Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This is one meme I can get on board with - I LOVE lists! I'll show you mine if you show me yours!
Top Ten Books I'm Not Sure I Want To Read
1. An Echo In The Bone by Diana Gabaldon - It seems blasphemous to put this book on this list. I LOVE this series. HARD. But, books 5 and 6 just didn't hold the same magic for me. And there was so much time between the release of book 6 and the release of An Echo In The Bone. I'm just not sure if I really need to continue the story.
2. Any of the "classics" - I'd like to read one. Really. I'm just afraid it won't be any fun for me. I'm afraid I won't be able to get past the old world language to really get what's going on. And, that would be the final nail in the classics coffin for me.
3. Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead - I'm a huge Vampire Academy and Bloodlines fangirl. I think Gameboard of the Gods sounds interesting, but I've heard conflicting things about it, and I think I'd rather not pull Ms. Mead down off her pedestal just yet.
4. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor - I read the first book, and it just wasn't my cup of tea. I've heard wonderful things about this whole series, so I've contemplated continuing with the series anyway. I'm just not sure it wouldn't be a waste of my time.
5. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo - This is another series I've heard fantastic things about. I even own it in hardback - asked for it for my birthday. A year ago. I wasn't sure why I had put it off, but now the final book has come out, and I've heard some things that make me not want to start it in the first place now.
6. Eve by Anna Carey - I was on a dystopian kick for awhile when I bought Eve. I fully intended to read it, but ended up loaning it to a good friend first. She is also a big dystopian fan. And, she didn't care for it at all. For some reason that kinda killed my desire to read it.
7. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - Holy cow - I've been back and forth so many times on whether I should read this book. I've held it in my hand in several formats from the library only to return it unread. I love werewolf books. And, everyone I talk to seems to either love or hate this one. I'm just not sure on which side of the fence I would land.
8. The 100 by Kass Morgan - I was so excited to read this book. I didn't get around to buying it right away, and now I've got the benefit of reviews on Goodreads to help me out. And they are not good. I do follow Goodreads reviews, so I'm thinking this one may be off my list now.
9. City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare - I've read the other 5 in the series. Loved the first three. And, I do really, REALLY want to see Clary and Jace get their HEA. I just... I don't know. It's a huge book and the last two haven't been my favorite. I've been tempted to just walk into a book store, plunk down on a chair and read the last chapter.
10. Torn From You by Nashoda Rose - I've heard great things about this book. I've also heard it's dark and twisted and I'm just not sure if maybe it's not TOO dark for me.
