Tuesday Top Ten: Books I feel as though everyone has read BUT me

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish.

This week's theme is Books I feel as though everyone has read BUT me

1. The Twilight series - Stephanie Meyer - URGH, don't get me started. It has been nearly three years since the Twilight and vampire revolution took off and I have yet to read these series of books. WHY? Because I think the idea of having something like a vampire in a book is stupid and only popular because of Twilight. Twilight was around before the movies so why the sudden urge for some sparkly vampire to fall in love with? I am not sad I haven't read these books as I know the story anyway from those that have so I don't think you'll be seeing this book around here any time soon.  

2. The Hunger Games series - Suzanne Collins - This does anger me however. It's been around a year since the final book came out in these amazing series and now there is talk of a movie. I am yet to decide whether to see the movie then read or vice versa. 

3. The Uglies series - Scott Westerfeld - one of the oldest YA series going in the 21st Century - I know. But I just haven't seen them around in libraries etc. I can't help it...I can't...urgh. 

4. Where She Went - Gayle Forman - Like I say in most of these Top Ten thingy's - I SHALL READ IT AT SOME POINT SOON.

5. Jane - April Lindner - I have never seen this book. Ever. Not in the flesh, where is everyone gettting their copies (actually, I can guess that question). 

6. Divergent - Veronica Roth - Well, £10.99 for 300 pages - bit much so I'm waiting for it to come into the library. It looks absolutely amazing though, looking forward to reading it. 

7. Across the Universe - Beth Revis - I was one of the first bloggers to know about this and it always haunts me when I go in bookshops but because of my phobia of not buying books without knowing what they are going to be like in my opinion, I am yet to read this one. I think it's going to be a library one.


  1. Ah, I should have added Across the Universe to my list. Girl, you need to read The Hunger Games and Where She Went!!! I LOVED Where She Went...even more than If I Stay. I just got to see Gayle Forman this past weekend and she read from the part in If I Stay where Adam is pleading with her towards the end and put the headphones on her. BAH. TEARS.

    Here's my top ten books that I feel like everyone has read if you feel like moseying on over to my blog!

  2. Divergent was brilliant, in my opinion. I enjoyed it quite a lot. I'd also endorse reading The Hunger Games!

  3. 'Divergent' is AMAZING, so I hope you'll get to read it soon. =)

    The Hunger Games books are just lovely and amazing; I would recommend checking them out before the movies so you don't have preconceived notions about the characters or what happens.

  4. Jamie: Oh I'm glad, I was more worried that it wouldn't be as good and then I'd be bummed. Wow, you got to see her? I would love to meet her and get my books signed. I do have it, and I'll read it soon - promise!

    Alexa: Cool. Glad to hear it (I really really really do need to read the Hunger Games - it's embarrassing)

    Ashley: OKay, thanks for the heads up. I think I'll try and hunt them down in the library over xmas :)

  5. Your not missing much with Twilight :-)

    The Hunger Games is brilliant, I definitely recommend it. Uglies is pretty good too. I found the first book easy to find in libraries but the other Pretties and Specials were quite hard to find, I had to go to several libraries before I found Pretties, and I only ever saw Specials when it was being sold because it was withdrawn from stock.

    I still need to get Where She Went.

  6. Thank you :) I can't wait to read those titles you mentioned. I am going to hunt them down somewhere! :)
