BTT for 1/3

Another one I am doing on the right day. Woo Hoo!
Last week we talked about the books you liked best from 2007. So this week, what
with it being a new year, and all, we’re looking forward….
What new books are
you looking forward to most in 2008? Something new being published this year?
Something you got as a gift for the holidays? Anything in particular that you’re
planning to read in 2008 that you’re looking forward to? A classic, or maybe a
best-seller from 2007 that you’re waiting to appear in paperback?


I would say, after a glance over on Amazon, that i am looking forward to a few new releases and plenty of other stuff. Duma's Key by Stephen King is out later this month and i am waiting for a little lull in my reading life to order the his graphic novel The Gunslinger Born. Fire Study by Maria Snyder, a new installment in a solid fantasy series, is out in March. On the non-fiction side Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food sounds great. Unless announced soon, I guess we won't get a new Fire and Ice book this year; i am excited about picking up his new releases Dreamsongs 1 and 2.

for older stuff, i am glad i am finally dipping into some Russian stuff. I want to work on my classics list more. Catch up on some of my series reads. Finish the His Dark Materials works.

On a related tangent, the movie situation is looking good too. Cloverfield! The Orphanage! The Dark Knight! Speed Racer! Prince Caspian! Wanted! More that i am not remembering!

And we get LOST again. smiles all around.

  4. I saw the Speed Racer trailer for the first time Wed. night and am really looking forward to it. It looks so colorful and fun. I hope it is as entertaining story-wise as it looks to be graphically. And I'm a big fan of Christina Ricci and can't wait to see her in this.
