There are some neat books coming out soon! I’m so excited that I might burst!
It has been a good year for books. A few of my favorite authors have published new books this year and several more will be hitting the shelves in the upcoming months. This is the first time ever that I have a series of pre-ordered books scheduled. It’s like my book addiction has gone to a whole new level.
While I’m eagerly waiting their arrival, I thought I’d share the ones that I’m the most excited about…
Coming In July
July 28: Circling the Sun by Paula McLain – McLain wrote The Paris Wife, which I loved, so I was pretty excited to hear that she had a new book coming out. I’m intrigued by the premise of this book – it’s the story about a record-breaking female aviator, set in Africa in the 1920’s and has, what seems to be, a scandalous love triangle. I’m thinking this might be the perfect book to dive into during the “dog days of summer.”
Coming In August
August 18: For the Love: Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards by Jen Hatmaker – I’m pretty much sold when I hear the name Jen Hatmaker. She is hilarious squared. If you do not follow her on Facebook, drop everything and go like her page now. You’ll thank me. I’m also already sold by the title of this book. Could “For the Love” be any more relevant right now? I can’t wait to hear what she has to say (and I will be hearing from her directly because I opted for the audiobook!). I’m so thankful for her “voice” in the Christian sphere. She brings so much honesty and grace to the table. I’m sure this book will be a heavenly inspired dose of encouragement and laughter.
August 25: Rising Strong by Brené Brown. I haven’t read any Brené Brown books yet, but I’m changing that in August. I’ve been meaning to read her books because I’ve seen and heard so many good things about her. Since I love the premise of this book – it’s a compilation of stories about people falling and getting back up again – I’ve decided to start here.
Coming In September
September 22: Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert. Although her book, Eat, Pray, Love, started a whole movement, I actually enjoyed her book about marriage, Committed, even more. She dissected marriage from several aspects – cultural, historical, relational, etc. It was very interesting. I think she might do a similar thing in her new book about creativity. She also has a huge Facebook community and I’ve been so inspired by some of her posts. For those of us wanting to create something or have an idea brewing, I think this book will be the kick in the pants that we need.
