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

 Ohhhh my. Is this topic not the story of a book blogger’s life? I feel like every time I see a book now I HAVE TO HAVE IT! And then it sits on my shelf… for who knows how long before I pick it up. Sigh. It’s this strange obsession that happens. In fact on Sunday, I sat down in front of over 100 books and do you think I could find one to read? No. Well I did obviously, but if I had to have all of them right at that moment… why couldn’t I pick just anyone? It’s a mystery… a big mystery 😛

Confessions of a Murder Suspect  Unearthly  The Casual Vacancy - Top Ten Tuesday  Uglies  Hate List - Top Ten Tuesday
Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson
*OMG… I needed to have this. I hadn’t(and still haven’t) read a James Patterson so I needed to get this ASAP! lol
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
*Somehow I managed to convince myself I was going to read this the same day… obviously not. :S
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
*This is probably the most embarrassing because I was at the store at 7:30am… and still haven’t read it.
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
*I had to pick this up before my summer vacation…
Hate List by Jennifer Brown
*I died when I seen this in store because I was looking for it everywhere; umm… that was 7 months ago?

The Kill Order  Beautiful Darkness  City of Fallen Angels  Dead as a Doornail  Witch World by Christopher Pike
The Kill Order by James Dashner
*Bahaha, I had to have this book… like RAN to the store after work. 
Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
*When I finished Beautiful Creatures, I had to pick this up… and then I got distracted by something else.
City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
*I waited patiently for the paperback release and hurried to pick it up… yup, still unread.
Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris
*I rushed to pick this up but then I found out this is the last tv tie in edition until May so I held off, haha.
Witch World by Christopher Pike
*I almost cried when I seen this in stores… and carried this FORTY pound book home and haven’t touched it. Le sigh.

Honestly… this whole top ten was very embarrassing for me. As I was going over my shelves & Goodreads I realized how many time I have hurried to the bookstore, to get home and forget about the book. No wonder BF has forced me on a budget 😛

What are you guys must have’s but not read yet???

Happy Reading!

    My problem is quite the opposite…too many books, too little cash! So I have these books that plead at me every time I open my GR page, and all I can do is flash them an apologetic smile and wait for better times :(.
    I’m a huge Pike fan, but still I’m able to recognize his weirdness LOL. Witch World is no exception to the weirdness rule of course…anyway, I kinda liked it, though the heroine it’s a bit of a rip-off from his Last Vampire/Thirst series. It starts a little slow, with all the regular (???) high school drama and a long, detailed (err…as in, slightly boring) explanation of the game called 21 – then it gains pace and introduces us, literally, to another world. The title is obviously a pun for “which world”, since there are two slightly (or often more than slightly) different realities involved. So…you need to read it. Like NOW! (Just kidding LOL).
    Anyway, talking about Pike, I’d particularly recommend Remember Me (the first installment…the other two, not so much) and the Last Vampire/Thirst series.

      Thanks for the recommendations Roberta! I’m going to check those out(cause I definitely need more to add to the pile, lol). I remember reading him years ago(so long I can’t even remember the plot lines haha and liked his books. I’m glad to hear Witch World is weird and great.. I love weirdness, it’s different 😛

      OMGGGG… I KNOW! It’s like… unbelievable, haha. Actually it’s feckin embarassing haha. I’m reading that this weekend now :S

      I loved the Maze Runner also but I was disappointed to find out that the Kill Order is actually not related to Thomas so that haulted my excitement for it :S I’ll still read it though eventually.

      I actually got to page 25… there is TOO many characters for me at this time. It’s definitely an “adult” book and I’m really into the funness of YA right now soo… it will be awhile I think :S

    Both Uglies by Scott Westerfield and A Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling are on my TBR shelf as well (along with like 70 other books :O). It’s bad! If you wanna see my top ten unread books, I also posted a TTT, which you can find here:!
