Top Ten Tuesday (9-20-11)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week, they post a different prompt and you get to create your own top ten list. It's a great way to meet other bloggers and add even more books to your huge TBR pile! This week's topic:

Books I Feel As Though Everyone Has Read But Me

1) Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen - don't worry though, it's in my TBR pile and I hope to get to it this fall or winter!

2) The Distant Hours by Kate Morton - everyone raves about this book and I have yet to read it. And everytime I go to borrow it from the library, it's already on hold for 5 other people! Hopefully, I can get my hands on it soon!

3) Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson - another book that is in my TBR pile and waiting to be read.

4) Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens - we never read this one in high school or college, but I'm hoping to get to it someday.

5) The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - EVERYONE has read this book but me! And with so many people reading it, I keep on wanting to see what all the hype is about. Maybe I will get it sometime this year.

6) The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown - I bought this book last spring and it's waiting for my in my TBR pile.

7) The Very Thought of You by Alison Rosie - I know that everyone hasn't read this book, but it's something that really appeals to me (WWII), so it seems read that I haven't read it yet. I will get there someday! 

8) The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy - once again, I know everyone hasn't read this book, but I've seen so many great reviews about it that I feel like everyone is talking about it but me!

Well, I could only come up with eight this week. What books do you feel like everyone has read but you? I'm excited to see what everyone says!


  1. Out of all of these I have only read the Hunger Games, but a lot of these books I haven't ever heard of.

  2. I recently checked out the Soldier's wife from the library.

    I also recently finished the Hunger Games trilogy. Very hype-worthy.

    Oh and you should read Sense and Sensibility. It's cute.

  3. I have only read Hunger Games, dystopian is not for me I won't continue.

    I have considered The Weird Sisters.

  4. I've only read Sense and Sensibility out of this list! I really want to read The Hunger Games - I just haven't gotten around to it yet!

  5. I have read the Hunger Games, the others I have not. I want to read the Weird Sisters. It has a simple cover that I just adore.

  6. I've only read Oliver Twist and The Weird Sisters. I think I was one of the very few who didn't love The Weird Sisters.
