Not my usual thing but I’m curious:
The School for Good Mothers by Jessamine Chan
Let’s Not Do That Again by Grant Ginder
What’s on your radar?
Ummm… do you plan on doing anything other than reading this year? 😆 Good luck.
No plans really – whatever comes my way, my reading group books, and hopefully knock off some of the TBR. One day I might go back to actually having a proper plan.
I’ll have to trawl through this list to see what I will add to my own TBR 🙂
My plan is to get the TBR down. This plan is doomed to failure 😀 Happy reading Kate!
Of course you have to have The Swimmers. Swimming AND mental illness, and apparently well written to boot.

Do you think we’ll finally, actually get the new John Irving novel?!
I hadn’t heard about the Jonathan Safran Foer (Goodreads has a 2014 release date??) or Carlene Bauer, so thanks for those!
Very hopeful re: Irving but he hasn’t posted any update on his progress for a long time, so…. 😕
I’m really interested in Young Mungo.
I tried To Paradise, but only made it through the first 2 sections. The first was marvelous, but the 2nd became a slog and then the 3rd lost me.
Pressure is on after Shuggie!
Now, do you think we’ll ever actually get Darkness as a Bride?
It publishes October 18, 2022 — it’s now titled, THE LAST CHAIRLIFT
Thank you for this news!
Might want to update the title of the John Irving book, so you know which one to ask for: DARKNESS AS A BRIDE is now THE LAST CHAIRLIFT, out Oct. 18th
