Top Ten Tuesday: Winter Reading

I *should* be working on any of the many school projects that are crowding my calendar for the next two-and-one-half weeks. Instead, I'm going to join in with The Broke and the Bookish's Top Ten Tuesday and plan my winter reading.

1. The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides. I've already started this one---a library copy that's now about two weeks overdue---and am already enjoying it.

2. Modelland by Tyra Banks. Oh yeah.

3. Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu. I've checked this one out, renewed it until I ran out of renewals, and rechecked it out for the past couple of months.

4. One Day I Will Write About This Place by Binyavanga Wainaina. This book and the above are also part of my Read More Books by Africans project.

5. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie. Another long timer on the to-be-read pile that will come off the pile over winter break.

6. The Magician King by Lev Grossman. I finally finished re-reading The Magicians, so now time for the sequel.

7. A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. I downloaded this one ages ago after reading loads of good review.

8. A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Usually too much hype makes me run the opposite direction (hence why I've never read the Harry Potter books), but I'm willing to give in and try this one.

9. Beauty Queens by Libby Bray. Winter break requires some no-brainer reading.

10. Spoiled by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan. Ditto.
