As I was browsing through this list, I was ashamed to realize I had not read a single one! However, Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson is on my list to be read before the Tucson Festival of Books, when she will be in town to speak. So many people have gushed about this book to me, I won't be putting it off much longer.
Some of the other books just have wonderful titles. I am intrigued by Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman (better get on that hold list now, before it grows too long); and how about The Handbook for Lightning Strike Survivors by Michele Young-Stone. How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu has caught my eye since it came out, and talking about catching the eye, have you seen the cover for The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordano? There is something about it that makes me pause everytime.
I'd better start reading. And it's never too early to start looking for new debut authors of this year.
