  1. Definitely Mockingjay! Hunger Games is one of the best YA series out there and I can’t wait to see how Collins wraps it up.

  2. I like Allegra Goodman and haven’t read her in quite a while. It was good to see she has a new book out. Girl in Translation sounds like something I would like too.

  8. I’m looking forward to reading Justin Cronin’s The Passage. On a dare from his 9 yr. old daughter, who wanted her dad to write a book about a girl who saves the world, Cronin has written what some are calling an epic and a new horror classic.

  9. Love, love, love this blog! I’m reading “The Handbook of Lightning Strike Survivors,” by Michele Young-Stone. The story is both quirky and poignant, about two survivors who
    eventually find each other, after wading though the morass of emotional and physical injuries from being struck. Along the way the reader learns lots about lightning.

  10. I am looking forward to reading The Body of Death by Elizabeth George. I have enjoyed all of her previous books. I am anxious to learn how Inspector Lynley is doing after the death of his pregnant wife.

  11. Listening to “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” presently and the reader is excellent! Looking forward to listening to “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” this summer!!

  12. Look forward to “Girl in Translation” and the “Cookbook Collector”. The second piqued my interest because of my own extensive cookbook collection. Love summer reading.

  13. I’m intrigued by The Cookbook Collector — thank goodness it’s not out until July so I have time to clear out my stack of pending reads!

  14. I can’t wait for Sebastian Junger’s WAR because he’s been on NPR and I’ll see him again him June 1 when he’s at the Tattered Cover.

  15. I must agree with Betsy, “Invisible Bridge” looks good. However, nothing beats the excitement that I feel for “Mockingjay”. Hopefully, it will live up to it’s predecessors.

  16. I can’t wait to read “The Girl Who Fell From the Sky” by Heidi W. Durrow, winner of the Bellwether Prize for Fiction

  17. Loved Truly in “The Little Giant of Aberdeen County” by Baker. Truly is a rich character tapestry.

  18. I can’t wait to read Mockingjay. I just hope Suzanne Collins give us a nice ending and not some kind of a cliff hanger. I hate it when authors toy with my emotions like that. and of course it goes without saying:
    GO TEAM PEETA!

  19. I want to read Red Hook Road by Ayelet Waldman. It will probably have some sad moments but talk about great memories by loved ones.
