Musing Mondays

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about books on your wishlist…

Last week we talked about keeping a wishlist. Why not pull out that list and show us some of the books you’ve been eyeing off?

My wishlist includes
  • The Original of Laura, by Vladimir Nabokov,
  • No Tomorrow, by Vivant Denon,
  • The Ladies from St. Petersburg, b y Nina Berberova,
  • The Making of a Marchioness, by Frances Hodgson Burnett,
  • The Last of the Angels, by Fadhil Al-Azzawi,
  • My Name Is Red, by Orhan Pamuk,
  • A Gate at the Stairs, by Lorrie Moore,
  • Burnt Shadows, by Kamila Shamsie,
  • Paris Stories, by Mavis Gallant,
  • The Broken Teaglass, by Emily Arsenault,
and more. I'm going to buy The Original of Laura the minute it's out; I can wait for the paperback versions of those out in hardcover and I'll pick up the paperbacks one by one over the next few months.
