Top Ten Tuesday: books I HAD to have and still haven't read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Every week the participants post their top ten to a specific topic.

This week is about the Top Ten books we just HAD to have... but are still sitting on the shelf unread.

I admit that I sometimes have that problem, but at the moment I'm actually not too bad with my physical books. I have unread ones but they weren't OMG I need this right now!!! books. But my kindle is a whole different story... my resistance to buying ebooks is much lower because of cheap deals and freebies. I could cry at all the awesome when I scroll through what I have and sort of want to read it all at once...

  1. My physical copy of Wither by Lauren DeStefano.
    I really want to start this series! But I bought this one in December and still haven't gotten to it somehow...

  2. My physical copy of Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter.
    I really enjoyed the first book and was annoyed when I had to wait for the matching paperback edition. But now I have the sequel problem, aka 'what the heck happened at the end of book 1 again?'

  3. Easy, by Tammara Webber
    I bought the ebook back before it was picked up by Penguin, but still haven't read it. In my ebook flood, I sort of forgot I owned it ^^' I hope to get to my many NA reads soon...

  4. Flight, by Alyssa Rose Ivy
    I actually have quite a few of her books! But I just haven't gotten around to them yet because of review books and because I tend to privilege printed ones.

  5. Untouched, by Jus Accardo
    There's really no excuse for not reading this one! It's a novella, for crying out loud!

  6. Fallen Too Far, by Abbi Glines
    Another one I really want to read after all those reviews! I feel like I only bought it a couple weeks ago, but now we're already waiting on book 3?!

  7. Dare You To, by Katie McGarry
    I was so excited when I got approved for it on NG! But I haven't gotten around to it yet. Soon though, since it's out in April!

  8. The Eternity Cure, by Julie Kagawa
    Same. Though I haven't had it that long.

  9. Masquerade, by Cambria Hebert
    I read the kindle sample and fell in love! I HAD to have it! But then review books happened and somehow I never seem to get to it >.<

  10. The Infernal Devices Manga
    I really wanted it as soon as the first volume collection was out! I mean, Will and Tessa to actually gaze at!!! But it's still unread. Even though I love manga. I'm weird...

So, that's it from me! What books you had to have like right this instant are still collecting dust on your shelves?


  1. So many great books and not enough time, right?

  2. ^ I agree with Deb. We all need more shelf space. :)

    And we have Easy in common. A lot of people have been gushing about that book that it's almost a torture not to read it. Hopefully we'll both get to that book this year. :) Good luck with your list and happy reading!

    Here's my TTT


  3. WHAT?!?! You have Dare You To!! I'm jelly! And you have to read Easy that book is made of pure awesome. Great list!

    Teresa @ Readers Live A Thousand Lives

    P.S.- I really like that moving picture thing you got going on there

  4. Easy is such a great book! I haven counter the arcs I've got or galleys. Oh goodness that'd be long. I have Dare You To as well :) We must read Wither soon I guess xD

    Great list :)

    PS. I'll probably steal these moving pics form you ;)

  5. I loved Wither! And I just finished the Eternity Cure a few days ago and it was awesome :) Love the list! I want to read many of these!

    My TTT!

  6. Great List! I have heard so much about Easy, The Internal Devices and Dare to You.

  7. Wither is a brilliant novel, its one of my favourites. The Author is so talented as is the rest of the series. I really recommend it.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    My Top Ten!

  8. Wither was good, but I felt that Fever, the sequel, was lacking what Wither had.
    And as for your Uncommon Criminals problem, I'll answer it for you, a HBA and Hale being hot and awesome! I mean, what else is there? ;D
    I have to read Easy too -looks at Easy lying in my TBR pile.-
    And Dare You To is out in April where you live?! I'm soo jealous, it comes out in June in the US. I would request it from NetGalley, but I don't have a very good ereader.
    And same with The Eternity Cure, I'm so looking forward to seeing your thoughts on it!
    And thanks for stopping by my TTT Carmen! (:

    1. Eep, you're right! I just checked and it really is out in June. Could have sworn it's April! Maybe it was moved backwards... anyhow, I got the US edition via NetGalley a couple months back.
      I recently got a kindle fire but before that I read all my netgalley books on the small screen of my smartphone...

  9. I can't decide whether to start Wither etc, so hopefully someday I'll get to read you're review :D Awesome list, so much awesomeness to read!

  12. Ditto for the Eternity Cure!! Kinda shocked cause we usually have entire lists in common haha but yeah I've heard great things about Easy & I want to read Untouched & The Infernal Devices (and if I have luck with it I'll move on to manga heh) Great list doll!

  13. I was told just today that I should try reading Ally Carter's books! Excellent list. There are so many good books out there! Thanks for stopping by my blog, by the way! :)
