Welcome to Day #23 of the April A to Z Challenge, where participants are challenged to create a post every day (except Sundays) corresponding to the appropriate letter of the alphabet. If you’d like to learn more, hit the badge on my sidebar.
I’ll be posting about bookish topics each day of the challenge. Here’s today’s post on books that I’m anxiously waiting on:
Some people count down the days until a movie comes out, or until concert tickets go on sale. . . I count down the days until books will be released! Here are five titles that I’m anxiously waiting on:
May 27: The Tastemakers: Why We’re Crazy for Cupcakes but Fed Up with Fondue by David Sax–I love reading about food and cooking and how the way we cook and eat reflects culture. I can’t wait to dig into this book!
June 3: Summer House With Swimming Pool by Herman Koch–The Dinner was one of the most thought-provoking novels I read last year. I didn’t like any of the characters in it, yet I still find myself thinking about it months later. I’m eager to see what Koch has in store for us with this new title.
June 17: Nantucket Sisters by Nancy Thayer–Nancy Thayer is one of my automatic authors—everytime she publishes a new book I’ll read it. I’ve got to admit that I enjoyed her earlier books a lot more than her more recent titles, but I can still count on her for a good summer beach read. Just looking at the cover of this one puts me in a summer mood!
July 8: Landline by Rainbow Rowell–Eleanor & Park got me hooked back into reading YA, and I also really enjoyed Fangirl. Landline is her latest adult novel. I really can’t wait!
October 14: Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult–I’m a huge Jodi Picoult fan, but her last couple of books have been disappointments for me. I’m really hoping that I love this one-I need a good Jodi Picoult fix!
How about you? What books are you waiting on? Please share!
