Top Ten Tuesday (2): Top Ten Books On My Spring To-Be-Read list

Well, although there's no spring in my country, I'll assume the Top Ten Tuesday of this week is about books I will read during 20 March to 20 June. So, this is it:

From my Historical Fiction piles:

I'm now in the middle of The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullogh, which I think will only last till end of March.

Gadis Kretek by Ratih Kumala
This is a historical fiction from an Indonesian writer, telling a history of "kretek" cigarettes business in Indonesia long time ago and the stories of people who lived in that era.

The Court of the Lion by Eleanor Cooney & Daniel Altiery
A historical fiction of Tang Dynasty in China. There are 2 series of trilogy but I think I'll read the first book first

Sashenka by Simon Montefiore
From Indonesia, to China, next I'll be heading to Russia with this historical fiction..

Juliet by Anne Fortier
Quite a "sexy" book, hopefully worth reading.

The Help by Kathryn Stockett
I don't know when will the movies be played in my country, hopefully not before I finish with the book.

From my Classics piles:

Until the end of March, I'll be still struggling with L'Assommoir of Emile Zola.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare

Nobody's Boy by Hector Malot

I will read these two books on A Victorian Celebration project:
Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens
Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
