March 12: Top Ten Books At The TOP Of My Spring 2013 TBR list!

  • The Floating Admiral, by the Detection Club (including Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, G.K. Chesterton, and others). I'm definitely reading this next. I love the idea, first of all, of so many classic detective novelists writing a story together. Plus the three aforementioned authors are all very great writers, and I'll really enjoy reading what they came up with.
  • Coup d'Etat, by Ben Coes. Been meaning to read this for a while--loved Coes's first book. 
  • Killing Floor, by Lee Child. I've been meaning to start the Jack Reacher books for a while, and with the new film that's just more motivation to. 
  • The Casual Vacancy, by J.K. Rowling. Or several other books, really. I mean, sure, I want to read this book, but I'm not sure I'd consider it top on my list. Still, i'm very interested to see how this compares to Harry Potter, and decide for myself whether it's amazing or horrible or just "okay" (it seems like I've seen those three comments a lot in the reviews). 
  • Robopocalypse, by Daniel H. Wilson. I'm currently reading this, actually. I need to have most of it read by Wednesday for my Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror Literature class, but I'll probably end up reading it all tomorrow, as it's really good so far. I'll be making a blog entry on Science Fiction soon, actually, because I haven't ever read anything until this class.
  • The Night Circus, by Emily Morgenstern. Also for my SF/F/H class, but it does sound really interesting, and I look forward to reading it. Plus I need to read more fantasy. 
  • The Last Werewolf, by Glen Duncan. For my SF/F/H class. I'm not going to lie, I was disappointed to find out that this was the book we were reading to cover "horror." But oh well.
  • Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow. For my SF/F/H class. Sounds pretty good. 
  • Human Chain, by Seamus Heaney. I'm really excited for this one. I have to read a poetry book for my poetry creative writing class, and Heaney was recommended to me by BZP Member Tolkien. I've really, really enjoyed reading every poem that I've read so far by him. 
  • Masterpieces: The Best Sciecne Fiction of the Twentieth Century, by Orson Scott Card. This is also for my SF/F/H class, but we won't be reading every single story. I hope, to, though. 
I actually really liked this Top Ten Tuesday, and I look forward to the "top books for Summer" because I actually have a list for that, too (as I don't have school and can focus on reading more). The Spring/Fall is more up-in-the-air and I have much less of an idea of what I'm planning to read, instead just looking at my shelves and going "that one."

Disappointed that The Eye of the World isn't there.

I know, I know. =P I'm not sure if it'll be ever on the top of my TBR list, because there's just so many things, but perhaps over the summer.

Ooooh! I'll be reading Night Circus and Robopocalypse sometime this year! (Hopefully by the summer.) It's cool that you're reading those for class, just so long as that obligation doesn't ruin the books for you.

Yeah, it's really awesome, this class doesn't feel like that at all. Maybe it's just because my professor chose interesting books, but it is a pretty lenient class, too. I think that if I had to spend hours and hours analyzing them I wouldn't enjoy them as much, but we just have (fun) in-class discussions, so it's really enjoyable and allows me to really just enjoy the books. 


Robopocalypse was an amazing book. I absolutely loved it, and I'm sure you will too. I'm really looking forward to the Night Circus, too. It sounds really interesting, and I've been craving to read more fantasy, haha.
