Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is pretty self-explanatory. These are all recent additions to my Goodreads to-be-read list. For me, a TBR is more than just the unread books sitting on my shelf, and I actually only own two of the books below (so far). But they all look incredible, and if I saw them in a bookstore, they would definitely come home with me. You might detect a theme, because I’ve been on a major history kick lately, and I love it!
- Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race by Margot Lee Shetterley. I saw the preview for the movie adaptation a few months ago and was so excited about it. When I found out it was a book, it immediately landed on my TBR.
- In the Woods by Tana French. With everyone talking about the newest addition to this series, I really want to start reading the Dublin Murder Squad books. They look really good, and everyone seems to love them.
- Home is
FuckingBurning by Dan Marshall. I picked this one up because it’s a memoir about living with a parent who has cancer, which is something I have experienced. I think it will be interesting to read about a similar experience.
- The Mothers by Brit Bennett. I got a copy of this in last month’s Book of the Month Club box, and have been hearing such amazing things about it. I really want to get to it soon!
- The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace by Lynn Povich. I watched one episode of the Amazon series adaptation and added the book to my list. I just love the story, and want to read more about it. (The series is still totally worth watching if you’re not interested in the book.)
- Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris. This sounds like a fast-paced thriller, in which a “perfect” couple turns out to be not so perfect. Probably not the most original idea, but it intrigues me nonetheless.
- Blame by Simon Mayo. This book is about a society that believes children should pay for the crimes their parents committed. It sounds interesting, and is definitely pretty unique.
- White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America by Nancy Isenberg. Especially after this election season, I think it’s more important than ever to really learn about race in the United States.
- All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation by Rebecca Traister. I think this one’s pretty obvious from the title. As a single woman heading toward 30, I think this will be an enlightening read.
- First Women: The Grace and Power of America’s Modern First Ladies by Kate Anderson Brower. I love history, and one of the things I love reading about is what goes on in the White House, whether it’s about the presidents or the history of the house itself. The first ladies are so fascinating, and I kind of love them all (I even have Warhol’s picture of Jackie Kennedy on my bedroom wall).
