Bout of Books Challenge #1 – The TBR Pile Mini Challenge

Ellie from Musings of a Bookshop Girl is hosting one of today’s challenges and because it requires people making lists, naturally I’m in.

The Questions:

1.  Which 5 books are at the top of your TBR pile at this moment?

2.  If I gave you a wad of cash and sent you into a bookshop right now, which 5 books would you buy to add to the stack?

My Answers:

The five books on top of my TBR list change constantly as new books are published or I read reviews of older books that make me all the more giddy about finally reading them. So this is a very momentary view of my TBR list. The current Top 5 are…

  1. Mark Helprin – Winter’s Tale
  2. Terry Pratchett – Witches Abroad
  3. Nalo Hopkinson – Sister Mine or Brown Girl in the Ring
  4. Jean-Christophe Valtat – Aurorarama
  5. John Crowley – Little, Big

Now if you send me into a bookstore, equipped with enough cash to go crazy, these would be the books I’d pick up first:

  1. Jeff Vandermeer – Wonderbook
  2. Nahoko Uehashi – Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit
  3. Hiromi Goto – Half World
  4. Maria M. Tatar – The Annotated Classic Fairy Tales
  5. Terry Pratchett – A Blink of the Screen
