Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don’t Own Yet

Hello again! Today I’m linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for their weekly feature, Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s prompt is: 

top ten books i really want to read but don’t own yet

1. Anatomy of a Misfit by Andrea Portes.

I saw a sort of good, sort of bad review of this book over at Goodreads, and it said to read the book, if only for the ending. I certainly can’t resist such a mystery!

2. The Twistrose Key by Tone Almhjell.

This book looks really interesting! I can’t wait to read it. 

3. Loki’s Wolves by K. L. Armstrong.

Norse mythology, hurrah! This book looks super fun and interesting. I can’t wait to read it!

4. The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.

My sister and librarian both liked this book, and it looks very interesting! I can’t wait to read this one.

5. The Quotable Doctor Who: Wise Words from Across Space and Time by Cavan Scott.

This book looked really good! I love quotes, I love Doctor Who-put them together and it should be perfect. Right?

6. Malice by Chris Wooding.

Oooh, horror-y fantasy-y books! Nevillegirl recommended this one to me, and it looks fantastic!

7. Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George.

Castles and heroic princesses! Yay! 

8. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman.

DRAGONS. My librarian recommended this to me, and I can’t wait to read it! because DRAGONS

9. Fairest by Marissa Meyer.

So technically this one’s not been released yet, but hey! It’s not on my shelf. Oooh, so excited for this one. More villain backstory, which is always the best.

10. Bad Girls: Sirens, Jezebels, Murderesses and Other Female Villains by Jane Yolen.

Ooh, all about female criminals, and whether or not they were truly evil or not! This one sounds so interesting, I can’t wait to read it!

 

Well, that’s all for today. Farewell!

Bookshelf Tag

I was nominated for a bookshelf tag by Nevillegirl at Musings From Neville’s Navel! Thanks, Nevillegirl!

                                                                               Rules

Answer the following questions about books on your blog and then tag five other bloggers. You can answer the questions any way you want, whether it’s on your blog, in a video, or a combination of the two. Then remember to let whoever tagged you know when your post is up so they can read it.

Now, the questions!

1. Is there a book that you really want to read but haven’t because you know that it’ll make you cry?

Suzanne Collins’ Gregor the Overlander series. I’ve heard they’re really good but sad. 

2. Pick one book that helped introduce you to a new genre.

C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia introduced me to fantasy, and to my everlasting love-fantasy is my absolute favourite genre!

3. Find a book that you want to reread.

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I loved it, but I can barely remember anything. 

4. Is there a book series you read but wish that you hadn’t?

5. If your house was burning down and all of your family and pets were safe, which book would you go back inside to save?

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. I love that book with a passion, and it’s the prettiest book I own!

6. Is there one book on your bookshelf that brings back fond memories?

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. It’s the first book of hers I read, and I loved the movie even before I read the book, and then I loved the book. 

7. Find a book that has inspired you the most.

Gail Carson Levine’s Ella Enchanted probably inspired me to write the most.

8. Do you have any autographed books?

Sadly, no. Sigh…

9. Find the book that you have owned the longest. 

Probably Catundra or one of Doctor Seuss’ books.

10. Is there a book by an author that you never imagined you would read or enjoy?

I’m sorry, I have no idea! Oops…
