Each week, The Broke and the Bookish holds a weekly booking meme, Top Ten Tuesday. I managed to miss last week due to the hectic beginning of the semester, but this week I’m back with ten books that I want to read but don’t yet own. Now I’m having a difficult time narrowing it down to just ten because there are so very many books that I want to read and so very many books that I don’t yet own. But here goes:
1. The Walking Dead.
Ok, so I know this is more than one book. It’s lots of comics, actually, but it’s a series that I really want to read, and listing them individually would take up more room than I have.
2. Hold Me Closer Necromancer, Lish McBride.
And also the second of these, Necromancing the Stone. Tongue-in-cheek YA about necromancers? Don’t mind of I do.
Another set of comics, Saga has been garnering quite a lot of positive attention, and it looks fascinating.
4. Clown Girl, Monica Drake.
Last year, I heard Monica Drake give a reading with Chuck Palahniuk. She was witty and dark, and I’ve wanted to read something by her ever since.
5. Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, Janisse Ray.
I’ve heard a lot of buzz about Ray’s memoir, and considering my interest in Southern literature, I can’t wait to give this one a read.
6. Amateur Night at the Bubblegum Kittikat, Victoria Fedden.
Another memoir, I’ve heard that this one is laugh-out-loud funny. It has a hell of a title, at the very least.
7. Hollow City, Ransom Riggs.
I read the first in this series, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, right after it was released, and I was entranced. I’m interested to see what happens next.
8. I Wear the Black Hat: Grappling with Villains, Chuck Klosterman.
I really enjoy reading Klosterman’s essays, and this collection sounds like a gem.
9. Wonder Women: Feminisms and Superheroes, Lillian Robinson.
This book just looks and sounds delightful, and I’d like to sink my teeth into it.
10. The Goldfinch, Donna Tartt.
I just keep hearing amazing things about this novel, so it’s on the TBR list.
