Hey there! It’s Top Ten Tuesday time again, hosted by The Broke and Bookish. 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 coming winter – or I may not! I just thought I’d share some of my picks and maybe get you talking about your own.
Lady Susan, The Watsons, Sanditon by Jane Austen. This has been lingering on my Goodreads TBR since 2008! And I now possess a copy of my own. 2018 is the year I finally read this!
Dead Scared (Lacey Flint #2) by Sharon Bolton. I read the first in this series recently and loved it. I’m itching to get to the second, in which DC Flint goes undercover as a university student investigating a rash of apparent suicides.
We Were Eight Years In Power: An American Tragedy by Ta-Nehisi Coates. I think Coates is just brilliant, and I’ve read parts of this essay collection in The Atlantic. I am hoping that Santa brings me this one for Christmas!
Whatever Happened to Interracial Love? by Kathleen Collins. I’ve had this short story collection lingering on my iPad for nearly a year! I’m not a big e-book reader – when I get home from work I don’t really want to read on a screen. But I bought this and a few other things really cheap last winter, so I really need to read them.
Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong. My blogger friends who have read this seems to all really like it. And it’s gotten good critical reviews as well.
Wizard and Glass (Dark Tower #4) by Stephen King. Back in the summer I was all about the first three of this series. Then I had to read some other stuff. But now I’m read to jump back in!
The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration by Isabel Wilkerson. I bought this intending to read it this year; didn’t happen. It’s massive but I’ve heard and read nothing but good things about it and I will complete it in 2018.
The Body in the Library (Miss Marple #3) by Agatha Christie. After reading my first Miss Marple mystery this year, I’m ready to try another one! Agatha Christie makes for good cozy wintry reading.
What We Lose by Zinzi Clemmons. From Goodreads: Raised in Pennsylvania, Thandi views the world of her mother’s childhood in Johannesburg as both impossibly distant and ever present. She is an outsider wherever she goes, caught between being black and white, American and not. She tries to connect these dislocated pieces of her life, and as her mother succumbs to cancer, Thandi searches for an anchor—someone, or something, to love.
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Hey, remember when I had that poll on my blog that you all voted on and this ginormous classic novel won?!? Yes, I was supposed to read this one this year. Whoops! 🙂
Have you read any of these? Do any appeal to you? What are you planning to read this winter?
