Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me


1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
     - Uhm... Yeeeaahh... I haven't read it. *Hides in shame!*
2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
     - Everyone's talking about it and I feel extremely out of place when this is mentioned.
3. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
     - I've been reading a lot of great reviews about it since, like... last year.
4. The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
     - It's everywhere! Blogs, bookstores, just everywhere! 
5. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard
     - I've watched the TV Series but unfortunately I haven't started on reading the book yet.
6. The Giver by Lois Lowry
     - Yup. Haven't read it either. I don't know if I will though. What do you think?
7. Percy Jackson by Rick Roirdan
     - I love mythology and I don't understand why I haven't read this yet.
8. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
     - I think there are three book of this series already, am I right? 
9. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
     - Ah yes, the ever controversial book. I need to grab a copy of this... someday.
10. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
     - I have this on my shelf. I started reading it but stopped when I got a new book. Up until now I couldn't find myself to open it again.

I guess the main reason for not being able to read these books is because there are so much books that are coming out each week that it pushes them deeper into my TBR list. I hope I do get the chance to read these though.


  1. This is a wonderful list of books. Maybe you can attempt to read a couple of these every year. I'd suggest you start with The Giver.

  2. Tut tut go and read Harry potter immediately, then read Percy Jackson! The summoning is great to.
    I've not read speak either, it's on my wish list though lol

  3. I enjoyed The Body Finder quite a bit. I think you would enjoy it as long as you like the paranormal murder mystery type books. Some people wrote about it and didn't like the bit of violence and I was like, "It's called The Body Finder, what did you think it was about?"

  4. Anna and the French Kiss is definitely a must-read! It's a really cute book.

    And yes, do read Harry Potter and Percy Jackson! I've come to love both these series :)

  5. Dont feel bad. I havent read Harry Potter either. *hides* lol. I have Anna and the French Kiss on my list also.

  6. I haven't read Percy Jackson either. I'm dying to read it though, because I love Greek mythology!

    Books of Amber

  7. Ack! I've had the system delete three of my posts. So anyhow, read Potter eventually but don't do it until you're ready to commit to seven books all in one go, because once you start you won't be able to stop. Anna, Speak and Book Thief are all excellent for different reasons -- Anna is the most fun to read, Speak is a great message book, and the Book Thief will leave you in tears. Clockwork is fun historical fantasy, and the second comes out soonish, so it might be a good place to start.

    Here's my list at Teen Lit Rocks

  8. AH! THE PERCY JACKSON SERIES!!! The mythology aspect is great, but I love the humor. And they're so easy to read, you can easily finish one book in a matter of hours. Stop procrastinating! JUST KIDDING!

    But really, you should read them :)

  9. Hi Janus!

    Nice list, and like you I haven't read some of them too, most notable of which is Lowry's "The Giver" along with Zusak's "The Book Thief". I agree that there maybe something wrong with me/us for overlooking these books in the YA genre.

    My warm regards and happy reading! ^_^


I really appreciate your thoughts and I hope you take the time to drop me a line. Thanks! ^_^
