Top Ten Tuesday – Spring TBR list.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks topic is Ten books on your Spring TBR list. So here is what I plan to read over the next few months. Although to be honest, it may take me the entire spring just to read War and Peace.

  1. The Noise of Time – Julian Barnes – I don’t actually possess this book yet but I love Barnes and I do intend to buy it as soon as possible.
  2. Room – Emma Donahue (Full House Reading Challenge – Borrowed book) I didn’t really fancy this book when it first came out but since then I have seen the film and I am keen to see how it would work as a book.
  3. Middlesex – Jeffrey Eugenides (Full House Reading Challenge – Diversity). I really enjoyed The Virgin Suicides so I’m looking forward to this one.
  4. The Immoralist – Andre Gide (Full House Reading Challenge – European Author) This has been one my TBR list for a long time although I have only just come into possession of a copy.
  5. Catch 22 – Joseph Heller (Full House Reading Challenge – published Pre 2000) I recently inherited a copy of this book which has also been on the list for a long time.
  6. After Alice – Gregory Maguire – I got this for Christmas a couple of years ago and really ought to have read it by now.
  7. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter – Carson McCullers (Full House Reading Challenge – On TBR Shelf for more than 2 years.) There was a lot of competition for this category. I chose this because it is a classic and I feel I should have read it by now.
  8. Even Dogs in the Wild – Ian Rankin – After reading a couple of this series that I’d missed from the middle, I am now going to read one from near the end. Who says you have to read them in the correct order!
  9. War and Peace – Leo Tolstoy  (Full House Reading Challenge – More than 500 Pages.) This is next on the list once I’ve finished reading Big Brother by Lionel Shriver. I must admit, I’m a bit daunted but now that I’ve said I’m going to read it, I have to read it so that’s good.
  10. Fingersmith – Sarah Waters – This has been recommended to me a couple of times lately so I bought it for my kindle.
