Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten YA Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/meme brought to you by the folks over at The Broke and the Bookish (the button also belongs to them).  This week’s theme is the Top Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t/Want To Read From X Genre.

I’ve chosen to focus on Young Adult books this week since I haven’t been reading as much of it lately and have many YA books that I can’t believe are still on my TBR instead of in my read pile!


1. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson– I recently read I’ll Give You the Sun and loved it and definitely want to read more of Nelson’s beautiful writing.

2. UnSouled by Neal Shusterman– I loved the first two books in this series, but have been totally dragging heals on finishing it up.  There is no reason for this, other than I can’t complete series if I start them before they’re all published.

3. Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins– I liked Lola and the Boy Next Door and just never got around to reading any more Stephanie Perkins.  I liked her story in My True Love Gave to Me, which reminded me I should read this one, too.

4. The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth– This one was making the rounds when I first started blogging and I added it to the TBR and kind of forgot about.  But a blogging friend read it recently and raved about it, reminding me that maybe I should actually read it.



5. Dangerous Boys by Abigail Haas– I was a big fan of Dangerous Girls and totally meant to pick this one up as soon as it was published and that never happened.  I hope to eventually read it.

6. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart– Another I’ve been meaning to read since I started blogging… and it still hasn’t happened.




7. Adorkable by Sarra Manning– I love Sarra Manning and want to read all her books at some point… this is one of my top picks for her YA titles.

8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor– I’ve never been even curious about reading this series, but I liked Laini Taylor’s story in My True Love Gave to Me and I do enjoy YA fantasy with female leads, so maybe I should finally give it a try.

9. Going Too Far by Jennifer Echols– This is another that it seems like everyone I know has read and I somehow never got around to reading it.  I really don’t know why… the opposites attract thing sounds up my alley.

10. This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales– Another one that made the rounds and received a lot of hype and I never picked it up, though I’ve been curious to.


Have you read any of these books?  Should I give in and try them or keep passing them by?  What are the books you can’t believe you haven’t read yet?

  1. My first thought was, I didn’t like “Daughter of Smoke & Bone” but since our tastes are so different in fantasy you probably will:)

    I’d never heard of Dangerous Boys (or Dangerous Girls) and I definitely need to add Adorkable to my TBR list.

    I love so many of the books on this list that I don’t know where to start, but I think you like Cameron Post!

  2. I liked Isla but it wasn’t my favorite of the three. Still worth the read if you like her writing though! I’ve almost bought This Song Will Save Your Life a few times but haven’t yet. Hopefully we’ll both get to read it (and Daughter of Smoke and Bone) soon! 🙂

  3. I honestly love Going Too Far. Definitely one of my favorite contemps and I actually read it last year for the second time, which I hardly ever do anymore. I also really liked Frankie Landau-Banks. Have you read anything else by e. lockhart? The Boyfriend List series is good too!

  4. You have some great books ahead of you! I read I’ll Give You the Sun before The Sky is Everywhere, and while I definitely prefer IGYTS, The Sky is Everywhere is still a beautiful story. Jandy Nelson’s writing just gets me. I also LOVED Dangerous Boys and This Song will Save Your Life!

  5. The Sky is Everywhere is one of my favorite books EVER! I adore the Daughter of Smoke and Bone series, it’s amazing. Going Too Far is very good too. I hope you read them all 🙂
