Top Ten Tuesday

This week's topic is:
Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

Raw Blue by Kirsty Eager
 - I wanted this so badly that I imported it. From Australia. Alas, it sits on my shelf unread.

The Host by Stephenie Meyer - Bought this when it cam out, still haven't opened it.

The Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld - My boyfriend bought me the last two books because he saw I had the first two (back when people still bought me books). I haven't opened any of them yet.

Scarlett Fever by Maureen Johnson - After Suite Scarlett I just had to have this book...so it could sit on my shelf next to the other one.

13 Curses by Michelle Harrison - Really enjoyed 13 Treaures and bought this one right as it came out.

All You Desire by Kirsten Miller
 - Loved The Eternal Ones! Still haven't read this one.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - I know!

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins - Loved Anna, have a signed copy of this and yet it sits untouched on my shelf...WHY?

Teeth by Hannah Moskowitz - I love all of Hannah's books, but I'm nervous that eventually I will be disappointed one person can not posses so much amazingness. Can they?

Damned by Chuck Palahniuk - Really the last few Palahnuik books hang out on my shelf together, unread. I don't know what to say.  

The Broke and the Bookish is a group of college aged and twenty somethings that have an unhealthy obsession with reading and would spend every last penny on books even if it meant skipping a few meals. We are the people  who lurk in the library, buy handbags based on how many books can be stashed in them, and who refer to characters in books as if they are personal friends.
We sought after other bookish college students to share in our love for reading and were brought together by the College Students group on Goodreads that was created in September 2008. Our desire to share great books with each other in and our tendency to be opinionated and passionate about all things book related naturally led to the birth of The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010.


  1. It took me awhile to read TFIOS as well. But I am glad that I finally did. And Lola is great. I liked Anna better, but Lola has CRICKET BELL!

    Happy Reading :)

  2. Several of these are on my bookshelf also and I have yet to read them! TFIOS is on my TBR list for THIS month (finally!) and I know we mentioned reading it at the same time SO I am planning on starting it this Friday *crosses fingers* and maybe you can join me so we can chat about it on Twitter :)


Hello readers! I love comments, so please feel free to leave them. I do comment back on every comment I get, though it may take me a couple of days. Thanks for stopping by!
