Anticipation January 3, 2008
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?
Santa was good to me this year. I received several new books and a couple gift cards to Borders and amazon.com. I can hardly wait to dive into my new books. Some of my choices were heavily influenced by other book blogs that I’ve come to enjoy and rely on for suggestions.
My most anticipated books of 2008 are:
The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
The Giver by Lois Lowry (I want to pre-read it before giving it to my 10 year old)
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan
Mrs. Bridge by Evan S. Connell
Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
And I’m waiting for these to come out in paperback:
Peony in Love by Lisa See
Gifted by Nikita Lalwani
What books are you most anticipating this year?
