** I know it is Wednesday today, but I got all my days muddled up when I went to write this post and then had no energy to think of something new and actually wanted to share these with you so I left it up. **
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are making lists on which books we resolve to finally getting around to reading in 2013. In all honesty, I have so many of these but somehow I will narrow them down to just ten!
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak I got this a while back after getting many amazing recommendations from my blogging friend Kathe but have yet to open it (to which I am sure she’d be disappointed to here), so I hope very much to read it this year!
Wonder by R. J. Paladio This is one that was highly recommended to me and so many people have since mentioned how amazing it is and it is still just sitting on my shelf so I really want to read this one soon!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green Similar situation to Wonder, I have only read one of John Green’s books but I loved it so I don’t why I am taking so damn long to read this one of his which I have heard so many great things about.
The Name of The Star by Maureen Johnson I have had this book for so long and I don’t know why I don’t just pick it up and read it. It sounds like the perfect book for me and yet it just sits there staring at me.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi I brought this book way back in January last year when I finished Divergent and was looking for another brilliant book to follow it on with. Somehow I just never got around to reading this but I hope to change that this year.
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater Or really, any Stiefvater book as I seem to own so many of them but haven’t actually read any of her work before. So many people love her stuff so I really need to jump on the bandwagon and find out why!
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathon Safran Foer I got this as soon as I watched the film and fell in love with it. But I have yet to pick up this book and feel that book transcend onto the page. This year I really do hope to rectify that.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett This is the same situation as above, loved the film so much I brought the book but then never got around to reading it. This is one that is actually near the top of my TBR pile so I hope to read it very soon!
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro Another film that I absolutely loved. My friend lent me her copy of the book so I plan to read it this year so that I can at least give it back to her in a timely fashion! It is one that I have wanted to read for so long after another friend highly recommended it as well!
Fallen Series by Lauren Kate I am one of the only few (I swear) bloggers who hasn’t even started this series yet but I hope to read them all this year so that I can see if they’re books I love or ones that I hate as I know that so many bloggers are on the fence!
