Top Ten Tuesday -Books on the TBR

Hi guys!!

I thought with today’s post I would take the opportunity to share my Top Ten eagerly anticipated books that I will be reading next year!

 

Words of Radiance – Brandon Sanderson

Words of Radience

Goodreads

You know when you start a series, and you finish the first book and immediately just want to binge read the rest? Yup. This is one of those for me. Given that Sanderson is only so far as having released the third book (out of ten) of this series, I am going to have to pace myself.

 

The Alloy of Law – Brandon Sanderson

Here is another Sanderson book, and it is the start of the second “trilogy” of the Mistborn series. I’ve been meaning to start these for some time, but you know, there are so many books out there and so little time… *sigh*

 

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime

Goodreads

I was drawn to this book as it is both a classic and famously written from the perspective of an autistic child. Since it is so different from usual, I have to give it a read.

 

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

Goodreads

I am absolutely sure reading this will make me cry, but it’s another classic that I have really wanted to read for some time. I’ll get some tissues to hand.

 

Sword Song – Bernard Cornwell

Sword Song

Goodreads

Sword Song is the fourth book in a series I started this year. As I haven’t read any of the books in this series since June, I think we are overdue the next instalment.

 

The Shining – Stephen King

The Shining

Goodreads

I never thought I would enjoy Stephen King’s writing… and how wrong I was! I’m so ashamed I haven’t picked up any of his books until this year, I feel the need to make up for lost time.

 

The Seventh Scroll – Wilbur Smith

The Seventh Scroll

Goodreads

As much as I really dislike the MC at times, River God was such an enjoyable first instalment that I have to read this soon.

 

Soul Music – Terry Pratchett

Soul Music

Goodreads

I only finished Men At Arms, the book prior to this one in the Discworld series in September but somehow it always feels like an age has passed between me reading Pratchett’s books. They’re almost a guilty pleasure.

 

11.22.63 – Stephen King

11.22.63

Goodreads

I love books that have an element of history in them, so combine this with Stephen King’s amazing writing and you get a very excited me. I also managed to pick up a copy of this in a charity shop in good nick for 50p, so win-win!!

 

Good Omens – Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

Good Omens

Goodreads

I think this has the potential to be absolutely hilarious, so this was a definite addition to the list!!

So that’s the list!!

I’ve tried to keep it brief because if given the opportunity, I really could go on for hours and hours!

What are you looking forward to reading next?

One thought on “Top Ten Tuesday -Books on the TBR

  1. Love your list!! All the Sandersons! I am rereading ‘The Way of Kings’ at the moment and am so in love again. ‘The Shining’ definitely belongs to the best King novels and ‘Soul Music’ is also pretty funny πŸ™‚

    Enjoy all of them!
