message 1: by Amy (new)

Amy Bruno Thanks for the new additions, I've added them to my wishlist!


message 2: by Sherry (new)

Sherry Amy, thank you so much for putting this together. It helps us to get the word out about our books -- and gives me a nice, long "to read" list for the coming year. What a terrific lineup!


message 3: by Erika (new)

Erika Robuck I'm really excited about so much on this list, but I'm also thrilled about my own book, HEMINGWAY'S GIRL, due out in Sept. 2012 by NAL/Penguin. :)


message 4: by Moira (new)

Moira Russell 'The Chosen' was published in 1967.

Erika, I'm excited for you! It sounds fascinating. I'm definitely going to add it to my "to read" list.


message 6: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Huston I keep seeing The Chosen appearing in these lists as a new release -- it was actually released back in the 70's -- so I'm a wee bit confused.


message 7: by DeAnna (new)

DeAnna What a great list! So many great titles -- and I'm thrilled my own DANCING AT THE CHANCE is in the mix :)

Ditto here!


message 9: by Bettie☯ (new)

Bettie☯ Has anyone heard if CJ Sansom is to bring out a new book this year? Thanks.


message 10: by Orsolya (new)

Orsolya The Dressmaker and Lady of the Rivers are not 2012 releases... they are already out.


message 11: by Orsolya (last edited Feb 05, 2012 11:17AM) (new)

Orsolya Neither is The Darling Strumpet...

Put some on Lori
:O)

ETA - I see you have now added some titles however they all appear to be published before 2012.


message 14: by Astrid (new)

Astrid Oh, dear. I've selected more books than I will have time to read this year!


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Amy, would you like me to remove the books that were published before 2012?

No idea. Let's hope so!


message 17: by Sigrun (new)

Sigrun Until a year ago, I had never heard, or read about the four sisters who became queens in the 11th century. In this list, there are at least two more books on the subject. Nancy Goldstone's Four queens: the Provençal sisters who ruled Europe is a non-fiction book with some very nice illuminations, as well as fascinating historical data in it. I wish I'd had time and resources to look up some of the books she used as reference material. I guess I'd have to find a good university library for that.

Nancy has written other books on the history of the Middle Ages, some of them with her husband Lawrence Goldstone who has written numerous books himself.

message 20: by Anne (new)

Anne Sweazy-Kulju This list makes it so easy to choose my next read! A personal thank you to the persons who voted for my debut novel, "the thing with feathers," to be placed on this list.
*I hope you will consider recommending "BODIE" for next year's list--releases next month!
Thanks again, Anne Sweazy Kulju


♥ Marlene♥ The Lady of the rivers was published in 2011 as mentioned and the The White Princess is not even out yet. The dress maker as someone mentioned looking at the hardcover edition it says 2012 so I think that one is good.
I very much like this list so thank you.
You want me to delete those 2?


message 22: by Steve (new)

Steve 90% white women writers, writing about white women. How interesting is that?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You can, of course, make your own additions.
