Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books On My Winter TBR List.
I feel like I’ve written a bunch of lists lately focusing on upcoming new releases and sequels, and I don’t want to repeat myself, so I’ll take a slightly different approach this week. Breaking my list into two sections:
Top 5 Graphic Novels (or Series) On My Winter TBR List:
1) Runaways by Brian K. Vaughan: 11 volumes in all. I don’t know if I’ll read them straight through, but I intend to at least make a dent this winter.
2) The Unwritten by Mike Carey. I have the first four volumes, but I’ll be happy if I get through 1 or 2, for starters.
3) Fairest In All The Land by Bill Willingham: A new hardcover stand-alone volume that connects to the worlds of Fables and Fairest.
4) Locke & Key (volume 6): Alpha & Omega by Joe Hill: Dying to read the conclusion of this amazing series.
5) Buffy/Angel & Faith/Willow: I need to catch up on all of the most recent volumes! More on the way in early 2014!
Top 5 Books That I Own But Haven’t Read Yet… But I Vow To Read Them This Winter!
1) The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker
2) The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer
3) Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick
4) Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
5) Dreams and Shadows by C. Robert Cargill
… and one more for good luck:
Back in September, I set myself a “back to school” reading goal, stating that I wanted to reread three books that I haven’t read since my high school days at some point during the current school year. Guess how many I’ve read so far? That’s correct: zero. So it’s time to get cracking on my school “assignment” as well, and what better place to start than with To Kill A Mockingbird?
So there you have it — my (fingers crossed) not-overly-ambitious Winter TBR List. Let’s see if I can finally polish off some of these! Because more and more and more books are on the way in 2014…
