Top Ten Tuesday: To Be Read

As always, this feature is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Whenever I think about what books I've got on my TBR, it usually overwhelms me. SO MANY CHOICES! I do want to read all of these (at some point), though, so let's hope it happens.

1. City of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare
Many people have already read this one - and sad to say, I'm not one of them. I have a particular care when it comes to series, where I want to remember every detail, so I have to reread the first part all over before I can read this one.

2. Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
Intriguing premise, possibly exciting story - and yet, I still haven't read it.

3. Firelight by Sophie Jordan
I want to read this book so bad, but I keep forgetting I already have it. I'll try to remedy that this weekend, by hopefully getting it started.

4. Swoon by Nina Malkin
Ditto to #3.

5. Marked by P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast
I have heard mostly good things about this series, but I have yet to read it. I've been taking a break from the paranormal lately, and venturing into contemporary reads.

6. Hereafter by Tara Hudson
I love the cover of this book - but it always get puts at the bottom of my TBR pile because it's a weighty hardbound. (Yes, apparently, I can be inordinately shallow when it comes to the books I heft around - I don't like something too heavy!)

7. Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
I started this one once, then lost interest.  But I still do want to read it before I watch the movie, because I'm very curious about it's story.

8. Eona by Alison Goodman
See #1. I am very excited about this one because Shanella over at Shanella Reads got me an autographed copy because I won her haiku contest!

9. Tortall and Other Lands by Tamora Pierce
I love Tamora Pierce. The only reason this book has gone unread is because I want to wait for a moment where I can properly savor it.

10. The Alchemyst by Michael Scott
I've read this previously but it was a while back; I want to continue with the series, but I believe this deserves a read first.

What books do you have sitting unread on your shelf?


  1. Ooh, I haven't read City of Fallen Angels yet either. I loved the first three in the series, and I enjoyed the ending of City of Glass. I just don't want to ruin that ending, haha.

  2. I've read Marked and City of Fallen Angels, all the others I could add to my wishlist! I love the cover of Eona, so that would probably be my first choice :)

  3. Yup, my TBR just keeps growing and growing every time I visit a new blog, lol.

  4. I know EXACTLY how you feel. Same thing has happened to a lot of my books.

  5. It does! I'm getting mixed reviews of it though, so I'll have to read it and find out for myself!

  6. I'm really hoping I do, especially before the New Year starts! I essentially want to diminish my TBR pile... which just looks like it isn't happening yet. lol

  7. Firelight has been on my TBR pile for a while, too, although not as long as some others! I'm with you on Tamora Pierce needing to be savoured.

  8. I have some of these on my TBR as well. The Alchemyst has piqued my interest. I am trying sooo hard to NOT add to my TBR but each blog I go to has great stuff! lol..

  9. I need to read Marked because I have that one, too, although I've heard bad things about it. So, I'm worried, but I'll just have to read it to find out how I feel about it, as I should. The Alchemyst is another one I'm interested in...

    Thanks for stopping by my blog post today. Have a good one!

  10. Never Let Me Go is wonderful. And Oncarceron is on my wishlist. :)
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. :)

  11. I so need to read Incarceron.

  12. I have quite a few of these on my TBR pile, as well. So many books, so little time. I hope you have as much fun as I do catching up!

  13. I bought Firelight months ago thinking I'd read it right away, but . . .
    I'm not sure when I'll finally get to it.

    I planned on reading Hereafter in October, bu that month has come and gone and the the book still sits unread on my shelf. *sigh*
    Seriously, most of my reading plans never work out.

  14. I haven't yet read City of Fallen Angels either (its just not on my shelf yet!) If Incarceron is anything like its sequel Sapphique----mind blowing.
    Great list! I hope you get a chance to start those one day :)

  15. Never Let Me Go should have been on my list, too. It looks really good, doesn't it/


Thanks for leaving a comment! I love seeing what you have to say, and will try to reply (here or on Twitter) as soon as I can :)
