Yesterday I posted about some books I was waiting for to come out in softcover, hopefully mass market size. While I would love to be able to buy new books in hard cover, unfortunately my budget doesn't permit it except on occasion, and right now, my arthritic knees are so inflamed that any extra weight that I carry makes them ache so much more , that hard covers are out right now for me, except at home. So, while I seem impatient for books to come out, its because they are there, only I just can't quite get to them until they are in soft cover! and sometimes it takes AGES.
So there I was, lying in bed after writing my post, and I suddenly thought: The Fault is in Our Stars! I forgot to mention it! How could I??? So herewith, is my second list of more books I am waiting come out in soft cover this summer/fall:
The Fault In Our Stars - John Green July 24/12 (I am so excited! I've wanted to read this ever since it came out!)
Black Skies (newest title out) - Arnaldur Indridason ***this will be in trade softcover. Yaay!
Outrage - " " July 3/12 (as I said yesterday, only a month to go!)
A Beautiful Mystery - Louise Penny - Aug/12 (hardcover, but for all you lovely Gamache fans who can read hard covers, lucky lucky you....newest one in two months!)
A Trick of the Light - Louise Penny - FINALLY - July 3/12
The Twelve - Justin Cronin Oct 16/12
11.22.63- Stephen King - No date yet... sob....for the softcover.....
Boy in the Suitcase - Lene Kaarberbol Sept 4/121
Zone One - Colson Whitehead - July 10/12 (zombies!!!!)
Harbour - John Arne Lindqvist Sept 18/12 (At long last.....I have been waiting so long for this one, it seems. Ghosts!)
And his Little Star will finally be available here in Hardcover Oct 2/12
And look......Tana French has a new one out!!!
Broken Harbour - Tana French - July 3/12, and it looks awesome.
*happy sigh* I'm sure if I looked harder, there would be more to come. Is it good or bad that I have most of these lined up on Amazon so I can see right away if one is coming out?
Apparently Peter Lovesey''s Stage Struck is already out in paperback (April), so I think I'm going to have to order it since I haven't seen it out here.
The Beaggar's Opera - Peggy Blair - Feb 2013 (this is in large paperback already, the mass market is next Feb)
Tolstoy and the Purple Chair: My Year of Magical Reading - Nina Sankovich - June 19/12! another one this month! at long last!
Sigh, happy happy sigh.
****Edited to add: for lists of new books coming out :(in any edition, all first time releases,) go to Chris at Stuff as Dreams are Made Of here, and Kailana at The Written World here.
