Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week we are listing our top ten books on our fall to read list.

Since I often have time ordering books on lists like this they will be listed in no particular order because I am simply excited to read all of them.

  1. Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War by Christie Golden. I am a huge Christie Golden fan and also love World of Warcraft from playing the MMO for six years. After pre-ordering this book nearly a year ago I was thrilled to finally have it in my hands last week and can’t wait to set aside some time to read it.
  2. Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. This book has been on my to read list for so long. So I am finally gonna sit down and read it this fall, along with the rest of the books in the series: Streets of Laredo, Dead Man’s Walk and Comanche Moon.
  3. It by Stephen King. I don’t know what’s scarier, the fact that it’s about a clown or the sheer thickness of the novel. Either way I’m looking forward to reading this monster of a book even if it is likely to increase my already high fear of clowns by a few notches.
  4. The Name of The Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. Heard lots of good things about this book and a few friends have recommended it to me. So it’s definitely on the list.
  5. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. Loved the movie and have been wanting to read this one since I first saw it. Really interested to see the differences between book and movie.
  6. Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay. Meant to read this one when it was the monthly pick over at Sword & Laser but obviously that didn’t happen. So I’m gonna put it on my fall to read list so I can enjoy it and finally read the discussions and watch the podcasts.
  7. Fable: Edge of The World by Christie Golden. Oh look another Christie Golden book. I was super excited to have been given a copy of this book to review. I played Fable when it first came out a few years back, though haven’t touched the second game yet, so will be interesting to visit that world again.
  8. Darksiders: The Abomination Vault by Ari Marmell. It should be obvious by now I highly enjoy books written about the world in which video games are set in. I’ll admit I’ve never played Darksiders, but I watched my husband play it enough I feel I have a firm grasp on the world and so should enjoy this book.
  9. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. I don’t normally go for books that are hugely popular, however I am very interested in reading this book. I’m hoping all the excitement that is surrounding it is not simply hype.
  10. The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans. This is another book I’ve been meaning to read since first seeing the movie. So it’s about time I sat down and read it.

As you can see most of the books on my list are not new releases, but let’s face it if I concentrated on new releases all the time I’d never get around to reading the books I’ve been wanting to for months if not years.
