Top Ten Tuesdays

Posted 19 March, 2019 by Lianne in Meme / 10 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. In Jaunary 2018 the meme was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR

Kinda exciting but I actually read all of the books I set out to read last winter πŸ™‚ That doesn’t happen all that often these days so hurray!

Anyway, now comes the spring TBR queue…

In no particular order:

  1. Milkman by Anna Burns — This book was long listed for this year’s Women’s Prize so obviously that means I had to bump it up my TBR queue πŸ˜‰ EDIT: Finished reading the book before this list went live on my blog, lol. Review will be going live next week.
  2. The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin — I finally got around to reading The Fifth Season the other week, lol. I’m going to be saddled with final projects and then exams for the next little bit but let’s see if I can squeeze in reading the other two books in the trilogy. I need to know what happens next, lol.
  3. The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin — See #2
  4. The Complete Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino — I’m actually bringing this book with me on my holiday next month. I usually don’t get THAT much reading when I’m on holiday but I have to mix it up a bit between sleeping during the flight and writing in my Traveler’s Notebook lol πŸ˜€
  5. The Armoured Saint by Myke Cole — Kept seeing this book around the fantasy lists and whatnot. Bit of a bonus that it’s a novella so I just might get around to reading it.
  6. Melmoth by Sarah Perry — I forgot which list I saw this book pop up on but the premise sounded so interesting, I couldn’t pass it up! April seems like the perfect time of year to read something gothic, right (other than October)?
  7. Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie — You can never go wrong reading a mystery novel when you’re swamped with exams…right?
  8. Do Not Say We Have Nothing by Madeleine Thien — This book ends up on my spring TBR list every year…Is this the year I finally read it?
  9. Fear and Trembling by Soren Kierkegaard — And now for a bit of re-reading…For this Lenten season I decided to revisit one of his most famous works, Fear and Trembling. It’s a formative piece, and a piece that I’ve had a long history with. Time permitting and my brain isn’t full of ethics (one of my courses this semester), it’ll be nice to revisit this title.
  10. Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare — Beware the Ides of March!

And that’s my list of books that I hope to tackle the next few months xD What are you hoping to read this season? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you! πŸ™‚

  1. This is an ideal list, with a little bit of everything. I’ve seen Milkman and Do Not Say We Have Nothing all around the blogosphere, so I am quite hopeful you will like those. I remember a philosophy professor in college who loved Fear and Trembling, but he struck me as much more grounded than I am, so that book never appealed to me. I hope you have a rich experience with it and all of these.

  2. A good and nicely eclectic list! Jemison is on my to-read list, but not for this spring. I’m going to need to be in the right mood; her books intimidate me.

    And Agatha Christie is an excellent choice for exam week. Or almost any other time. πŸ˜‰

  3. YAY! Congrats on reading all those winter TBR picks, Lianne. That’s AWESOME! Wishing you all the best (and same!) for this spring TBR. Despite having never read an Agatha Christie novel, I’m glad to spy one of those on your list. Hope you enjoy all of these – and thanks for visiting Finding Wonderland last week. Always great to chat with you. πŸ™‚
