Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

My name is Shelby, and I’m guilty of purchasing books out of pure devotion and admiration, then promptly neglecting them. Anyone else done this? *wide show of hands* Awesome, at least I feel a little better now.
1) Yukon Quest series by Tracie Peterson…honestly, it’s been collecting dust now for at least three years.
2) Jane Austen Collection…a set of four that I’m itching to read but haven’t made the time yet.
3) The Fault in Our Stars…this one barely qualifies for the list, since I have it on my schedule for next week. In bold pen, highlighted. *nods*
4) Delirium…in my defense, I just bought this one recently.
5) Torrent…um…I may or may not have taken a break from the series and kinda forgot about getting back to it…
6) Radical…got it for Christmas, but I will finish it before next December. I will.
7) The Scarlet Pimpernel…a nice hardback copy that’s calling my name at this very instant.
8) Kim…I don’t know. I just haven’t had a hankering for it. *shrugs*
9) Wuthering Heights…quite thick, but a must-read classic. It’d be book-felony to overlook this one.    
10) Great Expectations...even though I could get this one from the library, I know I’d never have enough self-discipline to make myself read it if it wasn’t mine. So I made it mine. And I still haven’t read it. *facepalm*
Any of these books on your list too? Remember to comment or leave a link below!


  1. Ditto on Fault in Our Stars, I've had a copy for a while but haven't gotten to it yet! I hope you stick to your schedule :) And Wuthering Heights is one of my fave books EVER. Totally worth it!!

  2. I think I read the Fault in Our Stars the day it came out. You have some really great titles on your list.

  3. I am not the only one with The Fault in Our Stars on my shelf still unread! I got it for Christmas and just have not got around to it.

  4. Wuthering Heights is one of my favourite reads. It's just so damn good. I really recommend it!

    My Top Ten!

  5. Can't wait for your opinion on Delirium! I've read it at least three times already and am currently reading #2, Pandemonium, which I bought a while ago and am only now getting around to reading it! (See you're not the only one who does that!) It's really good so far though and I've nearly finished it in 24 hours :)
