Top Ten Books I Want To Read That I Don’t Own

So, I thought this list would be really hard, as I tend to buy books, and not read them.  But as I have a tendency to keep adding books to my TBR-pile, I actually found that this was easier than I expected!  It’s mostly non-fiction, because I’m more likely to buy non-fiction in print, and yet I’m also more hesitant to buy non-fiction.  Still, these are books I really want to own someday!

  1. Dear Mr. Potter.  A printing was done ages ago, and it looks like another one isn’t going to be done anytime soon, so it actually looks like I missed the boat on this one.  Which bums me out, because I’d love a copy of this book.
  2. Fruits Basket…like, volumes 16 to whatever the last one is (I think it’s 22 or 23 but I can’t remember).  I’ve been so slow with finishing this manga.  I put reading it on hold for some reason I can’t remember, and now it’s out of print.  I think I’ve seen used copies on Amazon before, so I may have to check that out.
  3. Winter by Marissa Meyer.  As it hasn’t come out yet…but I really want to read it!
  4. The Art Of Spirited Away.  I love Spirited Away, and it would be so cool to have this book to look through.
  5. I also want to have a Harry Potter collection!  I have the books in print, but I really want the audio books- both the Stephen Fry narration and the Jim Dale narration.  And there are so many interesting covers of the books out there (like, the Dutch covers are pretty cool, and the Swedish covers are really odd, but entertaining enough to be on a bookshelf).  I don’t even care that I’m sadly not fluent in any other languages, because I am that obsessed with Harry Potter.
  6. Brian Froud’s World Of Faerie.  I LOVE fairies, and while I’d love to have all of Froud’s books, this is the one that is at the top of the list.
  7. The Art Of The Disney Princess.  Apparently, artsy coffee-table books are on my mind today, because I’m just interested enough in Disney Princesses to want this book.
  8. House Of Leaves by Mark Danielewski.  This book sounds completely bizarre and I am utterly confused as to why I don’t have it yet…because I am a fan of weird things.  (Just don’t let my love of YA fool you!)
  9. Unsouled by Neal Shusterman.  I’ve been wanting to read it for a while and yet I never seem to get to it…it’s such a different world that I really can’t wait to see where things go.
  10. School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins.  I really liked Hex Hall, so I don’t get why I don’t have this one yet…especially since this is a spin-off of Hex Hall.
