So the new additions to the staggering TBR mountain range are:
The Historian - Elizabeth Kostovo
I've read a lot of positive reviews of this lately and since I was already reading Dracula, I decided I'd better read this too!
Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
I Bookcrossed my old copy of P&P before we came back to Japan and I think a re-read may be in order sometime next year. I'm also playing with the idea of re-reading all the Austens next year as some other bloggers have talked about.
The Flower Mat - Shugoro Yamamoto
I was looking for something else to buy with Twenty-four Eyes and this one sounded interesting.
Twenty-four Eyes - Sakae Tsuboi
Will Ferguson made mention of this in Hitching Rides with Buddha, calling it "one of Japan's most touching novels". Who am I to argue with Will?
A Certain Slant of Light - Laura Whitcomb
A YA ghost story. This kept being recommended to me on Amazon because of Twilight, and I read a good review of it recently so into the basket it went too.
Eclipse and New Moon - Stephenie Meyer
I went ahead and ordered these because I want to continue reading about Edward and Bella and don't think I can wait too much longer.
