Top Ten Tuesday [3]: Forever Alone

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

This week’s topic is: Top Ten Books I Feel as Though Everyone Has Read But Me

1. Forgive My Fins by Tera Lynn Childs

This won’t be on the list for long–I’m reading the series for Mermaid Month in November!

2. Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry

I’ve had this book on hold FOREVER and I’m hoping to get to it before the end of the year.

3. Possess by Gretchen McNeil

To be honest, I don’t know if I should read this book. I studied exorcisms for about a month in a religion class in uni and I think I’m still traumatized by what I learned there.

4. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstein

This is just popping up everywhere I look and it seems as though the buzz is well-deserved.

5. Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin

I’ll probably start All These Things I’ve Done next week, so I should take this one off the list soon too.

6. On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta

Not quite sure what this book is about, but I’ve heard so many wonderful things about the writing style.

7. Incarceron by Catherine Fisher

I meant to read Incarceron when it first came out, but that summer was one of the most hectic in my life. This is another one for Christmas vacation!

8. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han

I tend to avoid summer stories because of their fleeting nature. I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever read this series, but hey, maybe I’ll surprise myself.

9. Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready

Karen from FWIW talks about Shade a LOT so is it any wonder that my interest was peaked?

10. Gossip Girlseries by Cecily von Ziegesar

I read the first book a couple years ago, but have no intention of ever reading it again. That said, it certainly does feel like everyone I know’s read them.

What are the top ten books you feel like everyone’s read but you?

  1. I haven’t read any of those! I have Gossip Girl in French but I’m too lazy to luck up all of the new slang. And I’ve read about four pages of Incarcereon but I’m not that interested.

  2. I haven’t read any of these either. I read the first couple of Gossip Girl books back in Year 11 or 12, but they didn’t grab me and never read them again.

    I really need to read On the Jellicoe Road (along with everything else that Marchetta has written) because Melina Marchetta is a fantastic Australian author. I currently have Looking for Alibrandi sitting in my TBR pile. 🙂

  3. You need to get ‘Jellicoe Road’ PRONTO!! Haha but seriously, it is one of my all-time favourite books, I really adore it.

    ‘Shade’ and the ‘Summer’ books are really great as well.

    I need to read ‘Elsewhere’! I own it, but I haven’t read it yet.

  4. I have to read On the Jellicoe Road & The Piper’s Son. People just rave about those two and harass me constantly to read them.
    Forgive My Fins is SUPER cute if you want a fun read and I’m dying to read The Night Circus. Might even break my book buying ban for that one.
