until January 2018 when That Artsy Reader Girl took on the hosting duties!
Today's theme is The Ten Most Recent Additions to my To-Read List!
This is from
Lydia Schoch's Top Ten Tuesday listing for January 22!
Thank goodness she stopped by and commented on my
Top Ten Tuesday posting for that day!
Else I might never have visited her listing!
The Person You Mean to Be: How Good People Fight Bias
by Dolly Chugh
This is a topic near and dear to my heart!
We all have biases. Period. To deny that is to deny reality.
However, that doesn't mean we can't fight
to eliminate just as many of our own biases as possible!
This book has an amazing 4.57 rating on Goodreads!
And that is with 161 ratings! (Not just one...or two!)
Ooohhh, how exciting!! :)
A second book from Lydia's TTT posting last week!
Anger is a Gift by Mark Oshiro
This is a debut novel.
Trying a new author always excites me!
How relevant this story arc is...
A child dealing with the aftermath of a parent
having been killed by the police!
And a third book from Lydia!
(Lydia and I would evidently make a good reading team!)
The Cowkeeper's Wish: A Gealogical Journey
by Kristen Den Hartog and Tracy Kasabaski
I am utterly fascinated by this book!
It is nonfiction, a recounting of past generations
of these two sisters' ancestors and their journeys
to create a better life for themselves as well as their offspring.
These people start by walking from coastal Wales to London, with their cattle in tow! Their great-granddaughter ends up in southern Ontario!
The fourth and book that I became familiar with
from Lydia's TTT post last week...
The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
Normally I might not be drawn to this type of book,
but I admit the Goodreads synopsis intrigued me!
This is the initial installment in a series,
so hopefully she will continue it in the near future...
And finally, book #5, graciously offered by Lydia:
The Sisters of the Winter Wood by Rena Rossner
The synopsis of this rather reminds me of
The Bear and the Nightingale, which I loved!
Fantasy. Magical Realism. And Historical Fiction.
All in a book classified as Young Adult!
Yes! Lead me to it!
Unmarriageable by Soniah Kamal
I became acquainted with this book
A retelling of Pride and Prejudice, set in Pakistan.
However, it has been so long since I read
Pride and Prejudice
I should probably reread it before reading this!
That brings us to book #7 for this posting.
I am thrilled to report that one of my all-time favorite authors,
Erica Bauermeister, has another novel set to release May 21st 2019: The Scent Keeper!
This woman uses language in such exceptional ways
as to be totally unique!
I cannot wait for this and will definitely have my favorite
used bookstore owner order it in so I can
have it as soon as possible following the release date!
If I'm really lucky I'll pick it up on a weekend
and be able to read it the same day!
Book #8 is Hope on the Inside by Marie Bostwick.
Everybody in my book club adored the two Marie Bostwick books we've read,
A Single Thread, the first in the Cobbled Court Quilts series, and The Second Sister.
Book #9 is If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin
A movie adaptation is due to be released this year.
The first Baldwin novel I read and loved was
Go Tell It on the Mountain.
I recently read The Fire Next Time
and Giovanni's Room.
Both are intense reads,
despite the relatively small page count for each.
And lastly, book #10 is
Between Shades of Gray by Ruth Sepetys.
I adored Salt to the Sea when I read
and reviewed it almost 3 years ago!
I have since acquired a copy of Between Shades of Gray
and hope to read it yet this year!
