Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Click on the link for more info and to find out about future topics.
This weeks theme is: Freebie! AKA The Books of 2019 Past and Future…
For this weeks Top Ten Freebie I’ve complied a list of books I’ve enjoyed so far this year and what I‘m looking forward to for the coming months:
Read This Year:
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon – Fantasy, wonderful ladies, talking dragons, magic, adventure; I loved this!
The Woman in the Woods by John Connolly – I was very late to the Charlie Parker series, and this tale served as my introduction and left me wanting more.
A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World by C. A. Fletcher – I’m a fan of post apocalyptic tales and this one stayed in my thoughts long after I finished the book.
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie – The twist! I’ll say no more…
Bone China by Laura Purcell – I loved both The Silent Companions and The Corset, so there was no way that Laura Purcell’s latest offering wouldn’t make my list. A ghostly tale set in Cornwall? Sounds good to me!
The Institute by Stephen King – It’s Stephen King so I’ll definitely going to give this one a try.
A Little Hatred by Joe Abercrombie – I spotted this one on the library catalogue and decided it might be worth a request.
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern – I was a big Night Circus fan, and would actually like to re-read that book to see how much I enjoy it a second time, and this new novel sounds just my cup of tea.
So, have you read any of the books that made my list this week? If so, what did you think of them? See you again next time for another Top Ten Tuesday.
