Friday Fives- Five Books to Watch For in 2012

Song of the day: I Can't Wait by Hilary Duff

   Hello all! Time to get ready for the weekend! This post will be fairly short, as I'm working on Black Fox Literary Magazine today. Issue #3 will be released January 30, 2012. I can't believe we're already on issue #3! We're all very excited.

It's Friday, so that means it's time for Friday Fives again. This week the blog Paper Hangover asks:

What are the FIVE books you're looking forward to in 2012? 

Here's my list:

1. Mudwoman by Joyce Carol Oates

2. I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella

3. Open Space by Joshua Ferris

4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

5. The House at Tyneford by Natasha Solomon

Are there any books you're looking forward to for 2012?


  1. Interesting selection. I just read the Goodreads description of OPEN SPACE, and it says it's written in the first person *plural*. That might be worth checking out.

  2. Love Joyce Carol Oates. I'm reading THE FAULT IN OUR STARS and it's soooo good. :) His best work indeed.

  3. I'm excited for The Fault in Our Stars. Though I'm bracing myself for it, because I hear it's really sad!

  4. I haven't heard of any of those before. I'll look them up!
