|Check out TTT at The Broke and the Bookish!|
Some of these books are on my physical TBR, some are on my digital TBR, and some are just lounging on my wishlist until the point at which I cave and purchase them. Let's go!
I was soliciting recommendations on Twitter for a book that's something akin to Jonathan Tropper or Where'd You Go, Bernadette? in the quirk department, and Shannon suggested Bellweather Rhapsody by Kate Racculia. High school music festival, strange disappearance, smart, giddy, pop culture? Yes!
I've wanted to pick up one of Jonathan Tropper's novels ever since I watched the film adaptation of This is Where I Leave You. I'm one of those people who can't read the book after I've seen the movie, so I'll just have to taste test from his other books. Atop the recs: Everything Changes and One Last Thing Before I Go.
True Confections, by Katharine Weber, came out of that same Twitter convo. Derek Attig was kind enough to toss this rec my way, and between the cover and the blurb, I know it's only a matter of time!
These didn't emerge from the Twitterverse, but you knew there would be food books somewhere, right??? It seems to be my thing. Life from Scratch, by Sasha Martin, is a book I've seen good things about in the blogosphere. Yes, Chef, by Marcus Samuelsson, is another one!
While I assume there's a deficit of actual wedding cake in this book, I still want to get my paws on Wedding Cake for Breakfast: Essays on the Unforgettable First Year of Marriage, by Kim Perel and Wendy Sherman. From surprise pregnancies, to exes, and second thoughts, it sounds like this book runs the gamut.
Heather sent me a copy of Bone, vol. 1, Out from Boneville, by Jeff Smith, for birthday-slash-Christmas, and I am HOOKED! I ordered the next two volumes, because Greyson is already stealing these. I know when he can read-read he'll really be sucked in. The next two volumes are The Great Cow Race and Eyes of the Storm.
And because who can resist...I caved and pre-ordered Go Set a Watchman, by Harper Lee. I don't think I really need to expound on why.
What's new on your TBR?
