Top Ten Tuesday: Book That Everyone Except Me Has Read

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Rewind!  I didn't get to do this topic but it feel so relevant right now.  I feel like there are so many books/series that I need to read to catch up with everyone.  (That's what I get for becoming stuck in a book list that over 500 books long.)  So here are my top ten Book that everyone else has read.

1. The Stephanie Perkins books Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door.  I have seen so many reviews recently that I just need to find the time to read these two books.  Luckly, I've just bought Lola, so that will be read soon.

2. The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.  The covers alone make me want to read these books!  Also, you everyone has said I need to read these books.  I feel like a fool.

3. Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin.  I'm not sure I want to read this series, mostly because it's so long, but it looks really good.  Also, his name makes me feel as though it should be placed next to other highly respect authors with initials in their names: J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, J.K. Rowling.

4. Divergent by Veronica Roth.  This also has been on my list for ages.  Well, not ages exactly.  I just found out about it in January, so six months.  But that's a long time.  Now its sequel has come out and now I feel incredibly behind.
5. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  The internet tells me to read this book.  My aunt tells me to read this book.  Someone compares it to J.K. Rowling, which means I have to read this book (although I am skeptical.  The last book that someone compared to Rowling in order to get me to read was the Twilight series.  And well, we all know how accurate that comparison is.)  However, everyone seems to really enjoy it, so it goes on my list!

6. Paper Town by John Green.  I have read everything else John Green has written because I LOVE him and his writing.  I have no idea why I haven't read this one yet.  I own it for Pete's sake!  Really, Alex?  So this is probably going to be nextish on my list.  Oh John Green, please continue to write wonderful books for the next rest of my life.  Thank you.

7. Delirium and Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver.  This one has been on my radar for only a short time, but again everyone has read this!  Why am I so completely oblivious to potentially really good books?

8. Maggie Stiefvater.  All her books, but in particular The Scorpio Races.  Her name has been floating around my universe for a while now.  I think it's time to just pick up this book and figure out if I'm going to like this author.  (If I've heard correctly, it will be a yes.)

9. Anything by Neil Gaiman.  I've only read one of his books, Stardust.  And after watching the episode of Doctor Who that he wrote, I just really should most definitely continue to devour his writing.  Oh man, is everything he touches amazing? 

10. There are a lot of classics that I should have read by now.  I'm going to name a few of them.  Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, and Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.  There are so many more on this particular list.  I will get to them eventually. right?


  1. I haven't read The Night Circus either. I just recently finished the first book in The Mortal Instruments series and I really liked it.

  2. I feel you. I'm always the last to read something.. while everyone was raving about Divergent, I was only just finding out about it ^^' Same goes with Delirium, The Night Circus etc.
    Don't worry though, we'll catch up on them ;)

    Thank you so much for stopping by my top ten ^^


  3. I finally read one of Gaiman's novels but I definitely need to read more. Great list!
