Like any self-respecting blogger, I have a TBR pile the size of a small mountain. According to Goodreads, I have 415 books across my to-read shelves. And those are only books that I own. Add the books I want to read that I don’t own, and the books I want to reread (I just cracked Friday Night Lights back open for a reread), and, yeah, small mountain. So for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday I really needed to whittle my list down somehow. I am, then, sticking to country noir.
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana at The Artsy Reader Girl.
I finally read Winter’s Bone, but I remain badly under read when it comes to Daniel Woodrell.
And, believe it or not, there are still books by Ron Rash and Cormac McCarthy that I have not read (including The Road, which isn’t country noir but has been sitting on my shelf waiting to be read for years).
Joe Lansdale doesn’t qualify as one of my favorite authors (yet), but I really need to continue with his Hap & Leonard books so I can watch the TV show (check out my review of Savage Season).
