Anissa None of these debuts are on my list but I do appreciate the post on what's new this week. I'm reading Cocoa Beach by Beatriz Williams & Paloma by Kristine Kathryn Rusch this week. Apparently I want both to step back in time & laze about a beach with some historical fiction & walk around the future with some science fiction on the Moon.


message 7: by Amanda (new)

Amanda I'm reading Bel Canto (definitely not new) while I wait for some of the newer titles on my Wish List to hit my local library. My hubby has declared that I shouldn't buy ALL the books...


Erin *Proud Book Hoarder* I have Killers of the Flower Moon I need to get to soon :)


message 9: by Hari (new)

Hari Brandl I hope "Killers of the Flower Moon" gets discounted soon (I don't like paying full price for books anymore) or comes to a library near me sooner.

It looks like a good one. I want to read it too

Just requested it from my library and I am 2nd in line :-)
Now I just have to clear out my currently reading stack so I can get to it when I receive it


message 11: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer None of those are books or authors I've ever heard of (except David Baldacci but I haven't read any of his books), and I have no interest in any of them that were listed in the post again :(

I have 2 books I'm waiting for to come out in paperback this year (one comes out next month, other is August), 1 that gets a release right to paperback without the long wait in November, and then 3 books that come out in Hardback this year, that I will have to wait a year for the paperback releases to buy :(

Books are so spendy now days :( The "local" library wants to charge a $100 fee to us because we live in the country outside of town, and after Borders shut down so many years back we lost our 1 and only book store within the 3 local towns here so it's hard to find books in my area unless I buy online :(


message 12: by Tracy (new)

Tracy Griffin I'm really loving NINTH CITY BURNING and AN EMBER IN THE ASHES


message 13: by Lizzie (new)

Lizzie I can't wait to read this The Shadow Land by Elizabeth Kostova
