Happy Tuesday, Bookworms!
I seem to have come down with a cold, which is endlessly vexing to me because I so rarely get sick. As a result I’m a giant whiny puddle of goo. In an effort not to dwell on what I’m sure is the most minor of ailments, I’m going to make a list. The ladies of The Broke and the Bookish have asked us to list what we’ve got on our TBR list this spring. Ready for a preview of things to come?
1. Frog Music by Emma Donoghue– Are you as excited as I am? Emma Donoghue rocks my socks and I’m really looking forward to her latest offering. An unsolved murder in 1876 San Francisco, a burlesque dancer, and a smallpox outbreak? Hello, awesomeness!
2. The Remedy: Robert Koch, Arthur Conan Doyle, and the Quest to Cure Tuberculosis by Thomas Goetz– I love a good disease novel. This non-fiction offering (I KNOW! I’m reading non fiction?!) shows Arthur Conan Doyle’s quest to discover the truth behind a purported cure to tuberculosis. The father of Sherlock Holmes playing Mythbusters? Pretty exciting stuff!
3. Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead- I used to dance in my younger days (not well, mind you, but enough to have a bit of a love for the art.) This book is about frigging ballerinas, y’all. You know I’ve got to read that!
4. The House Girl by Tara Conklin– It’s this month’s Fellowship of the Worms selection and I cannot wait! A historical fiction dual narrative and ART?!?! Why, it sounds like Hist-ART-ical Fiction to me. Wahoo!
5. I Am Livia by Phyllis T. Smith- I’m going to be reading this one for another TLC Book Tour and I’m sooooo excited! Strong female protagonist in ancient Rome? Sign me up!
6. Looking for Alaska by John Green- Sometimes I’m in the mood for a little YA. I’ve heard this is one of John Green’s best, so I’m looking forward to giving it a shot.
7. The Green Mile by Stephen King- King’s March (hosted by Fourth Street Review and Wensend) is happening and I want to join in. The Green Mile sounded like a good choice for me, being devoid of some of the super horror-tastic elements of some of his other books.
Surely 7 is enough for a TBR for the time being? I don’t like to have too much planned out so I still have the freedom to read whatever the heck I feel like. So there you are. What’s on your TBR list this spring?
