Top Ten Books I just HAD to buy... that are still sitting on my shelf

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created over at my other blog, The Broke and the Bookish. (Nominated for best meme and made it to the final round! Click and vote.)

1-The Eyre Affair- bought it forever ago because I thought it sounded interesting... Still sitting there.
2- The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle- Thought I needed to read some Murakami, still haven't.
3- A Dog's Purpose- I was at my favorite bookish café and the owner's dog was begging me to buy it.
4- Princess Academy- Met Shannon, had to buy this and have her sign it.
5- Unearthly- Yet another I bought because I was at a signing.                 
6- Saving Juliet- I think this one was on sale or something.                      

7-Statistical Probability- So much hype about this online! So I bought it...      
8- The Lost Hero- LOVED his other books so I bought this immediately.       
9- Vampire Academy- Again, I was at a signing and just HAD to buy a book.
10- Scent of Magic- I feel bad about this. I LOVE her books, but I still haven't read it!

So, do you buy books simply because you meet the author and can get it signed? Do you have any books by favorite authors you haven't read yet? What is on your list?? Please leave a comment, make sure to include your link!



  1. UNEARTHLY!! I've just finished Boundless a few days ago and I can safely say it's one of the best angel books I've read ;) The Statistical Probability is a really cute book and gaah I still love that cover. Hope you get to read all these books soon!

  2. Kimberly, I just finished A Touch of Power by Maria V Snyder and really looking forward to reading A Scent of Magic, I just don't know when I'll get the time.

    You have fantastic books on your list I do hope you get the chance to read them.

    My Top Ten

    Have a great week!

  3. I haven't read Unearthly, A Touch of Power or A Scent of Magic, Vampire Academy (though I started this the other day), and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight. They are all on my book shelf waiting for me though. =(

  4. I've only read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and The Lost Hero, but you should DEFINITELY READ BOTH. Especially The Lost Hero. Then again, I still haven't read The Mark of Athena, so I can't really talk.

    I haven't heard of the first 3 on this list, but basically everything else besides the two I've read are very much on my radar. MUST FIND TIME TO READ ALL THE BOOKS. >.<

  5. AAAH! I don't know which I want you to read first, Unearthly, Vampire Academy, Princess Academy or Scent of Magic! I loved all of them! And The Eyre Affair was really good as well!
    I need to catch up on The Lost Hero and The Statistical Probabily of Love at First Sight too, I've been hearing so many good things about them!

  6. I wasn't madly in love with The Eyre Affair. I liked it, but not enough to read any more of the series. I loved The Statistical Probability. It's soooo good. Unearthly and The Lost Hero are good, too.


You know what? You're brilliant! Thanks so much for commenting, I always reply!
