Weekend Ramblings: Most Anticipated Books of 2013
Most Anticipated Adult Fiction:
Z: A NOVEL OF ZELDA FITZGERALD by Therese Anne Fowler (Mar 26)
I’ve always had a fascination with the roaring 20s and the Fitzgeralds are the epitome of that era. I’m looking forward to reading this biographical fiction about the beautiful, scandalous, intense woman whose relationship with F. Scott inspired some of his most famous writings.
Most Anticipated YA Fiction:
UNSOULED by Neal Shusterman (Oct 15)
The third book in the incredible Unwind trilogy — a series that has just had its film rights acquired by Constantin — this book is one that I’ve been looking forward to since I heard Shusterman was writing a second and third book to complete the story begun in one of my favorite novels. In this not-too-distant future, parents are able to ‘unwind’ unwanted teens and use their organs to ‘cure’ others.
Most Anticipated Nonfiction:
THE ESSENTIAL HOMEBIRTH GUIDE: FOR FAMILIES PLANNING OR CONSIDERING BIRTHING AT HOME by Jane E. Drichta, Jodilyn Owen, Christiane Northrup (Feb 12)
Both of my children were born at home, so I’m a big advocate of homebirthing. I had the opportunity to review an ARC of this book and really appreciated the readability of the information, the thoroughness of research, and the wide scope of topics in this book, which make this an excellent resource for any pregnancy, regardless of where a woman will be birthing.
