TTT: Will I LOVE these books on my TBR?

Top Ten Tuesday: 
(Love Freebie) Will I Love These Books On My To-Be-Read (TBR) List? I hope so!

I did this same prompt two years ago. (Link here.) I just looked back and I'm pleased to say of the seven I managed to read of the ten listed, I did love or at least like them all.

Here's my new batch of TBR books for 2024:

💚Transcendent Kingdom by Yaa Gyasi
This book has been on my TBR since Oct. 20, 2020.

💙The Song of Achilles by Madeleine Miller
I loved her book Circe now want to read this. On TBR since Nov. 5, 2022.

💛The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea
The book was a gift. I must read it! On TBR since June 1, 2022.

💜The Rabbit Hutch by Tess Gunty
A National Book Award winner and a book club selection, I know I will get to this one soon. On the TBR since Jan. 28, 2023.

💖The Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich
I added this book to my TBR recently because I learned it is the first in a series of indigenous justice. I read the 2nd and 3rd books in the series without realizing there was a first book.  

💗Lady Tan's Circle of Women by Lisa See
Another recent addition to my TBR and an upcoming book club selection.

💚The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald
I'd never even heard of this book before it was selected for an upcoming book club, even though it was published years ago.

💙Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
This book has been on and off my TBR for the past ten years. I wanted to read it, then I didn't. Back and forth. In January 2024 I made it my 'One Big Book' of the year.

💛The Huntress by Kate Quinn
It's not really fair that to put this book on the list since I am reading it right now. It is 500+ pages and I'm on page 80. So far it hasn't captured my imagination. Will it kick in soon? I hope so.

💝The Known World by Edward P. Jones
This is the last Pulitzer Prize winner of the 21st Century that I haven't read yet. It has been on my TBR since Jan. 18, 2018. Time to check this one off the list!

💜The Book of Joy by the Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu
It's been on my TBR since Dec. 29, 2019.

💗Foster by Claire Keegan
A recent addition to the TBR, Dec. 2023. I've not read anything by this author.
