TOP TEN TUESDAY [#3] Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Here we list our top ten picks for a certain topic. This week's topic is:

Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

Ugh! Yes, I'm a book hoarder. And there's a lot of books on my shelf that are collecting dust. Not literally, though. I want my books dust-free. ^_^ But you get my point. I buy them, then I forget about them. Mostly because I get sidetracked by other books. I feel so guilty sometimes but what can I do? I have the attention span of a five-year-old, goodness! 

BUT! Yes, there's a but. This year I promise to myself that I'm going to read them. Probably not all of them, but hopefully these ten books will be read soon:

I know! I'm so awful for letting those awesome books neglected. I'm getting to them soon, pinky promise!

You know what to do, lovelies! Leave me some comments, links to your own Top Ten Tuesday, a piece of your mind, whatever. I want to see the unread books on YOUR shelves. *evil grin*

Happy Tuesday!

Julie @ Books and Insomnia

Julie is a Filipina blogger who pretends she has insomnia so she can stay up late reading. When she's not buried in books, she can be found watching anime, drinking chocolate-flavored instant coffee, lurking on the internet, daydreaming and talking about herself in third person. She loves purple and anything sweet!


  1. Sadly, I've not read any of those books... I probably shouldn't acquire them, since I'm already a book hoarder and my unread book list is much larger than ten.

    1. Mine, too! And the list is still growing. I just can't resist those books! :P

  2. I have read TEN unfortunately McNeil's debut, POSSESS, has been sitting in my TBR for a really long time!

  3. Ten is on my list, as well! And you simply must read If I stay..It's one of my all time favourites!

    My Top Ten

    1. A lot of people have been telling me that. Thanks! :)

  4. If I Stay is AHMMMMAZZZZING! I liked Catching Jordan as well, though not as much as a lot of people, I think. Easy probably could have made my list as well. I read a review for it and I was like, "I NEEEEED IT." I started reading it, but never finished. Oopsie daisies!

    Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. I love love your reaction! You are AHMMMMAZZZZING! ^___^ Thanks for the comment! I think I'm going to rearrange my TBR pile and put If I Stay on the top. ohmygods I'm so excited!

  5. Great list! Thanks for stopping by my blog -- new follower

    Easy and Catching Jordan are both so, SO good! I just finished the Statistical Probability and it wasn't my favorite. The Existence series by Abbi Glines is a fun series, too

    All Books Considered

  6. I've been meaning to read Ten as well, maybe soon, I have a long TBR pile. Happy reading!

    My TTT

  7. Statistical Probability was fun. If I Stay was phenomenal, Where She Went not as much, for me, but still very good. We seem to have similar tastes. Thanks for dropping by my TTT!

  8. I LOVED If I Stay and Easy, hope you enjoy them.

    Thanks for stopping by my My Top 10 Tuesday

  9. I just got The Statistical Probability of Love and Catching Jordan on my Nook (I got a free $50 giftcard for buying my nook so I have to buy books in 30 days!)... and I am so trying not to let them go unread!

  10. I like your shelf ;) I don't actually own any of these apart from Easy, but Ten, Existence, and Statistical Probability... have been on my TBR list for forever! You're not the only one getting sidetracked by other books, by the way ^^'
    Thanks for stopping by yesterday!
