Thursday Thirteen

Some of the Books that I am looking forward to in 2007. I never intended to do a Thursday Thirteen, but it is Thursday, so why not. There are likely more that I am not thinking about, as well there are some fantasy series that I am not super far in, but new books are coming out for, so I might be excited depending on how far I get with them. Sorry I have been so quiet. February is always my blah month. I do not even really feel inspired to come on the computer very much, but once the weather starts to improve I usually improve too. This February has been better than some years, because overall, we had a rather mild winter. Some others that could be on here are: the new Jasper Fforde book, the new George R.R. Martin book, the new J.V. Jones, the new In Death books, etc. I just have to get to where I have them all read up to that point... In other words, there are lots of fantasy books coming out this year. Let's not dwell on that... (That being said, I am not up to the point where I am ready for the new James Rollins book, but it is James Rollins! It doesn't matter where I am, I love his books.)

On with the list:

Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray

All in Together Girls by Kate Sutherland

Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult

Burning Bright by Tracy Chevalier

On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan

A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

Body Surfing by Anita Shreve

Last Girls of Pompeii by Kathryn Lasky

Fortune's Fool by Mercedes Lackey

Empire of Ivory by Naomi Novik

The Huntress by Susan Carroll
(maybe, what it is about still has not been revealed)

The Judas Strain by James Rollins


  1. I got a little turned off by Anita Shreve -- what do you think of her stuff?

  2. Okay, my comment isn't working. I said that I haven't read her last few books, so I am not sure what to think about her. I would read the others that I own before I buy this one.

  3. Nice list!! I'm hoping Nineteen Minutes will be worth waiting for. I was really disappointed with The Tenth Circle. Did you ever read it?

    I have a couple of others from you list on my TBR!

  4. I really didn't like The Tenth Circle, but I have liked the other books she has put out, so I have hope.

    I too cannot wait for Eclipse, having enjoyed Twilight and New Moon so much!

  6. Oh dear, you just given me a whole new list of books to find out about. I read Twilight and don't feel the need to read the next two.

  7. Stephanie: I personally am looking forward to Libba Bray more, but I think that the Twilight series has potential. I liked the first two books, lets hope it doesn't fizzle...

    booklogged: There are some good authors listed there. A couple I have never read before but think their books look interesting. Twilight was good, I will read the rest of the series, but I don't believe I like it as much as some other people.
