Top Ten Tuesday (11)

This week is novels that have been sitting prettily on my shelf and doing absolutely nothing for ages. There are many such novels that I own – such is the albatross of the avid bookworm – and the hard thing about this week was choosing only ten... and finding the older ones.
So, in no particular order, my picks are;

1. The Private series by Kate Brian
I have all the books, just not the time to read all of them. I really want to, though. I loved the Privilege series!
2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
It’s described as being kind of like The Hunger Games – and I love The Hunger Games so much!
3. Alpha by Rachel Vincent
This is one of my favourite adult paranormal series of books but I just can’t bring myself to read it! I don’t want the series to be over.
4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling
This is where my whole hypothesis of the Harry Potter Syndrome stems from.
5. Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz
I picked up the first novel in this series at a used book store because I had seen the novels around in book stores and the covers are pretty.
6. The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
Another gorgeous cover I’ve never cracked open. I really enjoyed the first in the trilogy though.
7. Novels 2-4 of The Luxe series by Anna Godberson
Loved he first, ran out the buy the next three, and never got around to reading them.
8. Once Upon a Dreadful Time by Dennis L. McKiernan
This is the fifth and final book in a series. The first is a retelling of East of the Sun, West of the Moon and the next four play off of characters introduced in it. I think that most are combinations of other old folk/fairy tales but it’s been so long since I read any of them that I can’t be certain.
9. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
I bought the Swedish movie cover of this novel one Christmas on a stranger’s recommendation at Chapters. I’ve been told it’s amazing after the first 100 pages.
10. The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
Yeah. Another novel (for there are many more than this list shows) I waited ages for the paperback to come out to match my other novels in the trilogy and nadda.

As always, check out The Broke and the Bookish for more Top Ten fun!
