Ten On Tuesday

I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that I’ve got books on the brain right now. After all that crafting for my party how could I not? And, while we’ve done book topics for Ten on Tuesday before, it’s been a while. Add to all of that the approaching longer nights and cozy fires, which are oh-so-conducive for snuggling up with a good book, and you’ll understand why this week’s Ten On Tuesday topic is 10 Books On Your To-Read List.

  1. The Revolution of Every Day by Cari Luna. I’m willing to bet an awful lot of you already have this one your list – Cari is one of US, after all.
  2. Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. I liked Gone Girl so I’m willing to give this one a shot, too.
  3. The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls. Dale and Hannah and I all loved The Glass Castle – a rare thing. If this is half as good it will still be great.
  4. Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. I’ve had several people at the library recommend this one to me.
  5. Blood Harvest by S.J. Bolton. I enjoyed Now You See me very much so I went ahead and added this one.
  6. Visitation Street by Ivy Pochada. Thanks to Mary I now listen to the podcast Literary Disco. This author was featured on one of the recent podcasts and the book sounds great.
  7. Five Days At Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink. I heard about this one on NPR. It’s the only non-fiction title on my list right now.
  8. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. Another one that comes highly recommended. I know both Kym and Margene liked it and that’s good enough for me.
  9. The Orchardist by Amanda Coplin. See what I wrote about #8.
  10. The Curiosity by Stephen Kiernan. I can’t remember where I heard about this one but the plot sounds great.

This was an easy-peasy list to write – all I did was go to my Goodreads account and lift it from my “to-read” list. If you aren’t on Goodreads, why not? It’s like Netflix for books only way better. I expect my list of “to read” books to explode after I read all of your posts today.

    So many books.. . so little time! This is going to be another of those “dangerous” topics, I can tell already. (And I used the words easy-peasy to describe Goodreads today, too! Maybe that should be their new tagline? Goodreads: Easy-Peasy!)

    This is a fabulous list, Carole! I don’t know when I’ll find the time to read all of these. I do have art to do, you know! ????

    I’ve read some of the books on your list and you’re in for a treat, plus we share a few books on our TBR lists. I love finding out what others are reading and to add books to my list. Great topic today!

    LIfe After Life and The Revolution of Every Day are on my Goodreads list too. so many great reads – I can’t wait to see what others have on their lists.

    Just what I needed–more books. Well, actually some of these were already on my list. Jeanette Wells HALF BROKE HORSES is wonderful! It’s a prequel to The Glass Castle. I just finished The Women (about Frank Lloyd Wright’s romances). What a p—k! The end was so,harrowing, I’m almost sorry I read it!

    Love this! I haven’t heard of quite a few of yours. Big car ride ahead and a few days off…hoping to update that Goodreads account I completely ignore!

    Thanks so much, Carole! All of my knitters have been so supportive of the book. It’s like the old knit blog ring is still intact in some ways.

    I hope you enjoy it!

    Here I shall reveal myself as a Philistine. I COULD NOT GET THROUGH Life After Life, although I loved other Atkinson books. And Where’d You Go, Bernadette was billed as very funny, but I found it sad throughout. Haven’t read Cari’s book, yet, but I hope to. For a recommendation, I suggest Monuments Men – not awfully well written but fascinating, and soon to be a movie with George Clooney and Matt Damon.

    I read The Orchardist this spring and enjoyed it. Life After Life is up next for me as it’s the book for my book group next month. It sounds intriguing.

    I’m so glad you’re enjoying Literary Disco (but no Finnegan’s Wake on your TBR?!) like others, highly recommend Half Broke Horses. It’s been fun to read these lists and add a few more books to my TBR – great topic!

    Oh boy! More book titles to entice! Where’d You Go, Bernadette was a lot of silly fun. I read it while taking my girl to college and it was perfect! I don’t have a TBR list. I”m a very capricious reader; I read whatever my mood dictates.
