Weekly Recommendations List #2 (exciting title, eh?)

Here is my 2nd list of recommendations (yes, I know it's Tuesday - so, sue me).  As a reminder (because it was a week ago, after all), these are all books that I have NOT read.  My sources are bloggers, authors, readers, publicists, and publishers.  As before, if I don't list a genre, then it's your basic contemporary fiction.  Here they are:

That's it for this week.  Another 25.  There is no shortage of books being recommended by no shortage of sources.  Stick with me here.  In the meantime, I'll "see you" next Monday (approximately).


  1. You are so good to post your list like this. It will definitely help you keep track of where and why you have it on your list.

  2. Thanks, Stacy. I didn't even think about that. But you're right.
