Top Ten Tuesday (1)

The Book Nook's Top Ten Books That:

I Just HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Bookshelf

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Go check out their blog because it is awesome! There you will find many great reviews and some pretty cool people.
 
This is my first Top Ten Tuesday, but I doubt that it will be my last because I am a compulsive list maker. So, yay for lists! This week's list is definitely relevant to my live as I have a lot of books that are in need of loving. As a challenge for myself, I'm going to read all ten of these books this year!
 
Let the list begin:
 
10. The Grimm Fairy Tales- The Grimm Brothers
 
9. Gone With the Wind- Margaret Mitchell
 
8. World of Pies- Karen Stolz
 
7. Love in the Time of Cholera- Gabriel Garcia Marquez
 
6. Atonement- Ian McEwan
 
5. Jane Austen in Scarsdale- Paula Cohen
 
4.The Pilgrims of Rayne- D.J. McHale
I would actually like to read the entire Pendragon series this year. I never got past the Quillan Games but I loved the ones that I did read.  

3. The Last Days- Scott Westerfeld
I am a huge fan of Scott Westerfeld and I loved Peeps but for some reason this novel just didn't do it for me and I stopped reading it.

2. The Lost Symbol- Dan Brown

1. The Murder of King Tut- James Patterson
I'm an Anthropology major who concentrates on pharaonic Egypt and I still haven't read this. I guess I'm apprehensive because I don't want to lose my vision of how stuff went down during the Boy King's last day.

Thanks for reading!
Look out for a small book haul and some more reviews in the coming days!

  2. A lot of people seem to have Atonement sitting around. I would really recommend it, one of my favorites.
