Welcome to another round of Top Ten Tuesday - a weekly feature hosted by the girls of The Broke and the Bookish
. Each week you can post a new fun list. Click on the link above if you want to learn more.
This week's list is actually a TBR. The objective is very simple: list ten books you're planning on reading this spring. Which is perfect, because I have big plans for the upcoming two and a half months.
1. The School of Deaths
by Christopher Mannino
Starting off at number one is a request I got from the Book Publicity Services. It's a YA fantasy with what is supposed to be a strong female lead.
2. Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions
by Edwin A. Abbot
This is a classic I've been wanting to get my hands on for a very long time.
3. The rest of the Dance of Dragons series
by Kaitlyn Davis
Got to finish the series before my subscription at Netgalley expires. And also, I'm very excited to dive into that world again.
4. The Silent Steppe
by Mukhamet Shayakhmetov
I've been stalling with this book for too long. Plus, it will be the perfect read for the 1000th year anniversary of my hometown, Almaty.
5. Hurricane Moon
by Alexis Glynn Latner
Requested this at Netgalley, because of the pretty cover.
6. Who Goes There ?
by John W. Campbell Jr.
I hated this book. Why would I want to re-read it? Well, maybe I missed something the first time around. Or maybe I'm planning something awesome for the review. We'll see.
7. Wuthering Heights
by Emily Brontë
Kate Bush brought me here.
8. The Vanishing Velázquez
by Laura Cumming
Another Netgalley request. I like biographies, and Velázquez is one of the best artists, period.
9. A graphic novel of my choosing
Last week I read an amazing graphic novel, called The Ukranian and Russian Notebooks, which also happened to be my first venture in the genre. There will be more...
10. Some good old sci fi classic
It will most likely be one of the following three: Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury or Clifford D. Simak.
Okay, so this is a preliminary list, and I don't have any ambitions of reading all of these books this spring. But I want to read as many books as possible (notice the new tagline?) and share my thoughts on them with all of you. Because I love doing this.
Let's just call this list a blueprint, shall we?
