Here, for the Broke and the Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday, is a list that gives me a chance to put in some of the books I realized I missed when I did my Top 10 Reads of 2014. I’m coming up with way too many titles here, and this list includes books that have already come out but I haven’t gotten around to yet. Apologies – I’m out of time to track down cover pics.
Shadows by Robin McKinley – Robin McKinley is one of my top favorite authors of all time. I’m bringing it home from the library with me tonight, but am still hoping that someone will get it for me for Christmas.
Palace of Spies by Sarah Zettel – Sarah Zettel is another favorite, and my love was kind enough to get me her latest for my birthday. It’s on my list for this month!
Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger – This is the author who made me fall in love with steampunk – I’m still on the hold list at the library.
Winterling and Summerkin by Sarah Prineas – I’ve been wanting to read these since they first came out. Good timing on me just checking them out right now, as it looks like a third book is coming out yet this winter!
Renegade Magic and Stolen Magic by Stephanie Burgis – I had to wait for my library to buy the sequels to Kat, Incorrigible – but I’m starting Renegade Magic on my next lunch break!
Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis – this will be a re-read, working through this seminal series for me and my family with my son. I’m realizing we can listen to the whole series in the time it took us to listen to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Astronaut Academy: Re-entry by Dave Roman – my son and I are reading the first book in this series together right now and loving it!
Jinx’s Magic by Sage Blackwood – Jinx was one of my favorite books this year!
Islands of Chaldea by Diana Wynne Jones – everyone loves Diana Wynne Jones, right?
Black Dog by Rachel Neumeier – I loved The Floating Islands! This looks like a different world, but I loved her writing.
I also have been thinking about rereading the Narnia series. It’s been so long!
We just finished “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” & enjoyed it very much. I hope you have time to read it, too!
