This week's prompt, from the ladies at The Broke and The Bookish, is a list of ten books I've added to my TBR list lately. Easy peasy, thanks to Litsy. Maybe too easy. It might be helpful when trying to imagine that someday I'll be able to read all of the books I want to read if I stopped adding books to that list faster than I can read them!
1. Provenance by Laney Salisbury and Aly Sujo - nonfiction about art fraud. Money, art, rich people getting taken.
3. The Long Shadow of Small Ghosts by Laura Tillman - two parents kill their three small and in the aftermath the city wrestles with tearing down the building it happened in. Is there such a thing as an evil building?
4. Shrill by Lindy West - because it's seriously time to be reading some feminist work.
5. Evicted by Matthew Desmond - nonfiction book about poverty in America, specifically in Milwaukee, a city we've only recently discovered.
6. Picnic At Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay - in 1900, a class of young women go on an excursion deep in the Australian bush. Four girls and a teacher disappear. Mysteriousness!
7. Adnan's Story by Rabia Chaudry - the story of Adnan Syed whose murder conviction was the basis for the first season of the podcast Serial.
8. Sisters: The Saga of the Mitford Family by Mary S. Lovell - drama about a family who "took the twentieth century by storm."
9. Lab Girl by Hope Jahren - just one of the books about women and science that I've added to the TBR list in the past couple of months.
10. The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore - the battle to light the streets of our cities. The birth of electricity in our lives is seriously interesting stuff anyway you look at it.
