This weeks top ten, hosted by the Broke and the Bookish, is the top ten books we had to buy. These books still remain on our shelves unread.
I am pretty proud of myself that I couldn’t come up with ten books. I try really hard to only buy books that I will read. I just don’t have the extra money to buy that many books. I supplement a lot by going to the library.
1. Divergent by Veronica Roth
This was one I bought on my Kindle and have yet to read. I have no excuses, other than I just haven’t read it.
2. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
I bought Anna Dressed in Blood right around Halloween last year. I was excited about getting it, but now I feel like I should wait till this coming Halloween.
3. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson
This one I grabbed when I saw it at a second hand store. I was really pumped to read it based on all the hype and I thought it would be good to read it before the movie. After awhile I just thought maybe later and it has been pushed off to the side. I know people have said it is hard to get into and I think I just need to be in the right mind set for it.
4. The Sixes by Kate White
I picked this one up because I love Kate White’s Bailey Weggins series. I read another stand alone book by her and I was just so-so on it. For that reason, this one has gone unread.
5. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This was another one I purchased on my Kindle close to the time when it was released. I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet. I know the series is complete and I still have yet to read this one.
6. Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult
I went through a time when I read a whole bunch of Jodi Picoult’s books. I think I burnt myself out on her books and have since left this one on my shelf.
That is it for this week. What books did you buy and then leave unread?
