Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Had to Buy

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

This weeks top is books I had to buy but never read. I actually have quite a few of these, mostly from a few years ago. I've gotten better about buying (or not buying) books.

  1. Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey- There has been a lot of buzz about this book (or at least there used to be). I bought it and was pretty excited to read it--but never did. 
  2. Jonas by Eden Maguire- I actually picked this one up at the grocery store. I probably could have passed on this one.
  3. Haven by Kristi Cook- I got this discounted when Borders went out of business. 
  4. Lipstick Apology by Jennifer Jabaley- I bought this for a couple of dollars at my local outlet bookstore. 
  5. Ophelia by Lisa Klein- Ditto
  6. A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee- Bought this for super cheap when my local Hasting went out of business. 
  7. Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton- Ditto. 
  8. Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers- Got this when it came out. I've heard it's really good but the size just intimidated me. 
  9. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood- Bought this when it first came out, too. I actually read about half of it, but never finished. Not because it was bad or anything. I just started reading other things.
  10. Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler- This one I just bought at a book event.
In conclusion, bargain priced books are what get me in trouble. I definitely buy those more than anything even if I didn't intend to read them prior to that. 

So, any books you think I should read like right now?
