BOO! Pre-Reads are here! Perhaps it is more accurate to say that “recently published” books are in. When I started doing the now highly anticipated Pre-Reads post they were titles that were going to be published a month or so in the future. Those posts were just summaries but reviews were difficult to come by. Alas, I have landed a more methodical and well-reviewed way to obtain titles. Now, I can say these books are highly reviewed and worth your while. However, I have still not read any of these titles, so what some reviewers claim as the next great American novel, I may not actually agree (assuming I ever got the chance to read any of these). To my own credit, I have purchased some titles from the Pre-Reads for my library (that is, the library that employs me, not my home library–which currently sits in stacks all over the home office, whilst I still wait for my built-in book shelves). The fiction titles are by far, easier to access by publishing date and reviews. The non-fiction titles still retain the mystery of the un-reviewed summary format of the original Pre-Reads. Either way, add some of these to your growing To Read List. If you have read any of them already, do share your thoughts!
