It's Top 10 Tuesday (hosted at The Broke and the Bookish) and the topic is hilarious: Top 10 Books I Just HAD to Buy...But Are Still Sitting on My Bookshelf. I hardly buy books (all library all the way), but I'm still guilty as charged. Whoops. Most of the books on my list would actually be ARCs, but that's like looking a gift horse in the mouth to show to you...so here are the rest:
Pretty in Plaid by Jen Lancaster:
Have you read her blog? Love it! Surely her books are just as good.
Yahoo! Style Guide:
'Cause I'm a copy editor nerd, and that's the way I roll. Yes, I will eventually sit down and read this cover-to-cover.
Gluten-Free Girl by Shauna James Ahern:
I've embraced the lifestyle, but now I need to read the literature.
Wit's End by Karen Joy Fowler:
My last attempt at a grownup book before I embraced my YA side full-time.
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson:
Shhh don't tell Laurie.
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation Volume I: The Pox Party by M. T. Anderson:
Has anyone read this? Thoughts?
Sense & Sensibility and Sea Monster:
A gift from my hubby, who knows I love all things Austen, or Austen-ish.
OMG yes I haven't read this Jane Austen novel, despite my claims in the above sentence. This must be rectified.
Citizen Girl by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus:
It's about finding a new job! And I got it while looking for a new job—hit too close to home at the time!
Sooo, you'll notice a lot of these are adult books. Someday I'll grow up and read 'em. I swear.
