(For those who noticed, yes, this does mean that I got married when I was 20 years old.)
I'm finding something odd here. Each week I randomly add books to my TBR list - there's no rhyme or reason to this, I just add them as I hear about them. So why is it that my lists seem to have themes?! Last week it was WWI and WWII, the week before it was WWII and novels set in foreign countries, and this week it's plagues and "lasts" ... Plagues?! What exactly is going on in my head?!
- Six Modern Plagues and How We Are Causing Them, by Mark Jerome Walters - doesn't the title say enough?
- The American Plague, by Molly Caldwell Crosby - early 1900s, studying yellow fever in Cuba
- Joy in the Morning, by Betty White - this reviewer introduced me to another work by the author of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, a book I truly loved
- The Last Knight, by Hilari Bell - I think this is the first time I really got excited about a YA novel! It sounds like lots of fun and this review reminded me of Don Quixote ... what do you think?
- The Last Queen, by CW Gortner - about "crazy" Queen Juana, daughter of Ferdinand & Isabella, sister of Katherine of Aragon (1st wife of Henry VIII) ... I've been fascinated with her for a long while and this looks like a great read
