Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature from The Broke and the Bookish!
My spring TBR was absolutely hopeless. I got through a total of 2.5 books… which is quite disappointing, but I’m really not particularly good at sticking to TBR lists. I tend to read based on emotion and feeling, rather than a set structure.
That being said, I’ve gotten through a stack of books, which is fantastic!
I do want to give it another shot, since the first time around I did quite well at sticking to the list. I think I just wasn’t in the right mindset for the books I had chosen last time.
1. De Profundis and Other Writings by Oscar Wilde
I read the first page and it’s a total sass attack. The man was PISSED and devastated when he wrote this… I really want to delve into Oscar’s torment and heartache
2. The Letters of J.R.R Tolkien
It’s been staring at me and it’s something I’ve been wanting to get stuck into for a while.
3. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
I have chosen my Dickens!
4. A History of Ancient Britain by Neil Oliver
I love his programs and I’ve been trying to make myself pick this book up- working my way there.
5. New Grub Street by George Gissing
I have heard good things and I wish to see if they’re true.
6. The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbary
It’s been taking up shelf space for TOO LONG. It is time.
7. Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence
I’ve heard the rumours and I would like to find out what I think!
8. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I AM READY TO TACKLE THIS BEAST HEADLONG.
9. Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
It sounds good… it is also pretty. Shh.
10. An Inquiry into Love and Death by Simone St. James.
I love her writing, I’m pretty sure I will love this.
I’m pretty excited about this lot- even if I don’t like them all, they will clear up some space on my shelf and clear my conscience after splurging on a few new books recently!
I love Simone St. James’ writing and I cannot wait to dive in.
