Monday Discussion: Looking Toward 2011

Last week's Monday Discussion asked what the best book your read this year was.  Click here for the full comments, but here is a quick list of the responses:
Thanks to all the participants.  Now on to this week's discussion.  Let's stop looking back at 2010 and look ahead to 2011.  Publishers are already starting to advertise 2011 releases. I already have patrons coming in clamoring for titles that don't come out until the end of March.

So for today's Monday discussion, what titles are you most looking forward to?  Click here, here, here, here, here, here, and here to take a peak at some of the biggest titles due out this Winter and Spring.  These links go through April 2011 and include fiction and nonfiction.  I will compile your responses and post them next week.

For me, some of my favorite lighter mystery writers like Lisa Lutz and Alan Bradley have new books coming out in the next few months.  Jasper Fforde will also return with a new Thursday Next book in March, while Orson Scott Card is releases a new contemporary fantasy that I am excited about.  And I can't forget my own book which will be out sometime in late spring/early summer 2011 (click here for the most up to date information as it becomes available).  Use the links in the previous paragraph to check out what is coming and let the rest of us know what you are excited about.

Finally, for those who are interested, I also posted my list of the best horror books of 2010 on RA for All: Horror.  I will have my best list of everything I read in 2010 posted here at RA for All later this week.  I have the list whittled down to 12 and have to make 2 more painful cuts from the final list.  After today however, RA for All will go off of its regular Monday through Friday schedule until the New Year.  I will continue to post over the holidays just not on a reliably daily basis.

I cannot wait for the new Kate Atkinson book, "Started Early, Took My Dog."

I must say that the book I'm looking forward to most is a sequel to The Horror Readers' Advisory written by a certain RA for All blogger! I'm not just saying that because this is your blog. I really liked the first volume and hope the second is as successful and enjoyable.

A few things I can't wait for - The Peach Keeper - Sarah Addison Allen's new book (I sure hope it's better than her last one); Red Herring without mustard - the new Flavia de Luce Mystery; and the third book in Maggie Stiefvater's werewolf series titled Forever.

The Janus Stone by Emily Griffiths -- I've been waiting for this one for months. It's the second in a series about a forensic archeologist (whatever that is), but the first one (the name escapes me) was pretty good.
