Top Ten (six actually) Spring TBR (Top Ten Tuesday, March 15, 2016)
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish
I seriously doubt I am going to get to 10 books this Spring; I have some pretty sizeable tomes coming up. I’m currently working my way through one right now. I hope to finish it before the vernal equinox, but there’s a fair chance I won’t, so it’s #1.
1. The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling by Henry Fielding
Liking it, not loving it, getting a bit tired of it, but maybe Fielding will wow me with the ending.
2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Looking forward to it as it will seem a pretty easy read compared with the others, and I loved the only other work I’ve read by Austen: Emma
3. War and Peace by Tolstoy
Looking forward to this too – seriously. I know it’s sort of intimidating, but I liked my other experience with Tolstoy: Anna Karenina , and ya know, it’s War and Peace. It’ll make me a literary 1 percenter.
4. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
A reread. I thought it was brilliant the first time in High School. Curious to see if my perception changes.
This might be as far as I get before summer, on my scheduled Quest reading. I’ll have a few other reads going concurrently though.
5. Flannery O’Connor The Complete Stories
I’m in the middle of this right now, going very slow. I’m undecided. Definitely interesting and some lovely prose.
6. The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens
I definitely won’t finish this spring as it is a 19-month read along. The Pickwick Papers read along
That’ll probably do it, making this Top Six Tuesday.
OK, OK, fussy 'bout da rules? To fill it out to Ten, but I probably won't get to these until Summer.
7. The Ambassadors by Henry James
8. An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser
9. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
10. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
