Monday Discussion: Spring Preview

Despite the temperature refusing to budge over the 40 degree mark here in Illinois, Spring is coming this week.  I thought this would be a good time to look ahead to the books that are coming out soon.

So for today's Monday Discussion, I want to know the spring titles you are most excited about.

Don't know what's on the horizon?  Click here for RA Online's archive of Hot Prospects for 2013.  Or click here for all things tagged Winter/Spring 2013 on Early Word.

I'll go first. Without question the book I am most excited for this spring is NOS4A2 the new horror novel by Joe Hill. I have to wait until 4/30, but I am sure it will be worth it.  You can click here to go over to the horror blog where I posted an exclusive excerpt.

There are other books I am eagerly awaiting too, just not as intensely.  I am very interested in reading Kate Atkinson's new novel, Life After Life (out 4/2).  This is NOT a Jackson Brodie novel, but I have enjoyed both the Brodie and non-Brodie novels by Atkinson in the past.

What about you?  Use the above links to help you see what is coming out soon and leave a comment with your top anticipated titles.

I've been waiting for Life After Life, or at least hoping for Atkinson to again write something like her early novels, for many, many years. I'm afraid my expectations might be too high.

Alas, my spring picks are barely spring as they will be released in June just before the calendar says summer. I'm looking forward to Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane (June 18) but will be curious to see No One Could Have Guessed the Weather (June 13) by Anne-Marie Casey and The Bookman's Tale (May 28) by Charlie Lovett. And when summer comes, I'll be looking to the end of August for Louise Penney's next Inspector Gamache installment: How the Light Gets In.

I am looking forward to Colum McCann's "Transatlantic" and "Middle C" by William H. Gass. There are always more books out there that need discovering so I'm also hoping to unearth a rare gem.

The ARC for Kate Atkinson's new book has been passed around at work like crazy, so I'm excited to hear all of the good buzz while I wait for my turn. In the meantime, I'm eagerly awaiting Mary Roach's new title, Gulp: Adventures on the the Alimentary Canal Canal, which arrives April 1st,
