TOP TEN TUESDAY: Books I Would Read in One Sitting (if I had the time)

Yes. I know it’s Wednesday. Yesterday was Tuesday.

I’m still doing the Tuesday book meme.

I regularly forget about the great Top Ten Tuesday topics at That Artsy Reader Girl. The site is a treasure trove of topics for book bloggers to discuss.

I keep meaning to read books in one sitting but haven’t quite succeeded. I have a lot going on these days.

If I had a huge block of time and the necessary focus, these are the books I would prioritize.

Hamnet by Maggie O’Farrell

National Bestseller Hamnet: A Novel of the Plague by Maggie O'Farrell

Plague novel about Shakespeare’s family?

Heck, I’d read that!

I mean, I bought it, so…logically it follows that I would read it!

That’s what one does with books they buy, surely!

I Think I Love You by Auriane Desombre

Sapphic enemies-to-lovers romance based on Much Ado About Nothing.

I’m a goner.

Meet Cute Club by Jack Harbon

Slim m/m romance with a pink cover.

IT SEEMS LIKE SOMETHING I COULD READ IN AN AFTERNOON.

AND YET.

HERE WE ARE.

The Crying Book by Heather Christle

I spent at least an hour at Auntie’s Bookstore in Spokane trying to decide which books I couldn’t live without.

I’d finalized my choices, then I saw this book on the New in Paperback table.

It sounds like the kind of squishy nonfiction fiction I enjoy.

I should have put this in my Crying Book Tag.

Everyone Knows Your Mother Is a Witch by Rivka Galchen

Everyone Knows Your Mother is a Witch: A Novel by Rivka Galchen

I don’t know why I’ve been so enamored with this time period of late.

I am heading to Renn Faire soon; that could be part of it.

I know I’m into this book’s BRIGHT PURPLE COVER.

It’s quite pleasing.

Hola Papi! by John Paul Brammer

Hola Papi!: How to Come Out in a Walmart Parking Lot and other Life Lessons by John Paul Brammer

A series of essays by a gay author!

A healthy smattering of jokes!

A colorful cover!

I expect this will make my Top 10 Favorite Books list this year.

I’m very excited.

This Will Be My Undoing by Morgan Jerkins

This Will Be My Undoing: Living at the Intersection of Black, Female, and Feminist in (White) America by Morgan Jerkins. Image from Amazon.

This book is tantalizingly slim.

I put it on my Seattle Public Library Book Bingo as motivation, I guess.

This summer I will read this, by golly.

Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

Lace cut-out variant cover of Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery

This book STOLE MY HEART when I was but a wee babe.

Anne is my friend and I love her.

The story relaxes me. I would really like to reread it soon.

Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie

Barnes and Noble Collectible Edition of Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie

This is another comfort read of mine that I haven’t read in years.

Neverland might be my favorite fictional universe, brutality and all.

I used to listen to a fantastic audiodrama version of this story.

Man, I miss Neverland a lot! I need to go back!

One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston

It’s been three months since I read this book and I can’t stop thinking about it.

I can’t focus on any of the other books I’m reading – all I want is OLS.

I want to set aside time to reread this beautiful novel.

I need sapphic time travel and found family.

I would also like an egg sandwich.

Specifically, a Su Special.

This is my prospective TBR.

Will I read any of these books in the coming months?

PROBABLY NOT.

I’m in a slump right now. Pray for me.

  1. Morgan Jerkins = absolutely brilliant. Loved that book. Devoured it in a couple days, if I recall.

    Also, now I have to order books from Auntie’s because it seems rude not to now that I know it’s there.
