Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Game of Thrones series by George RR Martin - Rec'd by my dad, Lucy, Daphne, and various others. I'm desperately keen to read them as I love the TV series; however I don't handle long waits for the next book in a series very well so I'm planning on marathoning near the eventual release of the final book (sometime next decade, probably.)
Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas - I know Debbie, who has really similar taste to me usually, and Stacey, despite not being a big fantasy fan, were both big fans of this, so I should definitely get round to it soon.
Replica by Jack Heath - Not that many people I know seem to have read this but Charlie is a big fan and she has great taste in books!
Everything by David Eddings - Daphne is trying to get me to read more fantasy - I love it but there is SO MUCH I've never read. Eddings is apparently excellent.
Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher - This seemed to be rec'd by EVERYONE at Nineworlds! I have the first, obtained at the brilliant Windsor Firestation book swap, and am moving it up my TBR pile.
The Art of Fielding - I wanted to read this, then didn't, then maybe did so I bought it as it was cheap, then decided perhaps I didn't... but Stacey really likes it and told me I should read it. Plenty of people can sell MG and YA books to me; Stacey is one of the few who can push adult stuff on me to the degree that I feel reasonably confident I'll love it.
Rock War by Robert Muchamore - I had reasons for not reading at one point just after I borrowed it from Debbie, but I should probably get round to it so I can give it her back at some point this year!
Everything by Frances Hardinge - Tom Pollock keeps raving about these to me. Given how brilliant Tom's own books are, that's a good sign!
Any novel by Sarah Rees Brennan - I love her short, The Spy Who Never Grew Up, but have never read any of her novels. Several people, most vociferously Caitlin, tell me I need to rectify this ASAP.
The Rain by Virginia Bergin - I read the first ten pages or so of this yesterday in a bookshop but resisted buying because I have far too many books to read. Talking to Ben and to Imogen Russell Williams yesterday may have convinced me that this was a mistake as it looks brilliant. I don't really do post-apocalyptic, but that voice? Awesome!
