Inspired by In My Mailbox and Top Ten Tuesday. Shopping My Shelves is something I plan to do when I don’t get a whole lot of books in the mail. Basically, I talk very briefly about books I already own, but still have not read yet. These are books that I find very appealing, however have yet to have time to read. This week I am talking about 10 adult books, a few chunksters that I am dying to read but don’t quite have time for due to review pile.
1. Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett – Mainly because it’s medieval historical fiction and Showtime has a miniseries based on this book.
3. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson – Because we are showing the movie for a work event and I like to read the book before seeing a movie. Plus the hype has gotten to me.
4. Eleanor of Aquitaine by Alison Weir – Eleanor is one of my favorite historical figures EVER and I am such a history nerd.
5. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas – Count of Monte Cristo captivated me, I bet this would too.
6. The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett – Mainly because everyone says his fantasy is excellent and I want to get into Discworld.
7. The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz – This was a TNBBC group read AND the MC is an LOTR nerd.
8. Snow Flower And The Secret Fan by Lisa See – Historical fiction about footbinding, Chinese women, and friendship
9. The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen – I started the first chapter of this over the summer but then decided it was a winter read. The first chapter was very well written. I can’t wait until it snows and I can bust this out.
10. Aya by Marguerite Aboutet & Clement Oubrerie – This is a graphic novel about a teenage girl in Africa. It’s bound to be awesome. I am reading this for the Dewey 24 Hour Marathon.
Are there any books on your shelf/TBR that you haven’t quite had time to get to yet, but are still super excited to read?
ETA: I absolutely do not mind if you use this idea, just link back, and drop me your link in the comments!!
