Top Ten Tuesday: Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread

Ha! Oh, these lists are making me hang my head in SHAME. lol For this particular list, I wanted to give you books I HAD to buy, because I LOVED the covers, and I’ve yet to read! How many of us do this, buy books because of the pretty covers? Well, here’s TEN pretties! ALL bought on impulse and STILL unread!

    Ooooh, Unearthly! I recommend you read it soon. It’s so much more than just a pretty cover. I’ve also read Matched which is pretty awesome for a romance but not much good at anything else…
    Happy reading!

    Oooh I want to read Luxe!

    As for some of the others *cough* Unearthly— such a fun series. You better fall for Christian. Tucker is a rodeo hot dog. Matched— i rarely say i HATED a series, but i truly hated that series. Matched was decent– great idea and kept me interested, but Crossed & Reached were horrible– so much stuffing you could fit it all in a brief novella. Excited to see what you think of it!!

    You have good and varied taste in covers! :-) IMPOSSIBLE has almost nabbed me 5 times based on cover alone! In fact, I might’ve bought it for my daughter…And LUXE. *sigh* Haven’t read it, but the cover… *sigh* Read MATCHED and UNEARTHLY too. Happy reading!

    Oh my gosh, yes. Such pretty covers- I LOVE the Slice of Cherry one! I picked up Matched a couple months ago and haven’t touched it yet.

    Why did I think you had read Unearthly?! and I also have that Elkeles bind-up, but haven’t read it yet. Oops.

    Loved the Luxe series! Would definitely recommend (though it’s been a while so I don’t quite remember what happened during it… Huh).
    And I love the cover for The Replacement. I remember seeing it before but forgot about it. Might need to add that to my TBR list.

    Unearthly was one that stayed unread on my shelf for quite a while after I bought it! I eventually did read it and it wasn’t bad! Not my favourite book in the world, but not horrible! I read Impossible a long time ago from the library and adored it! I found it at a second hand book store a few months back and was so excited! It’s a really amazing book! I hope you get to some of these soon! It looks like you’ve got some great books on your list! Happy reading!

    The cover for Mad Love is really quite pretty! I can’t wait to check that one out.

    Also, Unearthly is good. It’s a quick read, and the story is very well told. Plus, cowboy love interest… and he’s 1 of 2!

    I have Unearthly in e-book and really need to read it! I’ve been wanting to start that series for some time.

    How is it that you haven’t read Firelight and Unearthly yet??!! They’re such great series!!! You must read them soon! I haven’t read the third book in both but I’m going to, soon. =P

    Unearthly is AMAZING! This is the best angel YA series out there and I’m not easily impressed by angel YA (seriously, they can easily turn REALLY preachy).
    Firelight and Matched are also staring me down from my shelves…

    I also have Firelight and The Replacement and still haven’t read them. Unearthly and The Luxe definitely have gorgeous dresses. Great list :) Hope you can get to these soon!

    Ooh, The Iron Duke was pretty much awesome, and I really enjoyed Unearthly (though I haven’t gotten to the other books in the series).

    I love the Perfect Chemistry series, though, but have yet to try anything else by Simone Elkeles, though I do have Leaving Paradise…but haven’t read it. Guess that can go on my list, too!

    LOL! Firelight, Matched, and Unearthly are all still sitting on my shelf as well! :) You MUST read Impossible – I loved it! Oh, and Ruined – I thought those books were really fun! You’ll like those too. (I, think ;)

    I need to read Unearthly soon as well! Yay for angel books! I just think the typography on the covers are so gorgeous. Definitely pick up The Replacement. I’ve seen it on a couple other TTTs this week. I read it a couple years ago and it’s a really well-written and phenomenal book all around.

    I am still in love with that cover for The Replacement. I haven’t purchased it, but I talked my sister into buying it! It just looks so good!!
