Ciao! And welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!
Top Ten Tuesday is brought to you by The Artsy Ready Girl.
I’ve read a lot of books in one sitting over the years when I had enough time on my hands. For this Top Ten, I’ll be listing books I would’ve like to read in one sitting if I had the time from my TBR. I’m not reading a lot lately, but I’m looking forward to the personal reading marathon I’ve set for next month. Let’s begin…
1. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
I don’t know what this book is about, and I don’t want to know. I just want to read it in one sitting.
2. The Maidens by Alex Michaelides
I’ll love to sit and devour this book in one sitting, but I’m still reading ‘The Silent Patient’ by this author, and since my reading is all over the place lately, I’m certain I won’t be reading this book until year-end or so.
3. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
His books tend to be longer than an ocean bed. I’m not excited to read this book. I just want to read it and get it over with.
4. Bel-Ami by Guy de Maupassant
I once read a short story by Guy, but I didn’t like it. I thought I’ll give him a second chance with this book. I wanted to watch the movie, but when I saw the leading actors – Robert Pattinson and Uma Thurman – I passed, and decided to watch paint dry instead.
5. The Trial of Gilles de Rais by Georges Bataille
Gilles de Rais is “The Original Bluebeard” and is considered to be the first serial killer in recorded history. It’s been a while since I’ve read a True Crime, so I’m looking forward to this one.
6. Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life by Justine Picardie
This book has been on my TBR for tooooo looooonnnngggg!!
7. Agents of Babylon: What the Prophecies of Daniel Tell Us about the End of Days by Dr. David Jeremiah
This book is not really a one-sitting book as I’ll have to take in and absorb the information presented to take notes, but given the time I have – which is not a lot – it’ll be awesome to read it in one go.
8. Antony and Cleopatra by Adrian Goldsworthy
This book… I have so many questions where it concerns Cleopatra’s reign, so I’m hoping that this book can provide answers to some of those questions.
9. Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic
I simply like Mr. Vujicic, and he’s got a good sense of humor! I’ll love to sit down with this book, perhaps after the reading marathon, and read it in one sitting.
10. A Treasury of Foolishly Forgotten Americans by Michael Farquhar
This book is – hopefully – right up my alley! These are the kind of books I tend to get lost in.
