Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Can’t Believe That I Haven’t Read Yet

Hello, bookworms! If you’re thinking to yourself, this totally isn’t the Top Ten Tuesday topic listed on That Artsy Reader Girl’s page, you’re 100% correct. Grab a cookie.

For those who don’t know, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly prompt curated by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is “Books I Can’t Believe I Read,” but I couldn’t even make a top two list from that topic, much less a top ten. You see, I don’t do the guilty reading thing. I’m more of the Damn right I read that book, want to fight about it? type. This week’s topic didn’t resonate with me at all.

So I switched it up a bit. I mean, it only really took one word. Barely noticeable.

Here are ten books I can’t believe that I haven’t gotten to yet. Don’t judge me too hard.

1. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

I’m always talking about how I’m one of the few people I know that hasn’t read this series yet. But you won’t have to hear me say this anymore! I fully intend on reading the entire trilogy in February. That’s at least one book I’ll be able to cross off of this list.

2. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The Raven Boys is the first book in one of the fantasy series that practically founded the book community. I’ve owned it for a few years now, and somehow it’s still sitting unread on my shelf. I want to say I’ll change that this year, but…well, I have a ton of series to get to. Might be a 2019 book.

3. Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor

This is another one of those older series that’s super hyped and sitting on my bookshelf. I was supposed to start this book last year, but by some misfortune, I never got around to it.

4. Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Graceling has been around since before I was in college, and I vaguely remember skimming the shelves at Barnes and Noble as a teenager and seeing it. The world and characters are supposed to be phenomenal, so I’ll need to pick this up soon. Soon – that’s a word I use a lot on here.

5. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

This novel was a childhood must-read that my uncultured self passed right over. With the film coming out, I believe it might be time to see what all the hype is about. I mean, Oprah’s __, for god’s sake.

6. The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

All right, so I’m still amazed it took me so long to read Percy Jackson and the Olympians and I’m done with that series. It took every ounce of self-control I could muster to prevent myself from jumping immediately into Heroes of Olympus, and honestly, I’m surprised I’ve been able to hold off for so long. These books are happening this year, though. If they’re the only books I read for the rest of the year, they’re happening.

7. The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman

I attempted The Golden Compass as a child, but a combination of being easily distracted and unable to get into the story prevented me from ever finishing it. I’d love to give this book a second chance, particularly with the continuation novels coming out. We’ll see!

8. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

There’s no excuse for this. I own The Night Circus, and the twisted circus setting is so up my alley. This should’ve been read a long time ago, but what can I say? I’m a horrible human.

9. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken

Oh look, another book I’ve wanted to read forever that’s finally becoming a movie. I may slowly be turning into one of those people who just reads books to see their adaptations.

10. Red Rising by Pierce Brown

This, like many other books on this list, has been around forever. I’ve never actually purchased these books, so at least I can pretend I have an excuse for this one. But the plot and themes of Red Rising sound like my jam, and I’ll be angry with myself if I don’t get to this in the very near future.

And that sums that up. Have you read any of the books on this list? I’d love to hear your opinions! And I’d love to hear about the books you’re shocked that you haven’t gotten to yet. Discuss all the things with me in the comments below!

  2. Great List 🙂 I was with you on ACOTAR until recently, because I’m late to the party as well and have just read the first two books! But you have quite a few books on your list that I also haven’t read … Graceling, Red Rising, Daughter of Smoke and Bone? I want to read them but I haven’t had the chance to yet 😀 However, I have read The Lost Hero and it was amazing! I have yet to read book 3-5 though.

    1. I’m hoping to get to ACOTAR before February ends! Did you enjoy the first two books? And yep, time is always the problem! Too many books and too little time! 😂
