Last week we talked about the books you liked best from 2007. So this week, what with it being a new year, and all, we’re looking forward….
What new books are you looking forward to most in 2008? Something new being published this year? Something you got as a gift for the holidays? Anything in particular that you’re planning to read in 2008 that you’re looking forward to? A classic, or maybe a best-seller from 2007 that you’re waiting to appear in paperback?
I've already posted my reading resolutions and an extensive pool of books and authors for several reading challenges I'll be participating in. I'm excited about many of these books. And my latest book stack; I'm very excited about all of those.
Otherwise, I find myself looking forward to a few that have yet to be published:
We Are Now Beginning Our Descent by James Meek, which will be out in time for Mother's Day.
The Eternal Husband by Dostoevsky, which should be out soon. I love that cover!
The People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks, which is actually just out this week, but I have to wait for my next gift card before I can order it. Bummer.
