Here's what landed on my TBR list this week:
- The Time Machine, by HG Wells - this is a classic that I can't believe I've overlooked, and Nymeth's review reminded me of it. I also enjoy adaptations of Wells's books but I don't think I've ever read any of them. Hopefully I'll love him as much as I love Jules Verne.
- From Seed to Harvest, by Octavia Butler - tor.com posted recently about this collection of Butler's four "Patternist" books. Their overview was EXCELLENT and really peaked my interest in this sci-fi series. It went on my PBS Wish List immediately.
- Out of Africa, by Isak Dinesen - after rewatching the movie version I simply MUST read the book. Karen Blixen (who wrote as Isak Dinesen) was a fascinating woman living in a fascinating time, and this is the story of her life. Here's a clip from the movie in case you haven't seen it before (fyi, this is a cheesy preview but a really good movie):
