10 Books a Week: To Read

On Monday, I shared my 10 books of faith.

On Tuesday, I shared my favorite poets.

On Thursday, I shared my favorite novels.

Today,

I am sharing my 9 books on my to read list…

Yes, I know there should be 10, but here are my To Reads for a long while.

  1. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen: I put off reading this book to focus on the darker mash-ups for Austen novels. Now, it is time for the real thing.
  2. The Scarlet Pimpernel by The Baroness Orczy: I saw the movie in college. I liked it. I hope the book is better.
  3. Middlemarch by George Eliot: If I finish this book, I deserve a medal.
  4. Grace (Eventually) Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott: I adore everything she writes. Enough said.
  5. Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis: My college professor raved about this trilogy. I only cared about what was on the test. Time to remedy my ignorance.
  6. Confessions by Saint Augustine: The time has come to make peace with this misogynist. Perhaps, reading his whole work will lend a bit more context to his narrow views on women.
  7. A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving: My blogging friend Alise will be thrilled, and I bought it to read too.
  8. Wicked by Gregory Maguire: I love the musical and hoping the book is better. Although, it would be nice to have the musical score play at the appropriate times in said book.
  9. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood: Don’t take away my feminist card just cause I haven’t read this book yet. See it’s on my list (grasps feminist card firmly).
  10. ____________________________?

  1. If you haven’t already read this, I suggest The History of Love by Nicole Krauss. It’s not exactly what you expect with a title like that, but that’s one of te reasons why it’s so good. It’s one of my all-time favorites.
