1 girl….2 many books!

Top 10 Tuesday 25th December

on December 25, 2018

Merry Christmas peeps, if that’s a thing you celebrate! It’s a good day for a Top 10 Tuesday, (originally created by The Broke & the Bookish) from Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Today the topic is:

Top 10 Books I’d Like To Find Under My Christmas Tree

  1. The Rise And Fall Of Becky Sharp by Sarra Manning. I love Sarra Manning’s books! I went through quite a binge earlier this year reading 3-4 of her books many times. This has been out probably 2 or so months and I still don’t have it yet.
  2. Circe by Madeline Miller. I really loved Song Of Achilles and this has been on my Wishlist for a while.
  3. The Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer. I’ve never read any of this author’s books but I know a few people who are huge fans and I see a fair bit of love on social media for them so I’d really like to try them.
  4. The 7 Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton. This sounds so good! It’s like a Groundhog Day where a man relives the same day over and over until he can identify Evelyn Hardcastle’s murderer. Each new day he wakes up in a different body and I think he learns more or less information depending on what person he wakes up inhabiting. I really, really want to read this!
  5. The Tattooist Of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. I’ve heard amazing things about this and I missed an opportunity to see the author at a local event here unfortunately, or I’d have a copy of this by now. I’m a bit burned out from Auschwitz and WWII stories at the moment, because I’ve read quite a few of them this year but I’d like to read this some day.
  6. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard. I’m curious about this series.
  7. A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. This has been on my Wishlist for literally years. A long time now. Something actually reminded me about it the other day and now I’m all curious about it again.
  8. Eggshell Skull by Bri Lee. A lot of people I follow on social media have really sung the praises of this memoir which tackles the #MeToo movement, based on the author’s experience as a judge’s associate in the Queensland District Court. And then she was in the courtroom telling her own story. This sounds like a very powerful read.
  9. Where The Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens. Another book that I’ve seen a little bit about lately and it sounds really good – definitely my sort of read!
  10. Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver. I’ve never read a Barbara Kingsolver novel. We own several – The Poisonwood Bible is one of my husband’s favourite books and there’s a few others floating around the house as well. This sounds good and I know someone that I have very similar reading tastes to that really liked it.

Just some of the books I’d like to get my hands one at some stage. To be honest I know what books I’m getting for Christmas (I chose them, my husband wrapped them for me so that my kids can see me open a few gifts on Christmas morning) and these aren’t it but it’s always good to keep a little list handy to refer back to because I know I’m getting money for Christmas from family and I’m sure books will be part of my purchases!

Hopefully you all have a wonderful holiday celebration and Santa brings you new reading material for 2019!

    Ooh Circe *nods* I keep seeing really good reviews for that. I want to read that too. And 7 Deaths- same thing.

    Merry Christmas to you!!

  8. I have a copy of Truthwitch that I haven’t managed to read yet. *sigh* Soon, I hope.

    Merry Christmas!

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!

  9. What books did you choose for yourself? My mother-in-law gave me Becoming, which my wife thought I’d like (but didn’t tell me about).

    My TTT

    • I chose Becoming by Michelle Obama (so snap!) and Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin because if I can’t have The Winds of Winter, then I may as well re-immerse myself in that world in a different way, haha.

  10. Great list! I haven’t read any of them yet but many sound good 🙂 Truthwitch has been on my list for a long time. Merry Christmas!
