TOP TEN TUESDAY: Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read In 2013

Happy New Year! It's always great to start the year off with a goal - here's a bookish goal of ten books I resolve to read in 2013, the topic for today's Top Ten Tuesday. The Broke and the Bookish host this weekly meme.

Top Ten Books I Resolve to Read in 2013

1. Pardonable Lies by Jacqueline Winspear
 The third Maisie Dobbs book

2. Molokai by Alan Brennert
This got rave reviews a few years ago on the blogosphere; I really want to get this read

3. Skippy Dies by Paul Murray
Irish novel, Booker nominated

4. Miss Hargreaves by Frank Baker
 Bloomsbury edition that looks adorable

5. Love's Shadow by Ada Leverson
Final Bloomsbury edition from the original set published

6. The Calculus Diaries by Jennifer Ouellette
 Who doesn't love calculus?

7. Small Island by Andrea Levy
Orange winner 

8. The Colour by Rose Tremain
Another Orange book I've had for a while

9. Birdman by Mo Hayder
New series recommended by SuziQOregon

10. Duma Key by Stephen King
I meant to read it all last year


  1. I've read a few of these: #1, #2, and #9. And, I want to read #3, but it didn't make my HOPEFULS: 2013 list.

  2. That is a great list, Elizabeth. I loved Moloka'i when I read it, and hope you will too.

    I really liked the one Mo Hayder book I've read (Devil of Nanking) and would like to read more by the author.

    Enjoy your books and have a great New Year!

  3. Oops, lost a few comments!

  4. The Colour was good. I want to read Skippy Dies as well.

  5. Looks like a great list of reads! Molaka'i is on my list as well and I'm adding Small Island right now!
    Thanks so much for stopping by my new blog. I hope to get out to visit you much more often this year!

  6. # 10 is very good, I have #9 and #1 on my shelf to read. Fun list, I hope you get to them all this year. I like this idea, I might borrow it for myself this year. Good idea for goals!

  8. I plan on reading some Stephen King this year too! And may I just say that Moloka'i is an AMAZING book! I read it pre-blogging and still remember it!
