If I Had All Day to Read

So, I started this meme up last month and themed my books to paranormal ones I really wished I had gotten to. I'm going to now do this at the end of every month. List 10 or more books I wish I had had time to read that are on my stacks of books to read.

This month, I'm basically going with the Thanksgiving. Books I'm thankful, really thankful to have, but just didn't get around to reading! I know.. I really have a problem.. a book problem. Someone please commit me.

Here are all the books I'm thankful to have my paws on, but haven't read yet (I'm narrowing it a bit, obviously):
Rapture of the Deep by L.A. Meyer
The Thirteenth Child by Patricia Wrede
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
Firespell by Chloe Neill
Pretty Dead by Francesca Lia Block
The Demon's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda
Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater
Wings by Aprilynne Pike
Swoon by Nina Malkin

Oh so many books. I narrowed it down to 10. We'll see if I can get to it next month!

Please share a book below that you really wished you had gotten to, but just didn't find time for.

Oh and please steal this idea if you like it! :) It's like a reverse Month in Review for me.


  1. Do you mind if I do this too?
    I really like this idea.

    Going Bovine is waiting on my shelf for me.
    I loved Eyes Like Stars. I've had friends that couldn't get into it. I love the whole idea & the characters are very entertaining.

    If I pick a book you haven't mentioned: Hush, Hush.
    I won it from a friend of mine & haven't had time to read it.

    Hopefully December will be better.

  2. ) like the new theme. I must have missed this meme last month. LOVE IT, I will have to add it.


  3. I'm going to have to check out some of those. ;)

    I'm only 26 but I would have to go back to my childhood and say that I wished I had gotten to read more of the Babysitter Club books and The Nancy Drew series. I may have to read them now just because.

  4. I wish I had gotten around to reading Soulless by Gail Carriger! Maybe over Christmas break :)

  5. Great list. I wish I had gotten to The Hunger Games. I have heard such good things about it.

  6. The third Luxe, Envy came with me on my Thanksgiving holiday but did not get read! I could easily come up with 10 off the top of my tbr book shelf also!!

  7. Also! Not sure when you revamped your page, but it looks GREAT! :D

  8. I wish I had gotten to Magic Under Glass.

  9. Can I just be vague and say any of the 50+ books sitting unread on my book shelf? Because really, any of them would do.

    But if I were to pick, I'm still bummed I haven't found time for:
    Shadow's Edge by Brent Weeks
    Lament by Maggie Stiefvater
    Soulless by Gail Carriger
    Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
    The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
    Blue Moon by Alyson Noel

    So many books and no time!

  10. You have a great list of books to read! Eyes Like Stars was awesome! Read it!

    I can't wait to read Firespell by Chloe Neill. Her adult series kicks ass.

    I have a few books I want to read that I've had for a while. Witch Fury by Anya Bast is one. :)

  11. Ooh, I like this meme!

    I really enjoyed Devil's Kiss and Wings. You've got some great books there :)

    Btw, I LOVE your new blog look.

  12. I have The Devil's Kiss on my shelves too and really need to get to it.

  13. I think you should start with Eyes like Stars! I have an Arc of In a Heartbeat waiting for me.. I just can find the time (damn school!)

  14. I LOVED Eyes Like Stars... defintely one of my favs of 09!

    DEVIL'S KISS is really good... I thought you had already read it actually, since you went and saw him...

    I really liked SWOON, but it is an acquired taste. :/

    PRETTY DEAD and BALLAD are on my TBR pile... as are some of the others. But those two are near the top! :)

  15. I'm so jealous of all those books you have your paws on. Especially Pretty Dead. I feel like I have been wanting to read it for AGES!

  16. I have more than a few books that I wish I had gotten around to reading as well. I have to admit that I am a bit jealous of the books you have waiting for you though.

    I really want to read Eyes Like Stars and Wings in particular. I hope you get around to all of these this month!

  17. I have a few books that I havent gotten around to reading yet and one of them is Hush Hush. I bought a copy for myself and its still just sitting on my bookshelf.

  18. For me its:
    Rumors by Anna Godbersen
    A Charmed Death by Madelyn Alt
    The trouble with Magic by Madelyn Alt
    A Living Nightmare by Darren Shan
    The Vampire's Assistant by Darren Shan
    Tunnels of Blood by Darren Shan
    Gone by Lisa Mcmann

    Grr, I hate school

  19. ooh! Awesome books! To bad there are not enough hours in the day, huh?

  20. Thats a cool list. I've read one of those books. My list would be:
    My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
    Intertwined by Gena Showalter
    Going Bovine by Libba Bray
    The Ghost in the Machine by Patrick Carman
    Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran
    Fire by Kristin Cashore

  21. I'll commit a library...or a bookstore - you can be crazy in quite - and I'll come visit :)

    Oh man, I'm looking at (some) of my TBR's so hard to pick from them when I need a new one - they all call to me.

    What haven't I read yet? Mostly seconds (or thirds) in series I have started. I liked the first books well enough to buy more but for some reason I haven't gotten a chance to read them...

  22. Would love to get Storm Glass by Maria V. Snyder and Moonlight by Rachel Hawthorne. probably won't get to them until January since I am concentrating on Christmas books right now.

  23. Wings, Swoon, and Eyes Like Stars are books I've been wanting read too! Ahhh they look so awesome.

    I really wanted to read my copy of "Shrinking Violet" but haven't gotten around to it yet.

  24. If I had all day to read, I'd already finished Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater and How It Ends by Laura Wiess.

  25. Ballad is so, so yummy. Nom nom nom!

  26. Interesting meme! I don't think I could list the books that I wish I had gotten to, because the list would just keep getting longer

  27. I have Shiver, The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Poison Study, Speak, City of Bones, Perfect Chemistry, and Evermore, just to name a few, that I haven't read yet but are waiting for me. Sad, I know. I shold really get to them once I finish with review books. Great meme.


  28. Cool idea! So um... if they're just sitting around on your shelf moping about not being read yet, can I come to your house for a day and feast my eyes upon their lonely pages? Yes? Yes! Lots of those are on my wishlist - hope you enjoy reading :D

    I got "If I Stay" the other week but haven't gotten around to reading it yet. I've read such great reviews about this book though!

  29. Forest Born, by Shannon Hale is on my list to read soon...


Leave some love!
