This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie. So looking over their long list of past top 10s, I’ve gone with “Books I’m Dying to Read”.
So avoiding any book which hasn’t been published yet (I’m sure you can guess which two in particular I really want), and trying to avoid books I’ve talked about wanting to read already, here’s my top 10, in no particular order:
- Uglies by Scott Westerfeld – The first of a number of series on this list, one I’ve heard good things about, and I own it, so let’s see what the fuss is about.
- Gone by Michael Grant – Heard about this series a number of years ago actually, and it prompted me to buy the first two books while I was in Hawaii strangely enough. And they’ve been sitting there since.
- The Complete Novels and Stories about Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Dole – hopefully will happen very soon!
- The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett – I’m really itching to read some more Pratchett, a lot of people rave about him, and the two works of his (shared works) I loved, so I really want to see how he is like on his own. Plus, I hear he uses footnotes and is hilarious, so I’m excited.
- Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker – Only heard about this book a few days ago, but sounds very interesting.
- The October Daye Books by Seanan McGuire (aka Mira Grant) – I have been recommended these a few times after professing how much I liked Mira Grant’s Newsflesh series, so I’m interested to see how her alter-ego compares to the real deal (if any difference at all).
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner – I purposely avoided trying to see too much of any movie trailer, and I largely succeeded at this. So, beyond the fact it involves a deadly maze, and is dystopia, I know nothing more. And again, I’m dying to read it, and see what it is about.
- Catch-22 by Joseph Heller – I’ve been wanting to read this for so long, but just keeps getting pushed off the list. This year!
- The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger – A classic I’ve been recommended to read a few times now
- Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury- Yet another classic sitting on my shelf
As you can see there’s a few series on there, but I’ve put a few classics as well, which I just really would like to read and see what all the fuss is about.
What’s on your list of books you just are dying to read?
