Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on my TBR for Summer 2015
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature of The Broke and the Bookish
This week's theme: Top 10 books on my TBR pile for Summer 2015
I'm currently trying to get through Patricia White's Uninvited: Classical Hollywood Cinema and Lesbian Representability (Theories of Representation and Difference) which I actually started a couple of years ago, but had to put down. It's super dense. At this point, I'm just hoping I can finish it by the end of summer if I keep it to read at home (rather than on the train, where I will likely get distracted and have to re-read some of the denseness). It's good - it's just a lot of words. Nonfiction hurts, you know? In the meantime, here's what I'll be reading elsewhere:
Horoscopes for the Dead, by Billy Collins
The Ecstasy of Influence: Nonfictions, etc. by Jonathan Lethem
Pet Sematary, by Stephen King
The Story of the Animals and Plants that time Has Left Behind, by Richard Fortey
The Accursed, by Joyce Carol Oates
Literature's Most Astute Observer of the Human Heart, ed. by Laurel Ann Nattress
Say Her Name, by Francisco Goldman
Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, by Jennifer Becton
An Accident in August, by Laurence Cossé
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, by Betty Smith
I'm trying to keep a mix of fiction, non-fiction, tribute, poetry, etc.
And along with these, I'm considering a re-read of some favorites -
Persuasion (Austen), The Book of Lost Things (Connolly), and White Noise (DeLillo).
What's everyone else reading this summer?
