When I remembered to do a post announcing which two lucky people won a copy of one of the titles in my ‘Best of 2010’ selections of their choices, I also realised that I hadn’t done a post on the books that I am most looking forward to in 2011. Currently due to naughty Royal Mail it seems none of my post is being forwarded so only a few catalogues have very recently arrived or been emailed and I’ve not hunkered down to read them yet. So before I do I wondered if you can help with any of your suggestions, and I don’t mean just with new books coming out in 2011, I mean any books I should really consider reading in 2011 that have already been published too.
I normally instantly devour all the catalogues when they arrive (and if anyone has any they want to send do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org) but I have held off a little this year with the ones that have made it to my new abode. In part I think I want to get through a few I meant to read in 2010 before I do and also I think I am still mentally thinking it is 2010 – I can be a little slow on the uptake sometimes. I also think because I want to read by whim in the forthcoming year I want to see just what crosses my path naturally (or via an arrival through the letterbox) and what you guys keep me abreast with. So I thought today, before I knuckle down with the catalogues early next week, I would simply hand it over to you with three simple questions…
- What book are you particularly excited about that’s coming out in 2011?
- What book came out in 2010 that didn’t get noticed as much as it should have and would you demand I try?
- What one single other book from any era, by any author, in any genre would you say that I should give a whirl at some point (if there are any in Mount TBR that’s great) in the near future on a whim?
Over to you then…!
