Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Recently-Acquired Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature of The Broke and the Bookish

This week's theme: Last Ten Books that came into my possession

Some of these are from my Christmas haul because I was incapacitated for so long, and had little chance to be gathering more books!

1. The Ecstasy of Influence: nonfictions, by Jonathan Lethem
I'm working through this one right now.

2. Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms: 
The Story of the Animals and Plants That 
Time Has Left Behind, by Richard Fortey

3. The Age of Wonder: How the Romantic 
Generation Discovered the Beauty and 
Terror of Science, by Richard Holmes
I read this one some years ago, but it's truly one of the most beautiful things I've ever regretted not owning. And now I own it :)

4. Vader's Little Princess, by Jeffrey Brown

5. Black Diamonds: The Rise and Fall of an English Dynasty, by Catherine Bailey

I received this as an advance copy a few months ago. It's not exactly up my alley, but my mom read it and enjoyed it enough. It's on my eventual TBR pile.

6. Pet Sematary, by Stephen King
I got this used from a senior community library when we were visiting family near Boca over the winter. It's on the short list!

7. Reagan: The Life, by H.W. Brands
Also not really up my alley, but I never could resist a barrel of laughs.

8. Intimacy Idiot, by Isaac Oliver

9. Middlemarch, by George Eliot
From the lending library at work.  One of those things that I never got around to reading.

10. Little Beasts: a novel, by Matthew McGevna
An advance copy that I'm going to try to read this weekend.
