For this question, I brought up my TBR list, which may or may not be MASSIVE.
1. The Patterns of Paper Monsters by Emma Rathbone – Even before I read the description for this book, I wanted to read it based on the title. I pictured a darkened room and a child lying in bed with a flashlight as shadows crept across the walls. There’s something sort of spooky about it, too. The monsters are made out of paper, but they’re still monsters.
2. How to Say Goodbye in Robot by Natalie Standiford – This doesn’t even need an explanation. Robots. Robot Language. ‘Nuff said. (note: I know the book isn’t really about robots)
3. The Sweetness of Salt by Cecilia Galante – this title sounds so poetic to me, but it rankles my sometimes overly logical mind. “Salt isn’t sweet!” it screams. I want to read the book and find the reason for the sweetness.
4. The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery – this one gets to me like #3. “What is so elegant about a hedgehog? I must know!” (see, I really do take everything way too literally at times)
5. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan – the whole idea of a forest like this freaks me out.
And because I can’t pick just five, here’s an extra one:
Motherless Brooklyn by Jonathan Lethem – This title actually makes me sad because I picture the entire borough of Brooklyn to be full of orphans.
