Time for another Top Ten Tuesday, folks! That fancy-pants meme spawned by The Broke and the Bookish continues to ensure that I will post at least once a week. What do I have for you this time around?
The Top Ten Books on My Spring to-be-Read List
1. Scored by Lauren McLaughlin
More YA dystopia! Yummy.
2. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
Sitting on my nightstand waiting for me to finish my latest Edith Wharton. I’ve been meaning to read it since high school and finally picked up a copy at the used bookstore.
3. Crossed by Ally Condy
Looking forward to giving this series a second chance.
4. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
This one piqued my interest during NaNoWriMo last Fall when the author wrote a great pep-talk for the participants.
5. Divergent by Veronica Roth
This book wasn’t even on my radar, but it seems to be on everyone else’s. It’s been popping up on all the book blogs I read and I’ve been convinced to give it a try.
6. The Wind Through the Keyhole by Stephen King
Very excited for the April release of this novel, though I was never able to get into The Dark Tower series.
7. An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
I read about this on another book blog recently (sadly I don’t remember which), and it rapidly shot to the top of my to-read list. Once upon a time I studied mechanical engineering, I adore calculus, and I come from a family that tries to navigate relationships using Game Theory. This book is absolutely up my alley.
8. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Zombies have always been my monster movie matinee favorite, and I’ve heard only great things about this book.
What’s on your list?
A gift from my father shortly before Christmas. I have never read Lovecraft before, so I don’t know what to expect beyond Cthulu.
10. Uglies: Shay’s Story by Scott Westerfeld, Devin Grayson. Illustration by Steven Cummings.
This is a graphic novel handling the story of Uglies from another perspective, that of Tally’s friend Shay. A lot of people seem to hate Shay or think she is whiny or unreasonable, but I have always had a lot of sympathy for her, she’s the casualty of a lot of Tally’s mistakes and lucky breaks.
