This is not really a meme but something the ladies over at Book Smugglers do and it seems like an interesting way to spread awareness about books so… here are some books that I am dying to read:
Ironskin – Tina Connolly
Coming from Tor/Forge Fall 2012
This is a steampunk retelling of Jane Eyre.
Yes, you read it right. Seriously. It involves fairies, curses and a potentially sexy Rochester. I can’t wait to sink my fingers into it. We all know how I felt about Jane so let’s hope I like this retelling better.
Royal Street – Suzanne Johnson
Coming from Tor on April 12th
So, this one has pixies. And a kick ass heroine. And werewolves, vampires and all other delicious accoutrements of an urban fantasy…I’m not too sure about the romance but we’ll see as I have a copy from Net Galley. Yes, it’s on Net Galley. Go get it.
Vessel – Sarah Beth Durst
Coming from Margaret K. McElderry Books in September
This one is all about the cover. I am in love with the cover and seriously, do you blame me? Look at it.
A History of the World in Ten and a Half Chapters – Julian Barnes
Published June 15th, 2011
My professor in my World Lit class recommended this and dude, how can you resist that title? I can’t.
Won Ton: A Cat Tale Told Entirely in Haiku – Lee Wardlaw
Published February 15th, 2011 by Henry, Holt and Company
It’s from the viewpoint of a cat. In haiku. I don’t think you can go wrong with that. Seriously.
The House of Sleeping Beauties – Yasunari Kawabata
Published March 5th, 2004 by Oxford University Press
Cuz sometimes a girl needs some Japanese lit to make life go around. I love stories like these. They are surreal, magical and just so damned intriguing.
