Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome and wonderful people over at The Broke and The Bookish
I know that we’re not alone in a seriously bad habit that we have. Buying books and then putting them on your shelves and not reading them. Go ahead… raise your hand if you’re guilty. Mines in the air! This is the year we are going to read them though! It’s one of our resolutions… (even if it isn’t yours Erin, I’m making it so). So this week’s Top Ten list is a list of the books we own and have purchased and have been sitting on our shelves for much longer than they should have. These are the books that will get read this year!
So I’ve broken my picks into two groups! The first group are all SERIES books that I am fail at! Click on the covers to add to your Goodreads Shelves!
The Assassins Blade by Sarah J. Maas – ugh… you probably don’t want to know why I haven’t read these novellas yet… but I’ll tell you. I’m a Chaol & Celaena ship all the way. It kind of kills me a bit inside that she loved Sam… and please let us NOT talk about Queen of Shadows yet… *sobs*
Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini – I am super excited for this one. I know Erin loves it so I knew it had to be on my must read pile this year.
The Opal Mask by Jenny Lundquist – This series has been on my TBR pile for quite some time, I actually just got the first book from my #otspsecretsister, having accidentally bought book 2 by accident.
The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh O’Brien – I am really excited to start this one! I’ve heard it’s amazing and Caragh is so lovely, plus I have the first two books so I can dive in!
Remember Me by Romily Bernard – I love loved book 1 of this series, but I know book 3 is on the way so I’ve just been kind of holding out in wait for it to arrive… mostly because I don’t want to have to wait.
Talon by Julie Kagawa – I actually own the first two books of this series, and I have heard it’s pretty amazing and I really don’t expect any less because Julie Kagawa… I just … don’t have any excuse really.
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater – Okay don’t yell at me… this was mostly intentional. I wanted to wait until it was closer to the release of The Raven King. I’m hoping to read this one pretty early this year!
More Than This by Patrick Ness – I was told that I HAVE TO READ THIS ONE. I loved the other Patrick Ness books I’ve read so I’m pretty sure I’m going to love this!
This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready – I have had this on my bookshelf for quite some time because I’m super intrigued by the premise.. .I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet, but this is the year!
Afterparty by Ann Redisch Stampler – I bought this as soon as it came out and then I put it on my shelf and forgot I had it. I’m determined to get it read!
Servants of the Storm by Delilah S. Dawson – I’m pretty excited to get to this one this year. This will be my first book by Delilah and I can’t wait to start it!
Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid – I had every intention of reading this in 2015 but I don’t know why I didn’t. I’m going to get it read this year though and early!
The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne – I have heard amazing things about this story, and I actually had it on my October to read pile, but things didn’t really work out and I missed out on some of my October plans. I think this will be one of my early reads in 2016!
S by J.J. Abrams – I bought this book right when it came out because OMG the premise and the book and everything J.J. Abrams. I’m so excited to get into this one because it’s one of those uniquely told stories and it’s two stories in one. Click on the cover for all the details!
Apparently I have a problem with buying series books and then not reading them right away. Almost all of my books on my list are series books – some beginnings and some are the final books but regardless, I have these on my list to read this year!
Sanctum (Guards of the Shadowlands #1) by Sarah Fine
I have loved everything I have read by Sarah Fine so I don’t know why I haven’t started this book yet. This book and the other two in the series will be at the top of my list for 2016.
Ten Thousand Skies Above You (Firebird #2) by Claudia Gray
There were so many books I had on my October/November to read list that this one got lost in the shuffle. I really liked book one of this series with the time travel and historical aspect so I am looking forward to reading this second book as soon as I can.
Catalyst (Control #2) by Lydia Kang
This book has been sitting unread for way too long. I actually attempted to pick it up about a month ago to read but had some review deadlines to meet so had to set it aside again. I am motivated to find out what happens to Zel.
