Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join.
Who are we kidding? This is pretty much the same TBR list from spring, and it’s been more or less the same on my Goodreads page for this entire year.
Still, here are some books I intend to read very soon:
2) The Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. I finally got “Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest” in paperback, resolved to finally read “Girl Who Played With Fire,” realized I had pretty much forgotten the details of “Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” gave up and read some other books instead. Will I have time for a full trilogy? No. Am I going to put it on my list anyway? Yes.
3) “Notes from a Small Island” by Bill Bryson. This one actually made it home with me from the library, but I had overlapping holds and not enough time to read both books. It went back to the library unread, which in terms of grief is up there with being out of ice cream and discovering a scratch on my favorite DVD.
4) “Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand” by Helen Simonson. I’ve been stalling on this one because I’m 99% sure I’ll like it, and I don’t feel a lot of pressure to read something I think I’ll enjoy.
5) “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” by John Berendt. I’ve heard great things about Berendt and this book, I’ve just never gotten around to reading it. I borrowed it from my dad, oh…four years ago? So I should get on that.
6) “The Second Duchess” by Elizabeth Loupas. I’m wary of all new historical fiction because nothing will ever be as juicy as “The Other Boleyn Girl,” but in terms of history, not much is jucier than the Medicis.
7) “Blue Like Jazz” by Donald Miller. I rarely read nonfiction or books about Christianity, but my friends rave about Donald Miller, so it’s time to finally read this one.
Uh, let’s call it good there, because we all know I’m going to get through two books on this list and then get distracted and read something completely different – like one of the twenty graphic novels I bought from a friend recently…hello there, Batman, how are you today?
