Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR

I'm linking up with The Broke and the Bookish for another Top Ten Tuesday.

This week's topic is books we plan to read this spring. Seeing as how I'm trying to get through some long books this year and a lot of classics (which can be slow reading), I'm not sure it's realistic that I'll get through all ten of these before summer, but these are at least the next ten books on my to-read list that I'd like to read!

1. Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
This is one of the books that has been on my to-read list the longest. Time to pick it up!

2. Cards on the Table by Agatha Christie
I'm still working my way through the Hercule Poirot books. I have this one ready to go on audio when I finally finish The Brothers Karamazov.

3. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The other Dostoyevsky I'm trying to read this year!

4. The Diving Bell and the Butterfly by Jean-Dominique Bauby
This one's also been on my to-read list for a while, and at under 200 pages it would make a good break from the super-long books I'm reading.

5. Dune by Frank Herbert
This is another from the books that have been on my to-read list the longest. Wherever there are classics that are also sci-fi, they tend to have fallen to the bottom of the pack for me.

6. If on a winter's night a traveler by Italo Calvino
I enjoyed Invisible Cities, and this sounds equally creative and fun.

7. Kindred by Octavia Butler
I keep seeing this recommended over and over. It's time I finally read it.

8. The Stand by Stephen King
I've never read any Stephen King as I don't do well with horror, but I've heard this is one that's worth reading regardless. It's also one of my 1000+ page reads for the year.

9. The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
I've actually read quite a bit of Hemingway despite not being a huge fan (A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Old Man and the Sea, A Moveable Feast), and yet I've missed this one classic read.

10. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas
Another long classic I'm going to tackle this year!

Which will you be reading this spring?
