Did y’all here about this little book called Mockingjay that was released this week? Well, now that it’s out and most of us have read it, we can move on and start anticipating other books. So you get an extra category this week for me to share what books those are for me.
Looking Forward To:
(1) The Scorch Trials by James Dashner – Oct 12, 2010
The Scorch Trials is the follow up to The Maze Runner. If you are missing the kind of dystopian YA where kids are placed in life-threatening situations, I recommend this series. The Maze Runner left us with a pretty decent cliffhanger/twist, so I’m more than ready to find out what happens to Thomas next.
(2) Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert – Sept 23, 2010
This is a new translation by Lydia Davis. Her translation of Swann’s Way received a lot of praise when it was released (I have not read it because Proust scares me) and there is a lot of buzz surrounding this one as well. Madame Bovary is one of the classics that is highest on my TBR and I can’t wait to read this translation of it.
(3) One of Our Thursdays Is Missing by Jasper Fforde – March 8, 2010
This is the 6th Thursday Next book and I can’t wait to see what she gets up to now. And it is released on my birthday (Ben: hint, hint, wink, wink). I love Jasper Fforde’s strange, strange mind. I may have to appease myself with his Nursery Crime series until then.
And now on to the normal stuff.
(See what category it’s in? See? See?)
(I put this down for awhile for no reason and now I’m picking it back up)
