There are a million and one books I'd love to read but don't own yet. My TBR pile is already something I never want to think about or look at, but add all the books I want to read and it's trouble. What's even worse is that I'm terrible at prioritizing the books I'd like to read vs. books I borrow from the library — I tend to save all the books I really want to read, which basically means I don't read the books I REALLY want to read. But that's all a different story ... SO, here are the books I'd like to own and read someday (but not before I finish the books I already have!):
1. Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson
I went through a (very short) phase where I would not read a book if I didn't own it, even if I REALLY wanted to. Thankfully I realized that I was being dumb, but I still haven't made time to pick this up yet! This would have been a perfect summer read.
2. Alienated by Melissa Landers
I borrowed this from my school's library last semester but I didn't get a chance to finish it. The concept is really strange but cool, so I'm hoping to pick it up again and continue onward.
3. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This book (and entire trilogy) has been out for such a long time, but I'm having a difficult time choosing the covers I want ... yeah, #firstworldproblems.
4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
All I know is that I need to hurry up and read this already.
5. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Yes, I STILL haven't read this after I talked about it in my "Top 5 Most Embarrassing Unread Books" post. I really want the B&N collector's edition, but I'm also trying to hold back on buying too many books.
6. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins
There was so much buzz after a bunch of booktubers got together and read this one. The cover is very girly and I heard it was funny. Funny's my kind of thing. So me and this book should have a pretty fun time.
7. To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han
Another book I haven't read but really need to. I haven't heard a single bad thing about this one and I really love Jenny Han.
8. Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
I don't think I've read a single new adult romance novel, but I really want to read this specific one after hearing how much Kassidy and Riley loved it.
9. Landline by Rainbow Rowell
This one is a recent release so I'm not too mad at myself about this one, but I love everything that Rainbow Rowell writes and need to read everything she has ever written. If she wrote an essay on physics, I'd like to read it right now please.
10. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
This one makes me so sad ... I don't know what else to say because I sound like a recording machine but I NEED THIS ONE SO BAD.
I feel overwhelmed after looking over the books I'd like to own and read. There are way too many and I know I could never finish all the books. Can publishers please stop publishing books for like one year and let me catch up?! That would be kinda nice.
Which book would you recommend I read first? Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What is on your list of "books I want to read but don't own yet"?
