Our TBR lists have grown! Here’s what we’ve added recently:
Britt-Marie was Here by Fredrik Backman. After Joli’s rave review, I had to add this to my list! Hoping to read this next.
This Is Where You Belong: The Art and Science of Loving the Place You Live by Melody Warnick. A former professor of mine posted a review of this on Facebook. I moved to Minneapolis almost exactly a year ago and am still trying to figure out how to make this place my city.
While I was on vacation, I came across the most amazing used bookstore I’ve EVER seen in Kalispell, Montana. There were books on shelves, books in stacks, books in totes…books from floor to ceiling!! How did I manage to not take a picture?? I’m not exactly sure. Somehow, my husband and I came away with only 5 books out of it all (4 of them were mine), for a total of $20. My husband’s pick was Coyote Blue by Christopher Moore, his favorite author. My 4 books are all ones I haven’t read, so naturally, they’re going on my TBR list! They are:
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez
The Song of the Lark by Willa Cather
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube: Chasing Fear and Finding Home in the Great White North by Blair Braverman – This was in Magers and Quinn’s latest eNewsletter. Considering I am working with 37 sled dogs this summer and learning a lot about dogsledding and dogsled races I thought this would be a good read to add to my list.
Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods by Sandor Ellix Katz – I’ve had a growing interest in fermentation and have always wanted to read this. A friend gave me a gift for my favorite bookstore as a going away gift in May and I finally picked this up! I can’t wait to take my fermenting skills to the next level when I return home.
Salt by Mark Kurlansky – A friend of mine recently raved about this non-fiction book, making this the second book-loving friend to recommend it. So, I really should just get on with it and add it to my TBR list. There’s nothing like some good ol’ fashioned cultural history!
The Turn of the Screw by Henry James – I have a copy of this novella, and I have been craving some psychological / supernatural horror. The Turn of the Screw is supposedly one of the classics of gothic horror, so it’s high time I read it.
