Top Ten Books Everyone Has Read… Except Me!

Written By: Kellie - Sep• 20•11

Alright, this week’s category is going to be hard for me because this is something I have specifically been working on this year, getting the BIG titles off my TBR list. None the less… here goes!

1. The Night Circus- Yes, this one is pretty new but it is getting such fantastic hype and I am rarely on top of the latest book craze… and I would like to be! This one is getting bumped to near the top of the list. I just might even buy it tomorrow.

2. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo- Okay, I’m probably never going to read this series as it doesn’t sound like my cup of tea but I have been tempted to try it out just to say I have. Too many other books I would rather read though. Not a bad problem to have.

3. The Iliad- This one has always been near the top of my books everyone should read list, even though I have never read it. I have always been interested in Greek Mythology and maybe for a change I should get my info from a source rather than Xena. Maybe.

4. A Song of Ice and Fire books 2 through 5- I HAVE read the first book in this series, which only puts me on par story wise with everyone who has seen the TV show so far. Not that impressive, Kellie. Not that impressive. The first book was everything I had been told it would be so I need to find the time to keep going with this series.

5. The Mortal Instruments Series- I tried it, had trouble getting into it and never came back. I still mean to though. If I have learned nothing else from all of these series I read after the hype was long past, it’s that they’re usually hyped for a reason and I’m probably missing out on a great read.

6. Anything by Ellen Hopkins- These seem a bit intense for me, but are hugely popular. Maybe I’ll try one one day??

7. Blood Bound (Rachel Vincent’s… I’ve read Patricia Briggs’s)- Another new title but one I am dying to read. She’s one of my favorite authors so no excuse not to read a new title from her in a genre I love as soon as I possibly can.

8. Bloodlines- So much hype, so much fail on my part. I meant to read this the week it came out and still haven’t gotten there. I’m not a huge fan of the MC for this new spin-off series so it’s hard to get excited about it. I’m still pretty sure I will love it once I read it though.

9. Under the Dome- I’m not usually a huge Stephen King fan but I have heard a lot of good things about this book and the premise sounds like exactly my kind of book. It’s pretty huge and intimidating though. They’re turning it into a TV movie so I need to make sure I read it before that happens or I’ll never get there.

10. Nightshade- I own it… I just haven’t gotten there yet.

    I hadn’t even heard of The Night Circus until today. It’s on so many people’s lists.
