Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Wanted to Read but are Still on my Bookshelf


A Top Ten Tuesday Rewind! So many choices. After viewing the spreadsheet provided by The Broke and the Bookish blog, I noticed that the weekly bookish meme, Top Ten Tuesday started in July in 2010. It really has gone a long way. Six years later, there are hundreds of TTT topics already explored and I’m so happy to be able to revisit the previous topics that I didn’t have the chance to do!

1. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman


I really wanted to get this book and as soon I saw the lovely cover of Seraphina in my local bookstore, I immediately got it. However, months later, it’s on my shelf and I still haven’t got around to reading it.

2. Trigger Warning by Nail Gaiman


Being a huge fan of Neil Gaiman, I knew I just had to get this book the moment I saw it and till today, I’m still admiring the cover of the book without actually reading it.

3. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden


Memoirs of a Geisha was really well known and I was really interested in reading it.

4. Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel


I came to know of the book after reading an article about it in the newspaper so naturally, when I saw it in a book sale, I bought it.

5. The Luminaries by Eleanor Carton


I have a thing with getting prize winning books and this one is no different. The Luminaries was actually the winner of the Man-Booker Prize in 2013.

6. Revelation by C.J. Sansom


I bought Revelation because the synopsis was really interesting and it was a historical fiction too so I knew I had to get it.

7. The Maze Runner by James Dashner


It was sold in a box set at an extremely affordable price and the movie was just released so I went ahead and bought The Maze Runner series.

8. Prince of Stories: The Many Worlds of Neil Gaiman by Hank Wagner, Christopher Golden and Stephen R. Bissette


As a fan of Neil Gaiman, I convinced myself that I needed to get this book because it chronicles his history and all of his previous works. I’ll get around to reading it, just as soon as I finish a couple (read: stack) of books.

9. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson


I bought it because the entire trilogy was available and that’s the way I like my series: completed unlike a few of the other series I’ve bought and failed to complete.

10. Murder for Christmas 


Oh, I’ll be sure to complete this collection of mystery short stories with a Christmas theme before Christmas comes.

    Glad to see we ended up picking the same topic for today’s TTT. You should read Memoirs of a Geisha and then watch the movie too. Its one of my favorite books for all-time. Great post!

    Great topic choice. Seraphina is still on my bookself too. It’s a beautiful cover and sounds wonderful, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

    Ah!! I still haven’t bought my copy of Seraphina. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
    I think I have the same box set of the Maze Runner. Well, technically my friend has it, we just shared our BB1M vouchers and bought a whole bunch of books at two different stores. Both of us have yet to touch it. Haha.

    Quite a few on here that I also need to read (and really want to get to but just haven’t found the time) – Seraphina being one. I heartily recommend the Geisha book.

    Trigger Warnings is incredible but I recommend you listen to the audiobook actually.Neil reads it himself and I’m sure you know how cool that is. Happy reading!
