Top Ten Books I Just HAD to Buy... But Are Still Sitting On My Bookshelf

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme/feature hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is top ten books I just HAD to buy... but are still sitting on my bookshelf.
1. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater - I have both of the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, and have had them since they came out. I was so excited when I got them too...
2. Take Me There by Carolee Dean - I've heard great things and I spent my last few cents buying this one.
3. Fallen by Lauren Kate - Again, I've heard great things. It has such a pretty cover too!
4. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - I need to get around to this one. It's a classic, and I've been telling myself, next week since I first got it three years ago.
5. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larson - When I bought this one I seriously couldn't wait to start it. It sounded so mysterious and awesome. But I keep putting it off because of how big it is, plus it's not YA.
6. The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson - Heard great things, looked forward to it, same ol', same ol'.
7. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver - Seriously. My favorite book ever is Delirium by Lauren Oliver. And I still haven't read this one!
8. Wake by Lisa McMann - I have the whole series on my shelf, and I've had Wake for at least a couple years, but I never seem to have time to start another series.
9. Dark Visions by L.J. Smith - I've had this one for a few years, and I think I was excited about it back then. Now I'm just intimidated by its hugeness.
10. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa - I know, these books are supposed to be amazing. And there's a freaking love triangle! How could I possibly resist? But alas, my laziness is even cutting into my reading habits nowadays.

You have a what's what list of YA lit. Several of the books your list are on my TBR pile, too, though my pile is in a library so I don't have to pay for them

I'm amazed that you are in hs and yet find time to read anything! HS years are lean years for readers, as a rule.

Here is my Top Ten:

You have to read the wake Trilogy, I loved it and i'm not a YA fan.

I haven't read Wuthering Heights in so long, it'll be like reading for the first time for me. I need to pick it up again soon

I have Fallen sitting on my shelf too! You should really read Wake, it is so good!

Wuthering Heights is on my list for this year. I have no idea why I haven't read it yet. I can't believe no one made me throughout my education.

Check out my list here:
