Books I had to buy but I never read

This post is based off an old topic created by The Broke and the Bookish. You can find out more info here

We’ve all been there before. You hear about a book and you have to get your hands on a copy immediately. And you do – but for some reason it sits on your shelf for what feels like ever and continues to gather dust. So I’m going to show you a few books that I have had to buy but never read. I don’t have much to say about them (sorry) but it was pretty much the covers and or titles that sold me on them. ❁

1. The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly by Stephanie Oakes
2. All the Rage by Courtney Summers
3. The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
4. Uprooted by Naomi Novik 


  1. I hope you’ll get to The Lies of Locke Lamora soon! I really love that series. I have All the Rage on my shelf as well. I received it for free, but still feel guilty about the fact that I haven’t read it…

  2. I second Jolien! The Lies of Locke Lamora is a lot of fun, and in the second book there are pirates. Uprooted is high up on my TBR list, too (the cover is so very pretty).
