Goodreads Update 4/27/17

Time to tell you what I've put on my to-read list! I thought I hadn't really put too many on my list this month, but then I opened my Goodreads list and saw that I actually added 10 books. I DID go to Texas Library Association this month, so that probably had something to do with it.

  1. Binti by Nnedi Okorafor - This is a sci-fi book, written by a black woman, featuring a black woman. Win! I've heard great things about it, so I added it to the list.

  2. Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer - Mike loved this book. I had it on my list when it came out, but then I took it off. I heard some more good things about it, so I added it back to my list.

  3. Killers of the Flower Moon by David Grann - This is about the secret FBI killings of the Osage people for their oil and land. The author is coming here next week, and a friend of mine offered to get my copy signed for me. Squee!!

  4. The Impossible Fortress by Jason Rekulak - I got this from Book of the Month Club. It takes place in the 80's so I'm a fan of that. It sounds like a light, fluffy, sweet novel.

  5. The Lost Tudor Princess: The Life of Lady Margaret Douglas by Alison Weir - I always think I'm going to be interested in these types of books, so I order them. Then I just look at their pretty covers instead of reading them.

  6. The Wicked Boy: The Mystery of a Victorian Child Murderer by Kate Summerscale - I like Kate Summerscale. This is an interesting topic, but I'm game.

  7. Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin - The sequel to Wolf by Wolf which I loved last year.

  8. Scythe by Neal Shusterman - When at least three people tell me I need to read this, I decide I better put it on the list.

  9. The Gentlemans' Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee - This takes place in the 18th century with a young man's European Tour. It's a chunker. 528 pages. I can't wait to find out what can be said about this subject for that long.

  10. The Dark Days Pact by Alison Goodman - This is the sequel to The Dark Days Club that I read last August. I was only meh about it, but I've heard the second one is better.

So that's what I've added to my To-Read list this month. What has captured your interest recently?
