Google+ Bookslingers Blog: Future Slings #2

Future Slings #2

Deep apologies for recent lack of podcast. We have been unavoidably detained by the fact that I refuse to read Circus Galacticus.

Instead, we have Miss Corene's Most Hotly Anticipated Books of What is Left in the Cooler Part of 2012:

Wish You Were Eyre by Heather Vogel Frederick (September 11, 2012)
I sure hope those suitcases are empty or she is going to be sore in the morning
 Book #6 in the ever-delightful Mother-Daughter Book Club (I will admit that I was initially drawn to the book because of the hyphen in the title. I am a hyphen hussy) looks to be just as deliciously good as the others.

Princess Academy: Palace of Stone by Shannon Hale (August 21, 2012)

Not thrilled about the cover, at all.

The first Princess Academy book is one of those perfect books that has something for everyone to love (not enough kissing but that's just a personal quibble). But early buzz says that the sequel is just as good as the original.

And is it just me or is that the same yet older model from the original?


 Drama by Raina Telegemeier (September 1, 2012)

That little floating heart and dreamy expression is how I look when I think about Raina Telgemeier
I want Raina Telgemeier to write ALL the books.

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (September 11, 2012)

Sweet cover and Tamora Pierce liked it. SOLD!

The Friday Society by Adrienne Kress (December 6, 2012)

Looks like it should be enough wacky!steampunk to tide me over before Gail Carriger's new book.

The Spy Princess by Sherwood Smith (August 2, 2012)

Looks like the kinder, gentler adventures of Ayra Stark
 Sherwood Smith wrote the Wren and Crown Duel series. Thus ensuring that I would read everything that she wrote afterwords forever.

The Spindlers by Lauren Oliver (October 2, 2012)

Would it be possible for this cover to be made into a dress for me?
Oliver's first MG book Liesl and Po was a weird book about alchemists, dead kids and factory smoke. The Spindlers  looks to be just as weird but with brooms.

Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel by Hope Larson

When I first learned that they were adapting A Wrinkle in Time into a graphic novel, my reaction was akin to: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO> STOP IT!!!!!!!!! LEAVE IT ALONE> MUST YOU RUIN EVERYTHING?????????????????????????????????????"

And then I learned that Hope Larson was adapting it and my reaction was more "Cool. Cool, cool, cool."

Now, I have to go take another cold shower and rustle up a frappuccino.

Stay cold and frosty.
