Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR

This has been the saddest reading year for me in recent memory.  I haven't been around on my blog, although I think about it fondly sometimes.  I suffered a head injury in December, which made me kind of fuzzy over Christmas break, which is usually a heavy reading time for me.  Then I caught a cold, which became a sinus infection, which still persists after nearly two months.  So, my energy and focus has been mainly on work.  However, I just attended the Tucson Festival of Books, which got me excited to read again, so I'll start with this week's topic at The Broke and The Bookish- Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR.

10. Karen Russell, Vampires in the Lemon Grove
9. Edward St. Aubyn, The Patrick Melrose Novels
8. Adam Mansbach, Rage is Back

7. Andrew Solomon, Far from the Tree
6. J. Courtney Sullivan, The Engagements
5.Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

4. Chuck Klosterman, Eating the Dinosaur
3.Bejamin Percy, Red Moon
2. Mary Roach, Gulp
1.Meg Wolitzer, The Interestings


  1. Sounds like you've had a pretty awful winter...

    The Bell Jar is a wonderful novel, simply amazing, but maybe start with something lighter/more fun?

    Feel Better!

  2. I just received an ARC for The Interestings and am looking forward to it. And I have to confess- I've never read the Bell Jar! Oops! I guess I better get on it teach her poetry next year to my students.

  3. Your list looks a whole lot like mine! I have a galley of The Interestings that I'm dying to read but also kind of setting aside to savor a bit. Rage is Back sounds fantastic, I really need to grab a copy of it.
