Top Ten Tuesday REWIND

A weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is… Top Ten Tuesday REWIND


This week is a Top Ten Tuesday REWIND. Meaning I chose a topic I forgot to do or missed. I decided to choose ten books I feel as though everyone has read but me. This top ten was done way back, back in 2011, before my blogging days. Let’s get started!

1. Lola and the Boy Next Door (Anna and the French Kiss #2) by Stephanie Perkins – At least half my Goodreads friends have read this book. And their average is 4.02. That’s a damn good average. But I don’t know what’s wrong with me because I actually own this and still haven’t read it. Maybe one day.

2. Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer – I don’t know why but this series does not call to me at all. I read the first few pages and just felt so indifferent to it. Everyone tells me to just read it because this is the worst one and the rest are pretty great. I don’t know though.

3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green – Yeah lol.

4. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – I cannot escape this book. Every mystery book is measured up to this. I should probably give this a shot, it’s just not on my immediate radar right now.

5. Me Before You (Me Before You #1) by Jojo Moyes – I have very mixed feelings about this book. Part of me wants to give this a chance, I mean it has a 4.30 rating on Goodreads based on 513,039 ratings. What?! Yeah. But somethings stopping me.

6. The Giver (The Giver Quartet #1) by Lois Lowry – Sorry I just don’t want to read this. No excuses or exclamations. Just…

7. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak – To be completely honest I don’t even know what this is about, just that it takes place during World War II. But, historical fiction has never been my thing so I doubt I’ll ever read this. Sorry!

8. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen – I DEFINITELY WANT TO READ THIS. I promise I will. All I hear about is Mr. Darcy, I need to meet this guy.

9. The Host (The Host #1) by Stephenie Meyer – I feel like everyone’s read this and impatiently waiting for the sequel, if it ever comes. But this is a monster of a book and I have absolutely no interest in trying to read this.

10. The Maze Runner (The Maze Runner #1) by James Dashner – The movie confused me. I’m sure the book will too. Also, everyone’s told me the rest of the books are pretty lackluster so… what’s the point?

What about you guys? Please tell me I’m not alone here.

  1. Don’t feel bad that you haven’t read The Fault In Our Stars…It’s kind of a dud. Just watch the movie instead, you won’t be missing out! 😉 I would however read Lola and the Boy Next Door along with every other Stephanie Perkins book! Great Top Ten! 😀 My Top Ten Tuesday!

  2. #10 movie was very confusing! I think if you like books with crazy level of adrenaline, you should give it a try 🙂

  3. I haven’t read Gone Girl, Pride and Prejudice or The Giver either.. I did see the Gone Girl movie. Because it’s a psychological thriller, I don’t know whether I want to read the book after seeing the movie. I feel like a lot will be ruined already?

  4. Many thoughts on this topic! Firstly, STOP EVERYTHING and read The Book Thief. And then P&P. With regards to Book Thief, I was reluctant and only read it because it was a book club choice. It took me a little bit to get into it and then, when I did, the world could have crumbled around me and I would not have noticed. It is an extraordinary book. Yes, historical fiction might not be everyone’s scene but this is so much more than that.

    Gone Girl and Me Before You – meh. Maybe I was expecting too much (I was late to both) but neither was terribly original or exciting.

    Fault in Our Stars – I did read it when it was first released (I don’t read much YA but I like a tear-jerker). It was good but I’m just so over YA books where a friend/family member dies – why is this such a thing?!

  5. I absolutely love Me Before You. It’s one of my favourite books of all time. So sad though! I’ve read a few of these books and think they’re worth reading! I adored The Lunar Chronicles.

  6. I’ve not read ‘Cinder’ either but several of my friends say it’s amazing! “Lola” is on my (immediate) must read list because I adore ‘Anna and the French Kiss.’ Haven’t read hardly any Austen, but I am an Austen BBC/ITV addict meaning I watch all of the TV or film adaptations. Based on that, Mr. Darcy is amazing (especially Matthew McFayden’s Darcy) although I probably like Mr. Knightley (“Emma”) a *tiny* bit more. 🙂

    1. Yay glad I’m not totally alone! Cinder is one I still can’t believe I haven’t read. And of course I’ve heard of Emma but I definitely want to check it out now. Thanks! 🙂
