Top Ten Tuesday: Spring Reading

[it sure ain't winter]

The last few days in my neck of the woods have been hovering around 90 degrees- it's almost as if we've bypassed spring completely and are gearing for summer. Hopefully not! Nonetheless, my tentative (ha!) spring reads, brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish:

1. Flight Behavior- Barbara Kingsolver (book club)

2. Antigone- Sophocles (a reread for work)

3. The Invention of Wings- Sue Monk Kidd (book club)

4. Gulp- Mary Roach (nonfiction about the digestive system... I'm serious)

5. Maddadam- Margaret Atwood (time to complete the trilogy!)

6. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest- Stieg Larsson (another trilogy to finish)

7. Zeitoun- Dave Eggars (have been intrigued since it was recommended to me after reading Five Days at Memorial)

8. The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessey- Rachel Joyce (overdue ARC)

9. Why We Write- Meredith Maran (I'm getting ready to kick off a new project soon)

10. The Secret History- Donna Tartt (I've heard many say it's better than The Goldfinch


  1. Oh God, all I can think is 'my Corona" instead of "my Sharona"... So thanks for that :P Good luck with your writing. It's so hard to stick with those projects! Well, for me it is :) Hope you enjoy them all!
    Here's my TTT:

  2. I'm jelly of the warm weather - Midwesterner here, and it was a miraculous 70 degrees yesterday.... and now it's back to 40. Anyways, it's nice to see some backlist books on your list. I have a bunch on mine too @

  3. We're finally getting some spring here in Texas too. So, your list - do finish the Stieg Larsson trilogy. So good. I've wanted to read GULP for some time - maybe on audio and I have THE SECRET HISTORY here as well. Good luck!

  4. Hmm, not sure if I've come across the Meredith Maran book yet *goes off to GoodReads* I haven't read anything by Donna Tartt yet but I did hear the same thing about The Secret History. I really want to read The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy and yay for Antigone (re-read it for the first time since uni last year and quite enjoyed it all over again--as much as one can enjoy a Greek tragedy, that is). Happy reading! :)

  5. Interesting list :) I've heard god things about The Secret History.

  6. Wow! That's a great list.
    I've been meaning to try some of Roach's books for a while now, they keep popping up on lists:-)

  7. You should not move here then if you don't love heat. It literally never gets below 90 farenheit (we do celsius), except at night where for 6 months of the year it might dip to 84 over night. In the dry it gets a bit cooler but the air con and I are friends! I tried to get into Queenie Hennessey but i just couldn't. I hope you enjoy it more because I loved harold fry. Happy reading x
