Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR (Top Ten Tuesday, March 14, 2017)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish

March 14: Top Ten Books on my Spring TBR - well that's easy enough.

I probably won't finish this before the first day of Spring. Excellent so far.



I loved my other experience with Dostoyevsky (The Brothers Karamazov). Looking forward to this.




No idea what to expect. My first experience with Graham Greene.


And no idea what to expect with this either. (My favorite way to begin a book btw)




Vanity Fair, in case you can't read that. A reread, that I am looking forward to. Loved it the first time.



Ugh...more Henry James. Not excited.



However, I'm a bit more hopeful about this...from his earlier career/style.



I started and DNF years ago. Ready to give it a second chance. I remember it starts rather slow. Someone tell me it is fascinating later.



I enjoyed my one other experience with Evelyn Waugh (Brideshead Revisited), so I am looking forward to this. BTW - Evelyn Waugh is a dude.



And no expectations, first experience with RPW.

  2. I've read Les Miserables twice now, but it's been awhile. Maybe I'll see if there's a really good audio version!

    1. Wow...twice! Even though I'm enjoying it, I doubt I'll ever reread it.

  5. My apologies to: Lisbeth Ekelhof. I accidentally hit "Delete" when I meant to hit "Publish" for your comment. You wrote: Quite an ambitous list. Crime and Punishment is great, as is Vanity Fair. Not as difficult to read as one can imagine. I love Henry James, so no problem there. Graham Greene is also a sure choice, although I have not read that one. Evelyn Waugh I don't find that easy, except for favourite Brideshead Revisited. Good luck!

  6. Lovely reading ahead of you--I absolutely love Vanity Fair, I've read it twice and feel I could read it a few more times at least. I have a copy of All the King's Men--you may inspire me to finally read it.

    Happy reading...except for the James, I just can't read the man.

    1. Thanks Jane. I'll let you know about ATKM. Must be you didn't do this TTT, I couldn't find yours if you did.
