Topic Tuesdays! Top 10 books I had to buy… but are still sitting on my bookshelf

Hello fellow bookworms! We’ve all been there right? you heard really good reviews about a book so you had to buy it and days, months sometimes years later they’re still sitting unread on your bookshelf! I always have the best of intentions to read them but then other books come out and I get distracted! What is the book you’ve had on your shelf for the longest?


Frostblood by Elly Blake

I think I received this from a trade and I really want to get round to reading this because the premise sounds so interesting. Concealed powers, rebels and a good romance arc what more could a girl want?

This Mortal Coil Emily Suvada

I love a good science fiction novel and this came highly recommended to me by a friend. I’m definitely feeling the pressure to read this now that the sequel is coming out!

Tess of the Road Rachel Hartman

Dragons! This book has dragons, and if that wasn’t a good enough reason for me to buy it, I’d read and loves Hartmans Seraphina, so I was sure to love this one as well.

Kiss of Deception by Mary E Pearson

After hearing rave review after rave review about the remnant chronicles I went out and bought all three books at once. This is a series i’m dying to read but just haven’t had the chance to dig into it yet.

Vicious by V E Schwab

I know I know … I’m late to the party on this one. I loved Schwab’s ADSOM series but struggled to get into her monsters of verity series. It didn’t put me off buying Vicious but I think it may be the reason its still on my TBR shelf.

Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel

This was another book I was recommended by a friend, she really struggled to describe it to me, she just told me it was a book I had to read and so I bought it.

Mindhunter by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker

I was so gripped by the netflix series of this book and have read other books by Douglas so this was an easy buy for me. Its a book I definitely intend on reading, I love books about profiling and dark gritty true crime.

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

I bought this after I’d heard they were making it into a TV series and wanted to read the book before it aired. That’s still my intention but I’ll need to get a move on!

Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero

Scooby Doo for adults! Even if I hadn’t read The Supernatural Enhancements I still would have picked this up based on that alone.

Wool by Hugh Howey

This is another series where I bought all the books in one go. It was described as Hunger Games for adults, and the premise seemed so interesting that they were an easy buy.
