Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, a state that you don't have to worry about being deprived of more books as long as you're near a library. This week's Top Ten is:
Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me
(Yes, I am a sucker for YA Lit.)
1. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins - With the third book in the series being released next year, I'm kind of behind with this one. I've seen it reviewed on many blogs and then in a lot of the Half-Price Books stores, so it's really just a matter of sitting down and reading it.
2. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa - This one is huge among the blogosphere, and even some of the newest bloggers are digging into this one. I haven't read too many books featuring fae as the main (if only) supernatural being, but I have hopes for this one being a good introduction.
3. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher - I really want to read this one simply because I want to hear Clay and Hannah's stories. In reading the reviews from many of my fellow bloggers, it's one of those books you have to be in the right frame of mind to read.
4. Wings by Aprilynne Pike - I guess this one kind of goes with The Iron King in that so many have read it, yet I've pushed it back. I actually have it in ebook format and haven't been using my Kobo too much lately, which I'll probably change soon.
5. Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren - I also have this one in ebook format and not reading on my Kobo has probably stalled me on reading a few popular ebooks.
6. Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs - Since I'm getting into my Greek mythology groove again, I plan on remedying the fact that I haven't read this one or it's sequel, Goddess Boot Camp, yet. The Austin Teen Book Festival's going to be a huge help in that regard.
7. The Darkest Powers Trilogy by Kelley Armstrong - For the longest time, I thought Armstrong only wrote adult paranormal fantasy books. Now that I've found this trilogy, it seems as though people have either read it already or are snatching the books up.
8. Prom by Laurie Halse Anderson - So far I've only read Speak by Anderson, so I'd like to see how she does humor in her books with this title.
9. Shine by Lauren Myracle - This one kind of goes in the same vein as Thirteen Reasons Why, but I know I want to read it, and I definitely will.
10. Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs - Maybe I've head off on this one because I haven't gotten into mermaid literature. That's not to say the story doesn't intrigue me... it just intrigued a lot of other readers before.
