Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish with the purpose of sharing top ten lists about different topics each week. This week, our lists are compiled of the top ten books we're dying to read. 

1. Great Houses - Nicole Krauss - Ok, it doesn't come out till November and every ARC giveaway I've entered has turned up no results but I still can not wait for the latest Nicole Krauss book. 

2.The Postmistress - Blake - I got this for my birthday and have been meaning to pick it up since 

3.Hunger Games - Collins  - I can't remmber a time in the recent blogging past when a Hunger Games related review hasn't been on my feed. I think I need to see what all the Hypes about. 

4. The Girl Who Played with Fire - Larsson - I read and enjoyed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and want to finish the series. So there.

5. Crime and Punishment -  Dostoyevsky - I've got a thing for old, dead, Russian authors and I think it's time that me and Fyodor sat down for some serious reading. 

6.The Book of Dead Languages -  Goodman - I have loved the two other Goodman novels I've read and had ever intention of marathoning her works but got distracted. The Book of Dead Languages was next on my list.

7. 1984 - Orwell - I just finished Brave New World and am in a bit of a Dystopian phase

8.How Did You Get This Number - Crosley - I ordered this almost two weeks ago and am still waiting for it. I am really excited to read it though so I hope it's worth the wait. 

9.Running With  Scissors - Burroughs - I'm not sure if this counts because I am currently reading it, but I'm enjoying it and excited to finish. 

10. Life is Elsewhere - Kundera - I'm a huge Kundera fan and this is one of the few books of his that I haven't read. I own a copy but I've been saving it for an especially bad and philosophical week.

Postmistress is a fab read.
1984 is one book I keep telling myself I must read.

I finally got to 1984 last year and I am 50 something. Good list.

I'm reading the Great House right now and I'm loving it. I literally squealed with joy when I got my ARC in the mail.
