Top Ten Tuesday - 1

So I've been wanting to do a new meme because my blog is super boring so I decided on this one because I really like the topics. Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish.

Top Ten Books I Feel Everyone Has Read But Me

1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
This is supposed to be one of those books that every teen reads and relates to (like Catcher in the Rye) but I never read it. But not for lack of trying: my sister has a copy and I keep asking if I can borrow it but she doesn't know where it is.

2. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I want to read this so badly! And a lot of people have such rave reviews that it's starting to make me feel left out!

3. The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
This book seems a little weird, but it's like a rite of passage book. It also won an award so it should be a good read.

4. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
I never had to read this for high school and I'm disappointed because I really wish I did. Also, I want to see the references from Easy A.

5. Bumped by Megan McCafferty
This one is a bit of a stretch, but I think it sounds so good and I want to read it!

6. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
Why have I not read this yet???

7. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Another book I feel like I should have read for school but didn't.

8. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
There was a girl at my pool reading this and everyone was astounded that I never read it. I need to see what I'm missing out on.

9. The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier
For my film as lit class senior year, we watched the movie because the book was my teacher's favorite. I also could have read this as a summer reading book but I picked something else. I should see what the hype was about. By the way, the movie was weird.

10. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shephard
I watch the show (which is amazing!) so now I know I'm not going to read the books but they do seem interesting and suspenseful.

I know how you feel with Divergent. I just got the book and I'm finally starting it today. I wanna read Bumped too. And OMG! You have to read The Outsiders. I read it in middle school and it became one of my fave books.

I wouldn't feel bad, I haven't read any of these either. I've heard good things about most of them tho.
