Spring Books! (Or I Want Them NOW!)

December 4, 2009

It was seventy degrees here yesterday. Seventy! That’s crazy. Today it’s going to be fifty.

It feels like spring. Do you think we will just skip winter and go right into spring? I am probably just wishing because a) cold is no fun and b) it seems like there are tons of good books coming out in the spring.

Like:

Could you just DIE? I mean, hello! The tagline alone is just enough to sell the book. I heard about this when it first sold, and then I kind of forgot about it, and assumed it wouldn’t be out for forever. But now it’s on my radar again, and even though now it’s only a few months until it comes out, it still seems like further away than before!

What do you think Carrie was like in high school???? Was she dorky? Cool? Did she dress the same? Did she have all sorts of man problems even back then? We will have to wait to find out. Sigh. The good news is I have the whole series of Sex and the City on DVD, so I can just watch those while I wait.

I saw this one on Meg Cabot’s website under her upcoming adult books, although she hadn’t listed a description until a couple of days ago. This one is about vampires. Gasp! I don’t like vampires. Bella and I will just have to agree to disagree. But…I might be tempted to change my mind on my vampire stance since it’s Meg Cabot. Really looking forward to this one!

I love Sarah, and the concept of this one is adorable – a seventeen-year-old girl’s cell phone breaks, and she finds out she can only call her fourteen-year-old self. Can’t wait!

What books are YOU looking forward to (this spring or anytime)? Also, all this talk of books has reminded me I need to try and revive my book club. It never quite took off, hmm…

Anyway! Back soon with my promised entry about nanowrimo…

More later,
xx

    I am seriously, truly and ridiculously excited about the new Meg Cabot book — she’s my favorite author, and I can’t wait to see what her take on the world of vampires is like! 🙂 I’m an unabashed fan of Twilight, I’ll admit it, so I’m not disappointed that she’s expanding into the trend, too.

    And The Carrie Diaries is sure to be awesome! The cover alone gets me!

    Lauren,

    Oooh! The Carrie Diaries looks amazing! the cover looks totally awesome. Gimme a Call looks great too. Hmm…what books am I looking forward to this spring…Oh! Lisi Harrison’s These Boots Are Made For Stalking. I love her clique series. It’s about the middle-school alphas and there’s tons of drama. Anyway, I’m on chapter nine of Devon Delaney Should Totally Know Better! It is seriously riveting! I love it! You have to make a longer series! Plzzzzzzzz? At least think about it. It’ll definietly sell 🙂 Bye! 😀
