Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books On My Summer TBR list


Well, it isn’t summer here, so this will be my Winter TBR list. I found this through Anna at Anna’s Reading List. This is organised by the lovely ladies at The Broke and Bookish.

I have a huge, monstrous, gigantic TBR pile. Forget pile, it’s a mountain. Climbing that mountain gets more and more difficult the longer I exist, as I just keep buying more books! After the hauls of the past few weeks, my list has gone from 250+ to… oh heaven knows. So this winter break, I fully intend to get cracking on getting this list down.

At least this list will give me some accountability!





Oh wow.

I’ve read Mrs Dalloway before, for year 11 English and I loathed it entirely. My good friend has told me to give it another chance and now I have no choice, as it is on next semester’s reading list for Modernism. Fan-bloody-tastic.

I really want to try another Bronte sister. I’ve read Jane Eyre many times. I have tried and failed to read Wuthering Heights on three occasions. I started The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and got distracted… Agnes Grey is short and apparently very good.

Gone Girl is a bandwagon I haven’t leapt on yet, so I am interested to see what all the fuss is about.

The Bell Jar and Fahrenheit 451 are books I feel I should have read, but have not.

Goodbye to All That will possibly make up part of my honours year next year. I’m hoping to focus on WWI Literature, unless I think of something else before that. I’m slightly tempted to change to study Robbie Burns… Not sure.

How It Feels is basically a book I bought very, very cheaply which is taking up a lot of space on my bookshelf.

I adore the Call the Midwife TV program, so the book will hopefully be right up my alley. I like nursing memoirs a lot!

My friend gave me Three Men in a Boat and as yet, I haven’t read it. I’ve heard all good things, so giving this one a read!

Georgian London: Into the Streets looks really interesting. I love learning more about London!

  1. I read Gone Girl when it first came out… Before all the movie hype. I read Gillian Flynn’s other 2 novels first. She is a great writer. I will note though that I am looking forward to seeing the movie. I hope they do it justice! Read it, jump on the bandwagon… You won’t regret it!

  2. PS- I am a little ashamed to say, but I too thought I should read The Bell Jar because of it’s literary stance…. And omg, terrible decision. About 4 hours of my life I will never get back. Was so glad when it was over lol!

Tell me what you think!
