So today I was looking at my bookshelf (which I do a lot) and then a thought crossed my mind quite a few times on a few different books. And that thought was: “How on Earth can I still have not read this?”


Yes, I’m talking about those books on our shelves. Perhaps the ones that we are too scared to read because of the hype, we haven’t had time, or are simply putting off. I have chosen books that are pretty popular that I’ve had for a while and I am so excited to read them and are suprised that I didn’t read them as soon as I got them.

1. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1)

2. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)

3. The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey

The 5th Wave (The Fifth Wave, #1)

4. White Cat by Holly Black

White Cat (Curse Workers, #1)

5. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)

So there you have my picks! What books are you embarrassed about not having read yet?

    I can’t think of one that I haven’t read yet from the top of my head, but this reminds me of a time when this happened to me (kind of). I bought Cinder from a used bookstore not too long after it came out, which made me extremely happen, but then it sat there. And sat there. I didn’t pick it up until the sequel was almost released and by then, the book was insanely popular. I was so ashamed of myself for waiting so long when I finally read it!
    Anyway, I’ve had this happen to me before!

  2. Oh dude, you HAVE to read Anna and the French Kiss! It’s so good, and since the third one’s coming out in a few days, it’s perfect timing 🙂 I have books like this as well, ones that have been on my shelves for SO long and I feel guilty every time I look at them! I’ll get round to reading them…eventually 😛
