Top Ten Tuesdays #27: Long Overdue

top10tuesdayBooks I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read…
Because Everyone Else Has!

Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make LISTS of our top ten books based on that week’s prompt… and then we stalk other people’s answers to add a million books to our TBR. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here.

This week’s topics are books you can’t believe you haven’t read yet, like certain YA staples in a specific genre. There are so many books and series out there that I feel like EVERYONE has read. I feel a little out of the loop! There are staples within the YA genre that everyone also has a strong feeling about (sometimes good, sometimes bad!). Many of these I plan to read at some point – someday – but some of them I’m not sure if I’ll ever bother with. I decided to keep the genre wide open because there are so many different ones across different genres that I need to get going on. (And yes, there are a couple more than ten. Not sorry!)

Which of these have you read? Are you a black sheep like me and haven’t read any? Which live up to the hype and which don’t?

Jellicoe Road / The Selection / Throne of Glass / City of Bones / Vampire Academy / Divergent Cinder / Uglies / Percy Jackson / Delirium / Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour / Obsidian

  1. I’ve read your second row and Uglies. Uglies is BY FAR one of my favorite series. I’m not big on buying books because I don’t re-read very often, but I own the whole series, plus a book of other authors thoughts on the series. I also absolutely loved the VA series, Divergent until the end, and so far I mostly like The Mortal Instruments (I still need to read the 5th and 6th ones).

  2. I haven’t read most of this list either. I own Jellicoe road and I plan to read it this year. Beside that I have read Vampire Academy, I love that series! And I have read Throne of Glass, or actually I DNF’d it, after all the hype I thought I would love this book, but it wasn’t for me. I also have read Divergent, Delirium and Obsidian, which were all enjoyable. Cinder is on my to-read list as well!

  3. The Selection was fun, and then it went downhill afterwards… :/ And Throne of Glass did not click with me at all, I DNF’d at about 15%? Cinder and The Lightning Thief were good though and easy reads, and I also want to read Vampire Academy and Delirium. Nice list!

  4. Well this is slightly awkward I’ve only read three of them. OH WELL. I liked Uglies, but I read that such a long time ago! And Delirium was good at the time, but then I realized how boring in plot it was compared to everything else I was reading. AND CINDER GO READ THAT ASAP. It is really good 🙂

  5. Jellicoe Road, Cinder, Uglies, The Lightening Thief and Obsidian are all on my TBR, the others I’ve mostly thought about but haven’t dedicated myself to yet. I’ve read Throne of Glass, and all the books in this series that are currently released, and it’s one of my favourite books/series ever!! I’ve read all 6 of the Mortal Instruments series too, I enjoyed some more than others, but overall I really like the series. I’ve also read the Divergent trilogy and Delirium trilogy. I’m assuming you know what happens in Divergent? I enjoyed the books A LOT, and liked them a lot more than many others seem to, parts of the story others find annoying didn’t irk me at all. It was brave. Delirium, I LOVED some parts of this series, and would still recommend them, even though the last book made me want to burn it. It’s lovely writing and a great premise, but if you’ve other great books to get to, read those first!
