Tess is a little strong for some, but I think she is such a great writer that I am hooked on her books.

Great list, Kathy! Left Neglected was very good, you'll enjoy it. I also want to read the books by Kim Edwards, Geraldine Brooks, and Alan Bradley. I have to look up a few of these others. But not Tess Gerritsen...she freaks me out (a lot).

Good idea about the rereads. I am going to give them a look, too. I may not completely reread them, but I do need to refresh my memory before the new one.

Hi Kathy, I have it ordered too. Unfortunately, the stores aren't treating it like Harry Potter: no same day deliveries from the online stores. I have it on order to arrive on the 25th but I also have it on reserve at a local independent store, but I told them I want it on the morning of the 24th. I'll call them the day before, and if they don't/won't have it, and they said they might not until late in the day or the next day, I'll start calling the other independent stores in my area. Last night I just finished my rereads of the first two books. I can't wait!!!


message 15: by Kathy (new)

Kathy  (readr4ever) | 1853 comments Lisa, are you gearing up for Mockingjay? I have it ordered from Amazon, but I didn't check to see when it would actually arrive at my house. I have a feeling it won't be until the 25th.


message 14: by Kathy (new)

Kathy  (readr4ever) | 1853 comments Gundula, Doomsday Book is still my favorite one of them. Wise decision on waiting for All Clear to come out before reading Blackout.


message 13: by Gundula (new)

Gundula | 2757 comments Mod
I've only read "Doomsday Book," which I loved. I have "Blackout" on my to-read list, but as the reviews state that it sort of stops in the middle, I think I will wait until "All Clear" comes out, I know I would be furious having to wait for the ending. There are times when I think traveling back in time to do research would be great, but look at all the problems etc. that it can cause. Also, personally, I know that I could not and would not be able to just sit and observe. For example, if someone sent me back in time to let's say Germany before the Nazis came to power, I would not be able to simply observe, I would try to prevent them getting into power etc., even if that were not allowed. Just like in "The Doomsday Book" Kyra cannot stop the plaque, but she does try to help as much as possible.

Gundula, it's related in that the books I mentioned all deal with time traveling historians from the same London research center in the future. Mr. Dunsworthy is present in all of them, too, plus the "net" where they come in and out of the past. However, I do think that you could read any one of them without having read the others, with the exception of All Clear, which is actually the 2nd part of Blackout. Have you read some of them, Gundula?

Jo I'm sure Linger comes out next week in the UK. I have it preordered and can't wait to get my hands on it! Same with Mockingjay. That is out at the end of August here as far as i know.

Kathy, is "Doomsday Book" related to "Blackout?" I always thought that it sort of stood on its own.


message 7: by Kathy (new)

Kathy  (readr4ever) | 1853 comments There have been so many great new books so far this year. I, too, am counting the days until Mockingjay comes out. Linger, Maggie Stiefvater's sequel to Shiver, comes out, oh my, it came out today. I was near a Border's and had no idea it was out today, or I would have zoomed in there and bought it. Well, there's always tomorrow, Scarlett. I'm, also, looking forward to Connie Willis' part two of the latest time traveling historians, All Clear, will be out this fall (I think September). The first part of it, Blackout, was out in February and was wonderful. The first two books in this series, Doomsday Book and To Say Nothing of the Dog, are two of the best books I've ever read.

Lee, I have loved all 4 of the Spellman books but so far the 4th is my very favorite. If you need some hilarity, definitely read that book! And I love what's going on with the characters! Can't wait to talk about it with you.


message 3: by Lee, Mod Mama (new)

Lee (LeeKat) | 3959 comments Mod
Wow, I didn't realize that Mockingjay would be out so soon. That's fantastic! I look forward to reading it too. I'm not quite as crazy over the series as you are but the books are certainly enjoyable.

Thanks for the info on the Lisa Lutz books. I think I will go ahead and read the fourth book soon because they make me laugh so much.


message 2: by Lisa, Co-Mod Comfort Reader Extraordinaire (new)

Lisa Vegan (LisaVegan) | 3840 comments Mod
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Third in a trilogy. Due out 8/24 this year. I'm going nuts.

Can't be assured of a copy on the 24th so ordered a one day shipment (shipping costs much more than the book) for it to arrive on the 25th.

But if I can get a copy on the 24th, I will, even if there's not time to cancel the book that is scheduled to arrive on the 25th.

I also have it on reserve at the library but they have a lousy track record about having books ready for borrowing day of, or even having it past on order status.

Have called every bookstore, independent and chain, and none can guarantee having it the morning of the 24th.

Yes, I am crazy. ;-)

I'm prepared to take the 24th and 25th off to get/wait for the book and to start reading it, finishing it as soon as I can.

Lee, I think Lisa Lutz has said there will be at least one more but not until at least 2012. Book 4 ends in such a satisfying way that, while I hope there are more books, and I think there will be, if it ended there, I'd be happy with what's been done with the story.
