F1Wild I've been searching around and not seen a similar thread (if there is one this could be combined), but there are a few books on the horizon or just released that I cannot wait to read. Here's a few of mine:
Pearl of China by Anchee Min (please click on Kindle request!)
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer (also please click on Kindle request)

THE SCARLET LION
THE KING'S GRACE these are three of the new books I just received from Amazon & BN. Lately I have been reading English history of the Plantagenets, Tudors and Stuarts.

Halfbakedbeans MacKinnon | 1 comments definitely in agreement on Mockingjay. Also looking forward to Linger, and now of course The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner. All of which come out this summer!! Yay!


message 7: by L (new)

L (audinosbiitch) I wonder if there is a Mysterious Benedict Society #4...


message 8: by Marisa (new)

Marisa Atkinson (totesmarisa) | 28 comments I cannot WAIT for Marisha Pessl's Night Film. At last check it was supposed to be released in late 2010 but that's the most I've heard. Maybe it's elusiveness is feeding my frenzy...


message 9: by Eden (new)

Eden (tsalagi_writer) | 210 comments I'm really looking forward to Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones. It comes out April 6th or 7th. I already pre-ordered it from Amazon.


message 10: by Lisa (new)

Lisa | 437 comments Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay...I love his books!


message 11: by Jayme (new)

Jayme (jayme-reads) Oh my god! That was the the first book that popped into my head when I read this thread title, Lisa. Nobody ever talks about Kay though. I'm the one and only person on the library waiting list for when the book comes out. We have 240 books in common, that's a record for me!


message 12: by Terence (new)

Terence (spocksbro) The Crippled God, Steven Erikson - after 9 books we finally get to see how the world ends (or doesn't).

Can't wait for the US edition so it'll be the UK version in August.

message 16: by Bridgit (new)

Erika (erikareading) I'm waiting for my turn at Beatrice and Virgil: A Novel (31 of 35 holds...yikes!) and for my library to get their copies of Will Grayson, Will Grayson and Instructions. I also requested Union Atlantic which just came out in February, I think.


message 22: by F1Wild (new)

F1Wild I nominated it for a Category 2 read for May - will you be voting for it?

Jayme...I'm number 16 of 19, so there's a bit more interest here. I might just end up buying it, though so I don't have to wait!

Katie Flora Wilkins (kflora) Me too, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest - Stieg Larsson


message 32: by [deleted user] (new)

Eleven by Mark Watson, because, despite their lack of popularity, his other novels are wonderful.

Have you read any other Chris Moore books and if so which ones would you recommend?


message 34: by Katie (new)

Katie (katieisallbooked) | 109 comments I just found out that Sophie Kinsella is publishing another book in the Shopaholic series soon. It's one of my favorite series ever and I'm excited!


message 35: by Alex (new)

Alex F1, not that you asked me, but the wide consensus I've heard is that you should start with Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal. Dirty Job and that one about the thing get more mixed reviews.

I've only read Lamb; found it enjoyable if not life-changing.


message 36: by F1Wild (new)

F1Wild Cheers, Alex! I downloaded a sample onto my Kindle and will take a lookie quite soon.


message 37: by F1Wild (new)

F1Wild I'm looking forward to Glorious (a must read for The Help fans) and Girl in Translation.


message 38: by Kate (new)

Kate (kshiv) | 27 comments I am anxiously awaiting Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest and Lover Mine. I requested them early from the library a month ago but I know I'll end up buying them anyway. I am most ready for Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris. The only bad thing is I will read each one in a day and then have the "day after Christmas" letdown. Oh and Mockingjay. Man, I am going to be so broke.

Marti (marjay) | 985 comments Sizzling Sixteen is coming soon!!!

It's supposed to launch for Kindle on May 1st (on pre-order now), but there are seven 5-star reviews (maybe the authors advance readers?? Here's a few bits from Amazon:
McFadden, in her powerful seventh novel, tells the story of Easter Bartlett as she journeys from the violent Jim Crow South to the promise of the Harlem Renaissance and the civil rights movement. Along the way, Easter forms relationships with both products of McFadden's imagination and actual historical figures...McFadden interweaves fiction with the historic period of the Harlem Renaissance in this novel about a woman's struggle against hate and disappointment.


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

Im most excited about The Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, #1) by Cassandra Clare


message 44: by Kate (new)

Kate (kshiv) | 27 comments I forgot about the new Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child book coming in May. It's a Pendergast novel. Anyone who likes thrillers should check out these books. They are fantastic.


message 45: by Alicia (new)

Alicia (kalypso) | 102 comments I just started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and I now know why everyone is so excited for the new one to come out!

Oooh...that sounds good! I loved The Help and just finished another book set in New York, so this sounds really appealing. I'll have to be on the lookout for Glorious.
