As introduced yesterday, here is the second half of our Mt. TBR challenge with picks from the rest of our group.
Broken Nation: Australians in the Great War by Joan Beaumont
My Dad lent me this and I always feel bad if I haven’t returned books read. I am really interested in this though as it is really pertinent to my PhD application so I need to get it read.
Reading Like a Writer: A Guide for People Who Love Books and for Those Who Want to Write Them by Francine Prose
I started this book when I first bought it, years ago, but put it down and haven’t picked it up since. It’s about time I got it finished (although it has been so long that I will need to restart it)
The 2 1/2 Pillars of Wisdom by Alexander McCall Smith
Another ‘borrowed’ book, this time from my sister-in-law. She and I don’t necessarily have the same tastes, but I do like to read what she’s recommended. This is apparently and old one but a good one.
The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason by Sam Harris
I think this book has been number 1 on my TBR for years. I think I added it back in 2008. I have pulled it out to read for challenges, then put it away again, then brought it out again. Just read it already!
5 of the six books I plan to read over the next six months are earmarked to read during my upcoming trip to Europe this Easter – almost 20 hours of flying – 40 if you count the return trip! It is very hard resisting them – but less than 8 weeks and they’re all mine!
A Ghoul’s Guide to Love and Murder by Victoria Laurie – I am broken hearted that this book is the last book in the series. Victoria Laurie never lets me down with her witty and scary mysteries. I know I be laughing my head off as I read this 🙂
An Ordinary Epidemic by Amanda Hickie – not a holiday read, will be reading this in February for a reading challenge. An Australian author and set in Sydney Australia this looks at one family and how they protect themselves against an epidemic that is killing thousands.
Shatterglass: I’m still working on my Tamora Pierce readthrough and this is next up. I’m excited to see what Tris has been up to and finish off the Circle Opens quartet.
Rebel Queen: I always like a good historical and will be reading this for an event on the blog.
Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded: I picked this up at a Borders closing sale. In 2010.
The Winner’s Crime: Something about the first book just captured me and I loved it. The final book is out soon and I’d like to get caught up.
The Providence of Fire: I’ve talked much more about reading this book instead of actually reading it. I’d like to fix that.
What Mt. TBR books are you planning on reading?
