March 28, 2014 Blogger Events 24


Hi all and welcome to Futuristic Friday! This is a feature that the fabulous Tamara from Traveling with T dreamed up and kindly invited me to co-host. In this feature, we each look ahead to some of the book that will be published in the next three months which we’re most excited about. I love putting this feature together because it helps me actually plan my reading in advance. I’m also super excited to check out Tamara’s picks, since we have similar but not identical taste. I always find something new to me in her great picks.

    Great choices Katie! 🙂 🙂 The Collector of Dying Breaths is a cover that has been intriguing me for some time (MJ ROSE has the BEST covers!) And Vintage is another book that I’m curious about. #addingtotheTBRlist And THE SEA GARDEN!!

      Thanks Tamara! I haven’t seen anything else by MJ Rose, but I’m going to have to go look up the other books now! The Sea Garden is one where I saw the cover and just knew it was going to be a story I was interested in. So beautiful. Out of your books, Ember Island and The Never Never Sisters especially jump out at me and it looks like they’re getting positive goodreads reviews already. Definitely some books to keep an eye on!

    • DoingDewey

      Oh, I’m glad to hear it! I always worry that these lists might be too long but I suppose compared to the overwhelmingness which is all the new releases of the next three months, it is pretty manageable!

    50 Children was wonderful. I just scored copies of the new Steve Berry, Chevy Stevens, and a bio of the Romanov daughters that I’m super stoked about!

    • DoingDewey

      I’m excited to read your reviews! The one about the Romanov daughters sounds especially interesting. I love reading books about women in history 🙂

  3. Jennine G.

    Oh, Inheritance sounds interesting. Reminds me of a Malcolm Gladwell type topic. I will have to look out for some reviews on it.

    • DoingDewey

      I’ve been interested in genetics since probably sixth grade, so this is completely my kind of book! If the science is done well, I’m sure I’ll love it.

    • DoingDewey

      Haha, yeah, at the end of the year, I’ll be curious to see how many of the books from this feature I actually read. I tend to accept ARCs I’m offered rather than requesting them, so I often end up pretty far afield from what I planned on reading.

    I only know three of the books you guys have listed! Crazy, isn’t it. But i look forward to see the reviews of some of the other ones. This is a great way to find out what is coming out. Keep up the good work.

    • DoingDewey

      I try never to think about how many books I want to read because I’m pretty sure there are more of them than I’ll read in a lifetime. I’m glad you found our list helpful for finding out about some of them 🙂

  5. Aylee

    Right on, you guys got some interesting looking reads on here and I hope you enjoy them! My most anticipated read at the moment is Dreams of Gods and Monster – GAHHH CAN’T WAIT!! Only a few more days to go…

    • DoingDewey

      I haven’t even started that trilogy yet, but checking on goodreads, it seems like every book has gotten stellar reviews. I’ll have to move it up on my TBR pile! 🙂
