Voila, yet another Top Ten Tuesday, as always hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. If you need any more information about this week book meme, feel free to check out the link I just provided.
This week’s top ten list will have to consist of…
Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don’t Own Yet
God, where do I even begin with this list. I glance over at my TBR-list on Goodreads and spot…209 books that I still need to read. Do you know what that means? That means that I have approximately 170 books that I really want to read but don’t own, seeing as I know I have about 20 to 30 books on that list that I do own. Needless to say, making a top ten is going to be both easy and difficult.
1 & 2 – Cress by Marissa Meyer and The Impossibility of Tomorrow by Avery Williams
I want these two books so bad, I’ve wanted these books for so, so long — I can hardly bear waiting any longer. Cress is obviously the third book in The Lunar Chronicles, which — if you haven’t read yet, go read it, it’s amazing — and The Impossibility of Tomorrow is the sequel to The Alchemy of Forever (side note: you can read that review here). I loved that book to death, it was so much fun to read and I need the sequel in hardcover to match my hardcover copy of the first and just yes. Yes.
3 & 4 – The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey and Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
Anyone who knows me knows that I love me some Richelle Mead and when I heard she was publishing new books I was like, “must have”. Too bad my finances do not agree. Do I need to say any more about The Infinite Sea? I think this might be one of the most anticipated book releases of this autumn and I can’t wait to have it myself, probably for Christmas. The 5th Wave was amazing, so I can’t wait to continue the story.
5 & 6 – Winterspell by Claire Legrand and Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
I recently saw Winterspell on Goodreads and I just had to put it on my TBR list. It is another fairytale retelling, this time of The Nutcracker, which was one of my favorite (turned into a Barbie-movie…) stories to read and watch with Christmas. I cannot wait for this to be published, I just– I want it. I need it. Of Poseidon is just something I think I’d love, I’ve been waiting for a good book to be published with this aquatic topic and yes. Give it to me.
7 & 8 – Zodiac by Romina Russell and The Whole Golden World by Kristina Riggle
The moment I saw he cover for Zodiac I was like, “Sold! So very sold!” I put this on my wish list, tweeted about it and even had some of my relatives go, “Yeah, I know you want that book with the rainbow cover.” For some reason the idea of the 13th zodiac immediately made me think of an anime I love dearly called Fruits Basket and, well, just for that fact alone I want it. The Whole Golden World by Kristina Riggle was a book recommendation made by one of the booktubers I follow and I just really wanted to read this story? It’s about a girl having a relationship with a teacher and … yeahhhh, messy. It’s definitely something outside of the comfort zone I guess, and I can’t wait to read it.
9 & 10 – Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke and Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke
Damsel Distressed is a book I very recently spotted on Netgalley — it’s a story about ‘the ugly stepsister’, the one you never hear about because the pretty, hot sisters always get the attention — and I’d written it down to request and now it’s… gone. I can’t find it anymore, it must’ve been archived and it upsets me a lot. I have no choice but to add it to my wishlist and hope someone buys it for me. I saw Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea in a haul video I watched that a booktuber had put up, I heard the story, saw the cover and wanted it. This has been on my wish list for a while now.
So yep, these were my ten choices for this weeks Top Ten Tuesday — I sort of tried to rank them from most important to not but in all honesty I want all of these books so badly and I just, I’m crossing my fingers that all of them will be under the Christmas tree because if not, I will have to wait until next Christmas and that is… horrible.
I hope you enjoyed the read, maybe we have some similarities, maybe you’ve read some of these books — let me know in the comments and if you’ve done this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, don’t forget to link me.
Thank you so much for reading and have a lovely day!
