Top Ten Tuesday: Books Everyone Has Read But Me

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week’s top ten list is a rewind – we have a choice of selecting from a top ten list.  For my first Top Ten Tuesday I will list books I feel everyone has read but me.

  1. Secret Daughter – definitely on my “to-read” list…I hope to read it by the end of the year.
  2. The Time Traveler’s Wife – the trailer for the movie totally turned me off
  3. The Night Circus – I will read this book.  It sounds incredible…maybe I should have put it on my summer reading list…I’ll read it if I finish the others with time to spare…
  4. The Secret Life of Bees – really wanted to, but then I didn’t and now it feels like it’s too late…the ship has sailed
  5. Any of the Shopaholic books – just can’t bring myself to open one
  6. 1Q84 – admittedly I find the whole thing rather intimidating and will put it at the bottom of my list just so I can say it’s on my list
  7. Anything by Philippa Gregory – my only venture into historical fiction was The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane and I rather enjoyed that.  Since then I have put Gregory on my list, I’m having trouble choosing which novel. Again, maybe once I’m done my summer reading, I’ll jump into a Gregory work.
  8. The Game of Thrones Series – can’t say that my friends are big fans of fantasy novels, but my students most definitely love the adventures and conniving in a different world.  I have started watching the series, and if it resembles the books in any way, I am beginning to see why adolescent boys would love these books so much.
  9. Anything by Nikki Gemmell – the past few days I’ve been having that “where have I been?” feeling because I keep coming across reviews and articles about Nikki Gemmell’s writing and books.  I am intrigued and will hopefully become part of the Gemmell reader club soon.
  10. 5o Shades of Grey – I haven’t read it yet.  It is on my summer reading list, and the more I talk to people that have read it, the more I regret slapping it on there.  Oh well…you’ll hear all about it this summer!

Is there a book you wanted to read along with everyone else and didn’t get the chance to?

  1. I’ve read a few of these on your list (#2, 3 & 8). But I also have a number of Phillippa Gregory’s books on my list. The Night Circus was my favorite book I read so far this year!


    1. We’re both in the minority…there are so many books to read that by the time I get around to them, they’re old news. Thanks for reading!


  2. Harry Potter. I am not a fan of the genre and was turned off by the fact it appealed so largely to a tween audience, but it seems like everyone who has read the series has loved it.

    BTW, the Time Traveler’s Wife is amazing. It was my favourite book for years and I reread it at least once a year. The movie does not do it jusitice (as is often the case).


    1. Yes, Harry Potter is a wonderful series…I am looking forward to reading it to my son when he’s older. Maybe I just have to get over the trailer for The Time Traveler’s Wife because a few people have written to me telling me how much they loved it.
