Top Ten Books On My TBR

March 12, 2013 Whitney Top Ten Tuesday 6 Comments

  1. Faithful Place by Tana French: I started this earlier in the year and for whatever reason set it down, I’d like to pick it back up by year’s end.
  2. Broken Harbor by Tana French: to continue my love of the Dublin Murder Squad series
  3. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell: I loved Cranford and The Moorland Cottage and hope to follow with the above soon.
  4. The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald:  I think this has been on my bookshelf for over a year now and after reading The Great Gatsby I want to read it even more. 
  5. Molokai by Alan Brennert:  This just feels like a summer read and I have actually been to the island so even though the book is a work of ficton I think it would be an interesting read.
  6. Mansfield Park by Jane Austen:  I shamefully have not read this Austen book.
  7. Lady Susan by Jane Austen: The same reason as above.
  8. Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh:  Love the Jeremy Irons’ mini-series but haven’t yet read the book.
  9.  Villette by Charlotte Bronte: I loved Jane Eyre but haven’t yet explored her other works.
  10. The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte:  The only Bronte sister who’s works I haven’t read.

  1. Molokai is on my TBR list too – but because I wrote my MA thesis on Leprosy and feel like I ought to read this one! Excellent list – some really great books on there that are now on my TBR list too…. It's always getting longer!

  2. LBC

    There are a few of these that I also want to read. I would like to expand my Bronte reading, and also to continue with Tana French. The only one I've read is Broken Harbor, which was dark and fun to read.

  3. I adore Anne Bronte. She is woefully underrated. Her two novels are quite different, yet the same. I love them both, but Tenant is one of my all-time favourites. I hope you enjoy it.
