My February Wish List - Besides Chocolate

January 18, 2008 - Amy Phelps
Other than a big heart-shaped box of chocolates, here's a list of books I want coming out in February.

1. The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy - Chick-lit meets werewolves. Sounds cute.

2. Unpredictable by Eileen Cook - a woman pretends to be a psychic to mess with her boyfriend's new relationship.

3. Firefly Lane by Kristin Hannah - sounds like a new "Beaches." Get the Kleenex ready!

4. Remember Me? by Sophie Kinsella - something about an amnesia patient. I just love her books!

5. Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson - an authorized prequel to Green Gables, one of my favorite series ever? Count me in!

6. Sharp Teeth by Toby Barlow - a dark, but sounds funny, take on werewolves.

7. Lady Killer by Lisa Scottoline - a mystery. And I'm reasonably sure I've read this author's work before.

8. Obedience by Will Lavendar - a mystery having to do with a college class. It sounded creepy in the preview catalog but I couldn't find much about it online.

9. The Art of French Kissing by Kristin Harrel - a woman who does pr for a crazy rock star looks for love in Paris. Sounds fun!

10. You Had Me at Good-bye by Tracey Bateman - a woman dumped by a guy writes a book about it. I like books about writing, in general.

Didn't request, but sounded decent in the preview catalog:

1. His Illegal Self by Peter Carey - about a boy not sure of what his identity is. Could be heavy stuff.

2. The Price by Alexandra Sokoloff - the name sounds so familiar, like I've read something of theirs before. It sounded creepy in the catalog, but I couldn't find much about it online.

3. Oscar Season by Mary McNamara - a mystery having to do with movie stars. Again, sounded interesting in the catalog, but couldn't find much about it online.

4. This Is How It Happened: Not a Love Story by Jo Barret - an anti-love story, sounded cool in the catalog. Again, couldn't find anything about it online.

How I pick books: My mother/grandmother own a bookstore and get ordering catalogs from Ingram and the like, so I make note of anything that sounds interesting. Then, I look on Barnes and Noble or Amazon and read the publisher's summary (kinda like the back of the book or inside flap) and make my decision from there. And when there's nothing about them on those sites, I move on. I also have publicists send me their latest release they're promoting, or send emails out with the short summary that I choose from. So now you know.
