10 books i can’t believe i've never read || a guest post by amber

08 February 2014

today i have my awesome bloggy buddy amber from the mile long bookshelf here to do a top ten on books she can't believe she's never read. so, without further ado:
Literally everyone I know who has read The Book Thief has enjoyed it.  It seems quite daunting but it’s meant to be a stunning book so why on earth haven’t I read it yet?!
(o.o << that's all i have to say.)
Again, everyone I know who has read this has loved it. Who is Will? Who is Tessa? I need to know! Cassandra Clare is one of my favourite authors and I made it my New Year’s Resolution to read the series in 2014!
(ASDFGHJKL get your money out and speeennndd)
…although I may have read this by the time this post is published, as I’m expecting the book for review from Macmillan. Anyone who follows me on Twitter will know that I am a total fangirl, so why wouldn’t I want to read a book practically named after me? *fangirls*
(*fangirls*)
*raises hand shamefully* I have only ever read half a book by Patrick Ness. Half. I know; I’m terrible! Patrick Ness is meant to be an incredible writer and I must say, More Than This looks so good. What a cool cover, too!
I read Pivot Point last year and it was amazing! Split Second is the sequel and it’s been on my wish list for a really long time. I miss the characters so much as Pivot Point was truly captivating and I think this book will be, too.
After reading the first book Time Between Us a few months ago, I spoke to the author a couple of times too and she’s lovely. I doubt Time After Time will be any different! I just know I’ll love it.
Ever since this book was published I have been desperate to read it. It seems like all book bloggers have read it…except me. The cover is gorgeous and it sounds exactly like the kind of book I would enjoy! Writing this post is making me realise I may have to go on a book shopping spree soon…
I have only ever read three books by John Green – The Fault in Our Stars, Paper Towns and Will Grayson, Will Grayson. He is the King of Books and I’ve heard great things about Looking for Alaska!
(this is the only one i've not read of his yet!)
How awesome does this sound?! I’m a blogger. I’m a girl. IT’S MEANT TO BE. *grabby hands* Seriously though, I need this in my life. It’s chick-lit which I’m not usually a fan of, but it’s about a woman called Kim who has a book blog, and suddenly her arch nemesis from high school becomes a bestselling chick-lit author. And the book pops into Kim’s inbox for review. OOOOOOH. I can imagine this happening to me one day… (the ‘blogger reviewing an enemy’s book’ part, not the ‘bestselling author’ part…)
(I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THIS UNTIL NOW. *adds to infinite tbr*)
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins was my favourite book that I read in 2013, so I really need to get my hands on a copy of the sequel, Lola and the Boy Next Door! Unfortunately it’s not from Anna’s point of view this time, but apparently she appears once or twice!
(i am so jealous that you got anna and the french kiss! I WANT TO READ IT!)

  2. Haven't read Infernal Devices, Fangirl and Lola either. Lola is at least sitting on my shelf already. I will probably read that one when everyone reads Isla this year so that I don't feel left out XD

  5. Ok you have to get reading girl! The Book Thief and Looking for Alaska are the two that I have loved the most out of the ones on that list that I have read.
    The one book that I really need to read is Fangirl... every time I get on Twitter that is literally all I see and I'm ashamed to say that I have absolutely no idea what it's even about.

    Too much awesomeness, guys. I can't take it.

    Ahem. I AM BACK.

    Anyway... AMBER YOU NEED TO READ THE BOOK THIEF ASAP! It is so heart-breaking and beautiful and flawless. And the movie is coming out soon so all the more reason to read it soon, mehehe. And you need to read Looking For Alaska, obvs. Since you've read Fangirl, I won't bark at you for that ;) . I also need to read More Than This and Lola and the Boy Next Door so we can be guilty together. And you will L-O-V-E The Infernal Devices, they're even better than TMI (yes, it's possible) William Herondale.. *sigh* he's perfect.

    GREAT POST, UNICORNS.
