This week The Broke and the Bookish ask us what the last ten books added to our TBR piles have been (these are all books in my possession, not just ones I mean to buy). Most are gifts from the holidays.
1. Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nut: This is for our English Department book club and I'm really looking forward to it. It is our job as educators to be aware of what's going on with our students.
2. The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende- I tend to like old Allende better, but I'm still a fan.
3. Notorious RGB by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik- So much respect.
4. Did You Ever Have a Family by Bill Klegg- Amazon was having a 30% off any book sale during the holidays so I grabbed this one on a whim.
5. Avenue of Mysteries by John Irving- I'm hearing it's horrible. But, it's John.
6. Euphoria by Lily King- I suggested this one for book club (we'll read it later in the year) and it was voted in.
7. Batman and Psychology by Travis Langly- He is the most realistic superhero, after all.
8. Why We Write About Ourselves by Meredith Maran- I received this ARC after loving her first collection (this one is, too, of memoirists).
9. Thirteen Ways of Looking by Colum McCann- He could start writing technical guides for hanging your flatscreen and I'd be all over them.
10. Maus by Art Speigelman- I think this one is up next!
