Top Ten Tuesday 2013 Edition, Vol. 1

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new fun Top Ten list topic so we can all get to know one another. I routinely participate in this, but have not for awhile. I'm hoping to be better at my participation, but I say that a lot... so we'll see! The first edition for 2013 is:

Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013

1) Life of Pi - Yann Martel

I have been saying I was going to read this book for so long. It was on one of my challenge lists for last year, and its there again this year as I still haven't read it... It WILL get read this year. And most likely very soon.

2) City of Ashes - Cassandra Clare

I have been dying to get on with this series, and I haven't bought this book yet! I got some Xmas gift certificates, and I am definitely getting this one!

3) The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer - Michelle Hodkin

I wanted to get this before it even came out, and I pre ordered it, and I still haven't touched it! Getting to this one soon I hope!

4) ...Then He Ate My Boy Entrances - Louise Rennison

I love this series, but I seriously feel like I have been trying to finish reading it forever. I think its just time to get through them and be done with it. They are starting to feel like a burden I feel so bad that its taken me so long to read them all.

5) Glory In Death - J.D. Robb

Since this series is such a behemoth, I really need to keep going, or I might as well not bother!

6) The Scarlet Letter - Nathaniel Hawthorne

I started this book sometime this year, and I just couldn't get into it. But this year, I will try again!

7) Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden

I have been meaning to read this since I wanted to see the movie (which I have also held off reading). I am going to get to it this year!

Other than that, I just really want to do a good job on the challenge lists I made. I plan to try really hard to get to all of them (although I don't even know how many I have actually listed there...) I want to do them justice since I put so much work into making them!

  1. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is SO great! I hope you find time to read it! I need to read the rest of the TMI books, too. The Scarlet Letter is a bit dull- I can understand why you had trouble getting into it.

    Happy New Year!

    1. I'm really excited about Mara, I have no idea why I haven't read it yet. I think because the book looks so nice on my shelf, I just end up leaving it there!
      Happy New you to you too!

  2. Hi!
    The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer has been sitting untouched on my bookshelf for a while now. Love The Mortal Instruments! And good luck with The Scarlet Letter, I have bad memories of being forced to read that one in school :)

  3. haha, I tried it, and didn't get into it. I try to read some classics every now and again so I can better understand the modern re-tellings of them that have been coming out!
