Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven't Read Yet

10. Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Maragret Stohl
I read Beautiful Creatures soooo long ago and as soon as I finished it I had to buy the next books. I bought Beautiful Darkness seconds after I finished the first book and then found the third book at my library for like 50 cents. I had the best of intentions on reading them but...haven't.

9. Bewitching by Alex Flinn
Now this one I think I actually bought right after I started blogging but only by a couple months. I loved Beastly and other work by Alex Flinn and since this is supposed to be about Kendra - I think that's her name - from Beastly I really wanted to pick it up. I bought it...haven't read it.

8. Interview With A Vampire by Anne Rice
I picked up this book at a used book place and I couldn't wait to get home and read it. But then I didn't.

7. The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
The Readables on YouTube talked about this book a very very long time ago and I had to pick it up. I did try to read it but I just wasn't in the mood I guess because I never finished it.

6. The Choice by Nicholas Sparks
I actually have a few Nicholas Sparks books that I haven't picked up. I have this weird habit of buying his books whenever I find them. At one time I had about 4 copies of The Lucky One. It's a weird habit, I know. Anyway I just haven't gotten around to reading this one yet but I would like to...eventually.

5. Cocktails for Three by Madeleine Wickham
I bought this because it's Sophie Kinsella and we all know I love her. For some reason I just never read it.

4. The Lying Game by Sara Shepard
I bought this one off of ThriftBooks.com oh so long ago but I didn't ever read it. I think it's because I'm not a huge fan of the Pretty Little Liars books so it kind of made me not want to read this.

3. The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory
I read The White Queen and really enjoyed it so I had to pick up this one asap. The thing is these books - while great - are different from what I usually read so it takes me a bit longer to get through them. With that being said I've never been in the mood to put the fort in to read this. I hope I'll want to someday soon..ish.

2. Wicked Lovely by Marissa Marr
I remember watching the ChapterChicks on YouTube, they were actually one of the first bookish channels I subscribed to. They had this series and I remember loving the cover of this one. Barnes and Noble had a sale one day and this was under $4 so I got it of course. Then I lost all desire to read it.

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling


  1. I read Beautiful Creatures and never got around to the rest of the series either. Love Alex Flinn too.
