  1. Interesting list, thanks for the suggestions. I did one like this a while ago. (see

  2. Those should keep you busy for a while.

  3. I love book TT’s! 7 sounds intriguing! Thanks for the tips.
    My TT lists the 13 goals of a witch, with my thoughts on them.

  4. I really loved a couple of those! The Bojahlian is not as good as his other books (IMO) but still definitely worth reading.

  5. I read both What the Body Remembers and Comfort Woman; one was great and the other, sadly, didn’t do much for me, but I won’t tell which got which vote; you’ll have to read them and decide for yourself!

    Happy reading and have a great TT!

  6. Books seem to be the topic du jour on TT’s this week. Wonderful to learn about new books.

  8. You sound like me. I have a stack of books calling out for me to read them, yet there they sit lonely on the bookshelf. One of these days…

  9. I haven’t read any of these yet, but a couple of them are on my books to read list too.

  10. Comfort Women has caught my eye a few times. I must add it to my To Read List.

    LOVED Kitchen God’s Wife. Any Amy Tan, really. Though, I am behind on her newest books.

    Water Witches? I read Chris’ other book, Midwife something. LOVED it. May have to read this too.

    Dropped Threads sounds neat. I liked Stone Diaries.

    I love Bookish 13s.

  11. I love book 13’s because it gives me new ideas for readinglists!

  12. I think The Kitchen God’s Wife might be on my TBR shelf too. Thanks for sharing your list!

  13. Oh you MUST MUST MUST read What The body Remembers next. 😛 Dropped Threads made me cry sometimes it was so good. 😛
