Top Ten Tuesday (3)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there will be a new topic and a new list to make. Be sure to stop by the host blog to see all of the other blogs participating!

This week's topic:
Top Ten Books That Have Been on My Shelf for the Longest Time But I've Never Read

1. Lord of the Rings - I've read The Hobbit, but somehow I haven't managed to read these. Shame on me, I know!

2. To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis: A friend recommended this to me well over five years ago, and it's been on my shelf since then.

3. American Gods by Neil Gaiman: I've read other things by Neil Gaiman and love some of the quotes I've found from his books, but somehow I've never managed to read this one.

4. The Troy Game books by Sara Douglass: A friend recommended these, but I only have the first three, so I've never read them.

5. Atonement by Ian McEwan: I tried to start this book but just couldn't get into it. One day I'll pick it up again.

6. The Host by Stephenie Meyer: I'm a bad Twilight fan who hasn't read this book.

7. Maskerade by Terry Pratchett: I bought this because of the cover and its relationship to Phantom of the Opera, but I haven't found the time to pick it up.

8. Pride and Prejudice Spinoffs: I have at least six of these on my shelves that I haven't found the time to read.

9. Vienna Prelude by Bodie Thoene: I love the premise of this book - it's about a musician - but it's still stayed on my shelf.

10. Angels and Demons by Dan Brown: This is the one book I broke my rule for and saw the movie before reading the book. One day I will read it!

What made your Top Ten list? Please leave a comment or link to your blog!


  1. I loved The Host more than Twilight! You should definitely read it, especially since the movie is coming out someday... Haha. Great list!

    (Although today was my day to post the TTT at The Broke and the Bookish as well, so you may have already read my list!)

  2. We sure have a way of making ourselves feel guilty, don't we? I walked around the house as I was creating my list and realized that a lot of the books I have laying around the house aren't really on my list of books to read, they just are books. Get the difference?

  3. Dan Brown is always good for a fun weekend read.

  4. American Gods is pretty good, Maskerade is marvellous!
    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday post. :)

  5. I really loved The Troy Game, I hope you get to read them soon! I also have Atonement on my shelf.

  6. I loved VIENNA PRELUDE and the whole Zion Covenant series. Bodie Thoene did an awesome job of incorporating historical facts without bogging down the books. Definitely a must read! :)

  7. Spinoffs wouldn't jump to the top of my TBR pile, either. I've heard a lot about Host... haven't read it, either, tho.

  8. Read Angels & Demons. I think it is Breyer than his other 2. LORings. So want to read but the idea of starting it scares me. Massive.

  9. I loved The Host, probably more than I loved Twilight. I can't wait for Stephenie Meyer to release more in that series! I'm a huge Neil Gaiman fan, but there are still so many books of his that I haven't gotten around to reading. I have American Gods on audiobook, but it's just so long!

  10. LOTR is a tough series to get through! I loved it, don't get me wrong, but (for the first book at least) I fell asleep a lot while reading. It's really good though :)

  11. I wish the Host had never left my shelf! I didn't care for it.

  12. American Gods really blew my mind! I kind of pictures the MC as Vin Diesel :).. if that encourages you at all to read it.
