Books I Really Want To Read But Don’t Own Yet!

Posted by

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we list top bookish things.
Note that Giselle and Jenni often decide to split it and each do a Top 5.




  • Bloodlines by Richelle Mead: I have the worst luck with spin-offs so I never bought this one when it came out, but it sounds like the series has really taken off since so I get more and more curious at each new installment. I need to catch-up!
  • Fragments by Dan Wells: I really enjoyed the first book in the series – like, really! And I hear this one is amazing. Sequels have not treated me well this year but I still have faith in this one!
  • World After by Susan Ee: Yep, uber failure when it comes to this one. I waited like a million years for a sequel and now that it’s out 287387123761 years later I still don’t have it! *slaps self*




  • The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey: This is the newest one on my list of OMG-Must-Have-Now! It just sounds so good and imaginative, and I already like the MC from the blurb alone!
  • Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver: I haven’t had the best luck with Lauren’s non-contemporaries, but I loved Before I Fall so hard it has me impatiently waiting for another contemp from her!
  • The Young Elites: Umm hells yeah! I loved her Legend series and I will read anything she writes!! *grabby hands*

What are some books you seriously want to read right meow but don’t have yet?

    I can’t wait to read that series by Rachel Vincent, I’ve read almost all of her other books and she’s awesome! Winter and the Young Elites are on my wishlist too for when they come out 🙂
    I’m waiting on Heir of Fire, I know it’s out next week but the wait for it has been crazy for me!

    For your upcoming books I really want to read The Young Elites as well! It sounds so freaking awesome! I can’t wait for October! =)))

    I’m sort of like you with spin off’s. I’ve purchased all of the Bloodlines books, but I haven’t read them yet. I was so disappointed with the ending of VA and how my little Adrian was treated. I thought I would get a little redemption for Adrian in Bloodlines, but it’s been 3 or 4 years now and I haven’t read them yet.

    I really want to read The Stars Never Rise, I am a big fan of Rachel Vincent and the cover for this book is so pretty and it sounds so original!
    I already have read Bloodlines and am really enjoyed the series so far, I still have to read the latest book Silver Shadows. I also have read Fragments and while the pace is slow it is an enjoyable books. beside that I haven’t heard of the other books on your list.

    WORLD AFTER. THAT IS A MUST. If you enjoyed Angelfall, you will LOVE World After! That book was so good. And Raffe, man, Raffe. Ugh, that book really was something.

    And The Golden Lily–yeah, spin-off are difficult sometimes, but this one is worth it, in my opinion. The Golden Lily is good, but the one after, The Indigo Spell, is amazing.

    Totally agree on For Darkness Shows the Stars. That was such a splendid book – not just the cover but the characters and the writing inside, too! The companion novel after it was just as good (based off the… Rose Pimpernel, was it? Forgot the name of the classic it was based off haha). AND YES TO ANYTHING MARIE LU WRITES!! She’s like the Marissa Meyer in a way 😛 An auto-buy 😛

    I have the first book of the Vampire Academy series, but I just never got around to ready the rest. But, I’ve been meaning to splurge and buy the whole series plus the Bloodlines series and just marathon them all! You definitely need to read For Darkness Shows The Stars. The pacing is a little slow, but the writing and story is beautiful. I’m loving the cover for The Girl At Midnight and the synopsis sounds so intriguing that I just WANT IT NOW! Also, totally agree about Marie Lu, cannot wait for The Young Elites.
