Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke And The Bookish

This week is all about those books that you just HAD to get, but then never got around to reading. Well I have a bunch of these...

1. Toxic by: Jus Accardo- I was so excited for this book and I even pre-ordered it.. but then it got here and I ended up going away for a week and by the time I got back I was distracted by other shiny books and I still haven't gotten back to it. I still want to read it, now I just need to find the time.

2. Pride by: Rachel Vincent- After I finished reading the Soul Screamers series, I decided I needed to buy all of Rachel Vincent's books... and I did. However, I still have yet to make my way through them all. I read the first two of her Shifters books... and loved them... but I have yet to dive back in and start Pride.

3. Dearly, Beloved by: Lia Habel- I adored Dearly, Departed and bought this one immediately after finishing it, but for some reason it just never got read. I really need to make time for it soon, because I really am DYING to read this one.

4. Up In Flames by: Nicole Williams- I bought this one the day it released! I love her writing. I really want to make time for this book soon!

5. Everbound by: Brodi Ashton- This is another one I bought the day it released and I had every intention of reading it immediately... once again I got distracted and then never got back to it, which really saddens me.

6. Falling Kingdoms by: Morgan Rhodes- This one had a lot of hype and I was really excited to see if it would live up to the hype. I hope to get to read it soon!

7. The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by: Jessica Sorensen- That cover drew me in and then I heard amazing things about it, so I bought it. One day I will finally read it.

8. Of Poseidon by: Anna Banks- I was excited to read this one because it sounded different as I have never read a mermaid book... but then I just never read it because I never felt in the mood for it and I still haven't.

9. Beautiful Darkness by: Margaret Stohl and Kami Garcia- I actually have all of these books, but this one will be next up since I finished Beautiful Creatures. Before the movie was coming out I just needed to buy all the books, because apparently waiting for me is not an option. Hopefully I can start in on the second book soon.

10. Spark by: Brigid Kemmerer- I wanted to start this one immediately after Storm so I bought it and then well like with every other book on this list, I was once again distracted by other shiny books.

What made your list? Link Me.


  1. I think we all have books on our shelves which we haven't read yet. Sometimes it would be nice not to have to sleep.

  2. We have one of the same on our lists!

    I will say that Beautiful Darkness disappointed me and I haven't read the last two books yet but I keep hearing that Beautiful Chaos is really good so I need to read those soon (after Mara Dyer!)

    I really want to start the Unearthly series -- add that to my list, too :)

  3. Can not wait to get Spark. I do it all the time buy a novel right after I read one before in a series then get distracted by something else.

  4. Great List! I have heard about The Coincidence of Kallie & Cayden. It looks good!

  5. Great list. I've been meaning to read Kallie and Cayden, too, but I've heard it has a killer cliffhanger ending! So...I might wait until the next one comes out first.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT!


  6. I do this a lot too! Glad to know that I am not the only one!

  7. I'm to same way!!! So many books bought, so little time to read them all!!

    Now, I think you should really get on Up In Flames, you'll love! I did!! I also have Falling Kingdoms, need to get to that one!!

    You have so many good books!! I need to get Toxic, oh yes I do!!

    Hopefully you'll have time to get to some of those wonderful books!

    I also love this meme! I think I might have to do it once in awhile ;D

  8. Up in Flames and The Kallie and Cayden book looks good! Also the series Spark is in is on my TBR :)

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT :)

  9. It happens to the best of us ;) I grab new releases off the shelf with such fervor, but then they sit untouched on my bookshelves for much longer than I planned :( I cannot WAIT for you to read Beautiful Darkness and continue the series so we can GUSH!! Loved this post! Great Top Ten! <3

  10. I also have Beautiful Darkness waiting for me on my shelf unread. Not sure why because I loved Beautiful Creatures (the book; haven' seen the movie yet). I'm in the same boat as you seem to be with your picks - I bought them with every intention of reading them ASAP, except unfortunately I never found the time among all the other books I have to read! Ah, oh well. Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog earlier!

  11. AHAHAHA....I also have Falling Kingdoms somewhere in my bookshelf and I still haven't read it. But woman....you NEED TO READ SPARK!!! You will head over ass in love with Gabriel. That boy is just too hot for his own good! And this one also sparks a mild anger towards Nick and that no good Quinn....ahhhh...don't even get me started! But you have to read it...SOON!!! I will force you if I have to! -_-

    Anyway....all the other books sounds fantastic. A lot of them I have on my TBR and I need to get to them soon. Hopefully you get to read them all very very soon....after Spark of course! ;p

  12. OH MY GOSH. can you just hurry up and read Callie and Kayden!? LOL ;p

    1. hahaha I want to! Like seriously! But I have no time lately! I havent even been able to enjoy Walking Disaster =[

  13. You have a ton of great stuff on your list!! I still haven't bought Everbound - I loved Everneath, but I want to read Neverfall first and that's not going ot happen as long as it costs me 9$ (for an eNovella!!) from my location. Toxic and Dearly Beloved are high up on my list of what to buy next! And I just finished the first 2 shifter books and hope I'll get to Prey soon :)
    There just isn't enough time >.<
    Thanks for stopping by yesterday!

    1. Ugh that is insane for a novella! Well if it helps, I dont really think Neverfall is critical to understand Everbound.

      But seriously, there needs to be more time in the day!


I love getting comments and appreciate every single one of them! It always brightens my day =]

This is an award free blog. I truly appreciate the thought but I simply do not have the time. Comments are an award all on their own =]
