I’m back in time for another Top Ten Tuesday, a feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Woohoo! Well, I’m kind of running out of excuses on why I have been MIA for so many days without notice. The only reason is that I have been trying really hard to get back to reading and reaching my Goodreads Challenge goal. The Goodreads Challenge Update post that I recently did, kind of jolted me into realizing that I am quite a ways off from my goal. And read I did.
Every spare minute I got. Which meant I was not blogging. And then, when my mum, who is a dedicated follower of my blog (thanks, mum!), went back over some of my old posts and told me about a few blunders I made, I realized that it had been a while since I posted anything new. So, I once again reminded myself that as much as the Goodreads Challenge is a goal, it’s also a journey. And it’s one that I had decided to undertake with fellow bloggers who understand and share my love for reading.
So, as I try to slow down, check my panic and inch (rather, crawl) to meet my goals, I present to you my Top Ten list of books on my TBR pile:
Animal Farm by George Orwell
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Motorcycle Diaries by Ernesto “Che” Guevara
Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella
Fried Green Tomatoes by Fannie Flagg
The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
The Tales of Beedle the Bard by JK Rowling
And oh, if any of you have gone through phases of chasing books at the cost of blogging and then being chased by the guilt of not blogging, do drop a comment and let me know I’m not alone!
