New Additions to TBR 2-6-10 (Ann Arbor Edition)

While I was on twitter the other day, Jen from Devourer of Books mentioned that every book she read recently took place in Ann Arbor. Naturally, I immediately wanted to read every single one and asked her which books they were. Most of you already know this, but for any newer readers, I grew up just outside of Ann Arbor* and then attended The University of Michigan for both undergrad and law school. I adore Ann Arbor and miss it very much. The only book I’ve really read that takes place there is Charles Baxter’s The Feast of Love. While reading it, I loved being able to accurately picture the story. So I decided that this week’s TBR post would feature those books that Jen mentioned.

The Weight of Heaven by Thrity Umrigar

Bad Things Happen by Harry Dolan

Dream House by Valerie Laken

*From the Detroit Metro Times: Dream House as a whole is an excellent portrait of “the stereotypes that distinguish posh Ann Arbor, backwoods Dexter, and Ypsilanti.” While I take offense to the label of my hometown as “backwoods”, I LOVE that it gets mentioned in a review and can’t wait to read about the stereotypes.
