Caught My Eye 4.4.10

Some recently added books to my TBR list:

The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon by David Grann (Nonfiction)

The story of the 1925 expedition to find an Amazon civilization that may never have really existed.  The two explorers did not return, but many after him have gone in to search for the city and for clues as to where the explorers disappeared.  The author, Grann, takes his own journey into the Amazon in search for answers.  Also heard this may be adapted into movie form.

The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science by Norman Doigde MD (Nonfiction)

I saw a review of this one over at Books I Done Read, and since she loved it, and I am science/medicine minded, I think I’d love it as well.

The Tale of Halcyon Crane by Wendy Webb (Fiction)

Got this suggestion from my BookPage daily book suggestion newsletter.  It’s a Gothic ghost story with a female protagonist.  I’ve been really drawn to horror stories lately.
