1. Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas
I’ve heard phenomenal things and I genuinely think I will like it. I love the look of the covers and from what I’ve heard, it will rip my heart out and stomp on it. Awesome. I like books that do that. Then I can join in on all the fangirl-y pain that people have felt.
2. The Darkest Minds – Alexandra Bracken
Well I’m pretty sure the entire series has been finished at this point. Plus it’s been relatively popular in the blogosphere and I need more action-y books.
3. The Selection – Kiera Cass
Besides the fact that even people at my school have heard of and read this book, apparently the boys in this book are very attractive. Now I question the validity of that statement but it’s another YA dystopian staple that almost everybody has read.
4. The Raven Boys – Maggie Stiefvater
I hated Shiver so I’m extremely skeptical of this one. Multiple fans, non Stiefvater fans and fans alike seem to have enjoyed this one. Plus it sounds like it will have more action than Shiver did. I also feel as if I should give Stiefvater another chance because I didn’t like her other book that much.
5. Heist Society – Ally Carter
Besides the fact that this author seems to be a YA favorite, Heist Society is one of those novels that I’m guilty of avoiding due to the cover. Books with faces don’t really catch my attention. But I’ve heard about spies and so maybe I’ll finally get around to it.
6. White Cat – Holly Black
I’ve tried on two different occasions to read this book but it was always at the bottom of my pile of library books. I have yet to read it OR any Holly Black novel. I should probably fix that.
7. Open Road Summer – Emery Lord
I’ve heard exceptional things about Emery Lord and I know that she is said to be an amazing contemporary author. Many people love her writing and I still haven’t read it.
8. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer – Michelle Hodkin
This novel is so popular all over booktube but I’m still a little skeptical. The book gives me this distinct vibe that it’s writing might strike me as being very empty and I feel a slight aversion to the novel. But I still do want to see what the hype is about.
9. The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
*Coughs* Um I’ve had this book on my shelf for forever and I still haven’t read it….. Maybe I’ll get around to it.
10. Dangerous Girls – Abigail Haas
I’m in desperate need of more thrillers and books that twist my mind. I’ve heard that this book does exactly that but I still haven’t borrowed it or even tried to find it at the library.
Obviously this list was just full of popular books with hype.
But what books have you still not read?
