Hey there! It’s Top Ten Tuesday Time again, hosted by The Broke and Bookish – they’ve been on hiatus and I haven’t participated in one for a while. But I do so love talking about TBRs – my own and yours as well! It’s so much fun to anticipate the things we *might* read soon. I am not a book planner, but I know some of you follow a pretty strict schedule. I’m very moody when it comes to reading, so I may get to these this Spring – or I may not! I intend to read them sometime, in any case, so this list is partly based on what my library holds look like, and partly random.
Kissing the Gunner’s Daughter by Ruth Rendell. It’s been too long since I’ve read an Inspector Wexford mystery and this is the next one on the list (I’m working my way in order, very slowly.)
Exit West by Mohsin Hamid. This one just sounds too good, and I’m high on my library’s hold list for it.
The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez. I’m going to suggest this as one of our book group’s choices when it’s my turn to host next month – I hope they choose it!
Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance. I have to admit, I’m not super excited to read this, but I want to at least give it a try, since it’s such a big book for our moment in time. If any of you guys have read it, please let me know what you think.
The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl by Issa Rae. I bought this on Kindle for $1.99 recently and it looks funny and sharp.
Whatever Happened to Interracial Love by Kathleen Collins. Another recent super cheap Kindle find. Short stories written by an African American woman in the 1960’s only just now published.
Difficult Women by Roxane Gay. Love Roxane Gay. More short stories.
Woman No. 17 by Edan Lepucki. “A sinister, sexy noir about art, motherhood, and the intensity of female friendships” according to Goodreads. I liked her first novel, California.
Happy All The Time by Laurie Colwin. Romance and comedy of manners.
Have you read any of these? Do you plan to? Do you plan out your reading by month or season, or do you fly by the seat of your pants? (And what’s up with that saying anyway? That’s a weird one.) What’s on your Spring TBR?
