Top Ten Books I Really Want to Read but Don’t Own Yet


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers there at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join!

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday post asked us to list the Ten Books We Want to Read but Don’t Own Yet. I actually had some trouble with this – while there are obviously books out there I’d like to read, I am not actually slow to purchase and/or borrow titles upon their release if I am really interested in them. So I broke this down a bit, into five books I’d like to read that are already released, and five books I want to read that aren’t released yet. Hopefully that wasn’t cheating! I just really couldn’t come up with ten books that were already available that I don’t yet own and/or am not able to borrow from the library.

Here we go!



These come highly recommended, and are high up on my to-read list. I just haven’t found the time to actually get them read yet!


1) Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken


2) Eon by Alison Goodman


3) The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey


4) The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Frances Long


5) Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier


These are the upcoming releases that have me most excited!


6) This Shattered World (Starbound #2) by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner


7) Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin #3) by Robin LaFevers

9) The Wondrous and the Wicked (The Dispossessed #3) by Page Morgan

    I love The Treachery of Beautiful Things. It was a book I hadn’t heard much at all about, but I took a chance, and it was great. I hope you like it!

  2. Oh, I really enjoyed BRIGHTLY WOVEN and EON! THE SNOW CHILD is on my list today, too!! Juliet Marillier! *lovelovelove* Eek, and Robin Lafevers! LOVE. I am SO EXCITED for BLOOD OF OLYMPUS!! Good taste :)

    This Shattered World and Blood of Olympus are the only two I’ve heard of! I’m surprised how many new and different titles are appearing today. Good for diversity, bad for my TBR! Lol

    My TTT:

  6. YES for The Blood of Olympus! I haven’t read The House of Olympus yet actually, but I want to marathon the series when the last book comes out. Hope you get all these soon! :D

    These are such beautiful books, Merin! I wouldn’t mind seeing them on my shelf either. The Snow Child and The Treachery are two on my radar. Hope you add these pretties to your library soon!

  10. I have brightly woven on my shelf, and I loved her the darkest minds books so I need to read her other one

  11. Cecelia says:

    I’ve seen THE SNOW CHILD on a couple of lists today, and I can’t wait to get that one myself! I own EON, but I still haven’t read it… eeek! And yes, totally agree with you on THIS SHATTERED WORLD. I can’t wait!

    Great list!

  12. I had trouble with this topic, too, so I actually changed it a bit. I like how you made it work for you. I am so excited for Blood of Olympus, too! Like, I will be reading it straight away. I’m excited for the next Spooner & Kaufman book, too.

  13. Alisa Selene says:

    I always think the cover of EON is gorgeous! :)
