Top Ten Tuesday: Backlist Books I Want to Read

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl, is: Top Ten Backlist Books I Want to Read. I’m not sure how everyone else defines “backlist”, but I’m going to use it as any book currently published I haven’t read yet, even if they came out recently.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor. I bought this book from the bargain shelves a couple years ago and still haven’t started it yet.

6068551

The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater. I got Shiver as a free e-book a couple years ago and I started it once, but never finished it. I’d like to go back and give the series another try.

Speaking of Stiefvater, I haven’t read All the Crooked Saints yet, either.

I’ve only read the first two books in the Helen Grace series by M.J. Alridge. I did enjoy them, but somehow it just fell off my radar and I’d like to go back and pick up where I left off.

27190613

The Conqueror’s Saga by Kiersten White. I remember being really excited for this series (mostly due to the beautiful cover, if I’m honest), but I started it once and couldn’t get into it. I’ve read so many great reviews of this series, though, and I want to try it again.

My brother, who is not a big reader, is obsessed with the Mitch Rapp series and I’ve read the first couple books and enjoyed them, but need to get to the rest. One interesting thing about this series, it recently picked up with some new books written by a different author after the original author (Flynn) passed away.

29749085

Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo. This was one of my most anticipated books last year, but I have yet to read it. I did actually start it once, but didn’t get past the first chapter or two.

29638166

From Sand and Ash by Amy Harmon. I love Amy Harmon books and this is one of the very few I haven’t read yet.

23461020

All of the Rosato & Associates and Rosata & DiNunzio books by Lisa Scottoline. I’ve read the first book in each series (one is a spin-off of the other, but really I think is just a continuation?) and I need to get to the rest of them.

What backlist books do you want to read?

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want To Read

2824d-toptentuesday2

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish is: Top Ten Books I’m Not Sure I Want To Read (books you may have bought but aren’t sure if you are into it anymore, books you wanted to read but heard mixed things about, hyped books you aren’t sure about — basically any book that has you going, “TO READ OR NOT TO READ?”

Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #1)

1. Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor. I bought this for $5 a month or two ago, but I haven’t looked at it again since. It hasn’t even made it from the bag to the bookshelf yet. I’ve read such great reviews, but I once read a preview of it and didn’t get into it.

Big Little Lies

2. Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I’ve heard good things about it, but I never did make it through The Husband’s Secret.

This Shattered World (Starbound, #2)

3. This Shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner. I didn’t love These Broken Stars. Yeah. I said it. I’m not sure I care enough to read the rest of the series.

Deep Blue (Waterfire Saga, #1)

4. Deep Blue by Jennifer Donnelly. I was dying to read this for so long and then I started reading reviews and was not so interested any more.

The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)

5. The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon. I liked The Bone Season well enough at the time, but I’m not sure I care enough about the characters to continue the series.

Dorothy Must Die (Dorothy Must Die, #1)

6. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige. I think I’ve gotten this twice from the library and it expired before I even opened it. After reading the prequel book, I haven’t been as excited to read this as I once was.

Eh, that’s all I’ve got for now. At least I made it to 6 instead of the 5 I usually do.

What books are you not sure about?
