It is hard to believe it but this is the last Monday Discussion before the unofficial start of summer. RA for All will be off next Monday to celebrate Memorial Day, so today is our chance to get a jump on summer.
For today's Monday Discussion, I want us to share what books we are most excited to read this summer. They do not have to be the newest or hottest books either.
Are you going to read a book you have been waiting to get to all year? Is your favorite author coming out with a new title? Is there a classic you've always wanted to read and have been saving for this summer?
To help, here is the link to Reader's Advisor Online's Hot Prospects for 2013 list. The early summer reading lists are at the top. Also, Book Expo America is just on the horizon and Kirkus Reviews published this special BEA issue with reviews of 160 of the buzziest books from BEA.
As usual, I'll go first. For me, I still have Justin Cronin's The Twelve to get to. Since it is an ARC paperback, I figure it is good to bring to the pool this summer. I also have a stack of JournalStone horror ARCs to get to. But I am holding off on any big plans because I know I will have 3 days at the ALA Annual Conference here in Chicago where I will be introduced to new authors and/or new books that I will be dying to read.
Also, later today the Monday Afternoon Book Club is meeting and they will be turning in their final votes for the July-December selections. That will let me know some of what I will be reading this summer too.
Now it is your turn. What are you excited to read this summer?
