Top 10 Tuesday: Top 10 Books on my TBR List

Top 10 Tuesday is an original feature/regular meme hosted at The Broke and The Bookish!

This week the Top 10 List focuses on our TBR! What books top your TBR List? 

Here are mine:
  1.  Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick I cannot wait for this to be released! I love this series.
  2.  Shine by Jeri Ready-Smith Ok, this is a far off dream seeing how it doesn't come out until next May, but whatever! I'm obsessively waiting for it!
  3.  The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater I recently read her Wolves of Mercy Falls series and I fell in love with her writing. I'm excited to read this!
  4. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi I've heard tons of good things about this book and it looks really good!
  5. Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay The cover is beautiful and I love re-tellings of old stories.
  6. Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini  I'm a sucker for cover gorgeousness! And the summary is interesting and I think I'll love it. 
  7. All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin  This book doesn't seem like something I'd normally pick up. I like the cover, but the story seems quite unusual and that actually makes me want to read it. I've also heard really good things about it. 
  8. Across the Universe by Beth Revis I'm currently on hold for this at the library and have been for ages. Unfortunately I'm #5 in line. Saaaad! I really like sci-fi actually (big Farscape fan) and I rarely come across YA sci-fi. If anyone has any recommendations, I'd love to hear some! I also have to say this has one of the most beautiful covers I've literally ever seen. 
  9. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand The second book to Unearthly! I wish this would come out tomorrow! 
  10. A Temptation of Angels by


  1. I'm really looking forward to Shatter Me; I too have been hearing good things about it.

    Off to check out a few others from the list...I really need to learn to read faster! (Or quit my day job. Or something!)

  2. Silence is on my list too!


  3. Ditto on Hallowed! I loved Unearthly, and I can't wait until Hallowed is released!!

  4. @BJ Well, I'm waiting to get a job, because I need to have my license before I can practice and that's nice because it gives me tons of time to read! Unfortunately it also equals being dirt poor! EITHER WAY, IT'S A LOSE LOSE SITUATION! :D

    @Dead Trees It definitely should come out sooner! :)

    @Book Junkie Me too! I wish all of these would come out soon!

    Thank you all for stopping by and commenting! :)

  5. Gabrielle Zevin's other book, ELSEWHERE, was so weird that I had to put it down, and I write pretty oddball stuff myself. But if you really like it, I might give this new one a try...

    If you desire to do so, please check out my Top Ten Tuesday Post. Thanks!

  6. I hate waiting for good books!

    It was easy to put together my Top Ten list this week,Top Ten Books That Are at the Top of My TBR for Fall! And tomorrow is the last day to sign up for the Readerbuzz August Giveaway!

  7. Across the Universe was a really good read. Really different than everything else out there.

    Sash & Em: A Tale of Two Bookies

  8. Starcrossed is on m TBR too!! I'm still waiting to start the Becca Fitzpatrick series but I know how much you like them so I'll bump them up the list :)

  9. I want to read Starcrossed, too! And as far YA sci-fi, I recommend The Adoration of Jenna Fox, if you haven't read that one already - it's strange but a good read!

  10. @Uomo I haven't read Elswhere yet. Maybe I should try it out. :) Thanks for stopping by.

    @Deb Me too! Well, I left a lot of books out that are actually sitting around my house. I have a mountain going on at the moment! :D Thanks for commenting!

    @Sash & Em That's why I'm interested in it! You don't over see sci-fi based books in the YA world - at least I don't! I'm excited about it!

    @Lan Yesss, bump them up! They're really good! I hope you like them! :) Thanks for commenting! :)

    @TG Thank you for the recommendation! Going to go put that on my list! I can usually deal with strange! I think I've actually seen it around, but didn't pay attention. :) Thanks for stopping by!

  11. I have a few of these on my TBR too. I wish I had done this meme but I'm not certain I could have stopped at 10. Ha!

  12. We're so alike, Liza! A bunch of those books that you can't wait to read are ones that I'm super excited for too! Especially Hallowed (because I ADORED Unearthly!) and Shatter Me (because I just know it's gonna be awesome -- Tahereh has the funniest blog!).

    Awesome list, Liza! :)

  13. Great list, I have a lot of thse books on my fall TBR list as well! I am hoping that I can read a little more in September than I did in August!

  14. Totally agree! These are all on my TBR too! I meant to read some of them when they first came out -- like Across the Universe -- but there just isn't enough time for everything O_O

  15. @Cristina: Yeah, I had to force myself - my TBR list is massive!

    @Mimi We are! :] So many good books coming out!

    @Bonnie I ended up reading 30 books in August, so I'm hoping to beat my record, but I'm not sure it can be done! D: There are only so many hours... :D

    @Casey I know what you mean - I finally have Across the Universe sitting in my house! Finally! I've been waiting for it at the library for forever and now that it's here I have a bazillion other books piled up! D:
