’m sure many of us can relate to. Mystic City and Meant to Be are waiting to be read on my kindle and they both look fantastic! The Raven Boys looks like a good one too.
You absolutely MUST read the Iron Fey series!!! Don’t put it off any longer!!! But saying that, Tiger’s Curse has been my list forever and I still haven’t got to it yet, either.
I really enjoyed Tiger’s Curse. Such a fun series. Hope you enjoy it! I also need to read The Girl who Circumnavigated…
My Top Ten
Mystic city, magisterium & the girl ….. look so good ❤
I get excited to read anything Maggie Steifvater. Must get ahold of Raven Boys…and doesn’t it figure that the holds system at my library is being suuuuper sloooow about the Kij Johnson books I ordered? I’ve only gotten to read her short story in the “Secret World of Fantasy” anthology.
So far, I think it’s her best book yet! I decided to buy Fudoki so I could get it signed at the very least. At this rate, don’t know if I’ll be able to read it!
Meant to Be is on my to-review list too. I’m actually really excited to read that one. Great list.
