To Be Read next (actually, this post is about my favourite Madonna songs)


It’s Top Ten Tuesday and the topic this week is Ten Books on Your Spring Autumn TBR List. That’s good except that I went to the Madonna concert on Sunday night and I would rather talk about my top ten Madonna songs. So that’s what I’m going to do. I’ll pair them with one of the eleventy-hundred books in my TBR stack. The rationale behind the pairings will be tenuous, to say the least.

10. Hanky Panky / Innocents and Others by Dana Spiotta

9. Open Your Heart / Upstairs at the Party by Linda Grant

8. True Blue / The Ballroom by Anna Hope

7. Rescue Me / Small Acts of Disappearance: Essays on Hunger by Fiona Wright

6. Crazy For You / If I Forget You by Thomas Christopher Greene

5. Into the Groove / The Words to Every Song by Liz Moore

4. Holiday / A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams

3. Like a Virgin / The Girls by Emma Cline

2. Like a Prayer / Thirst by Kerry Hudson

1. Borderline / Only Love Can Break Your Heart by Ed Tarkington

  1. I don’t think I’ve heard of any of the books on your TBR list… but I was in my teens in the 80s so I love Madonna’s early stuff (Holiday, Borderline) as I was a huge fan at the time. I used to LOVE dancing to Into The Groove and Like a Prayer!
