The Next 10 Books In My To Read Pile

As you guys know I am a huuuge bibliophile!  

I love me some books, I love reading them, I love buying them, I love collecting them! 

On the blog I have a special Book label, but there's not as many posts up as I'd like.  On my Youtube channel I have a little Book Club section where I chat about books now and then.  

So I thought I would chat a little about the next 10 books that are on my To Read / To Buy List.  

And they are: 



1 - Robert Rankin - The Japanese Devil Fish Girl and Other Unnatural Attractions
Okay I have to admit this name has totally grabbed me here.  It sounds so instriguing okay?!
2 - F Scott Fitzgerald Penguin Hardback Classics Collection 
This is a bit of a cheating option because I want the whole collection of these beautifully designed books!  7 of F Scott Fitzgerald's books were re-released with these fab art deco inspired covers.  Love them! 

3 - Yaroslav Trofimov - 

The Siege of Mecca: The Forgotten Uprising in Islam's Holiest Shrine

Remember how I study International Relations and Middle East Studies?  Well that means I kinda have a few Middle Eastern related books to read right now that you might not find all that interesting.  And one of them is this- which my bestie / flatmate gave me for my birthday and I am still to read. 

4 - Johnston McCulley - The Mark of Zorro
When I was growing up we had this on video and I would really like to read the book- just out of curiosity more than anything else! 
  
5 - G. Willow Wilson - Alif the Unseen
Another Middle Eastern book I want to read, this is fiction with a bit of fantasy I think! 

6 - Jessie Burton - The Miniaturist
I think right now this is the book cover I see the most on my commute.  Side note- e-reading isn't really a think here in France yet, I only ever see a couple of e-readers but tonnes of normal books.  It's really nice to see that- and it means you can see what is most popular!

7 - Carrie Anne Noble - 

The Mermaid's Sister 

This is a new release which looks like it will be an interesting read! 

8 - Amy Poehler - 

Yes Please 

Yes please for Amy Poehler!  She is amazing and hilarious and I want to read her words. 



9 - James Frey - The Calling (Endgame, Book 1)
This looks like an amazing bit of escapism, definitely in my To Read pile!

10 -  Toni Morrison - Song of Solomon 
This looks like another interesting read, although I must say I sometimes struggle to stay interested in historical novels based in America so hopefully this will keep my interest.  It looks like it should anyway!
