5 Fandom Friday is a geek-blogger community building project started and hosted by The Nerdy Girlie and SuperSpaceChick. Every Friday, post a top 5 list based on a predetermined topic that can be found on this master post - you can also find more info on the project there. Participate as frequently or infrequently as you like, and if a topic doesn't especially appeal to you, feel free to put your own twist on it.
This week's theme: Things I've Bought But Haven't Read/Watched/Played Yet
These are all books because I have way more books than I can read, but I can't stop buying them.
1) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Despite how much I was looking forward to this book, I still haven't read it! The crazy thing is, I even have 2 copies of it - the US and UK versions. The UK one the Sister and I picked up last year in London. This is one of her favorite books.
2) The Night Itself by Zoë Marriott
While we were in London last year, I also picked up a copy of The Night Itself because I loved Marriott's Shadows on the Moon, and I adored this original first cover for The Night Itself. Plus, at the time, the book wasn't available in the U.S. yet! Still haven't read it yet though. *sigh*
3) Dreams of Gods & Monsters by Laini Taylor
This is the conclusion to Laini Taylor's Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy, which I've been loving because Taylor's writing and world-building is absolutely exquisite. I loved where the story was going by the end of Book 2, so of course, I pre-ordered this baby. Why haven't I read it yet then? No idea. But SOON because I do seriously need to know what happens.
4) I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
So many people were looking forward to this one last year, including me. Now that it has a Prinz under its belt, I should probably finally read the copy that's been sitting on my coffee table for months.
5) Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
I've legit had a copy of this book since like 2006 and I still haven't read it, despite wanting to and despite numerous recommendations from friends. In my defense, it is a rather hefty volume.
