Belated Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This Top Ten Tuesday Wednesday focuses on the books in three genres I can't believe I haven't read. Either because they have such great reviews or they've been in my line of sight forever. For whatever reason, I haven't joined the fan club for these books and THAT NEEDS TO CHANGE NOW.


Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder
Although I've heard the title before, I don't think I've actually seen it on many blogs before. But I have seen the great reviews on Goodreads and it sounds like my type of book so I need to read it asap.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
I MET HER! I have the second book signed, she just released the title for the fourth book, and I saw many people break on Twitter when they read the third book. To top it off: I read the first couple of chapters of The Raven Boys when waiting at the book festival and really enjoyed it. It was my sister's copy so I never got to continue. BUT IT WILL HAPPEN.

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordian
I've seen so much fan art (I'm looking at you, Gillian) and fangirling for this one. That much fangirling is like a bone to a dog. Gimme, gimme.


Matched by Ally Condie
More mixed reviews for this one, but I really like how the covers transition with each book and I can't resist these kind of dystopians.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I heard the movie differs (obviously) and while I haven't watched the movie yet, I've heard great things and I can't just watch the movie without reading the book. That's a big book blogger sin.

The 5th Wave by Rick Yancy
I met him too and got the book signed (although I think I gave it away later...?), but I still haven't read it. That needs to change, yes?


Paper Towns by John Green
While I loved The Fault in Our Stars, I haven't actually read any other John Green books. I tried one, but could never finish it. Since this is turning into a movie, I have more of an incentive with this one.

The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
This seems to pop up on a Top Ten Tuesday all the time so that means I have to read it.

Jellicoe Road by Melissa Marchetta
THIS BOOK. Oh my gosh, this book. Everyone and their mother loves this book and Marchetta so I need to read it. I tried listening to it, but had to stop the audiobook. So I'll start again with a physical copy and hope that I'm not the black sheep.

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
I'm not much of a Sarah Dessen fan anymore, but since I've read her other books, I should read this one too, I think.

Which one these books am I really missing out on?


  1. The 5th Wave was so amazing! Although I still haven't read the sequel (I bought it right after it came out). The Moon and More didn't really live up to my expectations. I felt like I wasn't as wowed by it as I was by her other books (I'm a HUGE Sarah Dessen fan- she sort of kick-started my love of reading!). It was still a lovely read though. I still need to read the Percy Jackson series, too! As for John Green, I really had a hard time enjoying his other books as much as I liked TFiOS. Good luck catching up on your books! :)

  2. I read the first two Raven Boys books and the first Percy Jackson book. I haven't continued either series thus far, but they are surrounded by hype monsters so you may have better luck. Great list! :)

  3. PLEASE read The Lightning Thief (and then the rest of the series), Matched, Paper Towns, and The Sky is Everywhere (I'll Give You the Sun too, if you haven't read it)! I'm planning to read The 5th Wave (I have a copy sitting on my shelf)... I'm hoping it's good!

  4. Personally, I recommend skipping Matched and The Maze Runner. Both series really disappointed me. And I need to read Percy Jackson too!

  5. There are so many books you've mentioned on here that I still need to read too, such as The Moon and More and The Maze Runner! And seriously you need to read The 5th Wave soon, its all kinds of amazing!

    Not sorry for the caps. You seriously need to read that book, NOW. JONAH EFFING GRIGGS. <3

    Also, The Raven Boys is super amazing.
