Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Books I Need to Find Time to Read
(aka I really need some discipline about my TBR pile)
So, all of these have been on my TBR list for awhile now and yet I haven’t made it to a single one of them yet. See, when it comes to reading books, I have this problem where I’m easily distracted by something new. So, I will have a list of books to read and then a new book (or a new to me book) will come along and then I suddenly want to read that instead. I really should just make a list and stick to it.
- All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
I’ve read nothing but raving reviews of this book and I finally picked it up last week so hopefully I will read it soon!
- The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd
Another one of those I look at every day at work (the library) and think, “I’m going to read that soon.”
- The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Someone suggested this to me after I read and really enjoyed The Bookman’s Tale and it seems really interesting.
- A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra
Another one of those that got so many rave reviews that I feel compelled to read it.
- Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline
This book has caught my attention every time I’ve gone to the book store but I still haven’t bought or read it yet. Fail.
- Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
This freakin’ book. Someone checked it out of our library and hasn’t returned it since March! And we only have one copy! Of course, now the paperback is out so I can just go pick it up. I will. Eventually.
- I Shall Be Near to You by Erin Lindsay McCabe
This book just looks like it would be an amazing story.
- Possession by A.S. Byatt
Someone told me if I liked Donna Tartt that I would probably enjoy A.S. Byatt and it’s been on my list ever since.
- Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
Every quote I’ve seen from this book is wonderful and so I must read it!
- The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
I’ve tried to read this twice and each time I get a little bored and put it down. I will finish it. I will!
How about you guys?
