Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish!
This week’s topic is: Ten Books I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read
Bry: I can’t really nail this down to any particular genre, so these are books in general that I really should have read by now. Overall, I haven’t gotten much reading done lately at all, due to surgery, recovery, holidays and then catching up on things. Get it together, girl.
1. Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch: Fry has been saying how great this book is for an extremely long time, and by the sounds of it, it would definitely be something that I’d be into. Yet, for some reason I haven’t gotten my hands on a copy!
2. In the Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss: This is much the same as Lies of Locke Lamora in that its been recommended to me by people who have opinions I trust great enough to have a strong interest in reading it. I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.
3. Dangerous Women by Various Authors: Why wouldn’t I want to read something that both George R.R. Martin and Robin Hobb contributed to!? It sounds fantastic!
Fry: This is going to play out like a lot of my other books, but I really like fantasy. So, here we go. Top Fantasy that I haven’t read yet.
1. The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. I need to finish the Mistborn series first.. I feel like, before I jump into this. It’s in the same world? Maybe? I think? I’m not entirely sure.
2. Pawn of Prophecy by David Eddings. One of those classics that just keeps slipping my mind.
3. Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson. I got somewhere around halfway through this book before stopping. Honestly, it just felt like there were a lot of words and not a lot was happening. I still didn’t have a good grasp on the characters and it was not doing it for me. I’ll have to revisit this later.
4. The Warded Man by Peter V. Brett– I never really had a good grasp on this book series. There’s demons? But also wizards? Is it fantasy based paranormal or just fantasy? Anyway, it still sounds great. I just keep forgetting about it.
5. Prince of Thorns by Mark Lawrence. Seems like standard thievery.
6. The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley. I’ve heard so much good stuff about this. It’s also one of those classic 80’s fantasies.
7. The Emperor’s Blades by Brian Stavely. To be fair, this came out recently, so I’m not super behind on it. Still want to read it at some point.
