Top Ten Tuesday: Last Ten Books That Have Came into My Life

These are the last ten books that I have bought. Most of them are physical, and all of them are still unread. I don't tend to read my books right after I buy them (something I wanted to work on this year, but hey, I still have time) but I am looking forward to all of them. Let me know which ones I should read right away! Leave your post below because I am really looking forward to reading everyone's posts today. 

 

1. Other Voices, Other Rooms by Truman Capote
I just picked this one up over the weekend at my local bookstore in the used section. I have read (and loved) Breakfast at Tiffanys and the short stories in that collection by Capote so I am eager to read more by him. 

2. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Anne Bronte
I bought this one the same say as Capote, and I am equally excited about this one. Anne is the only Bronte I have not read yet, and I have been wanting to pick up a copy of this one for while.

3. Two Boys Kissing, David Levithan
I got this one on my Nook for $1.99 the day the SCOTUS ruling was passed, and I'm looking forward to it. I love Levithan and always find his books to be quick, funny, and heartfelt. 

 

4. The Aviator's Wife, Melanie Benjamin
This one has been on my radar since it was first released a few years ago; I found a used copy at my library for fifty cents and happily snatched it! I really love books about the wives of famous men because their stories are often untold. This one is about Anne Lindbergh. 

5. Hamlet, William Shakespeare
I need to read this in its entirety sometime before taking my teaching qualification tests, and just owning a copy makes me feel a little less stressed. 

6. The Wrath and the Dawn, Renee Ahdieh
Everyone and their mom loved this one, so I had to pick it up. 

 

7. Only Ever Yours, Louise O' Neil
I am so interested in the feminist themes that this novel promises, and I have heard lots of praise for it. 

8. This Shattered World, Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner
I have been meaning to pick this one up forever, but I just got around to it last month. Another one I need to get to ASAP!

9. Madame Bovary. Gustave Flaubert 
I found a beautiful edition of this one in the used section of my local bookstore and picked it up because I have been on the look-out for an edition I liked for a good price. 


10.  A Gun For Sale, Graham Greene
I really loved The End of the Affair by Greene so I definitely want to read more from him. I have been picking his books up here and there as I find them for a good deal. I had never heard of this one, but it seems to be a mystery which intrigues me.   

Leave your link below! I can't wait to add to my TBR!

  1. I really want to read Two Boys Kissing. I'm trying to remember if I have that. I think I might . . . The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is another one I want to read. I think my husband may get to it before I do though.

    It has been ages since I read Madame Bovary. I remember liking it, but I was one of those rare kids who liked just about every book I was required to read in high school. LOL

  4. I should start doing that - picking up newer editions of some of my classic literature that has been almost "too well read" in University - like Madame Bovary!

  5. Great haul! Two boys kissing made my list too. It has been on my TBR for a while and I am excited to read it. I read The Aviator's Wife last year and it was amazing. Only Ever Yours is one of the best books I have read this year, I think! Here is my top ten list: http://bookbinges.blogspot.it/2015/07/top-ten-tuesday-top-books-added-to-my.html

  9. I read Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte and loved it, but have never read this one. Someday, I think. I think she's the underrated Bronte.

    I've heard good things about Only Ever Yours so I'm hoping to read that soonish, too! Happy Tuesday!

    1. Anne is definitely the least talked about Bronte, and I have heard that her works are really great. I'm thinking I will love her novels too!

  11. I've read both Tenant & Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte. I prefer Agnes Grey, but I think Tenant is much better written -- and very good. She reminds me of Austen in places, in Tenant. :)
