It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday list! This week the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to take a long, hard look at our bookshelves and ‘fess up to what has been languishing, untouched and unread for the longest time. Since I am not at home to look at my personal bookshelves, I am heading over to Goodreads to checkout my TBR list. I really should stop kidding myself; the chances of me getting to all 145 books on that virtual shelf are pretty slim, especially since I keep adding books. But I digress. Here are ten books that I really, truly, honestly intend to read someday but until then, they are stuck on the TBR bookshelf.
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. It’s been on the list since January 2008. Maybe I will pick this for my 7th and 8th grade book club.
Blue is For Nightmares by Laurie Faria Stolarz. I have been meaning to give this series a try. I enjoy her Touch series, but after reading mixed reviews of this one it has been shoved on down the list.
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. It’s been a while since I read Just Listen, the only Sarah Dessen book I’ve read.
Death Cloud by Andrew Lane. I keep checking this one out from the library, but have yet to read it. In fact, I have it at home right now…again.
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty. I have heard lots of good things about the Jessica Darling series and I just found four of the five at a used book store over the weekend and just had to snatch them up. I swear I will read them.
Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson. It’s historical fiction. I struggle with historical fiction.
Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney is another book that I like to bring home from the library and return unread. I am stuck in a vicious cycle with this one. Someday it will be read.
Merchant of Death by D.J. MacHale. The Pendragon series has been on my list for a while. In fact, I bought the entire series on audio because I thought I would have an easier time listening. The audio shelf now taunts me every time I walk by.
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin. I am not entirely sure that I have not already read this. Maybe I read it when I was in school? I keep meaning to check it out.
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot is another series I would like to read. I think. But I won’t know until I get the first one, right?
Sigh. I usually love Top Ten Tuesday. This list kind of made me sad. So many books, so little time. Ok, wallowing over, it’s time to get reading! I should probably take a day off and finish Game of Thrones so that I can get back to tackling my TBR pile.
