Goodreads Update

It is that time agian! Here is what's new on my Goodreads TBR account! I was about to feel all proud because it isn't very many books added, but then I realized it's 18 books. In one month. I think I need an intervention.

  1. The Inventors: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson. I can't help it. I just love this nerdy stuff.

  2. The Jewels of Paradise by Donna Leon - Guido Brunetti, so obviously.

  3. First Impressions: A Novel of Old Books, Unexpected Love, and Jane Austen by Charlie Lovett - My sister made me do it.

  4. The Bookman's Tale by Charlie Lovett - Ditto.

  5. Three Bags Full by Leonie Swann - I overheard a bookseller at Barnes and Noble tell another customer about this one. It is a murder mystery told from the perspective of the sheep.

  6. The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee - I am another victim of BookRiot's podcast suite. This book comes up at least once a month, so I added it.

  7. Life at the Dakota: New York's Most Unusual Address by Stephen Birmingham - I really have no idea why I put this on my list, but it sounds fascinating.

  8. Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan - I'm sorry, did you say update on A Tale of Two Cities? Yes, please.

  9. Quiet Power: the Secret Strength of Introverts by Susan Cain - This is a YA edit of one of my favorite books: Quiet.

  10. The Fire This Time: A New Generation Speaks About Race by Jesmyn Ward - I love Jesmyn Ward. And race is suddenly in my face every day.

  11. Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase - I won this in a giveaway at work. I figured I'd add it to my list.

  12. The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher: A Shocking Murder and the Undoing of a Great Victorian Detective by Kate Summerscale - A real Victorian mystery. I'll have one.

  13. Happy People Read and Drink Coffee by Agnes Martin-Lugand - Originally in French, this little love story has a great title and a great cover. Another one I won at work.

  14. Unwise Passions: a True Story of a Remarkable Woman - And the First Great Scandal of 18th Century America by Alan Pell Crawford - This is not my favorite era, but it sounds fascinating.

  15. The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami - My library doesn't carry this book because it's too fragile. Too many moving parts and whatnot. Intriguing.

  16. Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsberg by Irin Carmon - This cover is kind of hilarious. I want to check it out.

  17. Caucasia by Danzy Senna - This is the one I'm reading with one of my library kids. Two sisters are biracial. One looks white and the other looks black. It's 1970's Boston. The kid I'm reading with is black. I can't wait to talk about it with him.

Oops! I can't math. Only 17, not 18. I'm not going to pretend that's some kind of victory. Now I'm all excited about reading all these books again!
