Up Next: Books That I’m Excited About

I’m doing fairly well with my review copies. I’ve got a handful to read between now and this summer but overall, I try to be choosy with what I request or accept so my list of immediate “to-reads” is not that long.

These are the books that I am most excited about! I didn’t list Murakami’s Wind/Pinball because I already gushed about that one. I can’t skip an opportunity to mention it here again, though.

Okay, next up on my list:

The Last Bookaneer

The Last Bookaneer by Matthew Pearl, April 28, 2015
(Book pirates!)

The Last Leaves Falling

The Last Leaves Falling by Sarah Benwell, June 2, 2015
(A teen with ALS. A story of friendship and acceptance.)

Finders Keepers

Finders Keepers by Stephen King, June 2, 2015
(Book 2 of the Bill Hodges trilogy!)

The Summer of Good Intentions

The Summer of Good Intentions by Wendy Francis, July 7, 2015
(Cape Cod in the summer! Need I say more?)

Days of Awe

Days of Awe by Lauren Fox, August 4, 2015
(An exploration of marriage, motherhood and tragedy!)

What books are you anxious to get to?

Happy New Year to you all. Here’s to another year of reading!
