Top Ten Tuesday {5}

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Every week there's a category and everyone participating lists their "Top Ten" in that category.

This week's question is: Top Ten Books That Have Been On My Shelf For The Longest But I've Never Read?

I don't actually have a lot of older books laying around on my shelves, but I do have a ton of unreads :P

1. A Wrinkle in Time by Madelein L'Engle
I've never read anything particularly old. Before you ask, no, I haven't even read any of the classics. GASP. I know, get it out of your system, because thems the facts. A friend gave me this and told me to read it "when I got around to it." Yes, I silently laughed (who has time for old books with all the new ones??) but I truly do hope to get around to it sometime.

2. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Obviously this one hasn't been on my shelf for that long, but it seriously feels like it. Everyone's been talking about since earlier this summer and for some reason it feels like the book's been sitting on my shelf for that long too.

3. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Of course I want to read this. Scifi/fantasy IN SPACE?! Yes, I desperately want to read this, but my library addiction is keeping from reading the books I actually own. It's a terribly sad thing.

4. A Need So Beautiful by Suzanne Young
I've heard such amazing things about this one and I'm dying to read it, especially with the sequel's recent cover reveal. That whole library addiction is rather pesky though...

5. Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
I bought this one on impulse since I'd heard great things and Sweetly was due to come out soon. I have no idea when I'll get around to it as werewolves aren't usually my thing, but I do have actual plans to read it at some point.

6. Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols
Earlier this summer Jennifer sent me Love Story along with this one for review. I read and loved Love Story, but I've yet to get around to this one even though quite a few people have told me it's their favorite Echol's book. I know, I can really fail at my book priorities.

7. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
I've heard some mixed reviews about this one so that combined with my already large stack of to-reads is keeping it glued to my shelf for now.

8. Audrey, Wait by Robin Benway
I've been wanting to read this one since it came out back in 2008 and so when it was on sale at Borders I bought. And yet...there is sits, untouched on my shelf. It's a tragedy, I know.


  1. wrinkle in time is definitely worth it, even if it is "old." ;)

  2. I'm reading Sisters Red at the moment - it's really good! :)

  3. I wanted to read Sisters Red for ages and then when Sweetly came out my sister got me both. It sounds really good.

    My top ten is here if you'd like a look :)

  4. You've got so many on there that I desperately want to read too, namely Daughter of Smoke and Bone. How awesome does it sound? I'm in love already.

  5. Can't believe you haven't read a Wrinkle in Time. I thought everyone had.

  6. Sisters Red is on my wish list. :)
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. :)

  7. I have all these books...UNREAD as well. One day...

  8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is just awesome, I finished that one recently. Don't let it hang there forever! And definitely read Going Too Far, it and Forget You are my favourite Echols novels.

  9. I liked Sisters Red (and I love the cover, on a completely different note). It's an interesting take on werewolves, to be sure :)

  10. Dude. You have GOT to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Across the Universe, and Audrey Wait. I was literally laughing out loud during Audrey Wait. It was cute. Love Across the Universe more than I can express, it's beautiful and Daughter of Smoke and Bone was kickass. I'm about to read Sister's Read, because I love Jackson Pearce (have you seen some of her youtube videos? She is too funny. I heart her) Happy reading :)
