Top Ten Tuesday-- Books I WILL read in 2011

TTT is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This weeks top ten is top ten books I resolve to read in 2011

I have lots and lots of books sitting on my shelves that I keep meaning to read and never seem to do. I always go for the newer, shinier books.

1. I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore:
I've had this book on my TBR shelve for months now and I am determined to read it before the movie comes out. I don't like seeing movies based on books before reading the book and I WILL see this movie cause it's Alex Pettyfer, and let's face it, Alex is gorgeous. I just keep passing over this book though cause it's aliens, which I normally hate.

2. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles:
Everyone talks about how absolutely amazing this book is and I keep looking at it and passing over it. This needs to be read.

3. Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink:
I started this book last year and it didn't grab me. Now I want to read it just so I have more space on my shelf. I refuse to give up so fast.

4. Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater:
This is one I can't believe I haven't read yet. I read Lament back in 09 and yet I still haven't read this one??? I don't know why I haven't.

5. Eternal Kiss of Darkness by Jeaniene Frost:
I have a feeling that stuff that happens in this book will show up in the next Cat and Bones book. Means I need this one read before February.

6. Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard:
I loved loved loved You Wish by M.H. and I ran out and got P.P. the next day. Have I read P.P. yet? Noooooooo. Why? I don't know why.

7. We Hear the Dead by Dianne Salerni:
I just want to read this one cause I need a book in my "w" section. You Wish is getting lonely in the review page all by itself at the bottom. haha.

8. Halo by Alexandra Adornetto:
I started reading this book when it first came out and didn't get very far. It wasn't grabbing my attention at the time cause I wasn't in the mood for it. Now I need to go back and finish it.

9. Magic in the Shadows by Devon Monk:
I've read the first two and really liked them. I've gone out and bought all the rest of the books the day they come out. Plus my sister has read all the books multiple times and keeps nagging at me to read them so that we can talk about them. I will get the next three of these books read soon, so stop nagging Arwen! (lol sorry, just had to add that in cause I know she reads this blog ;)

10. My Soul to Keep by Rachel Vincent:
This is a series I can't decide if I'm going to keep going with or not. This book has been sitting in a pile for a long time now and I think I'm just going to stick with the series till the end. Why not? I am curious about a few things, even if it's just not high on my favorite books list.


  1. I haven't heard of any of these authors or book titles before. Here's wishing you all the very best in sticking to your resolve.:)


  2. I read I Am Number Four last year, and while it was a pretty good book (the love story is sweet, the plot interesting, but it had too many holes in its logic to be fully entertaining for me), my opinion of it is now somewhat poorly coloured by knowing more about how and why it was written. Shame, really.

  3. Great lists. best bof luck and happy, happy reading.

  4. Prophecy of the Sisters was a favourite of 2010 for me, please try again :-)

    I want to try the Soul series.

  5. I think my favorite one on your list is Perfect Chemistry. Good luck on your reading goals!

  6. here's mine

  7. Hmm, I have not read one positive review for Halo. Everyone seems to dislike it. Well, I'm still looking forward to what you thought of it in your review!

  8. I hardcore heart My Soul to Take. I really hope you get a chance to read the whole series.

    P.S. Prophecy of the Sisters is really good as well. :)

  9. Yeah! Perfect Chemistry is on your list. This is such a good book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    Here is my list in case you are interested:

  10. I've been meaning to read My Soul to Keep - looks like a good one. I really like this list - thanks for sharing :}. Another good read you might enjoy that I just finished is called, Pink Noise: A Posthuman Tale by Leonid Korogodski. The action scenes are superb and the story’s second half unfolds so fast that it’s impossible to stop reading.

  11. Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink is on my list, too. Sad, to hear it didn't grab you. :"(

  12. We Hear The Dead and Perfect Chemistry are excellent.

    Good for you on giving Halo another try. I wasn't a fan, but who knows, maybe you'll really like it!

  13. Perfect Chemistry almost made my list, too - I got both of them last year but still haven't read them... sigh!


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
