Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and The Bookish. As the name suggests, posts feature a themed Top Ten list. To join in on the fun, you just need to link back to the creators’ blog where you can also find the topics for the upcoming weeks and post your own list.
Don’t forget to take some time to check out other people’s posts as well!
1. Leaves Of Grass
Not too long ago, I fell in love with a Walt Whitman poem titled When I Heard At The Close Of The Day. Since then I’ve been dying to read the whole collection it’s taken from – Leaves of Grass.
2. Harry Potter & The Cursed Child
I mean, I’m really behind on the trends, huh? I have seen so many different reviews of this already – some loving it, others heavily disliking it, still others having mixed feelings about it – that I can’t wait to find out who I will agree with the most.
3. The Girls
Emma Cline’s novel is another one on my list that I’ve been wanting to read for a rather long time. I just have so many books to read lined up on my goodreads account that it always takes a while for me to finally get to one after I add it.
4. At The Existentialist Café: Freedom, Being and Apricot Cocktails
What can I say? I have kind of a soft spot for Sartre and philosophy in general. And Sarah Bakewell brings Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and others together in this book with a gorgeous cover and an awesome title – weaving together biography and philosophy. Cannot resist.
5. milk and honey
Like Amanda Lovelace in The Princess Saves Herself In this One (review here), Rupi Kaur divided her poetry collection into four different chapters and is described as a journey to healing. If I love this as much as Amanda Lovelace’s work, you can expect to find even more modern poetry on my future TBRs.
6. Ready Player One
Ernest Cline’s debut novel is set in a dystopian future and celebrates pop culture of the 1980s. Some people describe it as a ‘nerd utopia’. I’m intrigued. And I have a feeling this has great potential to become my boyfriend’s new favorite book. 😀
7. The Muse
By now you probably know that I’m a complete sucker for gorgeous covers. This is one of them. But it’s also historical fiction featuring art and mystery, so I’m all on board with Jessie Burton’s second novel.
Actually this should be quite a bit further up on this list. I am so looking forward to this and so far I’ve only heard good things about Yaa Gyasi’s debut novel.
9. Furiously Happy
From what I’ve heard, Jenny Lawson’s tales about her struggles with anxiety and depression are outrageous, at times hilarious, witty and very personal and honest. Considering how many people are dealing with these issues nowadays, I think this might turn out to be a must-read for everyone.
10. The Nest
Ah yes. I don’t think it comes as a big surprise when I say that I was at first attracted to this book because of its cover. There’s also the fact that Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney’s debut novel centers around four adult siblings and features themes like family bonds. Seeing as I have siblings myself, I’m interested.
