Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish
September 27: Books on my Fall TBR list:
Ten books for fall? The good folks at the Broke and the Bookish read faster than I, or reader shorter books than I, or both. I will definitely NOT finish all of these before Winter Solstice. In fact, if I’ve even begun Les Mis, I’ll be doing good. Regardless, the next 10 up:
Atlas Shrugged – about one quarter through this. I really like it so far.
Great Expectations – a reread, it’s been a while. I’m looking forward to see if my feelings change. I remember being a little dissatisfied with the ending, which is pretty unusual for Dickens. I have a feeling I may like it better this time.
The Fountainhead – I’ll be pretty fresh off finishing my first Ayn Rand, and already my second. I’m enjoying the first, so looking forward to the second.
The Wings of the Dove – Also fairly fresh off my first Henry James novel, which I didn’t love, so I’m not terribly excited about this one…and I have two more Henry James’ novels coming up.
Les Misérables – Never read it, but I love each and every film version I’ve seen. Looking forward to this one.
Crime and Punishment – My second read of Dostoevsky, looking forward to it.
The Heart of the Matter – First read of Graham Greene, and I’ve no inkling of the plot. Greene had a day job similar to my own…so there’s that.
Appointment in Samarra – Also unfamiliar with John O’Hara or his novel. No expectations.
Vanity Fair – a reread. I loved it first time, though it lags a bit in the middle.
The Golden Bowl – and another Henry James novel.
The Portrait of a Lady – and another, but this from a much earlier period of James’ writing, which I have read is very different from his later writing. Perhaps I will like this more.
