Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted by the Broke and the Bookish (http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com/).
This week the Top Ten List is Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read in 2011! Seeing as there are many posts on my blog relating to future books that I can't wait to read, I'll limit this list to books that I should have read in 2010 and haven't....yet. So here it goes:
1. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
I feel like the only person in the world who hasn't read this book as yet and I have read some very positive reviews. With such a beautiful cover I could hardly resist but there were so many other great books that I had to read first. So Nightshade will be first this year (I think!).
2. Matched by Ally Condie
Since reading Uglies I've become quite fond of dystopian books and I have not gotten around to Matched yet. Seeing as the hype surrounding this book is so huge I am really itching to get into these pages!
3. The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
I love the cover of this book and essentially covers are what first draws me to a book, but I must say the story sounds interesting as well. I will definitely be giving this book a try early in the new year.
I am not big on reading books when I have already seen the series, the movies and bought the T-shirt! Hehe! But I want to make an exception of Sex and the City because I am a BIG fan! I hope I am not disappointed though, as is often the case when you read the book after you saw the movie or vice versa.
5. Bridget Jones' Diary by Helen Fielding
Ditto with Bridget Jones! I have watched these movies almost a million times and can repeat the words whilst watching (sad I know!). I am cautiously optimistic that the books will be just as good, and I have resolved to make 2011 the year in which I finally read these books!
6. Evernight by Claudia Grey
I have been hesitant to read these books, although they have been standing on my bookshelf FOREVER. Seeing as I'm participating in Parajunkee's Vampire Challenge this year as well as some series challenges, I believe I should give these a try at last.
Hmmm... Seems that this Dystopian thing might become an addiction. This book caught my attention mainly because the concern over clean water's sustainability as a resource is a problem which is quite close to home and of course a worldwide problem. Thankfully I can just get lost in the fiction of this story for the moment.
What can I say? I've seen it, heard about it, eventually bought it and now I want to READ it! Hehe! Fits in nicely with all the challenges see...
9. Stork by Wendy Delsol
Well I have this very irritating task relating to Norse Mythology in one of the Challenges I am taking part in this year and I whilst looking for something to read came across this book, which looks like something that I might like. Anyone read it or have any comments on it?
10. Fire by Kristin Kashore
I have started reading and stopped reading this book on and of for the past year and frankly it is starting to bug me that I can't seem to finish it. I loved Graceling and I'm sure Bitterblue will be good, so why oh why can't I finish this book. I will be making it my mission to finish this book this year.
