Weekly Geek #12

This week’s meme:

1. In your blog, list any books you’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet. If you’re all caught up on reviews, maybe you could try this with whatever book(s) you finish this week.

2. Ask your readers to ask you questions about any of the books they want. In your comments, not in their blogs. Most likely, people who will ask you questions will be people who have read one of the books or know something about it because they want to read it.

3. Later, take whichever questions you like from your comments and use them in a post about each book. I’ll probably turn mine into a sort of interview-review. Link to each blogger next to that blogger’s question(s).

4. Visit other Weekly Geeks and ask them some questions!

Autobiography of a FaceI am currently reading Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy.  Since I’m caught up on my reviews, I figure I can try a slight variation on this meme and just ask my readers which book I should read next! If you’ve read from the list below, let me know if you think I should read it next, or if you think I should just skip these 7 books completely and read something completely new! Thanks for playing along!

But here is my to-read pile.

1. The History of Love (Nicole Krauss)

2. The Hoax (Clifford Irving)

3. The Secret Life of Houdini (William Kalush and Larry Soloman)

4. Allensworth, The Freedom Colony (Alice C. Royal)

5. The Big Over Easy (Jasper Fforde)

6. Fly By Night (Frances Hardinge)

7. A Confederacy of Dunces (John Kennedy Toole)
