Eagerly Awaited March Books

Friday, February 8th, 2013

There’s something so hopeful about spring. The holiday craziness is past, and the reading lists are starting to fall into a promising shape (one hopes). All of us here at AAR found books on the March list that we are eagerly awaiting. Actually, after devouring Simone St. James’ fabulous The Haunting of Maddy Clare last year, I now have one book on this month’s list that I’m downright impatiently awaiting. What do you want to read as we head into spring?

Eagerly Awaiting in November

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Some months I’m struck by how in sync our reading tastes seem to be here at AAR, and then other months, I’m reminded of how diverse our interests can be. November seems to be one of the latter sorts of months. Quite a few of us are Sarah Mayberry fans, but beyond that, our picks seem to be all over the map this month. I’m almost getting new reading ideas just putting the list together! So, what do you want to read next month?

It’s still warm as I write this, so it’s a little difficult to think about fall. The list of October new releases makes it a little easier, though.

In addition to this historical, we’re also keeping our eyes peeled for a number of other books. What do you want to read this fall?

Eagerly Awaited August Books

Friday, July 13th, 2012

As always, all of us at AAR found books across a variety of subgenres to pique our curiosity for August. It does seem to be a big month for contemporaries, though. With new releases from Lisa Kleypas, Molly O’Keefe, Susan Andersen and several others, our contemporary fans here at the site are giving historical fans a run for their money. I’m happy to see so many good books coming out just in time for the lazy (or at least lazier) days of summer. What do you want to read before fall sets in?

Eagerly Awaiting in July

Friday, June 8th, 2012

If you enjoy historical romance, July looks like it’s going to be a big month! Several favorite authors have releases this month, with new books coming from Sherry Thomas, Loretta Chase, Carrie Lofty, and Elizabeth Hoyt, among others. I can’t wait to have a few days off work to sink into some of these. And fans of other subgenres have plenty to make them happy as well, with quite a few contemporary, paranormal and other releases hitting shelves and e-readers just in time to kick off vacation season. What do you want to read this summer?

Every month, I’m always curious to see which books are generating the most interest around here. Usually there’s a book or two that has lots of staffers looking for it. This June, we have plenty of reads that sound promising, but there’s a three-way tie for the book that interests the most staffers. We have a lot we want to read, but it looks like our staff is especially looking forward to the newest releases from Julia Quinn, Rachel Gibson and Carla Kelly. What about you?
