Top Ten Tuesday – Spring TBR

7aabb-toptentuesday2

Top Ten Books on Spring TBR. (Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.) (If I ever manage to finish the two books I am currently reading which I feel like I have been reading forever.)

  1. The Heart Goes Last – Margaret Atwood (2015) The only current book on this list. Really excited to read this as Atwood is my favourite author. Slightly regretting having bought this on my kindle so it won’t have a spot with all the others on my shelves but it was so cheap I couldn’t let it go.
  2. Half Blood Blues – Esi Edugyan (2011) This is for the Eclectic Reader Challenge – genre Booker Prize nominated.
  3. Water for Elephants – Sara Gruen (2006) Don’t really know anything about this one but it sounded interesting and has good reviews.
  4. If This is a Man – Primo Levi (1947) This has been on my list of things to read for a long time. Thanks to the Non Fiction challenge, I am finally going to get it read.
  5. Small Island – Andrea Levy (2004) This is also for the Eclectic Reader Challenge – genre Immigrant experience. I’ve read one other book by Levy and I found it enjoyable and I also watched the TV adaptation so looking forward to this one.
  6. The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern (2011) I’ve heard a lot of good things about this one. It’s a long time since I’ve read any magic realism.
  7. The Redbreast – Jo Nesbo (2000) Another author I’ve been meaning to read for a while. I love a decent detective story and again, I’ve heard good things about Nesbo.
  8. The Damned United – David Peace (2006) I inherited this book and although I’m not really a massive football fan, Clough was such a fascinating character, I’m going to give this one a go.
  9. Just Kids – Patti Smith (2010) This was a Christmas present and I am keen to read it as Smith is one of my favourite recording artists.
  10. Fingersmith – Sarah Waters (2002) I haven’t read any Waters yet and I can’t help feeling this is a bit remiss of me.
