Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read Yet

What is wrong with me?  I haven't read these?  Do I want to read them?  Yes. They are in my Goodreads list.   Will I?  Well I haven't read them who knows!

In no particular order...

1) Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee

I've written about why I haven't read this yet here.  I need to get over and read it.  Done.

2) Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

Yeah, not sure why I've never read this.  I've heard amazing things about it and I feel like I should read it.

3) Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Possible a cheat because I've tried to read this--twice.  I can't get past the first 20-30 pages.  I feel like it's something I should want to read, and I kind of do.  I feel like I should like this book, but do I need to waste another week on a book that hasn't worked for me the past two times I tried it?

4) Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I originally put this on my list because of the cover.  I think it's gorgeous, and I want to read it!  I want to get to it.  Might be a priority for this semester.

5) Splintered by A.G. Howard

I've been getting more into the retold fairy tales lately.  Plus, I love this cover!

6) The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

I've seen this book all over the place and from the moment I saw, I was interested in it almost immediately.  It sounds intriguing and mysterious.  One day.

7) Fairest: Levana's Story by Marissa Meyer

 WHY?  WHY haven't I read this yet?  Because I'm afraid?  Maybe.  I don't know, but I've been putting it off.  Maybe I want to stretch it out until Winter comes out.  I don't know, but somebody needs to get on top of things already!

8) Serafina and the Black Coat by Robert Beatti

So this only recently came out and I only recently heard of it, but I've been thinking about it since I learned of it.  I will be reading it soon--very soon, but not soon enough!  Also, the cover!  Seriously people, who are you incredibly talented designers creating all these beautiful images?

9) The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

I know.  I know.  Everyone has told me about this book.  People who I would call "readers" have asked me about this book.  I need to try it.

10) The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi

This sounds deliciously dark and dystopic and a little scary.  I think it's the scary part that keeps me at bay.  But it sounds so good!

So I'm thinking that the best idea would be to make these my first priority for fall.  That means when I finish my next two TBR books, I will start with this list.   

What books are left in your TBR that you're shocked haven't been read yet?  Have you already any of the books on my list?  Opinions on which one I start reading?
