Alrighty, so my reading lists are going to be influenced by new releases!
Well, for starters, on September 26, Mary Lawson (a Canadian author) has a new book coming out. The author of "Crow Lake", I was very excited to see The Other Side of the Bridge coming out.
Then, I have to read a David Gemmell book on Troy in preparation for his new book. The one I have to read is Lord of the Silver Bow. If anyone has not noticed, I adore Arthur and Troy as my mythological/fantastic historical fiction. The sequel, Shield of Thunderis out October 24.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants is getting book 4, out in the new year. Save your Christmas money for this one. I plan to reread the first three books in preparation because last time I read them, I borrowed them, this time I will own all four of them. I also heard rumours that she has an adult book coming out in the fall.
At the end of November a new Jane mystery by Stephanie Barron is coming out. I really need to get trucking on her, because while I enjoy her books, I have been a little scarce in reading them! The new book is titled Jane and the Barque of Frailty. I think it is book 6. That means I have to read, you know what, I will keep that between me and the book store... I strongly suggest them, hey, you might even try reading the actual Jane Austen as well... wouldn't that be fun?
There is also the new Sara Donati book out in the fall, Queen of Swords. She is another one of the authors that I really really like... I just have some catching up to do! *braces herself* I personally have had better luck with her than Diana Gabaldon. (Don't hurt me.) And, she announced somewhere, probably her blog, that there will be one more book after that. (The second book takes place partly in CANADA! Yes, I am loyal to my country.)
I am so excited to also point out that David Adams Richards, one of my absolute FAVOURITE Canadian authors is putting out a new book! The new books will be out in September, and I got so excited I pulled out a book by him this morning. I just love him. Not that I don't love a million other authors, but anyways. The book is called The Friends of Meager Fortune. I am beside myself in excitement.
And that is just SOME of the books I am excited about. There is also The Thirteenth Tale, a new book by Mark Haddon (The Curious Incident of the Dog....) called A Spot of Bother, a new Barbara Hambly, a new Sebastian Faulks, Shopaholic strikes again in the New Year (this time with a baby!), and Juliet Mariller releases a young adult book (I have her Sevenwaters trilogy to read) called Wildwood Dancing in the New Year as well.
Right, so I am going to be busy this month trying to get stuff out of the way in anticipation of new releases.
