Top Ten Tuesday: Books I just had to buy… but are still sitting on my bookshelf

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s theme is ten signs you’re a book lover, and I think the first thing I want to say about this theme is that there’s no right or wrong way to love books! It doesn’t matter if you have a huge collection of books you’ve bought or if you get everything from the library. It doesn’t matter if you read five or five hundred books each year. If you like books, you’re a book lover.

So since I don’t like this week’s theme, I’m going back into the archives to do a theme that I missed! Without further ado, here are ten books I just had to buy… but are still sitting on my bookshelf, way back from March of 2011.


Vengeful by V.E. Schwab

Heartstopper, Vol. 2 by Alice Oseman

Solitaire by Alice Oseman

Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

Hot Dog Girl by Jennifer Dugan

The Last Hope by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Educated by Tara Westover

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas

The Year of Shadows by Claire Legrand

      I have the physical copy of Educated, but I might be more likely to listen to the audio. I’ll have to see if it’s available at the library! And that’s great about Wayward Son! I’m reading it now and not sure what I think yet, but my fingers are crossed that I’ll end up loving it as much as Carry On!

    I want to read On the Come Up, but I’m not sure how much is actual interest and how much is the hype. (Then again, whichever it was that got me to read THUG was right, since I adored it.) Since the genres are all over the board here, you could pick whichever suits your mood … or just the shortest one and try to knock one off.
