Caught My Eye Week of 1/4/10

Added some new books to my TBR list:


Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier

I’ve been seeing buzz about this book all over the place, including BookPage and A Girl Walks into a Bookstore.  Looks to be about Victorian-women fossil hunters.  Of all things.

I never read The Girl with a Pearl Earring, but maybe if I like this one I’ll go pick it up too.



The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart has been on the bottom of my TBR list for sometime, and I was about to remove it until I was re-inspired by a review over at Trish’s Reading Nook.  Looks to be the story of the transformation of a teen girl and a humorous secret society.  And it is getting some rave reviews.



Handle with Care by Jodi Picoult was recently read by my good buddy Michelle, and while she was disappointed in the ending, a story about a osteogenesis imperfecta is interesting enough to try despite a poor ending.

    I’ve got The Girl with the Pearl Earring, you may borrow it. And let me tell you how excited I was to be able to tell you about a book you hadn’t read yet. It doesn’t happen often!
