BEA and Book Blogger Con- The Books


That's my stack from BEA, not including the Book Blogger Con swag bag and a few assorted things I got for my husband and a stack I got for the conference I'm speaking at next week. (I'm going to do a raffle giveaway of a dozen or so Jewish-interest fall and summer titles culled from what was on offer at Book Expo last week.)

What am I looking forward to?
Steve Martin's An Object of Beauty;
Paul Auster's Sunset Park, which I got signed;
Jane Gardam's God on the Rocks,
Joshilyn Jackson's Backseat Saints, which I'm reading now and enjoying;
The Great Lover, by Jill Dawson, which was on my wish list before BEA and then showed up in the Book Blogger Con swag bag,
The Outside Boy, Jeanine Cummins's book about Irish Travellers, also a BBC swag bag offering,
The Debba, by Avner Mandelman,
A Curable Romantic, by Joseph Skibell,
and so much more.

It's going to be an incredible summer and fall for books. Bring it on!

What are you excited to read this year?
