Every week I use the TBR Thursday to show everyone my newest books and to confront myself with my inability to lower my TBR.
There are, once again, quite some books that made their way to my shelves. Truth be told, I feel like it's not entirely my own fault this week. All new ARCs, but I finally got approved for some books I requested a long time ago, so they hardly really count for this week. I just tell myself this to make me feel better. Next week is the last week of my vacation, so I hope to get some reading done. I'm a bit behind on my ARCs, but it's already better than last week.
TBR pile currently stands at 175. (+5)
(Netgalley ARCs at 58 (+6))
I thought 'Interesting this biography of Ivan Pavlov, I should get it!' This was all before I found out it's 842 pages long! 842! For a biography!
Undertow I luckily got with a different cover, one that looks less like it's going to be a romance. I still hope that it's going to be a good book.
The Secrets of life and death, Seventh Heaven and Children of the tide all sounded very interesting. I'm looking forward to read them.
I was interesting in The Genome, because I know a lot of people who really enjoyed Night Watch so I was very curious about this author.
The Three Body Problem is Chinese SF, that sounded so interesting I now really want to read it.
Space Penguins Galaxy Race is definitely a children's book but it had my at the tagline of 'In space no one can hear you flap'
Last but not least, Life at the speed of light is written by Craig Ventor, of whom I've heard quite a lot in my lessons on the Human Genome Project wrote this book on genomics and I find that as a biomedical scientist an interesting topic.
