Wednesday New Read Roundup 03/08

I have a bunch of new books added to my list. Book blogs are dangerous! My list is getting so long.

See my full To-Read list at

  1. I love me some historical fiction. And even better when it's about someone I have heard of but know very little about. And so Madame Tussand (Michelle Moran) reviewed by Cat @ book magic makes my list.
  2. I am actually a little torn about putting Snow (Orhan Pamuk) on my list. It's set in Turkey which is a location I have not travelled to in my books so that makes me want to read it. But the amount of political elements in the book puts me off a little bit. So I'm not sure. Reviewed by bibliojunkie.
  3. Jerusalem Maiden (Talia Carner) looks fantastic thanks to a review at bookwormwithaview.
  4. A collection of bed time stories for grown ups? Sounds awesome. Thanks curiositykilledthebookwarm for reviewing Stories for Nightime and Some for the Day (Ben Loory).
  5.  Over at thebookgatherer I read about Mudbound (Hillary Jordan) set in 1946 about a young woman leaving the city to live with her new husband on a Mississippi farm.
  6. And finally a book set in Iran about a group of women reading forbidden western literature. Reading Lolita in Tehran (Azar Nafisi) reviewed at shelovesreading.
A great selection if I do say so myself!
