Top Ten Tuesday: My Winter TBR

Top Ten Tuesday new

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by Jana at That Artsy Reader Girl.

The rules are simple:

  • Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.
  • Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
  • Add your name to the Linky widget on that day’s post so that everyone can check out other bloggers’ lists.
  • Or if you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment.

This week’s topic is Winter 2018 TBR. I have plenty to choose from and for now (because I could change my mind!) here is my Top Ten List (in no particular order):

The first five are a mix of books on my TBR shelves and library books:

  1. Greenmantle by John Buchan – my Classics Club spin choice
  2. Bitter Lemons of Cyprus by Lawrence Durrell – my book group choice
  3. The Accordionist by Fred Vargas – a library book
  4. The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway – a library book
  5. Wild Fire by Ann Cleeves – from my TBR shelves

  1. What an interesting mix of books you have there, Margaret! Two authors (Cleeves and Vargas) whose work I like very much, and I have a fondness for Greek mythology, so I’ll be interested in what you think of the Fry.

  2. The Old Man and the Sea was one of my O Level books and so consequently I ignored it for decades afterwards, but re-Reading it more recently I realised just what an excellent piece of writing it is. However, I think you have to be nearer our age to appreciate that, rather than an immature teenager.

  3. That’s an interesting selection of books. I also have The Glass Woman and Once Upon a River from NetGalley and am looking forward to reading them both. I would love to read The Brontes, but the length has been putting me off!

  4. Excellent selection… I have Once Upon a River to read too. Will be interested to see what you make of Lawrence Durrell as he’s an author I keep wondering if I should read. Planning to read Greenmantle for my ‘War’ challenge, had forgotten the book existed until you mentioned it a few weeks ago… so thank you.

  5. I’m looking forward to The Lost Man, too, and I’ve read so many glowing reviews of the Setterfield that I’m sorely tempted by it – maybe you’ll be the one to push me over the edge! Enjoy your winter reading!

  6. Ohh, this is a nice selection of books to get to! I hope you enjoy them when you do. And, oh, oh, oh, I am forever swooning over how beautiful the cover art for Once Upon a River is. I am really intrigued by The Brontes. I must get my hands on that!
