This is my first time participating in Top Ten Tuesday! I decided I was tired of missing out on all the fun with everyone else. I may start alternating Top Ten Tuesdays and Waiting On Wednesday memes from week to week.
This week's theme is...
Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy... But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread
The Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordin
The Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld
Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Anna Dress in Blood by Kendare Blake
Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
BEHOLD MY SHAME. In all of these cases, I was SO excited to read these books after reading other bloggers' reviews that I just HAD to run out and buy the books immediately... only to have them sit on my shelf for months, collecting dust. Occasionally I will make time in my reading schedule of review books to "reward" myself with one of these babies, but that seems to happen few and far between. And honestly, the list above is only a small fraction of the books I could've included in this list. This is just embarrassing.
Probably the worst offense on this list is John Green's Box Set. I own all of John Green's books (including Will Grayson, Will Grayson) and have been a HUGE fan of the Vlogbrothers since almost their inception. And yet... nothing. I have not read one book of his. And I have no excuse. But I will absolutely be making it my main goal this year to read John Green's books! Finally!
