Some of my pre publication can't-wait-to-read selections:
 

 



Mornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa February 2, 2010




  




Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea by Barbara Demick  February 4, 2010

I've wanted to know about life in North Korea since I was a child. I'm really looking forward to this one.






 

Isa and May by Margaret Forster February4, 2010

I enjoyed Keeping the World Away very much.   








 

Rhyming Life and Death by Amos Oz February 4, 2010

Don't you just love a cover with books or libraries on it?





 

Have read several of his books and loved them all; Black Box, My Michael, The Hill of Evil Counsel, A Perfect Peace, etc.








 




 Jephte's Daughter by  Naomi Ragen February 2010





 


 The Holy City By Patrick McCabe February 2010

I read Winterwood. Chillingly good psychological suspense.


 






So Much for That by Lionel Shriver March18, 2010

I loved We Need to Talk About Kevin and just won two of her other novels; Double Fault, and A Perfectly Good Family.



 




This woman deserves better covers than these. I wouldn't buy this book based on the cover. The other one is no great shakes either.






 

 Curiosity by Joan Thomas March 30, 2010-

Reading By Lightning, her first novel, won the Commonwealth Prize for Best First Book.




 



Pearl of China by Anchee Min March 30, 2010-

The author, who was forced to denounce her in her young years, fictionalizes a Chinese woman's friendship with Pearl Buck in this story.

I enjoyed several Of Pearl Buck's books when I was young, including The Good Earth trilogy.

 



The Lessons by Naomi Alderman 15 April 2010 

Her first book, Disobedience, won the Orange Prize for New Writers in 2006. I loved it.
