(TBR Thursday list idea stolen from Moonlight Reader)


My actual TBR is, I'm almost positive, infinite. Or in more tangible numeric terms, is 1700+ books and counting- so says Goodreads. So I'll just look at what is floating to the top of my pile this week.


Having just finished the first in the series, I am feverishly pursuing the rest of the Temeraire books by Naomi Novik. Throne of Jade, Black Powder War, and Empire of Ivory reside at the topmost heights of Mount TBR.


I'm also slowly making some headway through more audio books. Once I've finished Devil in the White City, I hope to move on to either Mort(e) or Eighty Days. I tend to prefer non-fiction for my audio choices, but Mort(e) is just too interesting (and too free on Scribd) to pass by.


I'm also hoping to tackle some nonfiction about Sylvia Plath, though I'm torn between Mad Girl's Love Song and Pain, Parties, Work (both about her early, pre-Ted days).


Last but not least, a perennially present library book (I keep checking it out and putting it off), Bookmarked: Reading My Way from Hollywood to Brooklyn. I'm determined to actually read it before it's due date on the 18th. I love books about books.
