Top Ten Tuesday: Spring TBR List

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, Top Ten Tuesday for this weeks asks for the Top Ten Books on your Spring TBR List.

First, I must say that I'm still digging this whole cross-stitch thing but as Kate @ Midnight Book Girl said in a comment a couple of weeks ago, it's all about balance and it's time to put the sewing down and get my ass back to reading. I'm currently in the middle of the last Harry Potter book and listening to Ready Player One. 

After that, it's on to my Spring TBR List which includes some freaky books, some survival books, some "nice and easy" reads, etc.:

- AWOL on the Appalachian Trail by David Miller
- Trinity by Leon Uris (I promise, Dad, I will get to this soon)
- White Oleander by Janet Fitch
- American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis
- In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (I started it and then put down)
- Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
- Mary, Called Magdalene by Margaret George
- Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
- Defending Jacob by William Landay
- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer

And since it's the season of Lent, may I share my latest Peeps project: Palm Sunday?

I have been wanting to read In Cold Blood for a while. Great list, new follower :-)

Good list, I also want to read American Psycho and Speak.

If I can listen to audiobooks while I work you can listen to Ready Player One while you cross stitch. Win-win!

I have not read anything no your list, but I consider Speak every once in a while and I've heard good things about In Cold Blood.

I hope you get to all your fabulous books! Love your Peeps project!

Very cute on the peeps!

Also, Bret Easton Ellis is a shitty writer. I like the movie American Psycho and I have much love for the movie Less Than Zero- but the books sucked! Plus, he's a huge snobdouche. Like HUGE. Hell, when Gillian Flynn came up with that word she was probably thinking of him!

I'm with Chelsea -- IN COLD BLOOD has been on my TBR list for a long, long time. Not sure why I haven't gotten around to it yet. Oh, and when you finish DEFENDING JACOB, I'd love to hear what you think of the ending. It's an interesting one!
