I'm actually more of a backlist reader than I am a new book reader; I like books that have proved themselves over time.
Here are some of the backlist books I'm very interested in reading. These are all books that have been moved from the Kinda-Want-to-Read stacks in the bedroom to Wanna-Read stacks in the closet to the Gonna-Read-Soon stacks that lie next to my bed.
The Night Circus
Salt to the Sea
Edith Hamilton's Mythology
Jon Kabat-Zinn's Wherever You Go, There You Are
The Gates of the Alamo by Stephen Harrigan
The Night Lives On by Walter Lord (Titanic sequel)
The Desert Fathers: Sayings of the Early Christian Monks
A View of the Harbor by Elizabeth Taylor
Jane Gardam's Queen of the Tambourine
That's not even including all the YA fantasy novels I haven't read yet...City of Bones...Cinder...The Elite...Before I Fall...or the Classics Club books....
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Each Tuesday That Artsy Reader Girl assigns a topic and then post her top ten list that fits that topic. You’re more than welcome to join her and create your own top ten (or 2, 5, 20, etc.) list as well. Feel free to put a unique spin on the topic to make it work for you! Please link back to That Artsy Reader Girl in your own post so that others know where to find more information.
