Although I knew it would be deadly, I was just glancing through Lit Hub's "Most Anticipated Books of 2019, Part 2" from July 9 and got so excited that I couldn't help myself and preordered ten. I'm not ashamed to admit that I have compulsive book buying disorder, but then again they're books I really want to read so I suppose that makes it okay on some level. Here's the list -- a strange mix to be sure, but then again, that's my reading life:
Out of Darkness, Shining Light, by Petina Gappah (Scribner)
The Yellow House, by Sarah M. Broom (Grove Press)
The Promise, by Silvina Ocampo (City Lights)
Forgotten Journey, by Silvina Ocampo (City Lights)
False Bingo, by Jac Jemz (MCD/FSG Originals)
Suicide Woods, by Benjamin Percy (Graywolf)
The Great Pretender: The Undercover Mission That Changed Our Understanding of Madness, by Susanah Calahan (Grand Central)
Wake, Siren: Ovid Resung, by Nina MacLaughlin (FSG Originals)
Mary Toft or The Rabbit Queen, by Dexter Palmer (Pantheon)
Dead Astronauts, by Jeff VanderMeer (MCD)
Luckily I have plenty of books to keep me busy in the meantime; otherwise I'd be going a little bit crazy with anticipation. As it is I can't wait.
and now, I must go to Nepali Tea Traders for more tea....
