Top Ten Tuesday: Books I had to buy but are still sitting on my bookshelf

hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish.

I have this problem.  My books love to sit and wait for me to find time for them.  I feel like a mother who's neglected her children. I've been working through a lot of the books that I have on my shelves this year, so at least now I'm making progress!

1. Divergent by Veronica Roth - I was told I must have this book, so I got it.
2. Graceling by Kristin Cashore

3. The Memory Palace by Mira Bartok - I met this author at school and she signed her book for me, yet I still haven't read it.
4. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins

5. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
6. A Handbook To Luck by Cristina Garcia - She is so lovely, (I also met her at school), and wonderful.  I had to pick up her book!

7. Feed by M.T. Anderson
8. Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon - I saw her read part of this book and I was so taken with it, but I haven't had the time to read it yet!

9. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
10. Dreamland by Sarah Dessen - I got this book in middle school, or maybe the beginning of high school.  It's embarrassing that I still haven't read it.


  1. That's the nice thing about books--they always wait for you. good luck with your reading kelley—the road goes ever ever on

  2. I love, love, love Uglies by Scott Westerfeld! It is definitely a must read.

  3. Graceling is brilliant, as is the rest of the series. Thirteen Reasons Why is a right tear jerker but it's so good! You should read them soon!

    My Top Ten!

  4. Well, the last book in the Divergent trilogy is coming out in October so I'll say you can wait a bit more and then read it without waiting. I've seen Lola on quite a few lists!

    I own the series when you read the rest of them :)
