[Coffee Shop Talks] Books I Absolutely Had to Buy But They Are Still Sitting On My Bookshelf





The Mortal Instruments Series

I purchased the first three books in the Mortal Instruments series a couple of years ago because every single one of my reading buddies had read it and absolutely loved it. I trusted their opinions enough that I went ahead and bought all three that were out, but I just never made the time to read them. I don't know why. I really don't. I see them sitting on my shelf every day but I just haven't had any desire to read them yet. 

Have you ever purchased books that you really wanted at the time and just let them sit on your shelf instead of reading them?

I have those same books on my bookshelf. I was excited about the series because people raved about them but then I read the first books and didn't see the hype. I also have a majority of the Midnight Breed series but have yet to start them. I really want to but I just keep getting distracted by others books.

This is true for probably half of the books on my shelf and e-reader. I like buying books, so when the mood strikes, I'll already have it. I need to be better though because I don't like letting books sit for too long. Now you've made me want to go buy Vicious...

Yup, I bought the Mortal Instruments books and they're sitting on my shelf as well. I haven't even craked them open. I have tons of books that I've bought that are still sitting on my shelf. One day I'll get to them.

too funny, I actually read this series (atleast the first 3 books) but bought the spin off for the same reason and haven't touched it yet lol

yes, it has happened to me too and then I wonder why my husband won't let me buy more books.

Oh yes! I bought the first books in The Vampire Chronicles series by Anne Rice in a beautiful edition but I haven't read a single book. I'm always about to start but somehow I go and read something else.

I have so many YA werewolf books on my shelf that I bought but have yet to read. I need a good kick in the butt to either read 'em or stop buying 'em. LOL

I'm bad about buying a whole series without read the 1st book. The list is too long to go into which ones I have on my bookshelf and Nook. It's my goal this year to read some of them FINALLY.
