I have a huge list of books I want to read right now, and it's a little over whelming. Here's the top ten books I would love to read this summer. This list is in no particular order.
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
1. On the Road, Jack Kerouac I am very eager to get into the Beat Nic scene and I think this is a good place to start. Plus its a classic road trip novel, what better's than a road trip novel in the summer?
2. Winger, Andrew Smith Contemporaries are great for the summer and this one promises to have a lot of heart, plus I hear it is the first in a series. I am interested in reading a contemporary series, as I never have before.
3. The Winner's Curse, Marie Rutkoski I have seen this one around since its release and I have been very intrigued. Then I saw it on multiple Top Ten books I have read so far this year lists and I decided I should move it up on my TBR list.
4. Choke, Chuck Palahniuk This will be my first Palahniuk, although I have seen the Fight Club movie and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am so eager to dive into his work. This one is about a man who makes his living by dining and pretending to choke in fancy restaurants.
5. Reading Lolita in Tehran, Azar Nafisi This is a nonfiction title I picked up extremely cheap at my local Goodwill. This is a memoir in books, about a female teacher in Tehran who has secret meetings with her students to read and discuss forbidden Western classics.
6. Bridget Jones' Diary, Helen Fielding I have never read this, and recently came across a used copy of the first and second in this series and decided to pick it up. It looks to be an entertaining read.
7. Everybody Sees the Ants, A.S. King This will be my first King book. I have heard great things about her books, which seem to have magical realism which I'm eager to experience.
8. To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Jenny Hann This is another summer time perfect contemporary.
9. A Room with a View, E.M. Forster I have owned this classic for a very long time, and this summer I feel myself drawn to books about self-discovery and self-empowerment. And look how gorgeous that Vintage publishing edition is!
10. Ariel, Sylvia Plath I am currently about half way through this collection of Plath poems and am enjoying it tremendously. I'm taking my time with each poem and have been enjoying listening to Plath read the poems herself via Youtube. I will be posting some thoughts on this collection soon.
What's on your summer TBR? What should I add to mine?
