Well, you know there will be many more, but let's just keep it at ten for now.
Top Ten Tuesday is the weekly meme hosted by the gals at THE BROKE AND THE BOOKISH. Each week there's a new topic and new lists. Don't forget to check in and see what other Top Ten Books other bloggers are talking about today.
1) 11/22/63 by Stephen King
I'll probably be reading this next, since its sitting here glaring at me. A time traveler tries to stop the Kennedy assassination. It's gotten great reviews and though I'm not a real King fan, I couldn't resist.
2) WICKED AUTUMN by G.M. Malliet
The first in a cozy new series featuring Max Tudor, the Vicar of St. Edwold. I love a good mystery set in an English village. I am really looking forward to this one.
3) DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY by P.D. James
No more need be said. I am anxious to see what James does with Austen's masterpiece.
4) REAMDE by Neal Stephenson
I was lucky enough to win a copy of Stephenson's new book, but I would have picked it up at the library regardless. I loved Stephenson's CRYPTONOMICON and I'm hoping this new book about a tech entrepreneur caught up in his own online war game, will be something equally wonderful.
5) COLD VENGEANCE by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
Eccentric FBI agent, Pendergast, is devastated by the death of his wife, especially since he's found out she was murdered. Now he is out for revenge. A quest that will take him from Scotland, to NYC to Louisiana and will unearth deadly secrets he could never have imagined.
6) THE LONG NIGHT William L. Shirer and the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by Steve Wick
I have this near the top of my tottering pile of TBR books. Shirer was one of the great reporters working in Berlin at the beginning of WWII. His judgement, wisdom and reporting skills were legendary. I read his masterpiece, THE RISE AND FALL OF THE THIRD REICH many years ago, and I was happy to see this new book about Shirer's reporting work.
The following four books are on my Official Christmas Wish List.
7) CATHERINE THE GREAT Portrait of A Woman by Robert K. Massie
I've never read any of Massie's work, but I know his reputation as a great biographer. I've always been intrigued by this woman, Catherine, Empress of Russia. I think this will be a great read by a writer who, at 82 years of age, is still going strong.
8) IN THE GARDEN OF BEASTS by Erik Larson
An American family in Hitler's Berlin. Larson, author of the THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY, a fabulous read, now tells the story of a naive family's cruel awakening to the evil spreading throughout Germany and Europe.
9) THE GREATER JOURNEY Americans in Paris by David McCullough
I've read a few snippets and am dying to read more.
10) THE AFFAIR by Lee Child
The very latest entry in the rock 'em, sock 'em, Jack Reacher series. If you love great thrillers, you will love Lee Child's work.
