Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, and feature lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to find bloggers that love the books you do.
Check out their blog for their top ten and lists of other bloggers who participate!
January 13: Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To.
1. All the Light We Cannot See; Anthony Doerr. A story about people, and connections–and the reviews say things like haunting, lyrical, and beautiful.
2. The Book of Strange New Things; Michel Faber. I read a snippet about this story, and it had lovely writing.
3. The Book of Unknown Americans; Cristina Henriquez. A story about immigrants, and the American Dream. Sounds sad, but thoughtful.
4. Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant; Roz Chast. A graphic novel memoir about a crazy family, all things I like.
5. Endsinger; Jay Kristoff. Book three in an amazing Japanese steampunk series, with storm tigers and plenty of action.
6. The Girls at the Kingfisher Club; Genevieve Valentine. A recasting of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, in the era of flappers. Sounds like fun.
7. Invisible Ellen; Shari Shattuck. A woman who’s ignored by everyone finally does something exciting enough to be noticed.
8. I Want it That Way; Ann Aguirre. A romance by an author I adore enough that I’ll try anything by her.
9. Leaving Time; Jodi Picoult. A woman searching for her missing mother–with elephants. It sounds a bit complicated, but interesting.
10. What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions. Randall Munroe. Because sometimes you wonder the strangest things.
