The best thing about being a book blogger is the fact that I always have something to read. That’s also the worst thing.
Unless I win the lottery (and probably not even then), I won’t be able to read all the books that I have now. And that’s just what I have NOW, not the books that I plan to acquire (either for review or in exchange for cash).
But I was just looking through my Kindle and there are so many amazing books that I own that I haven’t read yet. Here are some of the worst:
1) The second and third books in Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me trilogy.
2) The two most recent books in Richelle Mead’s Bloodlines series.
3) Everything by Marissa Meyer
4) Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum
5) The Other Normals and It’s Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini
6) Flame (final book in Sky Chasers trilogy) by Amy Kathleen Ryan
7) The most recent Melissa Walker book (Ashes to Ashes)
8) The two most recent Pretty Little Liars books (and last two Lying Game books) by Sara Shepard
9) Openly Straight by Bill Konigsberg
10) The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
11) Champion (third and final Legend book) by Marie Lu
12) The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult
13) Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding
14) Blythewood by Carol Goodman (I love her adult novels and can’t wait to read her foray into YA…except apparently I CAN, because I have)
15) Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
16) And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
17) Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano
18) The Outsiders by SE Hinton
19) The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
20) The Paris Wife by Paula Mclain
21) The Lynburn Legacy books by Sarah Rees Brennan
22) Infinityglass (third Hourglass book) by Myra McEntire
23) All the books from Lizzie Skurnick’s awesome imprint that’s reissuing old school YA novels with retro covers
24) Crystal Lake Memories (awesome Friday the 13th book) by Peter M. Bracke
25) Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan
26) The final Soul Screamers book by Rachel Vincent (as well as every non-Soul Screamers book she’s written)
27) The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp
28) The Big Reap by Chris F. Holm
29) The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
30) The entire collected writings of Deb Caletti. Seriously. EVERYTHING SHE HAS EVER WRITTEN.
This doesn’t even scratch the surface.
So what books are you most ashamed of not having read?
