Ten Books from My Past Seasonal TBR Lists I Still Haven't Read

 Although I've gotten a lot better at fulfilling my reading plans, due to book clubs, having a better sense of what I like to read, and sneaking in books I've already got or already started, I still usually end up with a few leftover books on my lists--though sometimes I do catch up months or even years later. Here are the books I still haven't read from some of my more recent seasonal TBR lists--I think I have read at least as many as I haven't though!

Happy Top Ten Tuesday at That Artsy Reader Girl!

Ten Books from My Past Seasonal TBR Lists I Still Haven't Read

  1. In the Serpent's Wake by Rachel Hartman--I am still really looking forward to this one after Tess!
  2. Dreams Greater Than Heartbreak by Charlie Jane Anders--I feel like I have to reread Victories Greater Than Death first.
  3. The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Dare--I know I bought this one--oops.
  4. Visible City by Tova Mirvis--Forgot about this one.
  5.  Ariel Samon: Freelance Rabbi by MaNishtana
  6. Through It All by Christine Farris King
  7. Windborn by Mary Fan (really, just all her books I haven't read yet)
  8. To Sleep in a Sea of Stars by Christopher Paolini
  9. The Bone Shard Daughter by Andrea Stewart
  10. The Factory Witches of Lowell by C.S. Malerich

Honestly, I do the same thing with old TBR lists. Sometimes it takes a few years, even, but I do eventually read them.

May you enjoy all of these books.

Book Review: The Princes in the Tower by Alison Weir

3. The Princes in the Tower by Alison Weir Weir, my favorite popular historian, concludes that Richard III murdered the eponymous princes in the tower. Even to this day, the mystery has not been definitively solved, nor, Weir argues, will it likely ever be. But she bases her conclusions on the existing contemporary evidence, asserting that it is a historian's job to deal in probabilities. And so, while Richard III could not be convicted in a modern court, she feels comfortable pointing her finger. Weir's evidence and reasoning are strong, but not overwhelmingly so. She bases her conclusions on contemporary or near-contemporary sources, relying most heavily on Italian monk Mancini, Henry VII's Italian biographer Polydore Vergil, the anonymous Croyland Chronicles, and Sir Thomas More's unfinished biography of Richard III. Weir makes strong arguments for the accuracy of these sources, not least of which that they corroborate each other in many places even though the

Top Ten Characters That Remind Me of Myself

Happy Top Ten Tuesday over at That Artsy Reader Girl! Top Ten Characters That Remind Me of Myself This is kind of the ultimate in book reading, right? At least for me, especially when I was a kid, books were a place I could go to find people like me, the people I really related to. And there were and are a lot! 1. Jo from Little Women Jo March is a writer, she's strong, she's brave, she's a tomboy. She's everything I wanted to be. I've never been quite as angry as Jo, but I've always felt like she and I get each other on a deeper level. 2. Meg from A Wrinkle In Time Like Jo, and unlike me, Meg is also a really angry character. I didn't quite relate to that, but I related to her as an outsider, a rebel, and someone who hated being told what to do by interfering grownups (ok, maybe I'm a little angry). Meg is also really good at math, and while I didn't identify that way, I understood being ostracized by other kids when I couldn't turn

Feliz Ano Nuevo!

Speaking of cultures and society, I leave for Spain on January 9. Instead of continuing as a book blog with a specific goal for number of books to read in a year, Space Station Mir will become a chronicle for my adventures in Spain. Expect a post for each new place that I visit, with pictures! I also plan to continue reviewing books, however I will not make a set goal for number of books to read this year. I do pledge myself to read at least one book in Spanish that was not assigned for a class. In terms of my goals for 2009, I was not diligent enough in keeping track of them. Looking back, I've fulfilled some of them and not others. The greatest trend in my reading this year, which marks a huge deviation for me, is that I've read more non-fiction than I think I've read any other year in my life. I've finally developed the ability to sustain interest in non-fiction other than biographies. For a while, biographies were the only non-fiction I ever read, with the excep
