  1. Wowsa, that's a lot of books! Is The Last Dickens that book that's about the Staplehurst Train accident--kind of like Drood?

  2. Quite a list you got there, Rebecca! I agree, there's some gorgeous covers among your finds!

    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. I have Prayers for Sale. I've read it already so if you would like me to send it along to you, just e-mail me and I can get it out to you.

  4. Wow Rebecca that is some list! Instead of adding them to my TBR I think I will just add a link to your post! Have a great weekend.

  5. Voodoo season sounds fab. I will add that to my list. What a list to keep you busy, but it is lovely to find good books.

  6. Awesome list of books. You may be busy reading, but at least you'll be having fun. Thanks for sharing, I saw a few I'd never seen before.

  7. I also featured Precious in my FF post this week, although not the same review. It sounds really good! I'm going to check out some of your other finds too.

  8. Consequences of Love has a beautiful cover!
    (also, Wide Sargasso Sea is a very good book)

  9. Great collection and GORGEOUS covers!!
    Most of them sound very interesting.. I love that you know from where each book attracted your attention.. I really have to steal this idea for next week!! I have to keep track of where each book idea came from.. but how do you do that?! just curious ;) Any tips?!

  10. Great idea but far out Brussel sprout thats a lot of books! I only took a tiny tumble of the no book buying wagon and got 1 book this week. But in my defense it was on sale (store is closing for rennos) AND I had $7 credit.

  11. What a great collection of books! I find I do the same when blog hopping - I end up adding so many titles to my list.

  12. wow!! there is a lot of diversity out there between all of us!! Great list!

  13. Wow! What a list. I am sure all of us can relate to this TBR pile!
