|I choose... THAT ONE!|
So, I have a lot of books. A LOT. I believe I've already told you guys about the time I broke my toe on one of the many stacks of books on my floor in the middle of the night. I have over 200 titles on my Kindle and a TBR list a mile wide. It's no wonder, then, that I haven't had time to get to all of them.
1. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
I LOVED both If I Stay and Where She Went so much that I bought Just One Day the day it came out. Every review I've read has made it sound amazing, and yet... I haven't gotten to it! Why? I don't know. I've been so swamped with other review books lately, or maybe I haven't been in a contemporary mood. I'll get to it though! I'm determined. After adoring Anna and the French Kiss, I'm desperate to get back to (a book version of) Paris.
2. Sanctum by Sarah Fine
This is one of those books where I loved the premise so much I just had to buy it. And yet, other books got higher priority, and Sanctum just kid of languished there on my Kindle shelf, waiting for me. Don't worry, Sanctum. Your day will come.
3. The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress
The blurb for this book describes it as a Steampunk whodunit. I mean... that is irresistible to me. So how is it possible I'm still resisting? Even though I know it has three strong female leads and a healthy heaping of humor? I don't know! Hopefully I'll get to this book at some point.
4. Carnival of Souls by Marissa Marr
Confession: I also haven't read Marr's most famous series, her Wicked Lovely series, though I did pledge to do so sometime this year (for the second time). Not sure what my deal is with not starting books I know I'd like, but I did always have an element of self-sabotage in me.
5. The Archived by Victoria Schwab
SPEAKING OF NOT READING BOOKS I WILL LIKE. I don't know WHY I haven't just stopped everything I'm doing and read this at once. I was salivating for MONTHS to get my hands on this sucker. You'd think I would devour it the second I had it in my cold greedy clutches, and yet... I bought it at the same time as Unravel Me and Scarlet, two sequels I'd been waiting for so anxiously that I could barely contain myself on the drive to the bookstore. And so The Archived fell to the wayside.
6. The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong
Normally this premise wouldn't interest me, but this series has gotten a lot of hype, and I managed to snag a copy on the cheap. I also managed to win an ARC copy of the sequel (not the third one, though), meaning I truly have to read it now, going by the pressuring, nonsensical logic in my head. But I've never been good at doing things I have to.
7. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Again, I haven't been in a contemporary mood lately (which is lucky, since it's currently March Fantasy Month), which is the only reason I have for not reading this book yet-- that and the fact that I own it, which sometimes makes me feel less inclined to rush and read it (my loopy internal logic is also highly specific and capricious. Follow it at your own peril). I'm saving it for the day I need a real emotional pick-me-up.
8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I. KNOW. This book has been deemed by many estimable people to be an absolute must-read, and read I HAVE NOT READ IT. I own it. It's there. If I ever fancy a good cry, I will pick it up. I PROMISE.
9. Underworld by Meg Cabot
I love Meg Cabot, I truly do. There are few authors as prolific or as capable of making me happy so quickly. And yet because she's so prolific, I feel less of an urgency to get to all her books. I read Abandon when it came out, and it make me look forward to Underworld, and yet I didn't have that addicted feeling I usually have with sequels. So Underworld still sits on my shelf unread. But eh. I'll get to it.
10. Slide by Jill Hathaway
I read such a great review of this book and loved the synopsis so much that I rushed immediately to buy it. I could not tell you why I haven't read it yet. Too busy? Possibly, but I've had this one for ages. I DON'T KNOW. TOO MANY BOOKS. TOO LITTLE DAYLIGHT HOURS. HAVE NOT YET MASTERED ART OF READING WHILE SLEEPING. HOW IS ANYONE EVER SUPPOSED TO GET TO ALL OF THEM?!
So what about you? Which books did you rush to buy but still haven't read? Leave me your TTT links if you've got them so I can come see!
