Wishlist of Books from #BEA2015
Despite having acquired a pile of books that is likely taller than I am, and, arguably, being well supplied with unread books for the next two years… one of the things that happens at Book Expo is that I hear about other books that I can’t get my hands on, and am left to covet them.
I stare at my bounty of books a bit sullenly, in a “my bookshelf has nothing to wear,” unreasonable fit of pique. And so, in the days following BEA, I send forlorn emails to nice publicists, and put myself on library hold lists.
Here are this year’s books that got away from me. Please, nice publicists, take pity on me and send a galley my way? My review will include gratitude as well as giddiness and raves about a book I’m sure I’ll like.
Lair of Dreams– Libba Bray. A sequel to The Diviners. I loved The Diviners! This is the main one I’m after.
The Wrath and the Dawn– Renee Ahdieh. Retelling of Scheherezade? Yes, please!
Last Song Before Night– Ilana Meyer
The Clasp– Sloane Crossley. I like her essays, and I’m curious how she’ll handle fiction.
A Court of Thorns and Roses– Sarah J. Maas. Mercifully, the library has this one and I’ve got it on hold, so that particular book desire will be sated soon.
And there you have it… my list of books I’m after is actually pretty reasonable. For once. And the library should help.
But I am feeling severely whiny about having to wait til August for the new Libba Bray. Alas and wail away!
Also, every time I see Kaite Stover, I make a mental note that I need to start reading N.K. Jemisin, as Kaite’s the one who recommended.
