It’s Tuesday and I thought I would share some books that are on my every growing To-Be-Read list.
Here is a snapshot of my tbr list of
books; waiting patiently, but
in good company:

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
by Rebecca Skloot
This one has been on my list for a while, I’m a bit ashamed of that. I am so interested in the story, and anxious to one day finally get to it.
Her name was Henrietta Lacks, but scientists know her as HeLa. She was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells—taken without her knowledge in 1951—became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more.

Book Bean: Peppered Peach Tea
Peach tea mixed well with clove and anise,
then poured over ice.
The Master and Margarita
by Mikhail Bulgakov
This book was suggested to me by a fellow blogger and I am intrigued by the said odd and mysterious pages within.
This uncensored translation of Bulgakov’s posthumously published masterpiece of black magic and black humor restores its sliest digs and sharpest jabs at Stalin’s regime, which suppressed it. Filled with punny and soaring prose thick with contemporary historical references and political irony.
Rated 4.5 on amazon.com
Book Bean: Sunset Cocoa Add extra hot milk, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and a heaping tablespoon of marmalade into a blender and blend well. Pour the frothy, rich, citrusy goodness into a mug and top with a dollop of whip!
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee:
An Indian History of the American West
by Dee Brown
I recently came across this book and was really excited about it. I love historical books of this nature and Native American history is especially close to my heart.
Using council records, autobiographies, and firsthand descriptions, Brown allows great chiefs and warriors of the Dakota, Ute, Sioux, Cheyenne, and other tribes to tell their stories.
Rated 4.7 on amazon.com
Book Bean: Herbalberry Tea Steep your favorite herbal tea I like chamomile, mix in fresh berries of choice (I like marionberry.) Top off with a garnish of lemon and a drizzle of agave
With every new book I read I feel like I gain 2 more to add to my list. At this rate I’ll never read every book that I set out too, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love always having a plethora of options and a variety of interesting and exciting things to read!
