Top Ten Backlist Books I Want to Read
I really will only post ten, even though I could easily choose about a million (as the title to this post implies).
For this list, I’m only using books that are over two years old. Just because. And only books I own. The list could still be MUCH longer.
1.Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Susan Dennard’s writing resources are amazing, and I own her books. Why haven’t I read her yet? There is no logic that can explain it.
2. Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes
Another author I’ve inexplicably never read even though I’m pretty sure I’d love her books.
3. The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner
I might lose blogger friends if I don’t read this soon—specifically, Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight. I mean, she’s been patient with me, but there are limits.
4. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
My secret sister got me this book and I was SO excited to read it. Yet it’s been hanging out on my shelf for three years.
5. The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
I own the whole original trilogy. My daughter read it and really enjoyed it, but I still haven’t picked it up.
6. Confess by Colleen Hoover
Somewhere along the line, I started getting scared that I don’t love Hoover’s books anymore. I don’t even know that the feeling is based on anything real—I think there were two books that disappointed me a little (but so many more that I LOVED). I need to get over it and keep reading.
7. Alienated by Melissa Landers
I think I might have put this on a list or two in the past. For some reason, the idea of this book fascinates me, but I still haven’t read it.
8. Legend by Marie Lu
Now that I’ve finally read a Marie Lu series (Warcross), I need to pick up her older books, which are ALL calling to me from my shelves.
9. Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck
Once again, I own the whole series. Haven’t read any of them, though. Makes sense, right?
10. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Everyone and their uncle loves this book. I’m guessing I will too when I get around to reading it.
What books have you been overlooking for far too long? Are there any of these that I absolutely MUST read? I want to know!
