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.


  1. There are so many books on this list I just want to force you to read lol. Hush Hush, Mara Dyer, Throne of Glass... all wonderful reads. Hope you have time for them soon!

    1. Mara Dyer is definitely next on my TBR! I promise :)

      And I will definitely make time for Hush, Hush and Throne of Glass, too!!

  2. Almost have of your list, almost made mine! It was so hard to narrow it down.

    You simply must read The Fault in our Stars asap. It's fantastical!

    My Top Ten

  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!!

    Nikki @ There were books involved...

  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!

    My list

  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!

    My Top Ten!

  7. Legend is awesome. I can't believe I waited so long to read it. I'm excited to read Prodigy too. The characters, story, world are all great. I hope you enjoy it.

  8. Jellicoe Road is AMAZING! Is a MUST read.
    I also have read and LOVED Grave Mercy, The Unbecoming of ara Du¿yer and Legend.
    I hope you enjoy them.
    thanks for stopping by my My Top 10 Tuesday

  9. Hush, Hush is pretty amazing, and I also have The Coincidence of Callie & Kayden and haven't read it. I need to get on it lol

  10. Oh, Mara Dyer and The Fault in Our Stars are amazing! Mostly The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, though. It's so good - I hope you like it when you read it!

  11. I liked Hush, Hush but wasn't a fan of The Maze Runner. I got Throne of Glass for Christmas and haven't gotten to it yet either. Thanks for checking out my TTT!

  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.

  13. What a good list of books that fit this topic... because I also own SO MANY of these! Ha :)

  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 :)

    1. Oooh Thank you Jessica -- didn't know about the movie, definitely want to read it before that comes out!!

  16. Haven't read of these but they're on my TBR list. Thanks for stopping by!

  17. Throne of Glass and hush hush are really good! I don't own The Diviners and Grave Mercy but I want to read them very soon! Great list :) Thanks for stopping by yesterday!

  18. Loved Legend! And the sequel was so good too! I'm very anxious for the last book next year. Jellicoe Road is another amazing novel. I hope you get to read some of these soon!

    Thanks for stopping by my post!

Mini Joint Reviews: Sex, Love & Stiletto series by Lauren Layne

Today, I'm so excited to be posting mini joint reviews of the Sex, Love and Stilletto series by Lauren Layne, which Jasprit from The Reader's Den and I recently read together!
After the Kiss (Sex, Love & Stiletto #1) by Lauren Layne

Blurb from Goodreads:
In the first book of a delightful new series from Lauren Layne, the star columnist of Stiletto magazine will do anything for a story. Anything... except fall in love.

Julie Greene loves flings. Loves steamy first dates, sizzling first kisses, and every now and then, that first sexy romp between the sheets. Comfy pants, sleepy Sundays, movie nights on the couch? Shudder. But when Julie gets assigned the hardest story of her career—a first-person account of that magical shift between dating and "I do"—she'll need a man brave enough to give a total commitment-phobe a chance at more.

Normally, Mitchell Forbes would be exactly that man. A devastatingly hot workaholic who tends to stay in relationships for far too long,…

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
