Top Ten Books That Remain On My Shelf (Unread) From Before I Began Blogging

Top Ten Tuesday is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I count down my top ten choices on a particular theme. This weekly event is hosted by Jamie at The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Top Ten Books That Remain On My Shelf (Unread) From Before I Began Blogging.

Much like the post on the Top Ten Series and/or Duologies I Started And Never Finished I shared a couple of weeks ago, I’m more than a little ashamed to reveal my answers to today’s Top Ten Tuesday prompt, the Top Ten Books That Remain On My Shelf (Unread) From Before I Began Blogging. The most embarrassing part? I have no adequate explanation as to why I purchased and then never read any of the books below. They’re all stories I’ve heard wonderful things about, have had recommended to me numerous times, and many are even written by authors whose work I’ve enjoyed before! The unfortunate truth is that since I began blogging and started regularly receiving books – both solicited and otherwise – in the mail for review, I’ve felt I’ve had less time to highlight older titles or books from my own personal collection. That said, I’ve been making a concerted effort to correct this in the last couple of weeks, and desperately want to make the time to read the ten books below very soon. Wish me luck!

As always, these choices are listed in no particular order.

1) Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

2) Just Listen by Sarah Dessen

3) Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

4) Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

5) The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

6) The Book Of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler

7) Perfect Escape by Jennifer Brown

8) The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding

9) The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

10) OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu

Now it’s YOUR turn! Have you read any of the books on today’s list? Which one is your favourite? What book should I read first? Let me know in the comments – I would love to hear from you!

    The sky is everywhere is an amazing book. I remember reading it before I had a blog. Love it so much. Anna and the french kiss, and Elenor & park is also favorite of mine. Love your design and the art work on your blog. Amazing 🙂

  15. Awa says:

    I haven’t read or heard of any of these! The broken heart sounds sad though – specially because I’ suffering from that right now myself. Let us know how you get on with them!

  16. Rachana says:

    I’ve only read 2 of the books on your list above (Anna and the French Kiss and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight). I really enjoyed both of them! It’s been awhile since they were published but you should definitely still keep them on your tbr and hopefully you’ll get around to reading them soon!

  17. The only one I’ve read from your list in The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and I really enjoyed that one. Most of Jennifer E. Smith books are good.
