Top Ten Books I Just HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Bookshelf


Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week they post a top ten list related, of course, to books.

1. Crescendo by Becca Fitspatrick, I read Hush Hush, enjoyed it quite a bit, but haven’t gotten more than 40 pages into the sequel which has been on my shelf since it’s release.

2. Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima, Okay, I’m cheating a bit on this one.  I just read this last week, after it had sat on my shelf for over a year.  My cousin recommended it, and I wish now that I’d picked it up sooner.  It was awesome.

3. Party by Tom Leveen, he was at a book signing I went to last year, and it was the first time I’d heard the magic letters ARC.  They were giving his out.  I think I ordered my copy later because I was connecting it with the joy of learning that they make ARCs.

4. Spy Glass by Maria V. Snyder, finally read last week after 5 months on the shelf.

5. Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt, I got pulled in by the “princess” bit, but it’s a younger protagonist than I’d been picturing.

6. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

7. Percy Jackson and the Olympians (books 4 and 5)

9. The Birthday Ball by Lois Lowery, loved The Giver!

10. Incarceron by Catherine Fischer
