Welcome to my very first TOP TEN TUESDAY, hosted by Broke and Bookish! Today’s topic: My top ten YA fantasy/dystopian novels I can’t believe I haven’t read yet. So, here goes. Don’t laugh at me too much…
10. The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
Okay, this one I actually have an excuse for! I read the first twelve pages, and then got invited to an online book club and had to drop this series to read Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier. The next book in my reading line is the Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard because it’s an ARC coming to me in the next day or two that needs to be reviewed by the time it gets out! THEN I should be able to finish this series. =)
9. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
I honestly have no excuse for this one other than the fact that I’ve been in a reading slump before this year and never even heard of it until I got this job! I’m hoping to read this one soon!
8. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
I’ve heard SO MANY AMAZING reviews about this series and I’m so excited to read it… Eventually… when I get to it… hopefully sooner rather than later!
7. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Trust me, I know… I failed… I failed so badly! There’s just not enough hours in the day!!!!
6. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
It’s okay, I’m already hiding my face in shame…
5. These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
And now I’m crying in shame…
4. Legend by Marie Lu
I’m just going to die in shame…
3. Matched by Ally Condie
Really, I’m only a little behind…
2. Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Okay… WAY BEHIND!
1. Every single novel ever written by Rick Riordan
You can’t see it right now, but I’m hiding under my desk in shame. SHAME!!!!
So, what do all of you think? What should my first read be?… After I finish Daughter of the Forest, Red Queen, and The Darkest Minds of course! =) Any other opinions of novels that should be on this list, let me know and I’ll add it to my “to-read” list on goodreads as well, which you can find here! I’m happy to talk books and get other opinions! I LOVE finding new novels to gush about! OHHHH THE FEELS ❤
I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday! Remember, everyday is another chance to start new and to begin the rest of your life. Chin up, shoulders squared, believe in yourself. Your confidence will take you to where you need to be!
