After a summer of not being super excited about any reading choices, now I am overwhelmed. So many books I want to read THIS INSTANT!
The Twelve by Justin Cronin - I've been anxiously awaiting the sequel to The Passage for months and it came out today. BUT I have a feeling I shouldn't start it during the work week.
Promisedby Caragh O'Brien - The final book of the Birthmarked Trilogy. Might be a good choice cause it should be a fairly quick read.
The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling - I bought this the week it came out and I can't believe I haven't read it yet!
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell - I've been intrigued by the movie trailer, but I can't see the movie until I read the book. Added bonus - it's on the list of 1001 books to read before you die.
When She Woke by Hillary Jordan - Retelling of the Scarlet Letter that a friend just recommended and it sounds AMAZING!
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - Several people who's opinion I trust recommended this one. Unfortunately there's a VERY long library wait list (I'm currently 324) but it is moving somewhat quickly and I do have a fairly strict book budget.
I finished Incarnate by Jodi Meadows last night and I"m almost done with The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I've been trying to mix up my genre's so I don't do a bunch of Fantasy/Dystopian YA in a row or pile on a bunch of heavy thought provoking books. As excited as I am to read When She Woke I think it will be too much immediately after the Atwood novel.
Can anyone name the 80's movie the quote for my post title came from?
