Top Ten Tuesday ~ Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List

"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish". Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.

  1. The only one I've read from your list is The interpreter of Maladies. Really liked it, have read all of this author's books and enjoyed all of them.

    1. I was about to say that you are one furhter than me, then as I haven't read any of them but then I looked at the list and remembered that the Mary Scott one is a re-read. I recently read another book by Jhumpa Lahiri "The Namesake" and loved it so much that I have to read another one by her.

      I will certainly review all of the books on this list, except for one (Understanding Russia) they are all available in English. Hope there are some good ones among them.

      Have a good day,

  2. I reread your list and realized I'd read The Name of the Rose too, but quite awhile back. Enjoyed it, but remembered thinking it was very long.

    1. Yes, it is a very old novel but a friend moved and sorted out her books and I realized that I had never read it (nor seen the movie), so I thought I'll give it a go. Looking forward to it.

      Have a good weekend,
