Top 5 Books I Haven’t Read Yet

On the bookshelves in my bedroom, I have a collection of books that I have not read yet! They are books which I have collected over the years as books that I would like to read at some point; but due to several reasons have not managed to get round to yet. So I thought I would try and do a mini Top 5 list, and make a list of books which I would like to read at some point, that I have bought, but not have read a single sentence of yet!


There are of course more than 5 books I have not read yet as the above picture suggests, so here are some of the other books that I own but have not read yet:

The Wild Robot Escapes, Dragon Teeth, Contagion, Supercute Futures, and More Than This.

So without further fuss or delay; here are some books which I haven’t read yet, but would like to. Enjoy!


5. Next (Michael Crichton) – Michael Crichton is my second favourite author, his books however are hard to come by on the UK high streets. Luckily though I found this in a branch of The Works in Chester, in a collection of three other books by Crichton (Micro and Prey). It’s been sitting on my bookshelves ever since. I have though read the other two books (I read Micro about a year before I bought the triple pack).


4. The School for Good and Evil (Soman Chainani) – I have been interested in these books for a while with the main drawing power being the impressive front cover. As for the rest of the book, it has been a while since I read the blurb, but the interest has been strong enough to keep it high on my too be read pile.


3. Steelheart (Brandon Sanderson) – I discovered this one in a branch of Waterstones, and instantly wanted to buy it, and read it. I liked the idea of superheroes possibly being villains and tyrants. It’s the kind of change we may need now that superheroes are ironically, and metaphorically; taking over the world!


2. Nightfall (Jake Halpern and Peter Kujawinski) – I came by this one entirely by chance. Was having a grim morning walking through Worthing, and I went into a Waterstones, and found this along with another book by the same authors called Edgeland; which was much smaller so I read that one first on a train home the following day.


1. Savage Island (Bryony Pearce) – Whilst reading Fir, in some of the back pages, there was a collection of books by the same publisher, in the same genre (horror). This one stood out as it sounded very similar to both The Hunger Games and Battle Royale, so I went and ordered a copy off Amazon. It’s been a bout a year or so since I ordered it, so it’s a little more fresh than some of the other above listings!
