In my TBR this month | Nonfiction November

This is the last week of  Nonfiction November  - this may only be my second time actually following through for all four weeks of this event. Which is great - because I discovered some amazing blogs and several excellent nonfiction titles this month. Doing Dewey  is hosting the week and she's asking -  It’s been a month full of amazing nonfiction books! Which ones have made it onto your TBR? Be sure to link back to the original blogger who posted about that book! I picked up a ton of recommendations this month - these six are the ones I am most looking forward to reading.  Pandemic Solidarity  by Marina Sitrin and Rebecca Solnit - discovered over at Monika's  Lovely Bookshelf  - she has several similar books recommended in her post, and I'll admit I TBR'd almost all of them.  Doughnut Economics  by Kate Raworth -  Unsolicited Feedback  has several other books on this topic but this one in particular caught my eye. I Have Something to Tell You  by Chasten Buttigieg - thi

Yet another Monday! (April 4, 2011)


It's Monday! What are you reading this week?

Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books wants to know what we're reading. I'm only too happy to oblige!


I missed this meme last week during my sleep-deprived, still-recovering-from-the-awesome-DC-trip-fatigue break from blogging. There hasn't been much progress reading-wise though.

Books completed in the last week
-  The Four Ms. Bradwells by Meg Waite Clayton: A delightful book that ended up surprising me.
-  Slow Death by Rubber Duck by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie: I'm so glad I read this. There's just so much I learned even if much of it was scary!
-  Miss Entropia and the Adam Bomb by George Rabasa: Before I finished this book, I was going to say hilarious, but in the end it was anything but. What a look into the mind of a disturbed guy!
-  Coraline by Neil Gaiman: I read this because I was just plain curious about this book. Now I don't have to abashedly admit that I haven't read it.

News from over my blog
Books on my nightstand
I have at least 7 new titles to review this month. I'm not sure how I can handle that many review titles, except by reading each description and ooh-ing over each one.

A Thread of SkyA Thread of Sky by Deanna Fei: I love books that focus on women and tell the story from their varied perspectives. This is another one of those and I can't wait to read it.
The Kitchen DaughterThe Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHency: This is another one of those books that look to be outside my usual reading zone, so I'm hoping to be surprised by it. I hadn't even heard of this one until I got it in the mail.
The Jack BankThe Jack Bank by Glen Retief: The last I read about anything about or set in the Apartheid period in South Africa was in high school. So when I saw this one, I just had to read it. Besides, the synopsis sounds so enticing that I may just be picking this one first to read between these three.

I like the title - " Miss Entropia and the Adam Bomb ". I haven't read anything by Neil Gaiman ; I am curious about his books too.
The Kitchen Daughter looks really good to me! I'm anxious to get my hands on it.

A book about Apartheid in South Africa will surely be really interesting. And, I'll confess I've never read a Neil Gaiman... how have I let that happen?
I'm curious about A Thread of Sky...I'll be waiting for your review.

Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

I loved that title too! I hadn't read Gaiman until Coraline. I'm glad to rectify that even if with a small book. :)

It definitely sounds good right? I can't wait to find out more.

You should pick a Gaiman book! I have a couple more of his on my shelves, but I don't know if I'll get to them now.

I'm curious about it too! I just picked the book last night for a first glance and it is big!

I haven't read Coraline yet, so you weren't the only one, but I did see the movie.
Athira / Aths said…
I just started A Thread of Sky and it's so great!

I'm curious about the movie too. I thought they had a non-animation movie out too, but seems not. Still, I'm not one to complain.
