    Great list of books!

    Here's my
    It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
    Hope you will stop by!

  3. A wonderful mailbox! I definitely want to read the Toni Morrison book...and several of these I am curious about.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. Other than Morrison, all of the books mentioned are new to me! Love that when I visit a blog and find something new.

    Have a great reading week.

  5. I read Map of Time. It was unusual but I liked it.

  6. Love the look of the books you've read. I've had fun looking through your blog.

  7. I think everyone is reading "Everything is Illuminated" :) Glad you liked it!

    Happy reading this week :)

    It's Monday! What Are You Reading @ the Brunette Librarian's Blog

  8. I'm sad to hear that Map of Time wasn't good, since the cover is so pretty! Glad it's one I didn't pick up!

  9. Hi. You are reading some different books to the ones I normally read - but I will be visiting your blog again soon for a good lok around.

  10. Ooh, I haven't read any of these, but Toni Morrison's book Beloved was beautifully written. :)

  11. I haven't read anything by Toni Morrison in a while - love her books!

    Hope you have a great week!

  12. Thx for hopping by my Monday!!! Sometimes I read slow, too. I picked up Grave Mercy unintentionally this morning and devoured over 250 pages. So... I think for me, it's a matter of what I'm reading rather than if I want to read!! I'm a new follower!!!

  13. Nice selection of books! The Map of Time looks interesting but 1/5 stars isn't encouraging...

  14. I've never heard of any of these ones, but Baby's in Black looks really interesting, I'm especially loving that cover! :D It sucks that you didn't like The Map of Time, but at least you liked the other two books you read this week. :)

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Monday post. :)
    Happy Reading,
    Ambur :)

  15. Looks like a great week! Thanks for visiting my blog. Now following you!

  16. I Am An Executioner sounds fascinating. I think it's time for another short story collection in my life!

  17. Lots of interesting biographical books. And Toni Morrison - she writes some heavy duty fiction. I read Beloved, and both hated and loved it. Very moving novel.

    Have fun reading this week!

  18. I'd like to read Everything is Illuminated

    Wishing you a great reading week,

  19. I am an Executioner sounds really good! I will have to check it out. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  20. I'm sorry to see you didn't like The Map of Time. I've been looking forward to reading that book for some time, but I can never seem to find the time. It's nice to see you enjoyed Everything is Illuminated. I've heard good things, but when I tried to read Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, I found it hard to get through.

  21. 3 books is a great week for me, my reading has really slowed and 1 or 2 books is the norm. I'm not familiar with your books but I hope you enjoy them. Sorry The Map Of Time didn't do it for you.

  22. If that's considered slow, then I must be reading in slow-mo! LOL
    I used to be able to read like that, but I stopped for some reason; I should really get back to it!

  23. Interesting list. So many great titles. Everything Is Illuminated is on my tr list. 3 books is better than my average at the moment. Hope it picks up for you though.

    Thanks for visiting and I'm now following you back :)

  24. I haven't heard of any of these, but they look interesting. Enjoy!

  25. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm now following you by e-mail and ALSO I am totally jealous of your to-read pile. I always wish mine had some adult literature, but I can't stop buying YA.

  26. All of your books seem very interesting...:)

  27. Is Everything is Illuminated done in the same style (and wonky formating) of Extremely Loud and Incredible Close? I think I have EiI on wish list for the library, but I desperately hated EL&IC, so I am second guessing that in case that is just how he writes.

    I still have Map of Time to read, but the cover art and fly papers are gorgeous.

  28. You may think that glaciers hockey is actually too challenging to understand as a grownup but starting being an adult is completely doable as well as starting being an adult actually has it's advantages. Ice handbags is tougher to discover than other team sports activities because you need to learn how you can skate before you learn how you can play glaciers hockey.

  29. Nice Post, Thanks for your very useful information... I will bookmark for next reference.
