Recent Acquisitions XI

I feel like such a book glutton. But this post covers the past couple of weeks, not just one. Not everything is pictured; some went straight to my house rather than to the dorm.

For review:
Big Egos by S.G. Browne (publisher's blog tour)
See my review here.

The Rose Throne by Mette Ivie Harrison (thanks, Confessions of a Book Addict!)

From Honors College reading groups:
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

From World Literature Today Book Club:
I came for Lam's book and left with 9 more.
Birds of Paradise Lost by Andrew Lam
Limit by Frank Schatzing
Translated sci-fi!
The Last Man Standing by Davide Longo
Translated sci-fi!
Tears in Rain by Rosa Montero
Translated sci-fi!
Without a Net by Ana Maria Shua
Translated...I'm not exactly sure what genre!, but Shua's been on my wishlist for a connection with spec fiction.
Waiting for the Barbarians by J.M. Coetzee
Another one that's long been on the wishlist.
Falling to Earth by Kate Southwood
Pleasure by Gabriele D'Annunzio
Record of Miraculous Events in Japan: The Nihon ryoiki
Sensibility: An Introduction by Janet Todd

Purchased for class:
Memory in Culture by Astrid Erll
The Ghosts of Berlin by Brian Ladd
Tourists of History by Marita Sturken

Purchased used:
Evelina by Fanny Burney
The Children of the Abbey by Regina Maria Roche
18th century gothic!!! And I don't believe there's even a modern edition, so I thought this was quite a steal, despite its condition, for $1.
Wylder's Hand by J. Sheridan Le Fanu
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell
Memories and Visions of Paradise: Exploring the Universal Myth of a Lost Golden Age by Robert Heinberg
