Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
The topic of this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is:
Books on my Fall TBR List.
As I am planning on continuing my Norwegian Literature Month also in October, I have some more Norwegian books I would like to read this fall.
- Melancholia by Jon Fosse. I found this at a book market and bought it only because of a quote from a critic printed on the cover: «These two novels, Melancholia I and II, are one of the greatest reading experiences I have ever had». Also, I read another of Jon Fosse’s books earlier this year and I really liked it.
- Den rettferdige by Helene Uri. I’ve read a couple of Uri’s books before, but that’s around 10 and 15 years ago. This one I have had in my shelf for some years, so I though it might be time to read it. I remember I really liked Uri’s writing, so I look forward to reading it.
- The Alberte Trilogy by Cora Sandel. Cora Sandel is a Norwegian writer who I actually don’t know that much about, other than that I have heard of this trilogy, which was written in the 1920’s and 30’s.
I also have some books that is quite dark and I feel is quite suitable to read in the dark fall months.
- The Berlin Noir Trilogy by Philip Kerr. I bought this at a market one month ago after having had it on my TBR since forever. Can’t wait to finally read it.
- Dracula by Bram Stoker. This is a true classic. I’ve had it on my shelf for some time, but I thought it would by best to read it when it’s dark and scary outside, so I guess perhaps November will be a good time.
- Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. I bought this among with a lot of other classics some months ago, and, like Dracula, I have been waiting for the perfect time to read it.
That’s six books. The last four are books that are on my TBR that I am really eager to read, so I hope I will find time for them this fall.
- No Logo by Naomi Klein. I remember my sister read this years ago and recommended it to me. I haven’t thought much about it until I found it at a marked last month. She spoke so highly of it that I feel I should read it.
- Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson. I read a review about this series last week and I just can’t get it out of my mind. I am not the biggest fantasy fan, but this one really appeals to me.
- My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante. I’ve been wanting to read this series for some time now, and when I found the first and second book quite cheap last month I just had to buy it. I really believe these are my sort of books.
- The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante. This is book No. 2 in the Ferrante series. If I like No. 1 I don’t see why I shouldn’t read No. 2 also.
