Top Ten Tuesday #59 + Teaser Tuesday #20

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 


This week's topic is. . . .well, not all that exciting: Top 10 Books I Want to Read But Don't Own. How can I choose ten? I've got TONS of books I want to read but don't own! It wasn't until recently that I started buying books I've never read before.

The low orange rays from the sun make everything, including the circus, look as though it is aflame before the light disappears completely. It is quicker than Bailey expected, the moment that shifts from fire to twilight, and then the circus lights begin flickering on, all over the tents. The crowd "ooohs" and "ahhs" appropriately, but a few in the front gasp in surprise when the massive sign above the gates begins to sputter and spark. Bailey can't help but smile when it is fully lit, shining like a beacon: Le Cirque des Reves. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (pg. 109)

  1. I have to admit to not being familiar with a lot of the books you've got on your list. I have been wanting to read Taken for so long now, I need to get my hands on that book.

    1. Most of them are either not super well known Middle Grade books or books that have been out for so long now that they've kind of been forgotten.

  2. I need to read Enclave too. I loved The Night Circus!

    1. It sounds a bit like a zombie novel, so I've been putting it off. Oh my gosh, THE NIGHT CIRCUS is amazing!

  3. I read Loki's Wolves recently and can't say it wowed me, but you might enjoy it. :) Were you able to catch the free audiobook of Peter and the Starcatchers from SYNC's YA summer program?

    1. I'm usually pretty gentle of Middle Grade (though I have read disappointing ones). I was not able to catch that! Sadness! :(
