Top Ten Books I Want

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.  If you love lists like I do, you must check them out.

 

This Top Ten Tuesday we are talking about books we want to read, but just don’t have them yet.

I try my best to get a lot of books from the library.  I moved to an area a few years ago and the library doesn’t have as big of a selection.  Sometimes I really want to read something, but they just don’t have the book I want.  Maybe I should just grab a stack of there book suggestion cards. So here are the ones I haven’t requested and have been trying to hold off on buying them.  I am trying my best to save as much money as I can.  I want to start a masters program in Library and Information Science this spring.  That is crazy expensive!

I Heart New York

  • I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk

I ordered the third and the fifth book from BookOutlet.com.  I tried to order the first, but they did not have any more copies.  Grrr.  Now those books sit on my shelf and I can’t read them until I read the first.

 

slammed

  • Slammed by Colleen Hoover

This is another one I ended up with the third book, but haven’t read the first one.  I loved Hopeless and I want to read more by Colleen Hoover.

 

The Last Song

  • The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

I didn’t think I would want to read this book.  You know, after that whole Miley Cyrus movie business.  However, so many people say this is one of the their favorite Nicholas Spark books.  Now I really want to read it.

 

The Sound

 

  • The Sound by Sarah Alderson

This one just sounds (no pun intended) like something I would really enjoy.  The thing is I am not 100% sure, so I have put off buying this one for now.

 

angelfall

  • Angelfall by Susan Ee

So many people have been talking about how great this book is.  I want to be one of those people.  I am holding off buying it.  I am finding I love marathoning series.  For this reason I want to wait to read it.

 

The Public Library

  • The Public Library: A Photographic Essay by Robert Dawson

I really enjoy these types of books, but most times I just read them once.  I can’t justify buying it.

 

humans of new york

  • Humans of New York

*same reason as above*

 

 

secret hum of a daisy

  • The Secret Hum of a Daisy by Tracy Holczer

One huge reason is the cover.  It is just so pretty.  Plus it is suppose to be really good, so there is that.

 

garnethill

  • Garnethill by Denise Mina

I need more mystery books in my life.  I have had my eye on this book for so long and every time I have resisted buying it. I have no idea why. One day it will be mine!

 

The infinite sea

  • The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey (The 5th Wave book #2)

I really enjoyed the first book.  I am debating on waiting to read this one when it comes out or wait till closer for book #3.  Sure would be nice to have it while I am deciding. 🙂

 

What books are you really wanting to own?

  1. It’s sad when you can’t get an interesting sounding book from your library. I read a lot of books only once, so I do a bunch of checking them out, too. Does your library not do Interlibrary Loans?

    • I get a lot from the library. They do Interlibrary loan, but the area I am in doesn’t have a lot of bigger libraries around. So, the selection tends to be limited for what I want. I also check out the online library selections as well. It just isn’t enough.
