I don't participate in Top Ten Tuesday regularly, but I always look forward to seeing my fellow bloggers' responses. When I saw this week's topic over at The Broke and the Bookish, I KNEW I had to jump into the fray. Tis the season to be wishlisting books! Here are 10 from my wishlist.
|Zone One by Colson Whitehead|
Because I'm all about a literary romp through a post-apocalyptic landscape.
|A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness|
Even though I know it's gonna tear me a proverbial emotional "new one."
|State of Wonder by Ann Patchett|
Because I need to make peace with at least ONE Patchett novel. I've had no luck with the others.
|Graveminder by Melissa Marr|
Even though there is potential for cheese here, but still want to try. It looks ridiculously fun and potentially creepy.
|Lost on Planet China by J. Maarten Troost|
Because I have enjoyed other Troost books including The Sex Lives of Cannibals and Getting Stoned with Savages.
|Medium Raw by Anthony Bourdain|
Because Tony is a kitchen god. An inflammatory, sensational, good-writery one.
|There but for the by Ali Smith|
Because Hotel World blew my socks right off and even though I didn't have luck with The Accidental.
|Blue Nights by Joan Didion|
Despite the fact that it's going to make me cry like an idiot.
|I Married You for Happiness by Lily Tuck|
Because it sound freaking amazing and underappreciated. I need a literary underdog.
|The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides|
Because I haven't liked one solitary thing Eugenides has written to this point, but I'm a sucker for an academic novel.
