Books I haven't Read Yet....But I Own Them


I saw this post over at Rissi's blog and realized that I could do a post like that very easily! I have loads of books that are sitting on my shelf (or my kindle).....unread. So! I thought I'd share a few of them and see if anyone inspires me to pick them up soon. ;)

1 - Graceling by Kristin Cashore - I've had this forever! So why haven't I read it?

2 - No Safe Haven by Kimberly and Kayla Woodhouse - It's the same for this one.

3 - The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater - Fierce waterhorses? Check. Great reviews? Check. Kara reading it? Um.....

4 - Wildflowers From Winter by Katie Ganshert - Other bloggers have nothing but good things to say about her stories and I have yet to read a single one? I agree. This makes no sense at all.

5 - Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling - I've heard great things about this one and others who didn't like it, so I'm terribly curious what I'm going to think.

6 - The Remedy by Serena Chase - NO excuse for this one! I absolutely loved The Ryn and I'm so excited for The Seahorse Legacy (thanks to Amber) so you'd think I'd be rushing to read this one.

7 - This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith - Amber also reminded me (via twitter the other day) that I hadn't read this one yet.

8 - Trinity: Military War Dog by Ronie Kendig - Fellow readers have raved over Ms. Kendig's books. Raved I tell you! So I picked this one up and promptly never read it. Crazy huh?

9 - The Iron King by Julie Kagawa - I actually have all four books (maybe there's more? I haven't really figured out whether the others are continuing this series or a new series of their own) and have read bits and pieces of them, but not enough to count as reading them fully.

10 - Silenced by Dani Pettrey - I know! Believe me, I know exactly what you're thinking. And I'm determined to get to this one soon. Really! I mean it!

11 - Anomaly by Krista Mcgee - I was really excited for this one before it was published and when I saw it, I bought it immediately. Somehow I haven't ever picked it up though. Go figure.

12 - Kisses From Katie by Katie Davis - Her story looks so fascinating. And adventurous!


Well. There you have it. I have no idea why I haven't read any of these yet. They all look so fun and I know I'll enjoy reading them. Maybe I'm enjoying the anticipation of reading them? Who knows. *shrugs* I can say that they all look so pretty on my shelves though! :D

  1. Ooh, you definitely need to read Graceling!! Once you do you'll REALLY wonder why you didn't get to it sooner! :D I just loved it ... can you tell?! Haha.

  2. Katie is awesome (her newest book is gorgeous) and of course, I'm looking forward to reading MORE of Ronie's. My mother has read all of hers over the years, the gang at RelReviewz has insisted I read them, and I just never made time to read them (despite all the raving) until Inspy's. Just try and pull me away now. ;)

    Curious about Jennifer's and I've seen Julie's around here and there. They look interesting and many bloggers gush over them, so I'll have to look into those too!

    Thanks for putting together this fun post, Kara! LOVED it. :)

    1. Thanks, Rissi! It was fun (and slightly embarrassing) figuring out exactly how many books I own that I haven't read. The list is much longer than 12 I can assure you! ;)

      I really do want to try Ronie's. Rel is the biggest instigator for getting me excited to read hers! I always hear nothing but gushing. :D

      I definitely recommend Jennifer's The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (haven't we had this convo before...? ;).

  3. I've never read any of these books either, but I have heard of some. The Scorpio Races, I've always wanted to read those. Wildflowers from Winter sounds really interesting.

  4. Ooh, Graceling is definitely one you should pick up soon if you're in the mood! It's amazing, and you'll be glad for getting to know Katsa and Po. ;) Also, Maggie Stiefvater is incredible, and The Scorpio Races is no exception.

    Lovely post, Kara, thanks for sharing! :)

    1. I keeping such awesome things about Graceling, Aa'Ishah. As well as Maggie Stiefvater. Thanks for the encouragement! Sometimes we just need a little push to get us going. Or at least I do! ;)

  5. I haven't read any of these yet, either!

    Anomaly and Silenced are on my own TBR shelf. It's just a matter of time, I keep telling myself.... :)
    Happy Reading!

    1. Yep, exactly the same thing I tell myself all the time, Courtney! Hopefully sooner rather than later, right? :D Thanks for stopping over.

  6. You MUST read Anomaly!!! The Anomaly Trilogy has become some my absolute favorites! Jennifer's novel is on my TBR pile and I keep hearing amazing things about Graceling, so I'll have to pick that one up.

    1. I keep hearing amazing things about Graceling as well! I must get to that one soon. *nods head* And now I have to move Anomaly to the top of my list! I'm happy to know it's as wonderful as it sounds.

      Thanks, Alyssa! :)
