I think Girl in Translation & Invisible Bridge look good.

Just put a hold on Mockingjay. Must say that I am like everyone else in that this is the most anticipated book this summer for me. A bunch of my favorites have been coming out this spring…Kim Harrison, Charlene Harris, and Patricia Briggs all have new books in there series.
Just put a hold on “Mockingjay”. Must say that I am like everyone else in that this is the most anticipated book this summer for me. A bunch of my favorites have been coming out this spring…Kim Harrison, Charlene Harris, and Patricia Briggs all have new books in there series.
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.
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.
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.
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!
The Passage by Justin Cronin
This book, a futuristic fable about death row inmates transformed into vampires
by a government-spawned virus, was inspired by the author’s young daughter who
told him to write a book about “a girl who saved the world.” (JUNE)
The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender
On the eve of her ninth birthday, Rose Edelstein, bites into her mother’s homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother’s emotions in the cake. (JUNE)
Stiltsville by Susanna Daniel
Frances Ellerby is so captivated by Stiltsville, a community of houses built on pilings in the middle of Biscayne Bay, that she marries a man
who lives in one. (AUGUST)
