10 Books I Want to Read But Don't Own

Oh my never ending "To Be Read" list. I feel like it never gets shorter. It's a good problem to have. However... it's hard when you don't actually have the books in your possession.

Here are ten book on my TBR list which I don't own:

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J Maas


I read the first book in this series, Throne of Glass, not long ago and I really want to read the next one! Someone please tell me it'll be out in paperback soon.

Pointe by Brandy Colbert


I don't know a whole lot about this one, but I've heard some people say it's one of their favorite books to come out this year. It's about ballet but it's also a thriller type of story I think.

Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour


Another one I don't know a whole lot about - but John Green recommended it and I trust his judgement.

A Million Suns by Beth Revis


I listened to the first book, Across the Universe, on audio earlier this year. It wasn't the greatest thing I've ever read, but it was interesting and I loved the author's take on leadership. I felt like it was a perspective we don't get to see very often. I'm very interested to see what happens next!

The Scorch Trials by James Dashner


And another sequel. But I just have to know what happens when The Maze Runner ends!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them & Quidditch Through the Ages by JK Rowling


I feel like such an awful Harry Potter fan - but I don't have these books. I need them. I need them right now.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman


I'm on a big Neil Gaiman kick right now and I want every single book he's written and this is his newest one.

Attack of the Theatre People by Marc Accito


Another sequel and this needs to be in my hands yesterday. If you've been reading my blog at all this year, you know I ADORED How I Paid for College and I was so excited to see there was a sequel because I need more of my Ferris Bueller and Rachel Berry love child.

Till We Have Faces by CS Lewis


My friend Sarah told me to read this book forever ago and I still haven't. But it's by CS Lewis who is amazing so I need to get on it.

To Be or Not to Be: A Choosable Path Adventure by Ryan North


Do you remember those pick your own adventure books when we were kids? Well - this is the same thing. Only for adults. And it's Hamlet. A friend of mine told me I should read this and really, do I need any other reasons?

What books have you been meaning to read but haven't been able to get a hold of yet?


  1. I haven't heard of any of these except the JK Rowling one. Thanks for the share!

  2. The Throne of Glass series is amazing. I read it as the Sarah was writing it, and had the opportunity to add input and stuff. It's a bit easier reading it in the books, as I don't have to wait anxiously for each chapter to come out! I've still only managed to pick up Throne of Glass since the series has been published, but I can't wait to pick up the rest.

    1. That's so cool! I'm totally jealous. And I want to get the next books right now!

  3. I haven't read any of these, but I REALLY want to get to The Maze Runner series at some point! I hope you get to read all of them soon!

    Here are my Top Ten!

    1. The Maze Runner is pretty good! Not the greatest thing ever, but I really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the movie!

  4. Man... I haven't heard of ANY of these books... I feel like such a slacker in the reading department lol I think I need to step up my reading game a bit instead of just reading all the free downloads I get from BookBub for my Kindle!

  5. I am reading Crown of Midnight right now and I am LOVING it! It is even better than the first and I am not even half way through!

  6. I think I even requested Everything Leads to You but didn't get it on Netgalley. As fas as The Ocean at the End of the Lane goes, it's a really good book, I read it recently. For me, it was the first Gaiman and the beginning had me sceptical but it was great.

  7. YESYESYES. You need to read Till We Have Faces! Seriously, you'll love it. I've said that a bunch before, but it's true.


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
