Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: Ten Books that Have Been on your Shelf Since Before You Started Blogging. I’ve only had this blog for about a month, and yet I just realized there are exactly ten books I have had since then but not yet read. Wow, that’s a pretty small number compared to what it used to be. If I hadn’t packed away half of these for the summer without realizing I would need them, I probably would only have like four books on this list. Another wow. Without further ado, here’s all the books I have had sitting on my shelves for more than a month that I have not yet read.
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
This book has been on my TBR for so long, but other books keep coming in the way of me reading this. I’ll get to it sometime, hopefully soon. It sounds really good, and the cover is gorgeous, so I know it can’t disappoint.
The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
My friend raves on and on about this book and I’ve had it since it’s release date last fall, yet I still have not read The Sword of Summer. I ended up leaving it in a box for the summer, which I’m totally regretting because I want to read this book so badly.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
I love the other two books I’ve read so far by Morgan Matson, and I know this one can’t disappoint. I’ve heard it’s super emotional too though, so I want to wait for a time when I’m in the mood to read something like that.
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
Carry On has been waiting on my shelf since January, but I ended up packing this one up for the summer as well. 🙁 I really enjoyed Fangirl and Eleanor & Park, so like Second Chance Summer, I know this one will not disappoint.
Sing by Vivi Greene
From what I know, this is just a light summer contemporary read that totally gives me Taylor Swift vibes. I’m excited to read it, but I’m not like dying too, like Rebel of the Sands and The Sword of Summer.
The Glittering Court by Richelle Mead
I’ve heard a lot of not so great stuff about this book, but it still sounds good, so I bought it anyways. I also love the cover and the title has “Glitter” in it. How could I pass that down? From what I’ve read in various reviews, I have a feeling I won’t enjoy this one that much, but I still want to to read it.
The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
Wow, I bought this over a year ago but have still not read it. I started to then lost interest within twenty pages, but I wanna give it another chance this fall, or winter, or whenever I get to it. It sounds really good, I just have to keep reading to get into it.
Up to this Pointe by Jennifer Longo
I could not resist buying this book because the main character is a ballet dancer. However, I started it, lost interest in the first twenty pages, then didn’t pick it up again and ended up packing it up for the summer. I really want to give this one another try because it sounds so interesting.
The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
This was a secret santa present one of my classmates gave me last year, and I still haven’t read it. It’s not a book that I really had any interest in, but now that I have it, I’m gonna read it eventually. Plus, my friend said it was really good so I’ll read it someday.
How to Read Literature like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster
Okay, I don’t have any desire to actually read this, but I have to within the next week for school. It was the tenth and final book on my shelf though, so I had to include it.
