Books at the top of my TBR for winter
Winter is my favorite season for reading. I live in the Midwest and it gets pretty cold, so it's easy to cuddle up in a blanket with a book and read for hours without feeling guilty. Like a lot of people, I tend to gravitate toward larger tomes around this time of year. Below is a list of books that are on the top of my TBR for winter.
1. How To Read The Air/ Dinaw Mengestu: I've had my eye on this one for awhile and I found it a couple of weeks ago at Half Price Books. It follows two generations of Ethiopians living in America.
2. The Art of Feilding/ Chad Harbach: This was among one of the many books I received for my birthday. Everyone seems to love it, and I plan on picking it up this winter.
3. Alias Grace/ Margaret Atwood: This has been dubbed the most satisfying of Atwood's work since The Handmaid's Tale. I'm pretty pumped for this one.
4. A Man Without a Country/ Kurt Vonnegut: A collection of essays, A Man Without a Country is Vonnegut's last published work.
5. In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin/ Erik Larson: Another book that I received for my birthday, it chronicles the life of William Dodd. It's already rumored that Tom Hanks plans to turn it into a movie.
6. Native Son/ Richard Wright: I've had this on my TBR for about a year - it's one of those classics I've always wanted to read but haven't yet.
7. Love in the Time of Cholera/ Gabriel Garcia Marquez: I read Memories of My Melancholy Whores awhile back and liked it a lot. Cholera is the next one I'd like to tackle since I read this Reading Pathways via BookRiot.
8. A Garden of Earthly Delights/ Joyce Carol Oates: I picked this one up at Half Price Books last week, when I was smack in the middle of them and loving it. A Garden of Earthly Delights is the first book in the Oates' Wonderland Quartet.
9. 11/22/63/ Stephen King: So I don't actually own this one yet, but I would like to soon. At nearly 1,000 pages it's a pretty fat one, but the premise is just so tempting.
10. The Remains of the Day/ Kzauo Ishiguro: I've been saving this one for a time when I want to read something a little slower. I've heard it's amazing, and I don't want to pick it up until I'm ready to savor it.
