Top Ten Tuesday: And so I do vow

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Check em out. They kinda rule.

List time! Woot.

This week's topic is:

Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013:

Let me preface my choices by explaining that these are all books that have been on my literal  bookshelf for months, dare I say a year or more? For one reason or another I keep overlooking them. No more i say! I now resolve, here and now, to read these books before the end of 2013! Or at the very least, 2014...

1. The Fault in Our Stars (John Green)- Don't hurt me. I know the brilliance of this man's writing (only in the past couple months). I know I'm going to love this book long time, but I've been putting it off because I recently watched someone very close to me suffer and die from cancer and I just couldn't bring myself to crack it open.  Welp. I started it today. I'm already in love with it. I know it's going to rip my heart to shreds. But I'm ready.

2. Delirium (Lauren Oliver)- Oh man. I couldn't tell you how long I've owned this book. Well, at least since it came out. I think I read a couple chapters and wasn't really in to it so I put it aside. Time to  break it back out!

3. Bitterblue (Kristin Cashore) - As much as I completely LOVE Graceling, there's only one reason I have yet to devour this one. I don't really remember much about the first two books (other then their amazingness) and thus, need to reread them before I attack this giant gem.
Bitterblue (Graceling Realm, #3)

4. Blood Red Road (Moira Young)- So I actually own two copies of this book and won the second book (Rebel Heart) in a giveaway. The story has been compared to The Hunger Games. And whilst I hold no hope of this book being anywhere near the greatness of that much loved series, I want to give it a go.

Blood Red Road (Dust Lands, #1)
5. Slice of Cherry (Dia Reeves)- I had been wanting to read this book for a long time, then I bought the book at a sale and then sat it neatly upon my shelf (okay floor) where it has since stayed, untouched.  Love the cover.

6. The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern)- I got this book as a gift Christmas 2011. Obviously it was high on my read priority list.

 7. Bloodlines (Richelle Mead)- This author's Vampire Academy series is one of my all-time favorites. I don't know why I haven't started the companion series yet.  I know it's going to be just as brilliant.

Bloodlines (Bloodlines, #1)
8. Knightley Academy (Violet Haberdasher) - First off, let me just point out the author's name. Saweet. I love the time period of knights and such and this book was originally on one of my Waiting on Wednesday posts. I bought it at a book sale over a year ago. I needs some more knightly men (boys?) in my life.

9. Bared to You (Sylvia Day)- SO. The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy was my first foray into the enticing world of erotica. And I loved it. I'm looking for more! I've heard good things about this book.
Bared to You (Crossfire, #1)
10. Nevermore (Kelly Creagh)- I love me some dark broody boys.
Nevermore (Nevermore, #1)


  1. The night Circus should have been on my list too! I want to read it really badly! The Fault in our Stars was good too. I want to read Bloodlines, but I have to finish the Vampire Academy series first! Great list!

    1. I'm reading The Fault in Our Stars right now...oh man. So freaking good! Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. I loved Delirium & The Night Circus, so I hope you get to them soon :-) I hope to get to (finish) Fault In Our Stars this year too!

    1. Well looks like I just might need to move those book up on my to-read list!

  3. Delirium is one of my favorite books ever. TFiOS was great! I need to read Blood Red Road, The Night Circus, & start reading Richelle Mead this year! Great list!

  4. Oh man, so many books I'm hoping to get into in 2012 INCLUDING the Delirium Series, the Graceling Series, Blood Red Road & The Night Circus!

    I hope you manage to read all the books on your list ;) happy reading!
