Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
I have been meaning to participate in this for a few weeks but keep forgetting. Since I just posted my vacation list, I’m going to pick 10 other books I’m looking forward to reading summer.
- The Best of Everything by Rona Jaffe – imagine Sex in the City in 1958. This book was shocking in its day. This is my July RL Book Club selection.
- The Distant Hours by Kate Morton – I’ve detailed my Kate Morton love here at SoB. This is another RLBC read (for August) and it is my favorite of Morton’s. It will have to tide me over until The Secret Keeper is released in October.
- Middlemarch by George Eliot – I started this in May and am toying with the idea of making it a SoB book club book. Since no one comments much, that might be rather pointless but, hey! I like tilting at windmills.
- The First Ian Rutledge Mystery, whatever that is – It is set in the same general time as Maisie Dobbs so I’m intrigued.
- The Brothers K by David James Duncan – yes, it is on my vacation list. No, I probably won’t get to it. I definitely won’t finish it before I get home so it qualifies as summer, too.
- Pride and Prejudice – I need a little Elizabeth and Darcy. It has been too long.
- The Autobiography of Alice B Tokas – I need to keep plugging away at my non-fiction list, which is a much drier endeavor than I anticipated.
- The Thin Man by Graham Greene – Love the classic movie. Sure I’ll enjoy the book.
- The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan – my son has been bugging me to read this for a year. Guess I should before the next one comes out.
- Moby Dick – yes, I’ll be listening to this until the day I die.
