Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke & the Bookish. It’s awesome. Every Tuesday, the lovely ladies over there give us book bloggers wonderful and fun topics to create our lists! Check out what others have posted by going over there! http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com
1. Stephen King
The Shining & Doctor Sleep
I finally gave in and read The Shining and I loved it. Doctor Sleep was just as good. Now I have to get myself another but this amazing author.
2. Rita Leganski
The Silence of Bonaventure Arrow
The first book I read for the She Reads book club and it was amazing!
3. Christina Baker Kline
Another She Reads selection.
4. Matthew Quick
Silver Linings Playbook
I want to reread this- the mark of a very good book!
5. Liane Moriarty
The Husband’s Secret
I can’t wait to read her new one.
6. Samantha Shannon
The Bone Season
I just finished this a few days ago and I am already itching for the next in the series- hurry it up Ms. Shannon!
7. Leo Tolstoy
One of the first books I read in 2013- beautiful.
8. Kathleen Tesaro
The Perfume Collector
I loved the dual narrative.
9. Charlie Lovette
The Bookman’s Tale
I love books about people who love books.
10. Alyson Richman
The Lost Wife
I thought the author did a wonderful job with this story.
I also read The Shining and Doctor sleep this year! So glad you discovered great authors this year. The books in your list that are in my TBR list are The Husband’s Secret, The Bookman’s Tale, Orphan Train 🙂
All of them were wonderful- I hope you get a chance to read them soon!
I love Stephen King and I’ve read tons of his books. My favorites are the older ones, especially The Stand. I also included Matthew Quick for Silver Linings Playbook.
The Stand intimidates me because of it’s size, but I heard it is wonderful. It will be one of my New Year’s resolutions!
If you liked King, you really should try The Stand and The Dark Tower series. They are my favorites by him.
They are on my TBR for the New Year!
Wonderful selection of books!
STEPHEN KING!! Awesome. I love a lot of his work, but among my favorites are his more recent books, Under the Dome (don’t be turned off by the poor-to-mediocre TV version) and 11/22/63. I still need to read The Husband’s Secret and The Bone Season — both are sitting my Kindle, just need time to get to them. 🙂 One of my online book groups has The Bookman’s Tale coming up soon. I wasn’t sure if I was going to join in for that one, but seeing it on your list is making me think twice. Great list!!
Great list! I saw Silver Lining Playbook in the theater twice and really want to read the book now.
Judging entirely on the cover, “The Bookman’s Tale” looks great! I love the vast selection of books here. A really wide variety, which I can appreciate.
I really loved it- hope you get a chance to read it!
I’ve only read the Bone Season, which I really loved. I really need to read a Stephen King novel, it seems like everyone but me has.
The Husband’s Secret is one that keeps being suggested to me. Glad to get a thumbs up from an objective reader.
