This week’s TTT is actually Ten Books I Plan To Have In My Beach Bag This Summer. I will actually be leaving on a vacation to the US verrrry soon, so making this list was a lot of fun (even though it’s not a beach holiday and there are no beach bags involved). I spend some time preparing my Kindle and these are the books I hope to read during my trip!
Ten Books I Plan To Have In My (Beach) Bag This Summer
- Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Just a few weeks ago this book was on my list of books on my shelf that I will probably never read… and now I just can’t wait to get started haha.
- Battle Royale by Takami Koushun
This book has been on my TBR for such a long time it’s getting embarrassing. It’s also on my TBR Pile Challenge list.
- The Summer I Wasn’t Me by Jessica Verdi
This has been on my TBR for over a year now, since last year’s LGBT Month reading event. It was getting so many good reviews back then that I added it to my TBR right away. Time to finally read it…
- Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin
Miraculously (since I didn’t believe I’d ever read them) these books survived The Great Purge. Watching the frustration about the TV series by people who have read the books, I think it’s time I start. Or rather, continue, since once upon a time I actually started reading the first book…
- The Stories of Ibis by Hiroshi Yamamoto
I have a thing for Japanese sci-fi. Also, it’s ridiculous that I keep telling people about this book (and Angélique over at Maple Books loved it so I can’t stay behind!)
- Affinity by Sarah Waters
Another book that’s on my TBR Pile Challenge list 🙂
- The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
And another one for the TBR Pile Challenge!
- ICO: Castle in the Mist by Miyuki Miyabe
I still haven’t read anything by Miyabe. It’s about time!
- The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster
I only recently added this to my TBR after reading about it in the Queereaders GR group 🙂
I doubt I’ll get around to reading all of them, and I wouldn’t be surprised if I end up picking up an entirely different book. I’m looking forward to it!
