Top Ten Tuesday: Classics I Want to Read

top 10 tuesday

Hello, welcome back to another Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is:

Top Ten Historical Settings You Love/ Ten Historical Settings You’d Love To See or Top Futuristic Books You Love/Ten Futuristic Societies I’d Love To Read in Books – basically this week is all about the past or the future….spin it however you choose!

I wasn’t going to do a TTT this week, because I don’t read nearly enough books set in the past or future to accomplish those themes. But then I remembered: CLASSICS! Most classics are set in the past, and I do have a lot of those on my TBR, so why not? So, here is my list of classics that I want to (eventually) read and that I already own.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Fall TBR

Hello, it’s TUESDAY!!!! Which means it’s Top Ten Tuesday time, a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR, and that is just amazing. So let’s get started…

Top Ten Tuesday

1. The Lunar Chronicles (Marissa Meyer)

   

I already have the first 3 books, Cinder, Scarlet and Cress, and I fully intent to read it next month 😉 .

2. The Selection Series (Kiera Cass)

  

I also already have the first trilogy, The Selection, The Elite and The One (and I might even consider reading The Heir…), so I’ll definitely be reading it this fall.

3. Carry On (Rainbow Rowell)

I’m quite excited to read this one 😀 ! (and I’m secretly hoping for an epilogue or something Cath/Levi related).

4. Everything, Everything (Nicola Yoon)

I’ve read so many wonderful things about this book that it is definitely in my fall TBR.

5. The Improbable Theory of Ana and Zak (Brian Katcher)

I’ve been quite excited about this one lately, and it’s burning a hole in my amazon shopping cart… it will have to come home to me soon… very soon, because it sound so so amazing.

6. Me Before You (Jojo Moyes)

After a chat on twitter, I think that I’ll be reading this book soon, so yeah, it’s on my fall TBR

7. Angelfall (Susan Ee)

I bought this book super cheap for my kindle, and I’m so so excited, because I want to get into this trilogy. This one is reserved for my October trip to South Korea and Japan – the advantaged of an e-reader, right?

8. Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Laini Taylor)

Same as Angelfall, I bought this book for my kindle, because it was so damn cheap and I’ve been wanting it for a long long time. Also, it will be read on the same trip as the one above 😉 .

9. The Princess Bride (William Goldman)

I want to read this one bad! I hope I make it during the fall, otherwise, it will be a winter thing.

10. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Ransom Riggs)

I think that this might be the perfect Halloween book, for some reason. So I might give it a go around then. I do want to read the whole trilogy, but it’s unlikely that I’ll have time for all of it this fall, so I’ll be happy if I manage to read this one.

July Book Haul

Hi! As promised, I’m here today to share with you my July book haul, which obviously includes my shiny new The Mortal Instruments books, with their amazing new covers (the last books just got in today).

Let’s start with The Mortal Instruments, which by the way, I have obviously already read some time ago…

But they are so damn beautiful… look at their spines…

Right?! Right? Gorgeous!

Other series that I got my hands on this month was the Shatter Me trilogy. I had been trying to get them for a while now, but the bookstore usually just had 2 of the 3 books, and I wanted to buy them all at the same time, to make sure their sizes were the same. A couple of weeks ago I went to the bookstore to pick up another book, and there they were, so, obviously, they came home with me. Shatter Me, Unravel Me and Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi.
