top ten books i want to read but don't own yet

It's time for another Top Ten Tuesday! This week, The Broke and the Bookish is asking us to talk about books on our wish lists - which is a very fitting theme, since my birthday is next week. (Hint hint, any friends/family that read this). Basically, this whole post is going to be filled with me lusting over pretty books, so let's just prepare ourselves early on, shall we? 

1. Unravel Me  and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi - Shatter Me was just amazing, and I read it a few months back. The fact that I haven't picked up these two yet is just unacceptable. NEED. 

2. Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira - I've wanted this book for sooooo loooooong. Look at the cover. Look at the description. I just. UGH. The concept is just so intriguing to me, I feel like I won't physically be able to feel happiness until I get my hands on this beautiful specimen. 

3. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey - I'm kind of slowly getting into a bit of a post-apocalyptic kick right now. Or maybe it's just my obsession with this book that's making me think about aliens and the end of life as we know it constantly. I feel like I'll be completely terrified after I read this but we're just gonna roll with it. 

4. Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler - Do you ever have those books that you just obsessively look at, pick up, and then put down whenever you go to the bookstore? That's this book for me. I discovered it when it first came out a couple of years ago and for some reason, didn't buy it. And I still haven't. And every single time I go to Chapters, I pick it up and decide against it. The ratings aren't even that great. I just want it, okay? 

5. Is Everyone Hanging Out WIthout Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling - This is basically the same thing as Why We Broke Up. I just eternally love Mindy Kaling. I just want her to be my best friend. I just want to read this book and hug it forever. 

6. The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith - I read her other two books at the beginning of summer and absolutely loved them. Jennifer E. Smith just does so well with cutesy contemporary YA. Honestly, the only thing holding me back is the fact that it's still in hardcover and I'm too cheap to pay for it. 

7. Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins - First of all, this cover! Perfect blend of girly and badass. To be perfectly honest, I'm not 100% sure what this is all about aside from the Goodreads description, but it just sounds like such a fun read. 

8. Let's Get Lost by Adi Alsaid - It wouldn't be a books-I-want list without a road trip story. That's all there is to it. 

9. Cress by Marissa Meyer - Just because I have Cinder and Scarlet and I really want to binge read the series. But again, full-price hardcovers are so expensive it hurts. 

10. The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson - Everyone has been going nuts about this book lately. And it sounds awesome - runaway princess, mystery, assassins... It's got all the makings of a great story. Plus, I'm trying to expand away from my little contemporary comfort zone, and this seems like a good transition!

I mean, feel free to buy me any of these books. If you want. Just sayin'. ;)
