Here are some of the Fall 2011 releases that I am most looking forward to:
- I LOVE Haruki Murakami and his new book 1Q84 is coming out in October. Already a smash hit in Japan, this is the book I am most excited about.
- Tom Perrotta is also a favortie author of mine and his new book (out 8/30) The Leftovers looks good. It has a post-apocalyptic angle, and is already being made into an HBO series.
- Readers of this blog (and my other horror one) know that I enjoy books with zombies, so I am cautiously optimistic about Zone One by Colson Whitehead. I am not a huge Whitehead fan, but there is a lot of buzz on this title, and let's face it, if it has zombies and gets good reviews, I will read it.
- As I have mentioned before, I am also a sucker for any book that has a circus in it, especially a particularly macabre one. The Night Circus (9/13) by Erin Morgenstern fits the bill here, and it is getting great reviews
