This week’s theme is my top ten books that I am desperate to read, but for whatever reason I do not own (yet)
1. Belzhar – Meg Wolitzer
One thing that makes me desperately want to read this book is the cover: Joy Division and The Bell Jar? I was also lucky enough to read an extract in Buzz Books 2014 Young Adult selection and loved it!
2. Vivian Versus America – Katie Coyle
Vivan Apple vs The World is undoubtedly one of the best books I have read all year (you can see my review here) and I am so, so excited for the sequel.
3. Zac and Mia – A.J. Betts
Ok, ok, so I really want to read this book after (in a similar way to Belzhar) I read an extract from it which sounded great. It’s got really mixed reviews but I guess I’ll have to try it out for myself!
4. It’s Kind Of A Funny Story – Ned Vizzini
I’ve seen this book on display in book stores for years and I’ve always picked it up and contemplated buying it but then ended up buying something else.
5. My True Love Gave To Me: Twelve Holiday Stories – Various Authors
One thing’s for sure, I love reading Christmas themed books during Christmas, so My True Love Gave To Me looks like an awesome read for over the festive season this year, especially as it contains short stories from some fabulous authors I.e. David Levithan and Rainbow Rowell!
6. Dangerous Girls – Abigail Haas
I’ve seen so many awesome reviews of this book recently. I also love a good mystery and so I can’t wait to get my hands on this!
7. Anna And The French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
I’ve not seen a bad word recently about this series. It’s definitely something I feel like I’m missing out on!
8. Frankenstein – Mary Shelley
Whilst this is a blog dedicated to YA and NA that’s not all I read. I’m a huge fan of classics and Frankenstein is one of those books that I have always wanted to read but I’ve never actually got around to.
9. Annie On My My Mind – Nancy Garden
As soon as I heard about this book I have wanted to read it. I knew it would be a change from all the modern YA books that I’ve read recently with LGBT themes as it was published in 1982, so I know it will be interested to read about the same issues people still go through today but in a different context.
10. The Casual Vacancy – J.K. Rowling
I love J.K. Rowling, I could talk about Harry Potter all day, but I’ve never actually got around to reading The Casual Vacancy. Quite frankly, I feel rather guilty.
