It’s Tuesday and I would like to share
a few more books I wish
to add to my TBR list.
Here is a snapshot of my tbr wishlist:
The Life We Bury
by Allen Eskens
Admit-tingly not something I
would normally be attracted to.
However after reading the synopsis
I find myself overly intrigued,
and had to add it to my list.
College student Joe Talbert has the modest task of interviewing a stranger and writing a brief biography of the person.
Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran.
He is also a convicted murderer and rapist, with only a few months to live.
Rated 4.4 on amazon.com
Book Bean: Apple Au Lait
Hot apple cider mixed with steamed milk.
The Name of the Rose: by Umberto Eco
Including the Author’s Postscript
The year is 1327. Franciscans in a wealthy Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, and Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate. When his delicate mission is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths, Brother William turns detective. This was Italian author Umberto Eco’s debut novel, written in 1980. I am drawn to this historical murder mystery, filled with intellectual mystery.
Rated 4.3 on amazon.com
Book Bean: Crimson Mocha
Melted dark chocolate, espresso, splash of grenadine,
a dash of cinnamon, and steamed milk. Topped off
with whip, a maraschino cherry, and
sprinkled with cinnamon.
A Document in the Form of a Novel
by Anatoli Kuznetsov
I could not of course leave out something relating to WWII. Due to my fascination with the war, I am forever finding books of this nature to add to my list.
A.Anatoli’s classic novel of a Jewish boy living under oppression at the hands of the Nazi’s in 1940’s Ukraine. Censored by the Soviets ,
“Bari Yar” is a true story in the tradition of Solzenietzyn.
Rated 4.9 on amazon.com
Book Bean: Black Gold
