Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don't Own Yet

This is another top ten Tuesday list from the Broke and the bookish. This week’s prompt is top ten books I really want to read, but don’t own yet. So if I suddenly had lots of extra money, or gift cards, and walked into a bookshop, these are the books I’d pick up.

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
When I first heard about this, I think in a Vlogbrothers video, and I thought it sounded really interesting. And then I started hearing about it in booktube, and I really wanted to read it. And for some reason I haven’t bought it yet. I don’t know why. I guess it’ll happen when it happens.

Shattered by Teri Terry
This is the last book in a trilogy where I’ve read the first two. It’s about a girl named Kyla, who was apparently a terrorist, and now she’s been slated, they’ve removed all her memories, and given a new life. It’s a really interesting series, so I have no idea why I haven’t bought it. I think moving from a place where I was surrounded by Waterstones and the American book center (Amsterdam) hasn’t helped with finding new releases. That’s a horrible sentence. But my local bookstores don’t always have the books I want, and then I have to order, and then there’s a hot mess (I buy them all).

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
I just want to read it, and I haven’t found it anywhere, and amazon is a scary place, so I just haven’t bought it. I really want to read it though. It just sounds really cool, and it looks a bit Russian and I find Russia really interesting for some reason. I want to find history books about Russia, about Anastasia, and Rasputin, but that’s another thing. I have odd interests.

Eternally Yours by Cate Tiernan
This is another third in a trilogy where I’ve read the first two, loved them, and just not finished the trilogy. It’s really cool, it’s about a girl named Nastasya who is an Immortal, and I thought it would be sort of lame and fun, but not like wow. It’s amazing. And I just haven’t gotten a hold of the last one yet.

Firebug by Lish McBride
I love Lish McBride. She’s amazing. She’s hilarious and she writes amazing books. She has written the Necromancer books, and this is set in the same Universe, but in a different city of the US, I think. It sounds really cool, and I want it so bad.

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie
This is not the book I decided on first, and then I bought that book, because I have no impulse control, so I added this instead. I have heard great things about it, and I want to read it. I can feel myself wanting to buy it right now, but I might need to force myself to not to.

How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran
I really like Caitlin Moran. I’ve read her other books, which are non-fiction, and this is a fiction YA book. And it sounds really interesting. It sounds like fun.

Is it Just me? by Miranda Hart
Miranda Hart is hilarious. I love her. I love her show. It’s sort of cringe-y, in a good way, but I love it. So this is a book about her, and her struggles with adulthood, which I feel like I struggle with too, I’m weird. It’s basically a manual for life, because Miranda Hart felt like she needed a manual, but there wasn’t one. So there.

We were Liars by E. Lockhart
I feel like everyone in the world of booktube have talked about it, and it sounds interesting, but I haven’t just gotten around to it. Yeah. I want it though.

Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke
Misty from the Bookrat gushes about this. It looks really cute, and it’s fun to read graphic novels. I’m excited for that. I just haven’t bought it yet. If I suddenly get lots of money, or gift cards (Christmas wish, I know it’s August, it’s fine) I will buy all the books.
