Top Ten Books I'm Looking Forward to Reading this Year

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is a freebie! I'm going to go with the top ten books I'm looking forward to reading this year. There were some that I was really looking forward to that I've already read (I'm specifically thinking of Code Name Verity and Mr. Darcy's Diary here) but for the books I have left that I'm hoping to get read this year these are the ones I'm most looking forward to.
So in no particular order....

  1. The Scarlet Pimpernel series by Emmuska Orczy- I've read and re-read The Scarlet Pimpernel but this year I am really looking forward to reading the rest of the series. 
  2. The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery- I've read some rave reviews of this one from fellow Montgomery lovers so I'm excited to read it! 
  3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer- This is going to be the year I read it... and hopefully the rest of the series too! 
  4. The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton- I've read some great things about this book.
  5. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevesky- I was pleasantly surprised by The Brothers Karamazov last year so now I'm excited to read another Dostoevsky book. 
  6. Waverley by Sir Walter Scott- My re-read of Ivanhoe last year really got me interested in reading more of Scott's books so this is next! 
  7. Matilda by Roald Dahl- I'm not sure how I missed this book as a kid as I read many of Dahl's other books but nonetheless I did. This year I'm fixing that! 
  8. Through Gates of Splendor by Elizabeth Elliot- I'm really not sure how I've not read this book by now but I'm reading it this year.
  9. The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert by Rosaria Butterfield- One I've been meaning to read for awhile and my parents got it last year so once my sister is done reading it (that may take awhile) I'm going to read it! 
  10. Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain- I got this in the Broke and Bookish secret santa so I'm excited to read it this year. Multiple people have recommended this book to me before. 

There's a lot of books that I'm looking forward to RE-reading but I decided to limit myself today. :)

  1. ooh, I LOVE your list and how varied it is!! *flails* I loved Matilda. I could seriously do a reread of that. XD And ohhh Cinder?! CINDER IS MAGNIFICANT. And you were wise to wait until all the books are out too, because you won't have to suffer any cliffhangers. ;D
    Here's my TTT!

  2. I've seen several good reviews for Quiet, I kinda wanted to read that one too but then it slipped off my radar. Thanks for reminding me! I hope you get to all these this year!

  4. This is a great list! Crime and Punishment is a big read... it was good but it will take you some time for sure! I love Cinder and the Lunar Chronicles, so I do hope you read that one soon :)

  9. A fellow lover of "The Scarlet Pimpernel"! I really enjoyed that book and I think I need to read the rest of the series too. And one of my extroverted friends keeps telling me I should read "Quiet". Thanks for sharing your list!

  14. So many of us still need to read Cinder, and I love it. Makes me that much more excited to read it because I know I will have people who have just read it as well to talk to about it. This week I did Favorite WWII Books for my Top Ten Tuesday.

  15. I love it when someone posts about some of the classics. Pimpernel -- yes, great, though I didn't even know there were sequels. Lucy Maud Montgomery -- yes, a Canadian classic. Waverly -- I've been interested in reading this one, too, though I haven't gotten around to it. Here's my TTT.
