As always, this feature is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish!
I have so many books on my reading pile that it isn't even funny anymore.
But here are the top ten books I'm hoping to finish this winter.
1. Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
Why? It's the final book in the Inheritance cycle and I owe it to myself to finish the incredible journey the first three parts took me on.
Why haven't I read it yet? It's basically because I can't bear to see it end. Plus, it's been a few years since I've read the first three, so I wanted to reread them first.
2. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins
Why? I loved Anna and the French Kiss. It was easy to fall in love with her writing style and I can't wait to meet these two new characters. Plus, I want to see Anna and Etienne make their appearance!
Why haven't I read it yet? I haven't read it because I don't have the book yet. I've been meaning to get it for myself but (a) I'm on a book buying ban and (b) it's on my Secret Santa wish list so someone else might get it for me.
3. All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin
Why? The cover is gorgeous. The story synopsis is intriguing. And it involves chocolate.
Why haven't I read it yet? I only purchased this book fairly recently, but I keep forgetting to put it towards the front of my shelf. I keep seeing it when I examine my bookshelves.
4. Eona by Alison Goodman
Why? It's the sequel to Eon, and I'm dying to see how everything goes down in this one.
Why haven't I read it yet? I like savoring my signed books - and since I won a contest hosted by Shanella, this is one of those books. Also, as with the Inheritance cycle, I'd like to reread Eon first.
5. The Future of Us by Jay Asher & Carolyn Mackler
Why? It's a story about two teens who discover something interesting - themselves in the future.
Why haven't I read it yet? I have no excuse for this one, really.
6. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
Why? It's by Maggie Stiefvater. 'Nuff said.
Why haven't I read it yet? See #5.
7. The Luxe by Anna Godbersen
Why? Apart from the gorgeous cover, the story itself seems utterly intriguing. Plus, it's gotten great recommendations from a bunch of bloggers.
Why haven't I read it yet? It's at the very bottom of my pile of books, so I don't actually see it when I'm looking for what to read next. And I don't want to pull it out or the whole stack will fall (yes, I can be lazy like that).
8. What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
Why? I love almost all of Sarah Dessen's books, so I'm pretty sure I'll like this one.
Why haven't I read it yet? I only got this one fairly recently; it's just not been added to the TBR pile because there are review books lined up.
9. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
Why? I saw the movie trailer and the story intrigued me. I usually like to read the book before watching the film, and that's what I want to do for this one.
Why haven't I read it yet? I don't know actually. I always want to, but then end up skipping over it.
10. Marked by PC & Kristin Cast
Why? I love books about vampires, plus this series has great reviews.
Why haven't I read it yet? I needed a break from reading about supernatural creatures and I wanted to wait until I had the next few books in hand.
So those are my top ten TBR books (which I hopefully finish).
