Top 10 Tuesdays: Books I hope to read in 2013

For the Top 10 Tuesday Web meme:

In 2012, the only book challenge I managed to complete was the Chunkster Challenge. I came close to finishing the Southern book challenge (three of four) and the British reading challenge (10 of 12), but that was about it. I will do the Chunkster Challenge again in 2013. In 2012, I read nine books of more than 450 pages, so I will commit to the Mor-Book-Ly challenge (eight books, three of more than 750 pages). In line with the Jan. 1 list of books I hope to read in 2013, here are 10 that would qualify for Chunkster. Some also will qualify for a TBR challenge:

Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon
Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
The Museum of Abandoned Secrets by Oskana Zabuzhko
Young Henry of Navarre by Heinrich Mann
2012 Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy (various)
Special Topics in Calamity Physics by Marissa Pessl
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Suzanna Clarke
Wolf Hall by Hillary Mantel
Mountain Standard Time by Paul Horgan
The Complete Novels by Flann O'Brien

I enjoyed Clarke's book! Wolf Hall is a good read, too!
