Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started here at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they have a specific topic for a top ten list. This week is books that have been on your shelf but have never read. This week features Emilia.
Hey, everyone. Okay, if you didn't know I work at Barnes & Noble, and I always see these books being bought by so many customers, so I tend to buy them. The only problem is I never get to them afterwards. Having a employee discount can be a really bad thing at some points.
Here's my list of unread books:
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Okay, I always tell myself I am going to start the series before the movie comes out, but I never get to it. I read the first chapter but I never got around to finishing it. I know it's my type of book and I really want to read it, but I just keep putting it off. I plan on reading the entire series by Christmas time. Then, I can truly feel part of the excitement.
2. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
I saw a lot of girls buying this book in the store. We always had to restock the shelf for the first two weeks. I mostly bought this book because of the cover. I couldn't help but just want it. I read Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver so, I know I really like her writing. Now, it just sits there on my shelf waiting to be read.
3. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
I have all of the books signed by her, and I have met her in real life. I love WEREWOLVES! So, when it came out, I bought it right away. I have the entire series but never read a word. I am so ashamed.
4. Hush, Hush by Becca FitzPatrick
I was writing a Fallen angel book and thought I should read others before finishing mine. I wanted to make sure I wasn't copying anyone. So, I grabbed a bunch of Fallen angel novels to read over a vacation. I never got to Hush, Hush. It was the one I wanted to read right away, too. It was all because of the cover. The boy is just so mysteriously hot.
5. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Where has the time gone? I bought this because I heard so much about the series. One of the best series that we were always restocking. I only bought the first book, thinking I would get to it but I never did. Another series I will have to read over winter break.
6. Evernight series by Claudia Gray
I have the entire series and they are all signed by Claudia. I read the first chapter of Evernight, and I was amazed. I really liked it. I never got passed the first chapter. It's not because I didn't like the rest of the book. I just didn't have enough time to get to it.
7. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
I love everything about this book. The cover, the synopsis, and it being a sci-fi, I was all into reading it. When it arrived, I saw the cover had a flipped side, that showed the map of the ship. I was thrilled! Then I had to travel to Florida, and Across the Universe laid on my desk forgotten. When I came back, it's still there on my desk waiting to be opened.
8. Wings by Aprilynne Pike
I heard Miley was going to play the girl in the movie for this book. Then, I heard it was about a girl that has a flower on her back, that turn into wings. AWESOME. Not the Miley part, the flower part. I bought the book because, I wanted to know why they thought Miley was the perfect fit for the girl. Yet another book I never opened. Actually, I lent this out to a friend, and she loved it.
9-10. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins & The Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray
I bought these both at a used book store. The covers were in great condition and I needed to save some cash, so I bought them with some other books. I read all the other used books but never got to these two. I don't know why I haven't started, since I love both of the books' synopsis and covers.
Well, that's all folks. I know I bet I'm the only one who has never read these series. These are some popular books, and I feel so out of the loop when people talk about them. So, what's on your TTT?
