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

Oh, this is an interesting TTT, I am so guilty of this with so many books.

1. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Um, I pre-ordered this book in May 2011 (back when he was only signing a limited amount of copies) and two years later I still haven't read it. I guess I'm afraid I won't like it.

2. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
Smoke and Bone blew my mind and I got into this audiobook the day it came out and still have only listened to an hour or so.

3. Crewel by Gennifer Albin
I feel so bad, this is the one BEA book I never got to review. I really wanted this one and have only got a few pages into.

4. Unwholly by Neal Shusterman
I loved Uwind and bought this book the first chance I got, but still haven't cracked it open.

5. Ask the Passengers by A.S. King
I actually won this one, so I feel less guilty about it.

6.  Everday by David Levithan (actually anything by David Levithan)
I have like 4 of his books sitting on my shelf that I have never read. I plan to remedy this at some point.

7.You Are Here by Jennifer E. Smith
I got this immediately after finishing The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, but haven't opened it. (I did get it signed, though !)

                                     8. Insurgent by Veronica Roth

Do we have any of the same books ? Link your TTT below so I can see them ! 


  1. Lol. I did that too with TFiOS before and when I read it I'm like, "WHY HAVEN'T I READ THIS BEFORE?!" Hopefully you'll get to read it soon! :D

    Here's my Top 10

  2. My new approach to this problem is to take everything that's a year old or more and pass it on. That way, at least, I don't have to torment myself by looking at all of these books that I will never get around to reading.

    Here's my Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread.

  3. I am terribly guilty of this too, I'm afraid. I always buy books with the intention that I'll get to read them soon, but it never comes to pass. The Fault in Our Stars is also on my list, which is crazy because it seems like everyone else has read and loved it. I actually thought Days of Blood and Starlight was EVEN better than Daughter of Smoke and Bone so I highly recommend it!!

  4. Insurgent is totally on my list too. Considering I read and enjoyed Divergent right before Insurgent's release... solely so I could jump immediately into the next one... makes this even more confusing for me. Really need to get around to that one!
    My TTT!

  5. Make The Fault in Our Stars your next book to be read. I promise you, for all the attention it gets, it is THAT good! It was funny, and it will gut you ;-)

  6. I think I owned TWO copies of The Fault in Our Stars at one point, and I haven't read it yet! Glad to know I'm not the only one out there...

    Thanks for sharing your list!

  7. I have heard a lot about The Fault in Our Stars. I should look at that one. Great list, new follower :-)

  8. TFiOS is the only one I have read on this list, so I feel it is the only one I can tell you that you really should read, haha ;) I can really see it being one that you would like Kat! Also, I'm totally digging the new blog look!!

  9. Books are the one thing I rarely feel guilty about buying because I find ways to justify why I have to have it, but I tend to feel guilty once I realize how many I didn't feel guilty about buying and haven't read yet. The cover for Days of Blood and Starlight is amazing (I still need to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone). I keep seeing The Fault in Our Stars everywhere, maybe I should consider reading it soon.
