Top 10 Tuesday: Books i resolve to read in 2011January 4, 2011
Another Top 10 Tuesday brought to you once again by the lovely The Broke and the Bookish: http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com/ (Again wordpress isn’t letting me post links right now so you’re getting the bare minimum as far as links go because i hate how messy it looks)
This week. . . the top 10 books i resolve to read in 2011
i know this relates a lot to my last post but i’m going to combine that with other books here i promise.
Mostly this year i want to read a majority of the books that i have sitting on my shelves waiting to be read (i’ll still go to the library and all that jazz but i really need to make a dent in these) so without further adieu:
1. The Vladimir Tod books. . .i have the first 3 or 4 of these waiting and i just haven’t gotten to them
2. The Outsiders. . . i bought this last year because i felt like it was one of those books i should have read but hadn’t
3. The Time Traveler’s Wife. . . one of my favorite people in the world (hi jill if you’re reading this) really enjoyed this book and i would probably eat a rock if she recommended it
4. How They Met and Other Stories. . . i’m ashamed to admit this is a David Levithan book that i haven’t read. . .it’s on my shelf and i’m fairly sure my not reading it it is the reason behind every mysterious bruise and paper-cut i’ve gotten since i’ve owned it and put it on the shelf without reading it.
5. Spud the Madness Continues. . . i read the first book and really enjoyed it so i’m excited to see what happens next.
6. Wuthering Heights. . .again one of those books i feel like i should have read and never did.
7. Anything by Jane Austen. . .i have so many friends who love her books, i feel like i should probably read at least one
8. My new to me Marge Piercy poetry books. . . i found a couple of these at Half Price Books when i was visiting the cornfield a few months ago, i adore Marge Piercy so i’m excited to read more
9. Memoirs of a Geisha. . . i’ve had this one waiting a long time. We were supposed to read it for our FYI groups at my awesome school but then they changed books after we had already picked up Memoirs of a Geisha so i never read it but have wanted to because if it was picked for FYI most likely it’s a decently awesome book.
10. The Kingdom Keepers. . . can someone explain why i haven’t read this before now? Ridiculous.
