After my foray into exams, I’m back again. Well, mostly. There’s still a long stretch of things to do before the semester ends, including grading, averaging, and All the Christmas Things.
But for now, I’m celebrating finishing comprehensive exams. I won’t know how well or not well they went for another week or so, but whatever happens, I know that I did my best. So I sit here with cupcake in hand, rewarding myself for being done, and The Broke and the Bookish have a booking meme that is Just Right for Me this week—top 10 books on my winter TBR list.
This winter, for the first time in a while, I’ll actually have a break in required reading, and I’ll be able to pick up some books that I’ve been wanting to read but haven’t had the time yet. There are, of course, far more than 10 on my TBR list, but here are the Top Ten on that list:
1. It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens, danah boyd.
2. Hollow City, Ransom Riggs.
3. Egg and Spoon, Gregory Maguire.
4. We Were Liars, E. Lockhart.
5. Through the Woods, Emily Carroll.
6. The Serpent of Venice, Christopher Moore.
7. Havisham: A Novel, Ronald Frame.
8. The Language of Silence, Peggy Web.
9. So We Read On: How the Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures, Maureen Corrigan.
10. How to Build a Girl: A Novel, Caitlin Moran.
