Top Ten Tuesday is brought to us by The Broke and the Bookish.
TOP TEN BOOKS I FEEL AS THOUGH EVERYONE HAS READ BUT ME
The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. The blurbs just haven't ever caught my interest, but I constantly see other bloggers swooning over some of the male characters. If they're that good, I feel like I should check 'em out. But then I see the summary again and turn away.
Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins. Seriously, people. This one isn't even out yet and I would need more than two hands to count the number of people I know that have already read this. Can I just say it's driving me CRAZY? I cannot express how much I'm anticipating this one. Really, I can't. MUST HAVE!
The Vampire Diaries series by L. J. Smith. I know absolutely nothing about these except, again, there are swoon-worthy male characters and everyone loves the TV show. Don't get me wrong - I love vampires. I guess I just never saw the appeal.
Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. Do I really need to explain this one? (Please don't advise me to try it; I couldn't get past the first thirty pages.)
Perfect Chemistry series by Simone Elkeles. West Side Story meets Romeo and Juliet? Eh..... As "hot" as they may be, they just sound rather cliche.
I Am Number Four series by Pittacus Lore. I started this but never had the desire to finish it.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I've heard it's incredible.
Crank series by Ellen Hopkins. I know, I know. They're practically staples in a YA library. And as much as I love verse novels, these never caught my interest.
Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. Might as well throw in Supernaturally, too.
The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien. Never could get into this.
