Top Ten Tuesday (4): Books Everyone has Read but Me

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. For more information visit here.

This week is Top Ten Books I feel that everyone has read except me. Actually, most the books on my list aren't even out yet. And yet, I feel that everyone has had a chance to read them.

  1. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins- I think people have been getting ARCS since BEA, or maybe even before. And there are a lot of people who have already read this book. I'm not sure if I could name anyone who hasn't. I know, there are some people who have also not read this, but i just can't think of any.
  2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin- Pretty much everything I said for Lola goes for this one, too. Ugh, I love the cover so much!
  3. The Future of Us by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler- Ditto.
  4. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- I've been hearing such good things about this one, including that it may be one of the best books of 2011. I really want to read it!
  5. Bite Club by Rachel Caine- I just picked a random book in the series. I really enjoyed the first one, second was decent, and I couldn't get into the third. Will I continue this series? Maybe. Everyone seems to really like it. But not anytime soon.
  6. Shift by Jerri Smith-Ready- I guess I'm the only one, but I did not enjoy the first one that much. Everyone says the second is good, too. I keep thinking I should give it another try, but I can't bring myself to do it. 
  7. Supernaturally by Kirsten White- Pretty much everything I said about Shift is the same for this one. Paranormalcy was so highly talked about and rated, and I just couldn't get into it. Maybe I'm crazy. 
  8. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey- This one has been on my shelf for forever. I just need to read it because I've heard amazing things about it. 
  9. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins- Same as Jessica's Guide
  10. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Septeys- I remember when this book first came out and everyone talked about how amazing it was. I need to read it. 
So, that's about it. Are there any books you feel everyone has read but you? let me know!


  1. Jessica's Guide and Hex Hall are both very cute and quick reads. I agree with your comment about so many people getting to read books before they are released! I feel that way about The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer! Here is my list http://wp.me/pzUn5-zF

  2. Mara Dyer is AMAZING!!! But at the same time the ending really leaves you wanting. Hex Hall was a cute, fast read and my cousin loved Between Shades of Gray (though I haven't read it yet myself).
    I haven't read Lola either but I can't wait to get a copy so that I can. Same with Kirsten White's novels.
    Happy reading!
