Top 10 Books on My Winter TBR List:
My TBR list has been overflowing since I started NaNo. Now that I have finally reached the 50K, it’s time to get back into the reading game. I bought some very good books before Borders (RIP) closed and before I left the States, so I am excited to dive into some of those, along with new ones I just HAVE to read.
Born Free by Joy Adamson – I know of Joy Adamson because of the book: A Lion Called Christian, in which Joy and her husband, George, were the ones to rehabilitate Christian. When I found Born Free during the closing sale of Borders, I just had to get it, and now I look forward to reading another one of Joy Adamson’s exciting adventures with lions.
In the Shadow of Man by Jane Goodall – Yes, Jane Goodall is a hero of mine, so when I found this book that talks about her early days when Louis Leaky discovered her and she began her adventures with chimps, I just had to get it! Now, I just have to read it!
Hope for Animals and Their World by Jane Goodall – Yep, another Jane Goodall book, however, this one is about all animals. Jane Goodall talks about the endangered species, the environment and how it’s affecting us all, and positive approaches to protecting animals and our world. This is one I can not wait to read!
Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson – Yes, I have heard that the author fabricated the story, much like another one of my favorite books: A Million Little Pieces, however, I have wanted to read this book for awhile. And if it really isn’t true, then I’ll just read it like it’s an amazing fiction story!
Heat and Light by Mike Wallace – I bought this book because I plan on going into journalism, and Heat and Light is all about “advice for the next generation of journalists”. It actually looks pretty good and informative so I’m excited to read it!
First Comes Love, Then Comes Malaria by Eve Brown Waite – What’s better than a funny travelogue?! I actually just recently found this book and it looks so good and hilarious that I may just bump it up on my TBR list!
Babylon’s Ark by Lawrence Anthony – I know this book is going to bring me to tears, but honestly, I don’t care. This book looks so amazing that I just have to read it! Plus, there are some other books by Lawrence Anthony that I have found which I want to read, so I think I’ll read this one first, and then read his others.
The Year of Living Biblically by A.J. Jacobs – This book looks laugh out funny, but also very informative as the author tries to follow the Bible as literal as possible. Maybe I’ll read this book after I read Babylon’s Ark so I can get some humor in!
The Devil’s Teeth by Susan Casey – This book looks downright scary yet intriguing as I read about the author’s obsession with Great White Sharks. I myself, have a fear of sharks but I have always been intrigued by them and how people would want to be even in close proximity with them. This book could either turn my fear into a positive, or make me even more afraid of those monster-looking-big-ass fish!
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie – OK, OK, I’ll indulge in a little fiction. I have been wanting to read this books for a while now, but have not gotten around to it. I’m hoping to end my winter TBR list with Ms. Christie, one of my favorite, and only, mystery authors!
Don’t worry, it’s not surprising to see only one fiction book on my reading list. I’m a huge non-fiction fan and read fiction only when the book captivates me from the beginning.
So, this is my winter to-be-read list. It’s actually much longer than this, and will probably last until next winter!
