Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week's Top Ten features books that everyone has read -- except for me. I actually had a hard time narrowing this down to ten, and ended up excluding "classics," though there are still an infinite number of those I need to read in my lifetime.
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher: It seems like every is talking about this one lately, and no one has anything but praise. I'm on a contemporary kick right now, so this is definitely high up on my list of books to read ASAP. As in, this weekend.
2. Paper Towns by John Green: This applies to John Green books in general. Everyone seems to have read at least one! I own a couple, but I haven't read them yet. I don't know why!
3. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Green: Again, applies to all David Levithan books. I picked up a ton at the library and just never got around to them. I'm ashamed.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins: Don't even say it! I know! I just don't want the series to end! Especially since this one has gotten such mixed reviews. I don't want to be disappointed.
5. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak: Another one that EVERYONE talks about. It's apparently been formative for a lot of authors? Must read soon.
6. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman: Applies to all Neil Gaiman books. I feel like I can't truly call myself an "avid reader" until I've read his work. He's a legend in our own time.
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver: This one was a big hit among the YA community, but I just wasn't into contemporary at the time. I loved Delirium though, so I really need to give this one a try.
8. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson: I know, I know. I just have a hard time with this particular issue. It makes me really mad and upset and I haven't been able to get up the nerve to read this one.
9. White Cat by Holly Black: I want to read it, I just never seem to be in the right mood for a mobster/magic book. But I am officially the last person on the planet who hasn't read this one, it seems. Shame on me.
10. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick: I've been kind of put off because I've seen so many negative reviews of this one. The synopsis sounds like my cup of tea, but from what people say about Patch...I'm nervous.
Are there any here you haven't read? Am I all alone?
