Top Ten Tuesday Freebie!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday has another topic and different bloggers give their top ten. I love making lists, so here's mine for this week!

This week topic is 
Top Ten Tuesday Freebie!

For this Freebie I choose a topic which is bothering me for quite some time. My choice:
Books I Should Have Read Ages Ago

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
Yeah, I know, I'm ashamed of myself *hides*. I should have read this one immediately after publication, but I didn't and still haven't. But I definitely will, because I heard so many great things about it!

2. Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter
I started this book this weekend and it's one of the most recent examples of books I should have read ages ago. I really liked it, can't wait to read the second book. 

3. Nevermore
This book was on my wish list for a very long time and with Enshadowed coming up, I finally bought it and I'm going to start reading it soon!

4. Starcrossed
A book based on Greek mythology? I want! So I bought and still haven't read it. But on the other hand I still have something to look forward to (along with a hundred other books). That's a big part of the fun, right?!

5. Tempest
Books about time traveling just fascinate me. And than that beautiful cover. Why didn't I read this yet?!

6. The Goddess Test
I bought this book recently and it's patiently waiting on my TBR pile until I pick it up and read it. Hopefully this summer!

7. Die For Me
One of the first ebooks I bought! But I'm still not used to having digital books, when I'm picking out a new read I mostly go over to my bookcase. That has to change. 

8. Beautiful Creatures
I picked this book up like a thousand times, but never bought it. In the end I decided to buy it and now I still have to read it. But with the movie coming up I will somewhere in the near future. 

9. Bitten
I've enjoyed quite some books about werewolves and after reading Nightshade by Andrea Cremer I really wanted to read more soon. But then I had to wait while it was shipped and I already started other books and so it became one of the books on my TBR pile. 

10. The fault in our stars
I should probably be ashamed that I haven't read this one either, but I really want to take my time for it. I heard it's so beautiful, but that emotionally it's pretty heavy. 

So this is my Top Ten. I'm curious for the other Freebies! 


  1. So many awesome books you need to pick up Helene! I absolutely loved Anna and the French Kiss, so I think you may too! I still need to pick up Nevermore, Die For Me and the Fault in our Stars! I've heard so many great things about them! At least we'll still have some awesome books to turn to! Fab top ten Helene :)

  2. I need to read those books too. We are in the same boat. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, OMG, I heard so many great things about it. I just can't believe I haven't picked it up yet. Def. will....somethime..

  3. Anna and The Fault in our Stars were wonderful, I'm sure you'll enjoy them when you finally read them.
    My TTT :)

  4. I LOVED Anna and the French Kiss! I hope you do, too, Helene. Thank you for stopping by my blog I really appreciate it!

  5. You definitely have to get to Anna asap - it's one of my fave books! I need to read The Fault in our Stars too.

  6. You should absolutely stop what you're doing right now and read Anna and the French Kiss. For reals. Have you read Lola? If not, add that to your list too. Stephanie Perkins is the bomb. :)

  7. I totally agree with your sentiments about Anna and the French Kiss as I haven't read it yet either and I really should.

    Great list!

  8. I still haven't read most of those either, but you need to get on Fault in Our Stars. I just read it last week after putting it off for a while, and it's SO good.

    Thanks for stopping by my SYTYCD-inspired TTT!

  9. looks like some good books, I haven't read any of them. kaye—the road goes ever ever on

  10. I should so have read Anna as well. Also, The Goddess Test. I just bought Starcrossed - excited for that one!

  11. There are so many books that I think about and wonder why I haven't read yet. I maybe need to make a list like this and then start reading thorugh them!

    I'd say definteily try to read "Anna and the French Kiss" and "The Fault in Our Stars" as soon as possible! Sooooooo good.

    Thanks for stopping by my top ten tv characters!

  12. Anna and the French kiss, Starcrossed, Born at midnight, The godess test, beautiful creatures & The fault in our stars. You are not the only one :p I still need to read these!

    Die for me is okay.. not very good, actually, so there is not a real lost in that one :)


  13. Anna and the French Kiss and The Goddess Test are both completely awesome! I often think this when I avoid popular books for whatever reason - I end up loving them! Maybe I should learn!

    Great list, and thanks for stopping by my post!

  14. Oh no! Never be guilty for not reading! Then reading is less fun. I came to that realization recently. This is TOP TEN BOOKS YOU GET TO READ SOON!

  15. Anna and the French Kiss is amazing, so I'd highly recommend it for you! And I haven't read TFIOS yet, but I need to it sounds great!

  16. There are several books here that I own, and haven't read yet. I really hope I'll feel like "WHY DIDN'T I READ THEM EARLIER??" XD

  17. I'm so bad about this, too! :) You're in good company. As for where to start, I highly recommend The Fault in our Stars. SOOOO amazing! I haven't read Beautiful Creatures and have wanted to for a long time, but every time I pick a new book to read, I forget about it. ::sigh::

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  18. I did not read Anna and the French Kiss until recently and I should have read it a long time ago - it is amazing, hopefully you get a chance to read it soon. :)
