It almost looks like this fellow is crying, doesn't it? I guess he is sad I haven't read A Little Life, though I've had this book for three years. A Little Life is just so big.
I won Strange the Dreamer in a contest a long time ago. The cover is beautiful. I love Laini Taylor. I've heard great things about this story. I'm waiting to be in the mood to read a fantasy.
I was prepared to do anything to get Artisan Sourdough at the library conference last year. Why, then, haven't I read it yet? I want to try out the techniques. It takes time to prepare and bake sourdough bread.
I brought home Breaking Bread: A Baker's Journey Home in 75 Recipes from the Texas Book Festival last year. I need time to try out the recipes.
I don't know why I haven't read The Parker Inheritance.
I love to read books about the sixties. But the Summer of '69 started with a scene of drug use, and that put me off it.
Here sits The Farm. Have I read too many dystopias?
Nonfiction that reads like fiction is one of my favorite genres. Why not The Boys in the Boat? Ugh. Sports.
Why never-have-I-ever read Never Have I Ever? It's easy...I'm a big scared-y cat.
I am a huge fan of the PBS series, The Great American Read. I couldn't wait to get a copy of The Book of Books based on the series. But it's unread. The book wasn't what I was expecting; it's a bit dry, I think.
I have Donna Tartt's first book, The Secret History, on every list of favorite books I ever make. Her second book, though, was a meh experience for me. I've backed away from The Goldfinch for years, afraid of more disappointment. Happily, I am reading it now.
I do solemnly swear to read these books. Soon. Very soon.
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.
