Happy reading in 2010.


  1. Oh wow, there are a lot of great titles in there! I too am looking forward to many of these!

  2. Ooh, lots of good ones on that list. I didn't realize Joanne Harris was coming out with a new book this year.

  3. Thanks so much for these great titles. A few I had on mist wish list already, but there are a few more that I've added.

  4. A LOT of great books here. I like the sound of A Riot of Goldfish, and the Ellison book has to be good. The Changeling looks intriguing, and The Hand that First Held Mine sounds very touching.

    Oh, my wishlist is groaning!

  5. Nice list! I'm waiting on quite a few of those titles too.

  6. What a great list of books, it's hard to chose just one. Have a great week.

  7. I have a few of these on my list, too. I'm going to have to check the others out. Thanks for participating!

  8. The Oe looks wonderful. The McEwan is one of the few books I know about for early 2010 that I didn't snag at ALA. Oh well, IT WILL BE MINE, one way or the other! :-)

  9. Secrets of Eden is one that I must read!

  10. Looks like you've got your reading for the year under wraps!

  11. I literally cannot walk in to my neighborhood Barnes and Noble without salivating...but I usually end up with something by Kevin Henkes instead. I truly appreciate your post; now I just need to find some "me" time to read!

  12. What a handy list! Now I can stalk my library's catalogue, and as soon as a title appears as 'ordering', put it on hold and read it first! lol Thanks for putting it all together. :D

  13. I have an award for you! The Blogger Buddie award.

  14. Interesting list of new arrivals! So Ian McEwan's new book is coming out :) I read Maggie O'Farrell's 'After You'd Gone' a few years back and liked it very much though I felt sad in the end. I didn't know anyone else who read Maggie O'Farrell and so it was nice to see information on her new book in your post :) Will look forward to reading her new book.

  15. I'm really looking forward to Elise Blackwell's new book. Loved her An Unnatural History of Cypress Parish.

  16. Thanks for participating in The Saturday Network! And nice list. I haven't heard of many of these, but they all look good and some very unique. :)

  17. Great Titles!!! I will definitely be looking into reading a few of these for sure! checking you out from Take the Journey Challenge! Shirley

  18. Oh my! Ian McEwan has a new book??? I'm excited! And I like the cover :)
