Top Ten Tuesday (39): Books I Wanted to Read But Didn't


Technically the topic for this week is Top Ten Books I read in 2013, but since I already did this topic during the week-long top ten thingie, I decided to do a different one. So, thanks to the great idea from my sister, my topic is: Top Ten Books I Wanted to Read But Didn't. I have many, many, many books that I was hoping to read this year, but for one reason or another, I never got around to them. I don't know why. Maybe I was in a reading funk at the time. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood to read that particular kind of book. Mayhaps it was just because I'm a slower reader, with an ever-changing schedule, and didn't have time to get to it. Regardless of the reason, there are far too many books I thought for sure I would read this year (many of which I have on my shelves). Here's to hoping I'll be able to get to them in 2014!

So without further ado, here are ten books I own and most wanted to read, but didn't for some reason:

I love me some book boyfriends, you guys! I was really lucky to read some amazing ones this year. Some were old favorites, some were new and some have even shot right up to the top of favorite guys ever. I just really love a well-written guy... especially if he's a nice guy. I'm such a sucker for the boy next door type, it's not even funny. Le sigh...

So, without further ado, here are ten book boyfriends I fell for from books I've read this year:

Anywhoozle, here are ten picture books, chapter books and middle-grade books that I enjoyed reading this year:

I think this year was particularly wonderful for cover eye candy, let me just say.

I've decided to keep the list to those books that were released this year, regardless of whether or not I had the chance to read them.

The topic this week is Top Ten New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2013. There were quite a few authors I read this year that I had never read before.

After compiling this list, I can see that my goal to read more contemporary was a success! Woo hoo! This year has been so much fun, as far as reading is concerned!
