Top Ten: I Do Solemnly Swear



I know I said I would by light on memes but honestly Top Ten Tuesday is reliably one of my favorites. The bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish really pick great topics which make me think and make me want to go and read and find new blogs to read. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013.

The Book Thief

I have had this on my GoodReads lists since ’09. I have read amazing things about it. Every time I see it one someone’s list I think I have got to read that. OK, this is the year.

Tuck (The King Raven Trilogy)

I read Hood in ’07 and Scarlet in ’09. I have no reason why I have not finished up the trilogy. I loved both of the others, so Tuck in ’13.

House of Leaves

When this was popular it was everywhere. It is still on many “Best of” horror lists. I have checked it out of the library twice and just never picked it up. It is my October read for ’13.

The Poe Shadow: A Novel

I don;t know either. Given my love for Poe and the fact that every list has Poe on it somewhere how have I not read this one.

The Magus

It is classic. I have read bits and pieces but never the whole thing from start to finish. So yes, I will this year.

The Iron Thorn The Iron Codex Book One

I have wanted to read more Caitlin Kittredge and this looks fabulous. Steampunk + Lovecraft + Magic + YA = Yes, Please.

Long Past Stopping: A Memoir

I love memoirs, the stranger, the better. Now if I can just get over the clown cover on this one I think I will really like it.

An Abundance of Katherines Looking for Alaska Paper Towns

After The Fault in Our Stars I must read one more John Green. That is all.

 The Complete Fairy Tales (Oxford World's Classics)

I have read all of Grimm and all of Andersen but I have not read all of Perrault. It is a serious gap in my fairy tale education.

Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter)

So my bestest librarian book bud and I have made an agreement. I said I would read this and she has promised to readAlice.

  1. So The Book Thief made my list too, I am prepared to cry based on what everyone has said about it. House of Leaves is great, it is a book that should be read at least twice (in my opinion) to get the full effect.

    1. That is what I have heard too. I think every year needs at least one good tissue worthy book. 😉

      House has been on my list for so long I really need to work through it.
