Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s topic for Top Ten Tuesday is “books on my Spring 2014 TBR (to be read) list. I’d like to see how many of these I’ll get through. I’ll set this goal and hopefully achieve it before summer comes around.

Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald

I have a fascination with this era. I don’t mind Scott Fitzgerald’s writing, but I’ve never read much about Zelda. After reading The Paris Wife, I’ll read almost any book that features this group of people.

The Enchanted

I’ve heard so much about this book and so I currently have it sitting in by chapters.indigo.ca shopping cart. I find the narrator, a death row inmate, to be a strange and fascinating choice for a speaker.

Frog Music

I fell in love with Emma Donoghue’s writing with her first novel, Room. I really can’t wait to pick up her latest novel.

This One Summer

I’m always seeking out the next graphic novel that I want to add to my collection and this one fits the bill. I’m super excited to pick up a copy of this one.

Image

Half Bad

I heard about this one from More Than Just Magic. I’m always up for a good witch/wizard story. Plus, I think the cover is pretty cool.

The Tyrant’s Daughter

War. CIA. Rebel factions. What’s stopping you from picking up this book?

The Museum of Extraordinary Things

And returning to my favourite time period (the early Twentieth Century), I can think of nothing better than diving head first into the pages of New York City’s magically romantic, bootlegging,, mystical society.

We Were Liars

The Goodreads description grabbed me on this novel. I’m so intrigued. The description reveals very little about this book, but I do know there will be secrets and plenty of lies.

Image

The Summer I Wasn’t Me

This novel sounds like a very touching and heart-wrenching story. It addresses a difficult subject and is really about a girl trying to find acceptance for who she is.

Panic

I’m curious about this one. A lot of people seem to be comparing it to The Hunger Games. We’ll see. I’d like to find out what it’s like for myself.

    So many great books on this list! The Enchanted was amazing. One of the best I’ve read so far this year. I’m currently reading The Summer I Wasn’t Me and it is heart breaking but excellent. And I’m super excited to read Frog Music, Half Bad, We Were Liars and One Fine Summer.
