I’m in a very bookish mood lately and I decided to join in for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I’ve also been very good on reigning in on my buying impulse (aside from the local markets where I bought The Valley of the Horses by Jean M. Auel because it was in the cover I want and I have the next books already). I want to spotlight my TBR more to keep me from buying and to keep me reading.
I have never read a book about a poker player. …Okay, I just went to read the Goodreads summary because my copy is a hardback with no jacket therefore no blurb, and it doesn’t mention anything about poker. Clearly not what I thought it would be! haha I don’t even know how to summarise the blurb on Goodreads. But I have never read a book with a ninety year old protagonist. That’ll be interesting.
The medical/family drama is pretty famous, especially because of the movie. I have watched the movie, but I still think it’s a very unique idea. A child being born to be a live donor to her sister. It’ll be a very though provoking book and I look forward to reading it. (Thank you to Meagan for buying me it. I will read it eventually! 😛 )
When I received this book in LibraryThing’s SantaThing – their version of secret Santa – I rolled my eyes. Based on the cover and the title I thought it looked like a parody for something. However I went to Goodreads again and many people seem to like it. The novel is about a warrior being a nursemaid for royal child who cannot die otherwise an evil group of black priests will rule over the world in the future.
Previously published as The Grandmothers this novel is about two women who fall for each other’s teenage son. What a different idea! Mum and I have watched the movie, and aside from liking anything remotely romantic, it was pretty strange. It wasn’t boring, but very odd and a unique story.
These four are the most unique books on my TBR shelf. Anything different on yours?
