My TBR stack is never-ending. Just when I think that I might be done buying books, some new sale happens and I end up buying way too many books! #booknerdproblems am I right? As part of That Artsy Reader Girl’s Top Ten Tuesday meme, I’ve written my own TBR list for the winter. Well, anyway, here is my current TBR list for the winter. At least until I hit the library and decide to add about a million more books to the list.
- Sometimes We Tell The Truth, by Kim Zarins – I just heard about this book the other day and I’m RIDICULOUSLY excited that it exists!!! It’s a contemporary retelling of The Canterbury Tales featuring teens each telling a different, sometimes fantastical story on a bus ride to Washington, DC. It looks fantastic. (Check out Kim Zarins’ site here if you want to know more).
- The Kiss Quotient – I’m hoping that this book fulfils my quirky romance quotient. See what I did there? Did you?
- The Boat People, by Sharon Bala – Not gonna lie. I picked this one because I loved the cover. Also, it seems like a timely topic.
- Damn Fine Story, by Chuck Wendig – Because when is it *not* a good idea to read something that Chuck Wendig wrote? That guy is a hilarious, awesome genius who I sort of, kind of worship. (He also has an equally hilarious blog).
- You Think It, I’ll Say It, by Curtis Sittenfeld – Because short stories are important, too. Don’t let the lame grade nine collection of short tales turn you off this genre!
- Convenience Store Woman, by Sayaka Murata – A book about a strange, alienating person. I like strange books.
- The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice & Virtue, by Mackenzie Lee – YES I know. I KNOW! I should have read this one ages ago. Boarding schools and not-so-gentlemanly gentlemen? YES PLEASE.
- Precious Cargo, by Craig Davidson – A little non-fiction is good for the soul, and since Craig Davidson has written some pretty excellent fiction titles, I think I’ll give this one a whirl. Bonus points for Davidson, because it’s about his time as a school bus driver. This sounds hella cool.
- The Rules of Magic, by Alice Hoffman – I feel like this book will have a lot of the same whimsy and magic that Practical Magic had.
- Spoonbenders, by Daryl Gregory – Because who DOESN’T want to read about a family of psychics?
*Insert about five million, billion other titles here.
