The Broke and the Bookish
This week's topic: Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2011.. you know all those ones you keep saying you are going to get to but haven't yet. No more procrastination in 2011!
1. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I just need to finish this. The first half was great, but for some reason I had to put it down to do or read something else.
2. The Host by Stephenie Meyer
People really like this, whether they liked Twilight or not, and I've been trying to read it for a while. But I refused to pay $16 for the paperback. I now have it and plan to read it before winter is through.
3. Going Bovine by Libba Bray
I've been wanting this book since before it was released, but I don't (didn't) like hardbacks (weird I know), so I wanted to wait for the paperback. Now I have it but still haven't gotten to it. What am I waiting for?!!
4. Ash by Malinda Lo
I've been wanting this book all of last year, but it took me all of last year just to get it.
5. Feeling Sorry for Celia by Jaclyn Moriarty
I went crazy when I found out that The Ghosts of Ashbury High was apart of a series and that I had three more before it to read starting with this one. I have it, now all I have to do is read it!
6. The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
I saw the Book Smugglers review of it and have wanted to read it ever since.
7. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
I had this for a while now, but for whatever reason I picked other books over it.
8. Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
I was half way through this when my 1st year exams started, and I haven't gotten back to it since.
9. Fire by Kristin Cashore
I loved Graceling but I still haven't gotten Fire!
10. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
People have gushed over this! I want to be a fan girl too but I probably need to read it first.
