Caught My Eye

Well, my TBR list has surpassed 300.  This disgusts me.  But here are the new books I’ve added and am pretty excited to read. . .  probably 2 years from now.

Has anyone else been seeing this book, The Weird Sisters, promoted everywhere?  Sounds interesting though, I think it will make a good book club choice.  And Here’s the Amazon blurb:

There is no problem that a library card can’t solve.
The Andreas family is one of readers. Their father, a renowned Shakespeare professor who speaks almost entirely in verse, has named his three daughters after famous Shakespearean women. When the sisters return to their childhood home, ostensibly to care for their ailing mother, but really to lick their wounds and bury their secrets, they are horrified to find the others there. See, we love each other. We just don’t happen to like each other very much. But the sisters soon discover that everything they’ve been running from-one another, their small hometown, and themselves-might offer more than they ever expected.

The man and I are Vonnegut fans.  He’s just too smart and weird not to be loved.  And coming later this months is a collection of unpublished short stories from Vonnegut’s early writings, called While Mortals Sleep.  Should be an entertaining jaunt.

The Sherlockian by Graham Moore is marketed as “historical suspense” and as a fan of Conan Doyle and Mr. Holmes, this looks like an interesting read.  I like an intelligent mystery, and I look forward to this one.

    The Sherlockian looks too great… and the cover is genious! Thanks!

  2. 2 years, you say? You realize that’s 150 books/year you’ll have to read between now and then. I’d say you’re 3-4 deep years now. And 4 years ago you weren’t even graduated from college. That’s kind of sad, isn’t it? 😛
