Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme is: Top Ten Books I Really Want To Read But Don't Own Yet.
After writing my list, I realised it might come across as a bit ranty towards the UK bookshops I frequent (Foyles and Waterstones). I love my bookshops but often only impulse buy from them, which isn't a problem. After all, what is the point of going into a bookshop if you don't browse all the shelves? Anyway, this is because my actual TBR list skews very American and has done ever since I got my first Full House book in Orlando, aged 7. Thought it best to add this disclaimer in case I catch flack from a bookseller!
The Cranes Dance by Meg Howrey - I love a ballet book but again haven't been able to find a paperback in a bookshop. Sure, I can get it from a seller on Amazon or whatever but I don't really like doing that.
If I Lie by Corrine Jackson - I've had this on my list for a while but just never gotten around to purchasing it.
For Darkness Shows The Stars by Diana Peterfreund - I WANT THIS SO BADLY! I even considered breaking my Book Depository rule to get it. I'll probably just have to wait until I cross the pond again.
Quiet by Susan Cain - I'm pretty sure this book has made one of my TTT lists before and I still haven't got it. It's not even expensive anymore, I just always get distracted by the fiction in bookshops, which is terrible.
We Are Called To Rise by Laura McBride - This was on my summer long list but I haven't even read half of the short list so buying books from the long list isn't an option at the moment.
Jennifer, Gwyneth, and Me by Rachel Bertsche - I loved MWF Seeking BFF so I really want to read Rachel Bertsche's latest offering.
Someday, Someday Maybe by Lauren Graham - Everyone said this is great. I've never seen a copy in my local Waterstones and a quick search tells me the only branch that has a copy is Cardiff. Helpful.
Breathe, Annie, Breathe by Miranda Kenneally - I NEED the latest instalment in the Hundred Oaks series, obviously. This is actually next in the queue for when I next go Kindle book shopping (I won't hold my breath for the paperback to appear in shops - I don't think I've ever seen a Miranda Kenneally book in Waterstones or Foyles).
