Top Ten Books I HAD to Buy...But are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

It's time for another round of Top Ten Tuesday!  This time it's those books that I was convinced that I absolutely needed, yet still have not read.  Normally, I like to provide little explanations as to why everything winds up on my Top Ten Tuesday lists, but let's cut the crap.  My reasons for buying these are mostly the same: they are books that have gotten rave reviews, have utterly gorgeous covers, and that just sounded awesome to me.  I'm going to let the books speak for themselves. 

1.) Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh


2.) Divergent by Veronica Roth


3.) The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach


4.) Seraphina by Rachel Hartman


5.) The List by Siobhan Vivian

6.) Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel

 7.) Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins


8.) Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt


9.) The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde

10.) Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

  3. I LOVED Divergent. You should definitely read that one. I want to read the Hex Hall series as well, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

  4. I loved Seraphina. It has a great audiobook too, if you want to listen to it on the way to work or something. Divergent is also on my to-read list.

  5. Ha, DIVERGENT made my TTT list as well. I gave up on DEARLY,DEPARTED and passed it on to my sister. SERAPHINA hasn't been hanging around long enough for me to feel too guilty just yet :)
