Top Ten Tuesday is hosted at The Broke & The Bookish. You can find a list of past and future topics here. This week I am only focusing on books that are already out, so no wishing for unreleased books! But I still have such a lot to long for!
1) Who Does He Think He Is by Emily Kerr
I saw this recently mentioned on Art & Soul and now I just desperately want it. I'm on a self imposed book buying ban at the moment though so who knows when I will actually get it!!
2) Ghost Talkers by Mary Robinette Kowal
I read half of Kowal's Glamourist Histories and really enjoyed it (which reminds me I must finish the series) and this one sounds like something I would enjoy even more. I've heard some great things as well.
3) Crystal Storm by Morgan Rhodes
My brother got me the first four books for Christmas last year and I absolutely loved them. So I am very keen to read this as soon as possible!
4) A New York Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin
I watched this with my brother earlier this year, it's not something either of us would normally watch but we ended up really enjoying it and now I am curious to read the book - although it is absolutely enormous.
5) Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz
This is one of those books that gets so much love and yet I have somehow never read it? It's so frustrating because it's been on my wish list for so long but keeps getting pushed down by newer books. It sounds amazing.
6) As I Descended by Robin Talley
I don't know much about this except that it's a Macbeth retelling? I think. Correct me if I am wrong. But that really intrigues me and I definitely want to know more.
7) Alice by Christina Henry
I feel like I am constantly on the lookout for Alice in Wonderland retellings - it was the first book I ever read and I can never get enough. So this has been on my wish list for a while as well. I've heard it's pretty dark which is interesting because most Wonderland retellings seem to focus on the quirky.
8) A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan
There are dragons. You need more? There are illustrations. Of dragons.
9) Am I Normal Yet by Holly Bourne
I've only read one other book by Holly Bourne but really enjoyed it and I've head amazing things about the Spinster Club series. I believe it is now complete so it would be a great time to dive in.
10) Star Wars: Bloodline by Claudia Gray
I've never read a Star Wars book. I have, however, read books by Claudia Gray and loved them so I am confident in her ability to write an amazing Star Wars book.
