Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish to highlight a top ten list related to book blogging, and to get to know fellow book bloggers.
Quick and dirty TTT today, guys – I’m super busy with work and haven’t been sleeping or doing anything else much lately.
My embarrassing overarching excuse for not having gotten to to these earlier is that I got way too excited requesting ARCs in my first year as a blogger that I’ve gotten a bit bogged down. Rookie mistake. I’m really hoping to change that as this blog goes on.
In no particular order:
1. Throne of Glass by S.J. Maas – I read so many amazing reviews, and I was super excited to try fantasy for the first time, and…nothing.
2. Meant to Be by Lauren Morill – It’s a contemp, it’s a romance, why, why, why have I not read this yet?
3. The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson – I think the reason I haven’t read this is because it’s not in my wheelhouse, even though I adore Maureen’s writing. I should just trust her and go with it.
4. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson – Morgan’s debut, Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour, is what inspired me to start writing again. I LOVED it. I think the reason I haven’t read SCS yet is because it’s heavy to carry around? #dumbreason
5. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen – The jokes keep coming. I’m a huge Janeite and I haven’t read one of her seminal works.
6 & 7. The Anti-Prom & Getting Over Garrett Delaney by Abby McDonald – Abby is one of my favourite authors. I’m constantly telling everyone about Sophomore Switch and the upcoming Jane Austen Goes to Hollywood. WHY?!
8, 9, & 10. The Last Summer of You and Me, My Name is Memory & 3 Willows by Ann Brashares – Same story, same horrible guilt.
Guys, the worst thing about this post is that I have at least ten more books I could have put on this list. I’ll save you the despair and guilt.
I'm sooo guilty of doing this! Many are the same as yours. I'm a book hoarder!
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson was quite entertaining, hope you enjoy it when you do eventually read it 😀
My Top Ten
Have a great week!
I have lots of book guilt as well *hangs head in shame* The Name of the Star is on my list too! I'm looking forward to reading it.
I'm really happy to know I'm not the only person that does this!
It's so easy to get bogged down. I've been feeling a bit of pressure to read faster, but alas I'm taking one book at a time. As for your list-yeah Mansfield Park is one I've tried to read, but just can't get into it. I don't know why.
Jessica @ Literary, etc
I've read My Name is Memory and I'm not really smitten by it. But who knows, maybe YOU will enjoy it. 🙂 Good luck with your list and happy reading!
Here's my TTT
ooh you have to read Throne of Glass. It's one of my favourites.
I have Meant to Be as well to read. I was sucked in by its gorgeous cover!
I just finished The Madness Underneath and was very disappointed, I enjoyed In The Name of The Star though… I would say if you have better books to wait on it. Throne of Glass has been sitting on my kindle for a while now 🙂
Ashley @ The Quiet Concert
Great list, I have Thrones of Glass on my TBR pile as well. Happy reading!
I listening (via audiobook) to The Name of the Star right now, and really enjoying it. But I am a sucker for creepy books. I've also read Meant to Be which was cute. I didn't love it as much as I was expecting, but it was still great. Thanks for sharing, and happy reading 🙂
Throne of Glass is sitting on my shelf collecting dust as we speak. And I am STILL looking forward to reading it. No idea WHY I haven't done it yet.
Meant to be was an adorable read, it was just an overall cute contemporary and was light, whenever you are in the mood for that I definitely recommend picking that one up!
Kristin @ Young Adult Book Haven
Really interesting pick. I haven't heard of it before. Thanks for sharing.
Mine would be Grave Mercy, Shadow and Bone, and Seraphina! I had to have them and they are still sitting on my TBR pile waiting to be read! Great post!
Iron King has been sitting on my shelf for quite some time now. I seriously need to read it.
Well the entire A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin keeps mocking me everyday whenever I see it on my desk haha
Throne of Glass is still on my shelf, too. And I am still super excited about it. I have no idea why I have yet to read it? Meant To Be, Second Chance Summer and Getting Over Garrett DeLaney are all on my list, but not my shelf!
I am guilty of having books on shelf unread! You should read Throne of Glass, I haven't read it, but I have heard many good reviews!
[…] if I didn’t like it? What if I did and bawled so much that I would never be the same? So I kept putting this book on my list, every year, some years when I was actually at a lake house. I was determined to read it…but […]
