Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish.
This Week’s Theme:
Books Hauled Prior To Blogging
That I’ve Yet To Read
I am of the team that did not own too many books prior to blogging. Instead, I will grace you with my exorbitant purchases from the early days of blogging a la Book Outlet that I still haven’t read because reasons. Shit.
Parallel (Lauren Miller)
Reason for hauling: it was $1.64 Canadian. Okay, but seriously, I think alternate reality premises are fun?
Reason for hauling: jumping on the previous explanation of alternative reality stories, this is sort of to that extreme as well. I was super intrigued to just learn who A was and the big why. Plus. hype!
Incidents in the Life of Markus Paul (David Adams Richards)
Reason for hauling: because I wanted to immerse myself in more Canadian Literature and this book features aboriginal communities.
Reason for hauling: I think most people who finish Proxy (and moderately enjoyed it) may require the follow-up to the cliffhanger of an ending. But while I do want to know more, I’m kind of fine not knowing what happens next too? Derp.
Past the Shallows (Favel Parrett)
Reason for hauling: it’s probably somewhere here and there between exploring more Australian Literature…that’s all I got for a reason.
Reason for hauling: this book explodes with diversity and has an intersex male lead who deals with sexual assault.
The Program (Suzanne Young)
Reason for hauling: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯???
Nil (Lynne Matson)
Reason for hauling: Sounded like Lord of the Flies, ok? But the real reason I hauled this was because of Khanh’s glorious 1-star review.
Archetype (M.D. Waters)
Reason for hauling: so, apparently, Gone Girl meets… wait for it… Handmaid’s Tale — wut??
BASICALLY I SUCK AT READING LAALLALAA.
