These are some of the books set for publication in fall 2013 that I would really, really like to read:
Silence: A Christian History by Diarmaid MacCulloch. 09/12/2013
United We Spy by Ally Carter. 09/17/2013
The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography by Alan Jacobs. 09/30/2013
One Summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson. 10/01/2013
Allegiant by Veronica Roth. 10/22/2013
Sycamore Row by John Grisham: Grisham’s latest is a sequel to A Time to Kill, his first book. 10/22/2013
We Are Water by Wally Lamb. 10/29/2013. I just finished Lamb’s The Hour I First Believed, and although I wouldn’t recommend it to everyone, I found it quite absorbing and insightful.
The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon by Alexander McCall Smith. 11/05/2013
Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando. 12/24/2013
And the one I’ve already read, thanks to Net Galley, due out September 10th, is Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein, a companion novel to Wein’s Code Name Verity. I can tell now that Rose Under Fire is an excellent read. Look for my review in September.
