Adding to my TBR list – Bookmarks January/February 2014

Here are the books that made it onto my to-read list from the latest issue of Bookmarks Magazine.

The January/February issue was full of interesting non-fiction titles; here are the ones that caught my eye:

Have you read any of these?

  1. Mouse took off with my issue before I got a chance to read it. I’m still looking for it. You wouldn’t think it would be that hard to find something she hides . . . I haven’t read any of the books you’ve listed, although I’ve come close a couple times to reading Devil in the White City. I don’t know why I haven’t.

      Wendy – I’ve been meaning to read that one for a while, too – especially since I really liked In the Garden of Beasts. And it is amazing to me how completely toddlers can lose things! I hope your issue turns up soon. :)

    I really wish I had this magazine. Magazines are just so flipping expensive in Canada. :( I haven’t read any of these either!

    My sister gave me a subscription to Bookmarks for my birthday. The January/February issue was my first one and I am hooked! I haven’t read any of the books you listed.

    The Confederate in the Attic is pretty good but The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down is so good and terribly sad and just really moving.

      Hillary – I love her essays, so I think I’m going to make an effort to find time for that one this year.

    Devil in the White City would be on my top reads ever. (BTW I couldn’t stand the one he wrote about the Ambassador in Nazi Germany.) But Chicago, the World’s Fair, the famous architects that built Chicago, and a serial murderer? AWESOME. I never saw Chicago the same after I read that book, in the best way possible.

      Sandy – I didn’t love his Nazi book, but I did find it interesting. I will definitely be adding Devil in the White City to my 2014 reading list!

    Wow, nice selection here. I have read some of them: Devil in the White City – good solid read. Confederates – you as a reader have to really be into the Civil War to appreciate this one, I think. The Spirit Catches You – fascinating about inter-cultural challenges and health care. Salvation on Sand Mountain – fascinating to see how the author changes over time (even if you’re not into religion – it has anthropological aspects to it…) And haven’t read that particular Simon Winchester title, but have read other titles by him – good writing! You have some great reading to choose from here!

    Devil In The White City is fantastic. Our book club read it a couple years ago and it won our Bookies book club book of the year award.

    These all look good. I got the Patchett book for Christmas so will read that one soon. I’m also interested in reading the Adrift one too. It sounds like an epic survival tale. Good picks!
