I'm desperately playing catch up with my poor Google reader right now, but it seems it's not doing me any good. My wish list is growing as I'm writing this! (Maybe even as I'm sleeping...) And as if the enormous backlog is not enough, my blog is moving - no, not this one, my German one, as I've definitely had it with wordpress! I don't have the patience to spend half an hour just to include one picture that links back to another page.
But back to the growing wish list!
Bloggers I would like to blame are:
Teddyree from The Eclectic Reader for Claudia Gray's Evernight, a YA vampire novel she herself didn't absolutely love. But still, she somehow made it sound like an awesome book, so I'm curious!
Kathy from bermudaonion, who talked about Masha Hamilton's 31 Hours and was very secretive about the plot, but from what I know about her taste in books, this might just be the one for me!
Lenore from Presenting Lenore, who reviewed Andromeda Klein by Frank Portman. This seems like such a fun book to read! She also talked about Carla Buckley's The Things That Keep Us Here - I seem to be into apocalyptic lit lately, which is pretty unusual for me.
My long-time friend Lesa from Lesa's Book Critiques, who reviewed Mennonite In A Little Black Dress by Rhoda Janzen, and it sounds awesome!
Kailana from The Written World, who talked about James A. Levine's The Blue Notebook, a novel about an Indian child prostitute, which seems to be intriguing, if sad!
Kathy from Kittling: Books, who reviewed The Writing Class by Jincy Willett, which seems to be a book about a murderer in a writing class.
Marie from The Boston Bibliophile recently presented The Lost Tribe: Jewish Fiction in her Friday Finds. It is an anthology of contemporary writers and seems interesting.
Alyce from At Home With Books, who found Gang Leader For A Day by Sudhir Venkatesh, a non-fiction recounting of Venkatesh's years with a gang as an observer.
Well, now I'm about half way through the back log, so I've done enough procrastinating! I'm off to read a bit and then, tomorrow, I will actually work on moving part of my (German) blog!
