Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly linkup of book bloggers hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week, we're talking about the next books up on our list! These are the next ten books I'm planning to read (book club selections will be added but I don't know what they are yet!).

Inside Edge: I love figure skating and have watched it ever since I was a kid, so even though this book is getting up there in years I'm still looking forward to reading it!

The Rules of Attraction: I honestly don't know that I think I'll like Bret Easton Ellis, but I want to try his work.

All The President's Men: This is a classic that I can't believe I haven't read yet, especially since I work in politics!

The Last Romantics: This came out last month and I won an early reviewer copy...it's gotten rave reviews from some of my trusted recommenders!

Lilah: Revisiting The Red Tent on audio last year reminded me how I much I enjoyed that work of biblical fiction, so I'm hoping this one is also good (though it's obviously from a different author).

The Fever: I've read one of Megan Abbott's midcentury noirs and enjoyed it, but I've heard her contemporary work is really great as well.

The Lowland: I love Jhumpa Lahiri's writing.

Jackaby: This is one of the Amazon publishing books that I've seen get generally very positive reviews...lots of people seem to really like the whole series!

First: Sandra Day O'Connor is a total role model, so this new release biography of her is right up my alley.

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao: I know Junot Diaz is problematic, but I've heard such great things about this book for so long that I do want to read it for myself.


  1. I'm quite curious about The Fever. It sounds intriguing.

    My Top Ten Tuesday post.

    1. I've heard amazing things about Abbott's books about teenage girls!

  2. I think The Fever might be my favorite Megan Abbott! And, I loved The Last Romantics and also added Inside Edge to my audio TBR. I love exposes about the sports world and I'm familiar with Christine Brennan.

    1. Yay! Super looking forward to The Fever and The Last Romantics! Also, I'm about halfway through the Brennan and it has some interesting anecdotes, but the writing quality isn't amazing and there's quite a bit more casual racism and homophobia than I was expecting (I think these were a product of the time, not that Brennan had ill intent, but it's kind of startling)
