Time for another Top Ten Tuesday, courtesy of the Broke and the Bookish!
This week’s topic is: Ten Books On My Winter TBR List
1. Parasite by Mira Grant – TODAY! This comes out today and I want it NOW! Expect squealings about sentient tapeworms
2. Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence by Karen Armstrong – recently I listened to a radio interview with Karen Armstrong about this book, and her thesis that almost all religious violence is inherently political. I do not think I will agree with her in this but her viewpoint was fascinating and enticed me to read her newest book.
3. The Strain Trilogy – I have wanted to read this for a while but it did not jump out as high priority. Recently, I picked this up to fill my current book ennui I was feeling after a slough of let downs and emotional abuse (I am looking at you, Anne Rice), and so I’ll finish.
4. Esther: Royal Beauty by Angela Elwell Hunt – After reading Sheba, I am keen to pick up some more bibical historical fiction, and this one recently popped up on NetGalley.
5. The Hot Zone: The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus by Richard Preston – I have wanted to read this book for ages, long before Ebola became a very real pressing concern. Fry and I agreed we would read this, and she’s ahead of me in that!
Well, you guys, for December, I’m going to be reading ALL SANDERSON ALL THE TIME. I hope to at least plug through most of his books by the beginning of the new year.
I also really want to finish-
Symbiont by Mira Grant
The Raven Boys series (Dream Thieves/Blue Lily, Lily Blue)
The Lotus War by Jay Kristoff (Kinslayer/Endsinger)
Otherwise, I don’t really have any reading plans for this winter. :3
