Recent Books Meme

I was tagged for this meme by Jessica at this terrific blog: The Bluestocking Society.  Thanks for tagging me, Jessica, because after following your link back to your blog, I realized I need to update my link to you as well as change my bloglines subscription to your feed.  I knew I was missing someone!

This meme is the brainchild of Amy at My Friend Amy.  Here it is:  

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 they go around the blogosphere.  Please come back to this post and leave a comment so I can see how the lists are changing.  Since this is Book Buzz…please keep your lists to titles released in 2007-2009.

Stars next to my additions …

When We Were Romans by Matthew Kneale
