Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...
But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread



As you can see, most of these books are the first in series -- and mostly dystopian or fantasy YA. It is so hard for me to start para, dystopian or fantasy series. I definitely gravitate toward contemporary. And yet, when I find a great series that is dystopian, fantasy or para, I get hooked. So I bought all of these, mostly as kindle deals, and have yet to read them! I haven't read The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden yet because I was so disappointed in Sorensen's other book The Secret of Ella and Micha.

  3. This is such a good list - I really need to read Mara Dyer, Grave Mercy, and Throne of Glass too. And I highly recommend Legend, The Diviners, and of course The Fault in our Stars - though bring tissues to that one!!

  4. Oooh, Jellicoe Road is amazing! It's one of my favorites now. I also want to read The Fault in Our Stars but I don't have a copy yet. Sucks, I know.

    Good luck with your list and happy reading!

    Here's my TTT

  5. I have so many of these on my shelf, unread, too! Some of them not for very long though. The only one I've read is The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer which I read last year - I did buy the second book as a new release and I haven't read that yet! Would love to read Jellicoe Road - I keep buying Marchetta books (I must have at least five now!) but I still haven't read anything by her! Shameful I know. Legend and Throne of Glass are two more I just had to buy but haven't read yet. I recently got Grave Mercy, looking forward to reading it but when?? Same for The Diviners!

  6. Throne of Glass is amazing! I really recommend it. Legend is an ok dystopian novel but there are much better ones out there.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  12. I just finished reading Grave Mercy last night and I really liked it. Loved Throne of Glass, Legend, and Maze Runner. Coincidence of Callie and Kayden are also on my TTT this week.

  14. The Fault in Our Stars was fabulous - the best possible introduction I could have had to John Green. He writes such wonderful characters!

  15. Grave Mercy was so good! And Maze Runner is action-packed fun. Plus it's going to be a movie. I want to read Legend, too. I'm a big fan of dystopian as well :)

What to Read if You Love The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

This & That – 2 Books with Strong Friendships, a Quest, and SHIPs!This and That” is a feature created by Megan @ Reading Books Likes a Bossand borrowed here with permission. Megan created this feature and I owe this post to her brilliance.  Not only should you check out her blog, generally, but her This & That recommendations are utterly perfect! Megan created this feature to showcase books that either sound similar or have similar themes, and thus I am recommending that you read the "that book" because you are a a fan of the “this book.” 
About the Books: THE RAVEN BOYS (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past.

Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
