  1. Go Set a Watchman is the book of the year for sure, maybe the next few years too. I ordered it from Barnes and Noble for my mom. I will of course be snagging it from her at some point lol Enjoy your reads!

    1. I've thought a lot about STATION ELEVEN since i finished it. I am not sure if LIKE is a word I'd use to describe my feelings about the book, though.

    1. As I was sitting here working on my TTT last night the news came on and the anchor said "I hope people aren't disappointed with GO SET A WATCHMAN because Atticus Finch is a bigot." Oh great. My favorite literary character is transformed. Ugh.

  7. Station Eleven looks good and I'm really wanting to read Everything Everything. I look forward to seeing what you think of Go Set A Watchman. I'm already hearing tons of controversy on that one. Enjoy your new reads!

    1. I am so excited to get further into The Wrath and the Dawn. I was such a fan of 1001 Arabian Nights as a child. I hope for lots of similarities.

    1. Well, it is not an easy, lighthearted book for one thing. I think it is an important book but not an easy book to read..

  11. Station Eleven has been on my to-read list! The cover for Princess X caught my eye. Just read the summary and it sounds really interesting. Enjoy your newly acquired reads!

  15. "Wrath and Dawn" is EVERYWHERE these days. Or it seems to be. Hope you're liking it. It does sound intriguing.

    Thanks for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon, Anne. Happy reading. :)

  16. I also ordered GSAW! CANNOT WAIT for it to arrive!
    And I also have Station Eleven on my list this week.
    Can't wait to read The Wrath and The Dawn and Boys Don't Knit (but I don't own them yet).

  17. I want to pick up a copy of Station Eleven very soon! I have heard great things about Everything, Everything, and Challenger Deep is also on my TBR. Hope you enjoy GSAW! I'm eager to start hearing some reviews soon!
    Thanks for stopping by the The Local Muse

  18. Princess X looks so good! It's definitely one I would like to read. Also I started Station Eleven a few weeks ago, but it didn't grab me. I have to go back and give it another shot. I think I just had too high of expectations! Thanks for stopping by my list :)

  19. I'm super jealous that you have Go Set a Watchman coming your way!! I read an excerpt online recently and it made me super excited. I hope to get it soon too!

  20. This is a great list! I really want to read Station Eleven (I have a copy, but haven't managed to get to it) and The Wrath of the Dawn is on my wish list. I don't think I'll read Harper Lee's new book. I am curious to know what everyone thinks about it though when they read it.
