Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish featuring a new top ten list each week. Everyone can participate- head on over to their blog and sign up.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Feel as Though Everyone Has Read But Me. There’s tons of books I haven’t had a chance to read yet, and these are just some of the ones that I thought of first. As time goes by, it gets more daunting to consider starting an older series when there are so many books to catch up on. All of these books and authors interest me, and I hope to get to them at some point.
In no particular order, these are the books I’m the last on the block to read:
2. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta – Everyone loves this book and this author, so this is probably the number one book I would like to catch up on
3. Any book by Sarah Dessen – Again, this author has a huge number of fans, and as someone who enjoys contemporary reads it’s time to find out what I’ve been missing.
4. Any book by Scott Westerfeld – The Uglies series, Leviathan series, I haven’t read any of them. I slunk by this author at Comic-Con as everyone else waited in line to get their books signed. I own the Uglies series so that is probably the one I’ll get to first.
5. The Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson – I think I put off starting this series because of all the hype and I just wasn’t sure it was my thing. I may read or listen to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo before the movie comes out though.
6. Looking for Alaska by John Green – Or Paper Towns, for that matter! The only book I’ve read by this author is Will Grayson, Will Grayson, co-authored by David Levithan. I own LFA and look forward to reading it.
7. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare – I’ve owned this book since it’s release date, and I’m a fan of The Mortal Instruments series, but I still haven’t started this book. Maybe before Clockwork Prince comes out in December?
8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – This book has over 110k ratings on Goodreads so clearly I am one of the last to read this book. I own the kindle edition and recently checked out the audiobook from the library so one way or another I will get to it soon.
9. A Game of Thrones / A Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin – I haven’t watched the HBO series either but this is supposed to be an amazing fantasy series and I hope to check it out sometime.
10. The Fever series by Karen Marie Moning – Every time one of these books is released I see the buzz on Goodreads and it makes me curious to read them.
Did any of these make your list? What books do you feel everyone has read before you?
