Top Ten Tuesday- What am I waiting for?

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's edition is as follows:
Top Ten Books That Have Been On My Shelf For The Longest But I've Never Read.

Well I have over 400 books on the shelf.  I know it is a ridiculously big TBR pile and I plan on going on a book buying ban ASAP.  Anyhow many of the books that are there have been sitting on my shelf for years.  RIDICULOUS!

I have to admit that most of my books will be adult books as I have only started reading YA in the past year.  Well, here's my list:

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller- This is a classic and I know I have to be in the right frame of mind to read it... hence my procrastination

Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt- I really want to read this so I'm not sure why I keep putting it off

A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth- Well it's not surprise why I'm putting this off.. this book is a behemoth- a ridiculous amount of pages.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo- I think this needs to go on my tbr list for December. It's supposed to be amazing

The World According to Garp by John Irving- I think everyone and their mother has read this. It looks great.

The Godfather by Mario Puzo- Another classic

Good Grief by Lolly Winston- This book looked so good when I got it and then school happened and I never got to it.  I've been out of school for 3 years now. I think I should pick it up.

Half Magic by Edward Eager- This book was given to me by my practicum teacher- over 3 years ago! Yikes!

I am Legend by Richard Matheson- I got this book after the movie came out and then never got around to reading it.

Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood by Rebecca Wells- I enjoyed the movie and wanted to read the book.  

Well there it is... I can't wait to see what you have been hoarding on your bookshelves :)


  1. Oh you should definitely get onto I Am Legend asap! Such a great book, one of my favourites!

  2. Angela's Ashes is intense but fantastic. But, yeah, the page count on Suitable Boy? gaah I have a few on my shelf like that.

  3. John Irving is an old favorite of mine. I hope The World According to Garp makes it off your list soon. Here is my list http://wp.me/pzUn5-FU

  4. Catch-22 is AMAZING. You really should read it as soon as you can. It's one of my favorites. I hope you end up loving it just as much as I do!

  5. The Godfather is excellent - loved it! :)
