What I Hope to Read This Spring





My usual mishmash of mostly-nonfiction, with some travel, religion, books-about-books, reading. A new Anne Tyler. A new Stewart O'Nan. 

Do you have any of these on your list?

Do you have any suggestions for me?




Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

    1. I first heard about Only in Naples months ago. It feels like I've been waiting and waiting.

  2. The Broken Wheel book is on my list. Have no idea when I'll ever get around to it though. :-)

    1. It certainly looks like a book for us readers.

    2. I was so disappointed in The Readers of Broken Wheel! It seemed trite and I didn't love any of the characters. I hope you find it much better and I would love to know what you think when you're done!

  3. I hope there is some humor in Old Age the Beginner's Guide, but it did catch my attention. Happy Spring. My TTT

  4. Great list! I hope you enjoy The Book Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend. I'm not a big fan of The Taming of the Shrew so I'm not inclined to check out Vinegar Girl but I think it's cool that a number of authors are retelling a number of Shakespeare plays in contemporary novels. Happy reading :)

  5. I enjoyed The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend quite a bit. It's not a very realistic or even flawless novel, but that didn't bother me. I hope you you enjoy it when you read it. I am not too familiar with your other titles (great list, by the way!). Old Age: A Beginner's Guide sounds perfect for me. Haha Anne Tyler's book also looks really good. I hope you enjoy them!

    1. Sometimes you just want to read something that's not realistic or flawless.

  6. Great list! The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend is on my TBR as is Only Naples. I'm really curious about Vinegar Girl. It's been years since I read Anne Tyler but I've always enjoyed her books.

  8. Gah; you always have such interesting books. I feel silly for reading so much YA and mysteries when I see your lists. I haven't heard of a single one of these books (although I went on a huge Anne Tyler binge in college, which means I read everything she wrote up to 1992 or so, and very little since then). I will now go look up every single one on Goodreads, because I really do admire your taste.

  9. I love how varied your list is - you have brilliant choices, and so different from each other, that you're definitely going to have an interesting reading month! :)
