Book Buzz Meme

Apparently a little bit of my reminding, hinting, cajoling, and encouraging worked. I got tagged for the Book Buzz Meme! I’m going to go do my little happy dance, I’ll be right back…

Okay, I’m back. I did a little jig to Paralyzer, something that involved my butt moving and me looking VERY COOL IN THE MIRROR.

Here’s how it goes:

My Friend Amy says: I am going to list three categories of books. 3 MUST Read Books, 3 Keep Your Eyes on These, and 3 Look For These Soon. Keeping with the theme, I am going to tag at least 3 bloggers. They should put these same lists on their blog but SUBTRACT one book from each list and ADD one of their own. Then they should tag at least 3 more bloggers. It will be fun to see how the lists change as it goes around the blogosphere. Please come back to this post and leave a comment so I can see how the lists are changing as they go around the blogosphere. Since this is Book Buzz…please keep your lists to titles released in 2007-2009.

When I saw I was tagged for this, I was like Score! I’ve got a good one for the Look For These Soon.

I was tagged twice three times! so I’ve pasted the lists below. I was tagged by Heather from Age 30 A Year of Books, softdrink at Fizzy Beverage, and Rebecca at The Book Lady’s Blog (formerly readerville). I love you guys. Thanks for filling my neediness. 😉

Here’s Heather’s:

3 MUST Read Books:
The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry (here’s Julie’s review)
Matters of Faith by Kristy Keirnan (Heather’s review and author interview)
*Testimony by Anita Shreve

3 Keep Your Eyes on These:
Wife in the North, by Judith O’Reilly
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson (Heather’s note: I agree! I won a copy and it’s on the way now!)
*One More Year by Sana Krasikov

3 Look For These Soon:
Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson (Heather’s note: The 12th and final book in the Wheel of Time series, coming in 2009 – I can’t wait!)
*The Hour I First Believed by Wally Lamb

And here’s softdrink’s:


3 MUST Read Books:
We Disappear by Scott Heim
The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid
*The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

3 Keep Your Eyes on These:
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry
*No One You Know by Michelle Richmond

3 Look For These Soon:
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
In Hovering Flight by Joyce Hinnefeld
*The Given Day by Dennis Lehane

And here’s Rebecca’s:

3 MUST Read Books:
The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson
The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff
*The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton

3 Keep Your Eyes on These:
My Father’s Paradise by Ariel Sabar
The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry
*What Happened to Anna K. by Irina Reyn

3 Look For These Soon:
A Mercy by Toni Morrison (coming in November)–And no, I haven’t read this yet, but it’s not for lack of begging. Our Random House rep said Ms. Morrison usually writes right up to the deadline, so ARCs are not likely….but man, if I could get my hands on one….
Songs for the Missing by Stewart O’Nan
*Anathem by Neal Stephenson

SO, I’ve added new entries to each, for a total of six eight (one’s a duplicate) books that I came up with. My picks are the starred ones.

Did anyone see my special Look For These Soon? Wally Lamb has a new book coming out! What great news for all of who stalk him and wonder when he’ll write another book! Yay for us!

Now I’ll tag three people, but if I didn’t tag you, feel free to play along. If you play along without me tagging you, I’ll know to tag you in the future. 😉 I’ll tag Kristen at Book Club Classics, Chris at book-a-rama, and Don at Don’stuff (I don’t know if he does memes…but it’s worth a shot).
