Until the past few years or so, I never browsed the “New Release” section of the bookstore. I was a bit of a classic literature snob I guess. How could these new-fangled books compare to those classics I enjoyed growing up? I mean, books these days. Sigh.
In the past few years, I have come out of my “I-have-little-children-and-no-me-time” coma, and have rekindled my book-love. I started reading Goodreads reviews and book blogs and found that some of these “new” books they were talking about sounded pretty appealing. I read a few, and then a few more, and what-do-you-know, I’m now one of those who finds herself anticipating new releases from some of my favorite authors! Wow!
The three books I’m most anticipating for this year are Fairest and Winter both part of the Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer and The Last Time We Say Goodbye, a stand-alone book by Cynthia Hand, author of the Unearthly Series. (You can register to win a signed copy HERE).
Yesterday, I downloaded the e-book form of Fairest and am already 2/3 of the way finished. It’s so good! Can’t wait to finish it and to read the other two when they come out!
How about you? Do you anticipate new releases? Who are your favorite authors?
