Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Each week there’s a different Top Ten list. It’s a great way to find and connect with other awesome bloggers.
So I have quite a few books on my TBR.
Not just on my physical TBR but my Goodreads TBR – you know, the books that I will probably NEVER get around to reading, but they look so pretty and I would just like to gobble them all up. I have awesome expectations of them, but then all the negative reviews start rolling in and…wow, do I really want to read that after all? Here are some of those books.
1) Side Effects May Vary by Julie Murphy
I mean, I actually bought this book for myself, so I can’t be too doubtful of it. But I have seen lots of negative reviews, so I’m a bit worried. I’ll still read it, though, eventually.
2) The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
I read This is What Happy Looks Like by the same author, and wasn’t that impressed. But this book looks so GOOD, and I want it to be GOOD. Everyone says it’s her best one, but still, I’m not sure what to think. Maybe I can track it down at a library somewhere.
3) Frostbite by Richelle Mead
I’m honestly not sure what’s stopping me. I really liked Vampire Academy despite any misgivings I had to start with. I guess I’m just really bad at keeping up with series.
4) Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
Speaking of series. I mean I borrowed this book recently, so I WILL read it, but I’m still not sure about it. Will I like it? Will I not? I hope I’ll be surprised. I tend to warm up to series after the first book – it happened with The Lunar Chronicles, maybe it will with this.
5) Almost Dead by Kaz Delaney
I didn’t like the first book, which was Dead, Actually. So I’m hesitant about this one. I feel really bad because it’s signed by the author, and a lot of my bloggy friends liked it…so maybe it’s better than the first one? But it’ll probably be a while until I read it.
6) The Diviners by Libba Bray
Mostly I’m avoiding this one because it is MASSIVE. Like, it’s GIGANTIC. That’s basically the only reason. I know. I’m a terrible book nerd.
7) The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I’m just not sure if I would like it. But there’s a movie coming out so maybe I should. I’m CONFUSED, blogglings!
8) Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Oooh, some of my common dislikes here – one-word title and paranormal. But Cait from Notebook Sisters assures me it’s awesome, so that’s worth something, right?
9) Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
I finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone recently and was a bit underwhelmed, honestly. I loved it in some parts, but it was a bit disjointed. I’d still like to read the others, though.
10) Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
I did actually read half of this, years ago. Maybe like three years ago? Or something? I just remember disliking it. But I have actually debated trying to read it again without the bias I had before, because I was one of those Harry Potter people who hated even the mention of Twilight. Yeah. I was one of those. Not proud.
