Top 10 Books On My TBR List

The topic this week on Top 10 Tuesday is ‘Top 10 books on your fall TBR list’. I will grab this opportunity to write about the 10 books that I have with me and am eager to read, at the moment.

Here we go:

1. Further Under The Duvet – Marian Keyes

I quite enjoyed reading Marian Keyes’ non-fiction book Under The Duvet, a collection of essays by her, published in various newspapers and magazines. I have been able to get a copy of the sequel, Further Under The Duvet, which seems to be another enjoyable read. Can’t wait to read it!

2. The Hat Shop On The Corner – Marita Conlon-Mc Kenna

I have been wanting to read The Hat Shop On The Corner for quite some time now. I couldn’t find a copy anywhere, but last week I managed to get hold of a Kindle copy.

3. The Not-So-Secret E-mails Of Coco Pinchard – Robert Bryndza

This one was available for free on Kindle a few days ago, and it sounded like super fun. I have downloaded it, and am looking forward to read it now.

4. The Language Of Baklava – Diana Abu-Jaber

I have waited to read this foodie memoir for oh-so-long! It sounded delicious, but I couldn’t find a copy that didn’t cost the earth. Finally, I did, some time ago.

5. Eating India: An Odyssey Into The Food And Culture Of The Land Of Spices – Chitrita Banerji

I have been intrigued by this book ever since I read about it on Smitha’s blog. Another foodie book, yes! I got my hands on a Kindle copy recently, and am eager to go with it.

6. Baking Cakes In Kigali – Gaile Parkin

This book sounds so quaint and interesting, and I have heard loads of good things about it, too. I have had it on my Kindle for quite some time now, and I guess it is time to read it.

7. The Supreme Macaroni Company – Adriana Trigiani

I enjoyed reading the first two books in Adriana Trigiani’s Valentine series – Very Valentine and Brava Valentine. The sweet GB sent me the third book in the series, The Supreme Macaroni Company, some time ago, but I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I have heard that the third book is a let-down, but I so want to find out what happens in the end. So, read it I will, even if it might prove to be a disappointment.

8. When You Look Like Your Passport Photo, It’s Time To Go Home – Erma Bombeck

I loved the sound of this book, the minute I heard about it, and added it to my TBR list. On a lucky day, I found a Kindle version of the book as well. I can’t wait to start reading this one!

9. The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry: Love, Laughter And Tears At The World’s Most Famous Cooking School – Kathleen Flinn

I have had this book with me for ages now, but never read it. I chanced upon it recently, while cleaning up my bookshelf, and was intrigued by it all over it. I think I should read it now, when I am still in the ‘intrigued-by-it’ mode.

10. Busy Woman Seeks Wife – Annie Sanders

I picked up this book for a bargain at a second-hand bookstore recently, because I felt it would make for a fun, light read. Now is the time to read this one, too!

Which books are on your immediate TBR list? Tell me, I’d love to know!

  1. Helloooo! I love your TBR list and my keyboard is covered in some weird drool now. I love the sound of that passport photo one – I HAVE to read it! BTW, I got a loot of about 30 books last week from the awesome secret hideout (that you know of anyways). Wait, will share the titles πŸ™‚

      I didn’t like Watermelon by Marian Keyes. That’s the only book by her that I have read. I didn’t like the look of the other books by her that I picked up – most of them were abandoned half way.

      That said, I think she is much better as a writer in her non-fiction books. I thoroughly enjoyed her collection of essays called Under The Duvet, and am looking forward to reading the sequel Further Under The Duvet.

      Thanks for the comment. Welcome here!

      I do read a lot of foodie books, fiction and non-fiction, these days. The reason is that I find them light and enjoyable reads, without much gore.

      That said, I am also trying to find out other enjoyable reads, chick-lit and otherwise. Do let me know if you have any suggestions like that.
