    Oh yippeeeee! I love your list! So, I just recently heard of The Missing Place- and the Wonder Woman cover I am totally digging! And Hello from the Gillespies is intriguing me- that blue door is making me wonder things!

    Great list- *runs off to update my TBR list*

    • DoingDewey

      The Missing Place and Hello from the Gillespies are definitely some of the ones I think are most likely to appeal to you too! I actually just finished The Silent Sister and I think Lovely Wild looks fascinating. And I do hope to add a cozy mystery to my reading at some point, so I’ll definitely look to you for recommendations when I do 🙂

  2. Lindsey

    Oh my goodness, you two know how to plan ahead! I usually have my next few reads planned out, but that is about it!

    I’m off to look into The End of Days!

    • DoingDewey

      I recently started planning more in advance so I could request physical ARCs, but I’m busy enough with school that I think I’ll go back to not requesting so many books for a while.

      I thought The End of Days look really interesting! It’s translated fiction with a really interesting premise.

  3. Becca Lostinbooks

    Um…I want to read almost every single one of these. How did you guys do that? Katie, I am a BIG Egyptophile. I have been wanting to read The Woman Who Would Be King for a while now.

    • DoingDewey

      We must just have similar taste! I’ve loved stories about Egypt since I was in middle school and I also really enjoy reading about women in history, so that’s at the top of my list too 🙂

  4. Anya

    Yey, Stitching Snow looks like it’ll be a lot of fun! I haven’t heard of many of the rest, but I trust you two to pick good books 😉

  5. Leila @ LeilaReads

    I’m looking forward to Stitching Snow. My request on NetGalley for it was declined (sadness). Lovely Wild and The End of Days look really good. I do so love (hate) posts that introduce me to books I’d otherwise not see. So not good for my TBR list…

    • DoingDewey

      Oh, that’s too bad! I hope you end up getting to read it anyway 🙂 I feel the same way about hearing about new books. It’s a blessing and a curse!

  6. Catherine

    Great chocies! I’m looking forward to Vanessa and Her Sister because those girls lived a life stranger than fiction so I want to see what will happen when it is fictionalized.

    I’m a Frank Bascombe fan so am really excited about Richard Ford’s decision to write another novel about him. Let Me Be Frank With You is out in Nov and I’ve set a high bar for it! I’m also curious about Michel Faber’s The Book of Strange New Things. He’s covered some pretty diverse territory in his novels so want to see what he’s doing next.

    • DoingDewey

      I love reading fiction with famous people as characters, especially authors, so I’m really looking forward to that one too! I’ll have to pick up a nonfiction account as well or just skim wikipedia though, because I don’t actually know anything about their true story.

      Those both sound interesting! I hope you end up enjoying them 🙂
