|The Broke and Bookish
To read or not to read, that is the question.
I own all of these books yet I am not sure if I really want to read them. What do you think? Do you think I should read any/all of these books?
1. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. I read the second book in the series, The Year of the Flood, out of order. Now do I go back and read the first?
2. Drift by Rachel Maddow. I am a Maddow fan but I have put this book aside for so long I am not sure if it will be worth the effort.
3. Hate List by Jennifer Brown. Weirdly I lost this book after I bought it for my library so I had to buy a new one out of my own pocket. I found it a year later in a bag in the closet. Now it sits on my bookshelf untouched.
4. Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore. I really liked Fire and Graceling but I am not very interested in attempting this book after so much time.
5. A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. I bought this book for book club then the club decided to NOT read it. Should I read it anyway?
6. Thunderstruck by Erik Larsen. I really enjoyed Larsen's The Devil in the White City. This one sounds like it is nonfiction murder mystery. What's not to like?
7. Bonk: the Curious Coupling of Science and Sex by Mary Roach. I found Roach's book Stiff to be so interesting and surprisingly funny. I didn't like her book Spook at all. This one sounds good but I'm not sure I want to take the time.
8. Cross Roads by Wm. Paul Young. The author of The Shack, which I liked. This book has been languishing on my bedside table for two years.
I'm sure there are other books tucked here or there around the house, so far removed from me that they really aren't on the TBR pile anymore.
