Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read

This weeks Top Ten Tuesday list (weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) is the Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Haven't Read.
I feel like this is a Book Shaming List.  I am actually super embarrassed that I haven't read these yet. 
Maybe we should start a book shaming website, take a selfie of you with the books you should have read, along with a handwritten note of your excuses.
I'm off to hang my head in shame now........

1.  The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.  I bought this a week ago, and haven't even opened it yet.  Everyone is raving about it, calling it the "next Gone, Girl".  I hate when people say any book is the "next" anything, so I'm probably avoiding it out of principle.

2.  Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas.  I saw this raved about on so many book blogs - I need to read it.

3.  The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness.  I bought this when it came out in 2014.  And I still haven't read it!  No excuses, I just suck.

4.  All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner.  I love Jennifer Weiner.  I don't know why I haven't gotten around to this, but I'm going to before 2016, I swear.

5.  Help for the Haunted by John Searles.  I started this and it was a great story, but then I got too scared to finish.

6.  Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline.  Feels like everybody read this and raved.  So I bought it.  And there it sits on my Kindle bookshelf.

7.  Little Mercies by Heather Gudenkauf.  I love Heather Gudenkauf.  I've read everything she has written, including the prequel for this book.  So why haven't I gotten this?  My nose was out of joint when I got turned down for an ARC on NetGalley, so that's probably it.  I'm so shallow.

8.  The Girl With All the Gifts by M. R. Carey.  This book looks amazing, and right up my alley.  Why it hasn't found a home on my Kindle yet, I just don't know.

9.  Glitter and Glue by Kelly Corrigan.  This was recommended by two of my great friends, who are both excellent moms.  This is a book about what it's like to be the "mean" mom with the "nice" dad.  I've got some experience with that......

10.  You by Caroline Kepnes.  I've been kind of eyeballing this, then I saw that Stephen King tweeted about it, and that sealed the deal.  I can't believe I haven't bought it yet.

Do you have anything on your Book Shaming List?
