Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish!
This week’s topic is books we want to read but don’t own yet or otherwise have a copy of (since I get most of my books from the library). Many of these are continuations of series that I haven’t picked up yet, often because I am waiting for them to finish up so I can binge-read the series at once! As in previous weeks, please feel free to leave a comment but forgive my inability to respond while I am away!
1. Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson- Alright, I do own the first book but haven’t read it yet. I expect that I will love them, based on recommendations from multiple people and a very good friend, and so I already know I want to read the rest of the series!
2. Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo- The final book in the Grisha trilogy is definitely on my to-read-soon list, but I just got my hands on the second book and don’t have the third yet.
3. The Girl With All the Gifts by M. R. Carey- It just looks like a really creepy, fascinating book and I have wanted to read it for awhile but don’t have a copy yet.
4. Unhinged by A. G. Howard – This is the second book in the Splintered series and I haven’t bought a copy yet, even though I really want to read it. The first book was great, but I almost want to wait until the third book is out so that I can read the second and third right in a row.
5. Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness – This is the second book in the All Souls Trilogy, and the third recently came out, so now I really want to pick up this book and the final one so I can read them together!
6. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – I really want to read this one, and I’ve been on the library waitlist for ages, so I think I just need to buy my own copy. I’ve got to read it before the movie comes out this fall!
7. A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan- This one sounds great, and I loved the sample I read online, so I just need to buy my own copy and read it.
8. The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker – This is another one that I’ve been on the library waitlist for a very long time, and I should just go and buy it already because I really want to read it.
9. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller – I’ve checked this out of the library a couple times but always seem to run out of time to read it, so I think I just need to buy myself a copy.
10. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey – This sounds like a very exciting, end of the world, action-adventure book and I’ve had my eye on it for awhile.
