This week, The Broke and the Bookish bring us this Top Ten Tuesday. This one was actually easier for me to write than most—I just had to look at all the unread books on my shelf and write them down…and add a few that I’d like to reread 🙂
On Writing – Stephen King. I’ve wanted to read this for ages and just got it in the mail on Friday. I’m so excited to start it after hearing so many great things about it! Of course, I also just love Stephen King.
Camilla and Cecilia – Fanny Burney. I’ve been wanting to read these for a while, after reading Evelina my senior year of college. I loved Evelina and have been looking forward to reading more of Burney! I just got both of these from Amazon, and I can’t want to get started on them.
Desperation and The Regulators – Stephen King. I bought these around the beginning of the year, using a Barnes & Noble gift card that I had gotten for Christmas. They’ve been languishing on my bookshelf since then, because I started my Narnia project almost immediately after buying them. But with these two plus On Writing, I’ll reach my goal of reading 5 Stephen King books this year—hopefully before June!
Villette – Charlotte Brontë. I’m cheating and putting this on here because I’m still toiling through it. I really need to just sit down and commit myself, but I just haven’t been feeling it. I feel like nothing has been happening and I don’t get the big deal about it, but I’m going to keep powering through with the hope that one day I’ll understand!
1984 – George Orwell. I’ve read this one a few times before, but not recently, and I haven’t reviewed it for my blog yet. It’s a great (though terrifying) story and I think it’s definitely time for a reread!
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Agnes Grey – Anne Brontë. Anne is the only one of the Brontës who I haven’t read yet. Experienced Anne Brontë readers: which one should I start with? I don’t really know anything about either of those novels.
Catch-22 – Joseph Heller. I’ve kind of read this one before—I think I’ve attempted twice, actually—and I just haven’t really gotten it. Hoping that the third time will be a charm and I’ll be able to get through it! I’ve always enjoyed reading it when I tried, but it was sort of an “I don’t really know what’s going on” kind of enjoyment, like when I watch hockey.
