What 2011 books have been your favorites? What are you looking to forward to most?
For myself, 2011 has been an interesting year, I try to read a variety of old and new books. Most of the time I have no idea what is coming out! I guess I don't have my finger on the pulse of the publishing world. Just print it and I'll read it.
I did read a couple of good 2011 releases though. The Paris Wife by Paula McClain (audiobook), a fictional look at Hemingway's first wife Hadley and the years they spent in Paris. A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley (audiobook) is the third Flavia DeLuce mystery. I haven't put up the reviews for either because I'm waiting for Audiobook Week. Susan Juby's Home to Woefield was a definite favorite. The Sherlockian came out in Decemeber but I read it this year so close enough.
I'm really looking forward to Bossypants by Tina Fey and The Map of Time by Felix J Palma. I've heard good things about Tina's book. I'm dying to read it. The Map of Time sounds intriguing, H.G. Wells investigates an incident of supposed time travel. Sounds completely plausible. heh.
While perusing the Book Expo America Showcase I found this two that I might be interested in, Norah by Cynthia G Neale and Daughters of Isis by June White. NetGalley is featuring Spellbound, I love the cover. From the Book@BEA (Edelweiss) site, Bury Your Dead by Louise Penny looks interesting, as does juvenile title The Pirate's Daughter by Eve Bunting and non-fiction Courage and Croissants by the Saxe-Roux's.
So how about you? What are you looking forward to reading?
