This week asks for our Top Ten Books from our spring TBR. I think I'll share a mix of books from my new book club (yipee!), challenges, and new releases that will be coming soon in my mailbox.
10. Toni Morrison, A Mercy : This is being read now, for my book club. I'm excited to read some Toni Morrison again. This is a slight book, but I can already tell that it is going to be an intense read.
9. Cheryl Strayed, Wild : I've pre-ordered this, and I'm extremely excited about it. I've been pretty burnt out on memoirs lately, and I've been staying away from personal writing. However, I've been hearing the buzz on this one, and I'm unable to resist.
8. Donna Tartt, The Secret History: This one will count for two challenges, and it has been on my TBR forever.
7. Rosencrans Baldwin, Paris I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down: This one will be arriving from my pre-order right before I go to Paris, so I am looking forward to some appropriately themed reading.
6. J.M. Tohline, The Great Lenore: This is on my guilt list. It is an indie that I really do want to read and keep not getting to. But, I just saw a Great Gatsby play, that made me want to read Fitzgerald, and this is compared to Fitzgerald, so I'm trying to transfer some of that energy.
5. Truman Capote, In Cold Blood: A classic that will count for THREE of my current challenges. I've never read Capote. It's kind of a big hole.
4. Megan Mahew Bergman, Birds of a Lesser Paradise: I had this on Net Galley and let it expire, and so I bought it immediately. I'm going to try to not let it gather too much dust on my shelves.
3. Emily St. John Mandel, The Lola Quartet: I have this one on Net Galley and would like to read it before it expires. Imagine that.
2. Nell Freudenberger, The Newlyweds: This one comes out towards the end of Spring, and I probably won't get it until I get back from Europe, but I'm really jazzed about this one for some reason.
1. Jeffrey Eugenides, The Marriage Plot: Finally. My book club picked this one, and so I will actually be reading it soon and not just putting it on lots of lists.
I'm sure I won't get to all of these, and I'll get distracted by other things, but so be it. What do you plan to read this spring?
