Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted at The Broke and The Bookish
Have you seen the covers of Beth Revis' Across the Universe series? (Don't get me started on the cover changes, because I'm trying my best to ignore those.) Of course I had to buy this book. Too bad I never actually got around to reading it, but I think I put it on my top 10 books I resolve to read in 2013, so um. I better get started!
Everyone has been raving about Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke and Bone and I almost bought this book SO many times. But I finally decided that I should get to this series already because it looks AWESOME. It will be bought soon.
I bought Christopher Paolini's Eragon about five years ago, and it has been sitting on my shelf since then. I actually quite enjoyed the movie of this one as well, even though most people who read the book weren't that pleased with it. I just... you guys, this book is BIG. The rest of the series is even BIGGER. I need to make time for it.
Basically, Amber made me buy Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. And I haven't read it yet. Which makes no sense, because hello, it sounds amazing and everyone's raving about it and oh my god I need to start this now. But yeah. I haven't.
I have been so terrible with reading fantasy lately. I used to be IN LOVE with fantasy, but I just haven't gotten around to it for a while. But thank goodness, a lot of the books on my spring TBR are fantasy, and Graceling by Kristin Cashore definitely deserves a place on that list. I mean, it looks so good.
Oh, why haven't I read this series yet? You know how you just have to buy some books? Okay, honestly I never really thought of reading Julie Kagawa's Iron King until I started book blogging and I kept seeing this EVERYWHERE. I bought it a while ago and I will get to this one soon. Ish.
So here's the deal: I really enjoyed Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments, but I stopped after the first three. I do own the other books in that series, but I haven't had the time or motivation to pick them up yet since I heard it sort of goes downhill after book 3. The Infernal Devices, on the other hand, have received such great reviews and I love the historical aspect of it and I heard it's better than TMI and... now I want to pick it up asap.
Ha, I'm cheating a little since this is next up on my TBR pile. I never planned on reading Cynthia Hand's Unearthly until a few weeks ago, when everyone started talking about it again and I just had to buy a pretty shiny copy of my own. Definitely excited for this series, plus I can read them all, which is always a good thing!
I also like to nominate The Kane Chronicles. Oh come on, you know me. I cheat on lists. And video games, and board games, and pretty much anything. I blame my mom. But yes, I want to read both of these series since, hello, it's RICK RIORDAN and Percy Jackson is one of my favorite series and I've always had a love for mythology and... *moves it up the list*
Don't hit me *hides*. Yes, I am one of those people who hasn't started this series yet, even though I adore the TV series. It's just... have you seen the SIZE of these books?! I barely made it through Lord of the Rings a few years back (not because I didn't love it, but because it was a lot). However, I won a copy from the lovely Gaby and Melissa and I'm DEFINITELY starting this one soon! I mean, if even Cassie loves it...
Honorable mentions: Wither, Legend and Uglies. I have the first book of all of them and need to freaking start those because I HAVE NO EXCUSE.
Tell me, which should be on top of my list? Have you read any of these?
