Goodreads Update 2, Jan 2023

We are slowly nearing the end of the month, which means it's time to see what I've added to Goodreads recently. I didn't go overboard. This time. I promise.

Age of Vice

Age of Vice by Deepti Kapoor - I requested this from Book of the Month for January because it sounds interesting. It is set in India and is basically a Rich People Behaving Badly situation. It sounds like mafia stuff, but, you know, in India. I recently heard a pretty scathing review of it, but I'll probably still give it a sniff because I don't know how much I trust that person's taste. It has pretty decent ratings on Goodreads.


If I Die in Juarez by Stella Pope Duarte - This book is 15 years old, but I just now ran across it in my wanderings. You know how I love to read about this messed up city, for some unknown reason. This is a fictional account of what could be any of the hundreds of women who have been tortured and murdered in Juarez.


Perestroika in Paris by Jane Smiley - I told you about this one on Monday. My sister said I'd like it, so I put on the TBR.

Quiet Madness

A Quiet Madness: A Biographical Novel of Edgar Allan Poe by John Isaac Jones - I thought this was another book in the year of Poe we appear to be having, but no. This book came out in 2020. I just have my mind on Poe because my son has a class on him this semester, and now I'm seeing him everywhere I guess.

Invisible Kingdom

The Invisible Kingdom: Reimagining Chronic Illness by Meghan O'Rourke - I have a vested interest in the treatment of chronic illness. I imagine this will be difficult to read, but enlightening.

One of Us Is Back

One of Us Is Back by Karen M. McManus - Squee!!! A third book in this series! I didn't know there was one coming.

Flight Behavior

Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver - A former librarian is a regular at my work and he raved about this, so I decided to add it to my list.

See, I told you I didn't go too crazy adding books!
