Top Ten Tuesday: (Freebie) The Next Ten Books on My TBR Pile

As always, Top Ten Tuesdays are brought to you by the ladies over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme is a freebie, but when Melissa over at Confessions of an Avid Reader posted hers (Books I Just Had to Buy...But Are Still Sitting on My Shelf) I was inspired. These are the next ten books on my TBR pile (not including any ARCs), not in any exact order:

1. The Woman in Black, by Susan Hill 
A fairly recent purchase with some birthday money.

2. Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, by John le Carré
Impulse buy this past February at Posman Books in GCT, where the books are too expensive, and I don't care.

3. The Haunting of Hill House, by Shirley Jackson
Same purchase as The Woman in Black

4. The Children's Book, by A. S. Byatt
This has been on my shelves longer than any of the rest of these, since last May. It was a birthday gift last year. But it's been on my mind for two years on top of that. Someday, it's gonna get read.

5. Remember How I Love You, by Jerry & Elaine Orbach
Gift from this past Christmas

6. Tristessa, by Jack Kerouac
Same impulse-buying mania at Posman Books as the le Carré.

7. Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star, by Heather Lynn Rigaud
I won this (signed copy) via Addicted to Jane Austen over the Christmas holidays last year. Haven't dug into yet. Hoping to get to it by the end of the summer.

8. Kingdom Keepers III, by Ridley Pearson
Gift from this past Christmas.

9. Jane Austen Made Me Do It, ed. by Laurel Ann Nattress
Another Christmas gift.

10. To Be Queen, by Christy English
Bought this in my final Borders shopping spree last August. Does anyone else miss Borders? I totally miss Borders.

  1. I had Children's Book in my TBR for so long that I finally gave it away. (I have a rule about books I keep for five years without reading....)

    Here's my
    Top Ten Books on Happiness.
    It would make me so happy if you stop by!

  2. Oh, I can feel your pain! I think this need to buy books despite the fact that you'll probably not get to read them anytime soon.. Most bookbloggers will be able to relate. :'D
