Plate Full? Chomp Chomp

Nowadays I wonder why I do this, but I'd like to think it helps keep me on my toes with regards to my deadlines. And it's the only way I keep track of books to be reviewed under the "personal" (blog) and "professional" (publication) categories.

Several unlikely titles made it into the list this time around. For the time being, they're all "personal" and most are ARCs.

  • Starters
    Lissa Price
    Doubleday (April 2012)
    336 pages
    ISBN: 978-0-857-53135-3
  • Catching The Sun
    Tony Parsons
    HarperCollins (2012)
    293 pages
    ISBN: 978-0-00-732781-2
  • In One Person
    John Irving
    Simon & Schuster (May 2012)

  • The One and Only Ivan
    Katherine Applegate
    Harper (2012)

  • The Language of Flowers

    Regina O'Melveny
    Little, Brown and Company (2012)
    314 pages
    ISBN: 978-0-316-19583-6

I first heard of Lissa Price's Starters, part one of a duology, from this "Big Idea" entry. Next thing I know, I have the ARC.

And Monsoon Books has some new titles I'm keen on - as soon as they arrive in stores.

  • Shadow Play
    Barbara Ismail
    Monsoon Books (April 2012)
    288 pages
    ISBN: 978-981-4358-68-2
  • Jaipong Dancer
    Patrick Sweeting
    Monsoon Books (April 2012)
    368 pages
    ISBN: 978-981-4358-73-6
  • Bali Raw
    Malcolm Scott
    Monsoon Books (April 2012)
    256 pages
    ISBN: 978-981-4358-71-2

Also coming my way might be The Black Isle by Sandi Tan and the next instalment in Justin Cronin's vampire trilogy. Guess it's time to sweep the bookshelves.
