Top Ten Tuesday #3

You can find out all about Top Ten Tuesday at the Broke and Bookish Blog

Top Ten Books I HAD to Buy...But Are Still Sitting on My Shelf Un-read!

Haha! Be glad this is a list of 10 or you could be here aaaaaaaall day ;)

1. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

2. The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson - it seems like everyone has read this book!

3. Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon - I finished Outlander (or Cross Stitch) but then I left too long between finishing it and getting my hands on Dragonfly in Amber so I still have to read it. Maybe there is a re-read of Outlander in my near future?)

4. Seeing Redd (Book 2 - The Looking Glass Wars) by Frank Beddor - another case of reading book 1 and leaving too long to get hold of the 2nd. By the time I got it I had lost any sense of urgency I had to read it. 

5. Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson - It seemed like a good idea at the time... *whistles*

6. Phoenix Rising by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris

7. The Time Machine/The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells

8. I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett - I LOVED the first 3 books in the Tiffany Aching series, but there was too much of a gap between the 3rd and the 4th. I jumped to but it but I have been dragging me feet to read it ever since. 

9 & 10. Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay and Between the Lines by Jodi Piccoult and Samantha Van Leer
These are both books that I LOVED the idea off and just haven't got round to yet. *scuffs floor*
I haven't seen the Dexter TV series either so it is going to be a complete surprise when I get round to reading it! :)

Happy Tuesday y'all! Hope you have a good and safe week!

  1. (red faced) I have Girl Who Circumnavigated awaiting me, too. A lovely brand new copy. I just had to have it. And it is beautiful. And I loved the first few chapters.

    Why, then, is it sitting there, unread?

    Here's my Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread.

  2. Ooo these are new to me! I hope you get round to reading them soon.

    Here's my TTT post :)
