I like posting these and then comparing wrap-ups to TBRs at the end of the month. For me, most of the time they are very different.


"The best-laid plans of mice and men..."


Anywho,  these are some of the books I see on the horizon for this month. It's going to be a busy month, so we will see how I do. 


Some highlights:


I'm looking forward to Kristin Higgins new book - I always enjoy her chic-lit. And I'm really looking forward to Kinsella's latest, Surprise Me.


I am cautiously looking forward to Pride and Prometheus - the Pride and Prejudice/ Frankenstein mashup cuz... well... that sounds absolutely insane in a way that makes me want to read it sooner rather than later.  


Passion for Books - essays about books? How can that possibly be bad? 


On Writing Well is a re-read from years ago because I want to write better, more gooder, ummm... well. 


Happy reading everyone!
