Top Ten Tuesday 01.04.11

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's top ten is: Top Ten Books I Resolve To Read in 2011.

  1. Through a Glass Darkly by Kathleen Koen - A classic historical fiction novel that has been on my shelf forever.
  2. Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf- I read To the Lighthouse and A Room of One's Own last year and it only possessed me to read more of Woolf's work.
  3. Les Misérables by Victor Hugo - A book I'm rather afraid of, but want to tackle.
  4. A Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood - After reading Alias Grace last year, I am rather eager to dive into Atwood's work.
  5. The Madwoman in the Attic by Susan M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar - Another book that's been on my shelf for ages.
  6. Gilded Youth by Kate Cambor - Ditto as above.
  7. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke - Another intimating book, but I think I'd get to this one before Les Mis.
  8. According to Jane by Marilyn Brant - I won this back in '09 and should probably get to reading it.
  9. His Excellency by Joseph J. Ellis - A short book about George Washington that I've had for a few years. There's really no excuse as to why I haven't read this.
  10. Both The Silver Chair and The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis - The only Narnia books I have yet to read.

You're in for a treat with Through A Glass Darkly....I haven't heard a person yet who read it and didn't absolutely love it! It's a keeper!

I really want to read A Handmaid's Tale this year as well. I loved Cat's Eye by Atwood! Also should probably get to Mrs. Dalloway since it has been sitting on my shelf unread for an embarrassingly long amount of time.

I'm a huge Narnia fan. Go. Go. Finish the series!

I think I missed the same two Narnia books when reading the series but it was that long ago that I might as well read the full series again; something which I intend to do but I didn't think to put on my TTT post.
I read Mrs Dalloway for my degree and was slightly ambivalent about it, but that's probably because I HAD to read it for class, I hope you enjoy it, and all your other TTT books in 2011 :)

I've only read Lion, Witch and Wardrobe; I really need to get the others read.
