Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Else Has Read But Me

Hey y'all! For those of you wondering about the meme, this is a Tuesday meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Today's category is "Top Ten Books I Feel As Though Everyone Else Has Read But Me".  This isn't a meme that I regularly participate in, but I had the chance to this week because I'm sick and I can therefore work on stuff while I'm stuck on the couch feeling awful. Here goes:  1. Shade by Jeri Smith-ReadyI honestly don't know WHY I haven't read this one. I've been trying and trying to find a copy but my indie ran out and I want to stumble upon it. I am still #TeamKilt simply from reading arguments for him in YA Crush Tourney (I voted for him!) I really want this and Jeri Smith-Ready is one of the best people! I want to read this one.2. Perfect Chemistry by Simone ElkelesI've heard great things, but I still haven't had a chance to pick it up! I really really want to though. I've been looking for excellent contemporaries to listen to on audiobooks (I'm nervous about reading a paranormal romance or fantasy or action book on audiobook because I'm worried I may miss something) and I'm thinking about buying this one.3. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. PearsonI am awful for not having read this. I actually got a surprise ARC of The Fox Inheritance. I've heard wonderful things about this but I don't have a copy. I really want to though, and the cover is amazing. I actually haven't read any of Mary E. Pearson's books, unfortunately.4. Evernight by Claudia GrayI originally didn't read this one because it looked to me like reverse-Twilight to me. After reading the description in Borders a few years back, I decided to go with something else. Last year after picking up the Vampire Academy series, I realized that it could be a vampire paranormal romance and not a rip-off of Twilight or Vampire Diaries. So this is on my RAK and I'm really looking forward to seeing it somewhere that I can buy it (hopefully soon!)5. Poison Study by Maria V. SnyderSo many trusted bloggers out there have recommended this, insisting that I read it. Blogs that I regularly read gush about this, and yet I still haven't had the chance to read it. I didn't want to buy this online because there were so many new releases that I was clamoring for, so this is on the list of books that I will buy if I ever get the chance to, or if somebody finds on my R.A.K and decides to send it to me.6. Inside Out by Maria V. SnyderThis is one of those books that I serial-enter contests for. I want this book so badly but I haven't had the chance to find it yet. Um, I just realized that I've been repeating everything in almost every book and that's because they're all true!7. Bright Young Things by Anna GodbersonI actually just bought this one (it's free on Kindle right now so snap it up while you can!) and it's one that I've had my eye on for a while. My school is doing a production of Thoroughly Modern Millie and that takes place in the Roaring Twenties :) Flappers, moderns, actresses, oh my! Anyways, I'm planning on starting this whenever I have the chance.8. The Luxe by Anna GodbersonThis as well was a book that I've heard lots of buzz about but I didn't really want to buy it until it went to reduced price on the Kindle. I love the covers and I wish I could be those girls in the gowns (I know, wishful thinking) but I'm happy I did finally have the chance to pick this one up. Like Bright Young Things, I'm going to start this when I have the chance.9. Clarity by Kim HarringtonFirst of all, the cover is gorgeous. I've heard amazing things, but...reading the synopsis kind of turned me off. Couldn't they have worded it a bit better? There's nothing wrong with it but it didn't sound like it'd be a great book. I want this book so badly, but I have a lot of books that are ranked above this, you know? Anyways, if I get the chance to, I want to buy it, but this is one of those books that I don't want in e-book format but I kind of want in hardcover, although I want more books more than this.10.  The Replacement by Brenna YovanoffThe cover is just creepy and horrifying and this looks like the type of book that I'd love to read during the Halloween season. I've heard amazing things about this and it's on many "favorites" lists. This - like many of the books on this list - is one of those books that I'm going to eventually read but I'm going to wait until I'm not broke anymore (appropriate because this meme is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, haha.All of these books look absolutely amazing and I have heard wonderful things from everybody. It seems like everybody has read these books except for me and I can't wait until I can join them. Thank y'all for reading!Grace
