Top Ten Tuesday!

I feel like its been ages since I did my last Top Ten Tuesday! It is a weekly book meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this weeks top ten is the top ten debuts that you are most looking forward to in 2013! Now, I wish I could do the top ten debuts, but as I am currently a very broke university student with a very ill bank balance and have banned myself from buying any books for the foreseeable future, I’m going to do a little twist. So, drum roll please…..The Top Ten Books that I haven’t read that have been on my bookshelf for centuries!

  1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – Hopefully this won’t be unread for me for much longer as I am planning to read it next! Its a classic that I have wanted to read for ages and I really want to watch those cool looking YouTube videos about the book too! And the movie with Anne Hathaway! And the Colin Firth TV adaption.
  2. Double Cross by Malorie Blackman – I read and devoured and loved the first three books in the noughts and crosses series when I was younger, but even though I have had the fourth on my shelf for nearly a year, I just haven’t got round to reading it! I want to do a big series re-read, but noughts and crosses is really sad and emotional and I kind of need to hype myself up for it! Will hopefully be checking this one off my list in 2013!
  3. The Casual Vacancy by J. K Rowling – I know, I know – I still haven’t read the Queen of Amazingness’s latest offering. I’m a bad, bad fan.
  4. The Catcher in The Rye by J. D Salinger – Another Classic. I have a very bad habit of buying classics and been like ‘I will read this because I am an intellectual person’ then re-reading Percy Jackson for the millionth time.
  5. The Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy Sequels by Douglas Adams – My dad and I spotted these in some random shop and I had no money and I begged him to get them for me. And I still haven’t read them – this is why I need a book ban!!
  6. The Discworld Novels by Terry Pratchett – There are so many Discworld books but they are all so good! I have over ten on my shelf that haven’t been read!
  7. The Song of Fire and Ice Series by George R. R. Martin – Its the same with these – too many books so little time!
  8. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo – Seen the musical – loved it. Seeing the film on Thursday. Still haven’t read the book!!
  9. War and Peace, The Great Gatsby, Mansfield Park, To Kill a Mockingbird and The Hunchback of Notre Dame – I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH CLASSICS!!!
  10. Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother The Official Biography by William Shawcross – Ok so I started reading this in June on a jubilee high, its really interesting and good and I still haven’t finished it!!

I hoped you liked my slightly different top ten this week. Hopefully I’ll get to do next weeks, that is if I haven’t gone crazy with coursework!
