Bookshelf Revealed

Wylie Kinson tagged me for a meme.

"The rules are to provide a list of books that you have on your shelves to see if anyone can learn about you from them - but not just any books. They have to be books that you've actually paid for, nothing given, borrowed, stolen, or whatever."

Well... I have quite a monstrous number of books (Hi, I'm Maureen and I'm an book-buying addict.)

In the interest of fun, I'm going to only pick books I've bought in the past year (maybe two) and which I either have already read and loved, or fully intend to read. I find, since I've started to write, that I often buy books without the intention of reading the entire thing. Too many books, too little time...

Here goes:
  • Darkly Dreaming Dexter, by Jeff Lindsay
  • The Unfinished Canadian, by Andrew Cohen
  • The Memory Keeper's Daughter, by Kim Edwards
  • the guy not taken, by Jennifer Weiner
  • A Brief History of Misogyny: The World's Oldest Prejudice, by Jack Holland
  • Forgive Me, by Amanda Eyre Ward
  • Catching Genius, by Kristy Kiernan
  • Undercover Protector, by Molly O'Keefe
  • Love Walked In, by Marisa de los Santos

Okay, that's it!

I really want to read Darkly Dreaming Dexter, but don't want to ruin the HBO series... Does that make sense? Usually it's the other way around!
Also on my 'to acquire' list are The Memory Keeper's Daughter and the Unfinished Canadian - though the latter is one of those books that I'm sure will end up on the $10 table at Chapters eventually... so maybe I'll just wait a bit.
And of course, Molly's.
I've never read anything by Jennifer Weiner. Am I missing something?

Re: Jennifer Weiner... The only one I've read is In Her Shoes. She's a very good writer... But in spite of buying a few others (the one on the list is a collection of short stories, and I also have Good In Bed on my TBR pile) I have yet to start another.

I keep hearing wonderful things about The Memory Keeper's Daughter, but I haven't read it yet. I do own (and have read :) Weiner's Good in Bed, as well as a few others by her. I really enjoy her writing. On my TBR shelf (well, shelves) is another of hers--Goodnight Nobody.

I am truly honored, Maureen. Thank you so much!
