BTT

Okay, I'm very late this week, but I wanted to answer this one!

Last week we talked about the books you liked best from 2007. So this week, what with it being a new year, and all, we’re looking forward….

What new books are you looking forward to most in 2008? Something new being published this year? Something you got as a gift for the holidays? Anything in particular that you’re planning to read in 2008 that you’re looking forward to? A classic, or maybe a best-seller from 2007 that you’re waiting to appear in paperback?

There are quite a few books I am looking forward to this year. In fact, I am looking forward to all of the ones on my challenge lists, but here are a few highlights:

  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (Jewish Lit Challenge).
  • Red Poppies by Alai (What's in A Name Challenge, Reading Across Borders and Expanding Horizons Challenge)
  • The Motorcycle Diaries by Che Guevera (Expanding Horizons Challenge)
  • Marie Antoinette: The Journey by Antonia Fraser (TBR and Chunkster Challenge)
  • The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (Chunkster and TBR)
  • First Among Sequels by Jasper Fforde (Themed Reading Challenge)
And, not on any challenge list, I really hope I get a chance to read The Translator: A Tribesman's Memoir of Darfur by Daoud Hari, to be published in March 2008.

The Book Thief is soooo good. Also, try to read The Time Travelers's Wife before the movie comes out. It stars Rachel McAdams and Eric Bana. I can't wait!

I didn't know TTW was made into a movie, I'll have to check it out after I read the book. Thanks for letting me know!
