Ooh, according to Rachel at Books In The Sun, there's a thing (that's perhaps her own awesome invention) called Wednesday New Read Roundup, which is absolutely perfect, because I add books to my to-read list all the time without reading any of them.
Some of these I don't remember adding, but okey dokey:
Anno Dracula, Kim Newman - My friend Naomi recommended this. I shall read it.
The Collector, John Fowles - I forget how I stumbled across this. Probably while reading about serial killers, as I do that a disturbing amount. Did I mention my lovely first date story, where we did bar trivia? I didn't know that many of the answers, and it was hideously embarrassing, but then the bonus round was Serial Killer Monikers, of which I knew 4/5. Yeah, there was no second date.
Lilith's Brood, Octavia Butler - Who told me to read this? Anyway, it's on my list. And I'm gonna check it out.
Born in Africa: The Quest for the Origins of Human Life, Martin Meredith - Who doesn't want to read about the origins of human life? No one!
...And Ladies of the Club, Helen Hooven Santmyer - This was actually added just now while talking on the phone with my mother. She says it's swell. It's about a fictional group of women in Ohio who start some kind of study group. And it spans generations and so forth, as do most novels about women nowadays. Whatever, who doesn't love Ohio?
I have an unspeakable number of books on my to-read list. These are the most recent. Let's see if they can't be read within the next five years.
