I have not had a lot of extra reading or blogging time this semester, so I have a huge pile of books I really want to get to. I know I probably won't get to all of these before the semester ends and my summer semester begins, but these are ten books that I'm really hoping to read this season.
Hosted by: The Broke and the Bookish
1. Blue Lilly, Lilly Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
I have been trying to get to this one forever, but haven't found the time yet. Hopefully I can get to it before the fourth book is released!
2. These Vicious Masks by Kelly Zekas and Tarun Shanker
I just picked this one up the other day and I think it will be a really fun and fast read. It's advertised as a mix of x-men and Jane Austen, which I'm all about.
3. A Tyranny of Petticoats Edited by Jessica Spotswood
I just picked this one up the other day as well. I have been waiting for this one to come out. It's a short story collection where all the stories involve women heroines in historical settings. There are some really great authors in here and I can't wait to pick this one up.
4. The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy
I treated myself to this one for my birthday and I'm excited to get to it. I think it's going to be a quick and entertaining read.
5. The Heat of the Day by Elizabeth Bowen
This is one of my Women's Lit. Classic's Club picks. I think I am really going to enjoy Bowen's works once I get into them, and I want to start ASAP.
6. A Study in Charlotte by
I have this one out from the library right now and I'm hoping I can get to it before it has to go back.
7. Silly Novels by Lady Novelists by George Elliot
This essay is also on my Women's Lit list. I'm interested to get into this one because I'm not sure what stance Elliot is going to take on the women novelist of her time.
8. The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
Of course I waiting right alongside the rest of the world for this one to come out. Love that cover!
9. Bletchley Park Research
Still Reading and organizing research on my women codebreakers paper. I'm hoping to outline it today, right after this post which I'm using as a procrastination technique.
10. One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams Garcia
This is the last novel I will be reading this semester for school and it's a middle grade so I'm looking forward to it. I have never read it, but it has earned tons of awards and praise.
What are you reading right now? What's on your TBR? I'm so out of the loop because of the small amount of blogging I've been doing; fill me in!
