Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic was a freebie if we so wanted it to be so, and I had to do that, because I couldn’t come up with much for the other topic!
I am usually a voracious reader, but sometimes … I just can’t do it. Either I don’t have the time, or–EEK–for some reason I don’t have the interest. So here’s a list of books that I have but need to read!
1. City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare
I know, I know, I’m a HUGE Clare fangirl but I STILL haven’t read this. It’s disturbing. But I haven’t read City of Fallen Angels in such a long time I know I need to read it again but … I don’t want to. Reading past the original trilogy was a choice I made for myself knowing I would probably regret it, but… *sigh*
2. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Actually, I’ll be perfectly honest with you, I already started this one. However, the world is really hard to settle into for me, so it’s just sitting there, 30 pages in, STARING AT ME.
3. Chime by Franny Billingsley
I really am going to get around to this, I swear! I just have no reading oomph right now for some reason. And also I feel I should finish Under the Never Sky first.
4. Melting Stones by Tamora Pierce
It is utterly ridiculous how long I have had this book but left it unread. It is literally, horribly sad. I have THE HARDCOVER. But for some reason, I just can’t read it. I’ve been told it’s good and I believe you guys, but goodness. There’s just something repelling me every time I go near it.
5. Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray
Yet another one I’ve had for AGES and have still yet to read. I actually did start it, I think, but then I got sidetracked by Vicky Alvear Shecter’s Cleopatra’s Moon. I need to find some historical fiction that isn’t all about the same people. 😛
6. Crescent Dawn by Clive Cussler
This one isn’t entirely my fault. I bought this book for my dad for Christmas, and he still hasn’t read it yet either. Clearly my only plan of action is that I must wrestle it away from him whenever I have the time to tackle a Cussler book.
7. Glitch by Heather Anastasiu
This is actually something that, like Under The Never Sky, is sitting on my currently reading shelf. Unlike Under the Never Sky, I really do like it. The problem? I have no idea. But NetGalley probably wants my review. 😛
8. The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQueen
Have this from NetGalley. It’ll probably be my next NetGalley read and review after I finish Glitch. But I have to finish Glitch first. 😛
9. Otherkin by Nina Berry
NetGalley read and review after The Peculiars. My NetGalley read and review list is far too long. Watch this:
10. Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear
NetGalley read and review after Otherkin! Maybe I should, you know, get on that. Eventually. WHERE DID MY READING BUZZ GO? I think finals swallowed it. Here, finals buzz, here kitty kitty– Oh that’s not going to work.
So what about you? Have YOU got a book that’s been lying around forever you still haven’t read? Also, don’t forget to check out my Two Year Blogoversary Giveaway!
