Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
The one New Years resolution I always make is a list of books I’m definitely reading this year. In past years, I haven’t always succeeded but it’s helpful to me to have a list in mind even if I don’t always accomplish it. Which makes no sense, but whatever. Making it official in a blog post that I can look back on should help. *fingers crossed*
The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien [Purchase]
I read this one several decades ago but don’t remember much and ended up quitting mid-way through Two Towers. Hoping to finally be able to cross this off my list.
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë [Purchase]
Next up on the classics I was never forced to read… last year I purchased the Audible narration by Thandie Newton and it sounds beautiful. I’m actually really excited but I hear it’s a sad one.
Thursbitch by Alan Garner [Purchase]
This one has become a running joke at this point. I spent far more than I usually spend on books to get this shipped to from the UK and yet it sits on my shelf collecting dust bunnies.
The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower #1) by Stephen King [Purchase]
Above comment also applies to Gunslinger. Also because I finally conquered The Stand last year and I wanted to read that one before Dark Tower series because Roland. 🙂
Troubled Waters (Elemental Blessings #1) by Sharon Shinn [Purchase]
After I read A Court of Mist and Fury I went a teensy bit crazy for anything similar. Maas recommended almost all of Shinn’s books and this one looks the best. Another possibility is Archangel.
Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie [Purchase]
Anytime I’m in the mood for something cute and fluffy, Bet Me always seems to be at the top of everyone’s lists. I’ve read a few other Crusie’s and they’re fun (Agnes and the Hitman being my absolute favorite) so this one needs to be next.
Undead (Undead #1) by Kirsty McKay [Purchase]
I won this series in a contest years ago and I’m a bit embarrassed that I haven’t made time for it. In an attempt to read more “light” reads, I’d like to finally make time for this fun sounding zombie series.
The Duchess War (Brothers Sinister #1) by Courtney Milan [Purchase]
I adore Courtney Milan. Her Turner series always makes the list for favorite historical romances so I have no idea why I haven’t dove into this one yet. This is the year!
Stop in the Name of Pants! (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson #9) by Louise Rennison [Purchase]
Okay, this one tops it. How do I read 8 installments in a series one year and then not finish? I only have 2 installments left and when thinking of fluffy, fun reads I needed to read this immediately came to mind.
