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.
My reading speed has tanked over the last few weeks, partly because we got Carcassonne for the iPad and we’re spending our evenings trying to out-farm each other. Still, I’m hoping to get through a few books this season:
1. “Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. This will be a re-read so I can be prepared for…
4. “The Shadow Lines” by Amitav Ghosh. Another re-read, this time of a college-course book. (I currently have a thing for “shadow” books, apparently.)
7. “Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell” by Susanna Clarke. Ugh, this book. I started it over the summer, but I slowed and stopped about a hundred pages in. I would just quit on it except everyone I know who’s read it adores it.
8. “Shogun” by James Clavell. After seven years together, Kevin has yet to read any Ray Bradbury (ANY) and I have yet to read his all-time favorite book. Time to fix that!
What are you hoping to read this season?
