Serendipitous Reading List

I had a really good weekend, Y’All.  I came sooooo close to finishing the magazine (it’ll be out this week–promise!), The Taste Tester gave me a box of new cameras (all of them much older than I), it’s no longer January, and I discovered a reading list in the library book I was reading (a book I was reading to review for the magazine at that).  So, I can’t turn down serendipity (at least in this case).  I’m going to read all the books on the list this year (along with all my regular reading).  Here’s the list (minus the one being reviewed in the magazine so as to maintain the surprise) for posterity:

The Heart Broke In by James Meek

The Salt God’s Daughter by Ilie Ruby

Paris in Love: A Memoir by Eloisa James

We Are Now Beginning Our Descent by James Meek

Of Men and Their Mothers by Mameve Medwed

Have you read any of these?  What have you been reading lately?
