Sitting There Collecting Dust

This weeks topic is:
Books That Have Been On My Shelf For The Longest But I've Never Read

  1. The Replacements by Brenna Yovanoff- This is one that I coveted for months on end before it came out and as soon as I got it I put it on my shelf. I just couldn't read it then and now it's still there, on the shelf. 
  2. Linger and Forever by Maggie Stiefvater- (oh-the-irony) I have abandonment issues with series. After this list you will see what I mean. I LOVED Shiver, like with all my heart, so why can't I finish this series? Maybe because I know what Maggie is capable of her writing is both heart-breaking and beautiful. 
  3. Delirium by Lauren Oliver- I tried to read it but if I don't read books when I am in the mood for them sometimes it makes me hate the book so I put it down and just haven't picked it back up yet.
  4. The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa- Again abandonment issues. The only thing that will get me into these books is the world. I hate the whinny which-guy-am-going-to-choose-syndrome.
  5. Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines by John Green- I have tried several times to get into either of these but there is like this wall that I keep hitting with both of them. 
  6. Matched by Ally Condie- Same case as The Replacement, wanted it something fierce before it came out, saved money to get it , and then I didn't read it. 
  7. City of Ashes, Glass, and Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare- I warned you.... The first one didn't sit well with me and I don't know if I can go back into that world.
  8. Gone by Lisa McMann- I'm getting redundant now. I read Wake my Sophomore year proclaiming it better than Twilight, because it was. Then my series abandonment kicked it and only just recently read Fade.
  9. The Lost Hero, The Red Pyramid, and The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan- Technically this isn't abandonment because they are new series from him, right? I LOVED the Percy Jackson series so I don't know why it's so hard for me to pick these up.
  10. Eon by Alison Goodman- It's about a ninja so why haven't I read it? *shrugs* Maybe because of it's size...

just sayin,

  1. The City of Bones actually makes the list of books that I least enjoyed.. because of that ending. But everyone tells me to give the series a second chance. Haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Also, I hope you give John Green's books another chance. I vowed to read all of his books after I LOVED Will Grayson.


Let me know what you think was an epic win or an epic fail, or if you feel like it make robot sound like beep beep boo bop. Really I could careless just keep it clean.
