Top Ten Tuesday: I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read It!

February 4, 2015     The Bluestocking Bookworm     Books, Reading


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the fine folks over at The Broke and the Bookish. They totally rock, so check them out!

OK, OK, OK. I know it is not still Tuesday. Please forgive me for that itty bitty fact. I mean… one second.


So, the topic for this week is “Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read Yet!” and let me tell you, I had ten within about five minutes of browsing my (almost 2300 books long) TBR pile. But these ones stuck out. So, without further rambling, and as always in no particular order, my books!


  • Wicked as They Come by Delilah S. Dawson
    This is a book by someone I know via the perfume oil community I sometimes frequent. (Is that an oxymoron? “Sometimes frequent”) She is a lovely person, and seeing her books in the store here always makes me smile, because it means she is doing well! But I still haven’t read her first one, and seriously it sounds perfect for me so what the frick is wrong with me?
  • Solitaire by Alice Oseman
    This is another I-kind-of know-the-author books, and I really want to support the authors I even kind of know. Alice, I kind-of-know from Tumblr, and she is totally awesome.
  • The Reincarnationist by M.J. Rose
    I was turned on to this series by the name of the fourth book. I love historical fiction, and this series just… sings to me. But I haven’t even picked it up yet.
  • Shift by Hugh Howey
  • The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
    This was recommended to me many times by a friend of mine who I don’t talk to anymore. She probably thinks I was ignoring her, but I truly never did get around to it and I do want to read it. But really. I HAVE A TBR PILE THAT IS 2300 BOOKS LONG. Things are bound to get shuffled. We ended our friendship on bad terms, but I still want to read this book, especially for her.


  • Between Two Thorns by Emma Newman
    I came across this book one afternoon when I was at the bookstore with Mr. Blue. I was drawn to the cover, and then to the blurb. This is the only book I have bought on my tablet at full price, because it seemed worth it. Yet, I haven’t read it yet.
  • Palimpsest by Catherynne M. Valente
    I loved The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland, and have thus decided I need to read everything else ever written by Valente. Palimpsest seems like a good place to start!
  • A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson
    This is the final book in the Wheel of Time series. This series was one of my favorites in high school, and truth be told I haven’t read any of the books since Robert Jordan passed away. I go long stretches without reading and then I have to re-read, so I am currently starting over, again.
  • The Night Watch by Sergei Lukyanenko
    I have heard from many different people that this is a book worth reading. I found it at the book sale a few years back, and I still haven’t read it. Silly me.
  • The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
    I have always been very interested in all things Holocaust. I want to read all the books and see all the movies and just immerse myself in as much knowledge as I can about everything surrounding the Holocaust. And yet, I haven’t read this quintessential book.

So, lovely bookworms! Have you read any of my 10? Any suggestions for where to start? What do your ten look like? Comment here with the list, or link me to your Top Ten Tuesday post.

Stay bookish ♥

Talk bookish to me!

  1. Weird! You and I have the same experience with the Three Musketeers. I’ve also been meaning to read it, and a friend with whom I ended on bad terms recommended it to me repeatedly.

    Also I love this idea! It’s always nice to know you’re not the only one with an endless TBR list.

    In the Night Garden. Catherynne M. Valente. Please love yourself and read this book. After Palimpsest, of course.
