I’m not going to do a New Year Resolutions post. I’m certainly not going to put in writing that I intend to blog more in 2010 – though I do – or post the mental lists of goals that are growing ever-longer in my head.
Instead, I’ll post my list of books coming out in 2010 that I am truly, truly impatient to read. Squirmy, fidget-pants impatient. Exasperated sigh, is-it-release-day-yet? impatient. IMPATIENT!

So, what have I forgotten?
I’m sure there are heaps more that should be on this list. Meanwhile, St. Matt is looking hopefully at its brevity and making a New Year’s Resolution that this will be the year he figures out a way to convince me to buy less books…
Good luck to him.
p.s. Books I foolishly overlooked or didn’t know about ’til later – I’ll add in orange. Books I’ve read will be changed to purple.

Happy 2010, BB! *copies list over your shoulder while the teacher isn’t looking* 😉
Hope you enjoy THE DRAGON FACTORY. There are also a couple of free short stories available online: COUNTDOWN takes is a prequel to PATIENT ZERO (http://us.macmillan.com/CMS400/uploadedFiles/COUNTDOWN_free.pdf) and DEEP, DARK (just posted yesterday), takes place just before the second book, THE DRAGON FACTORY. Here’s the link: http://jonathanmaberry.com/download-the-free-joe-ledger-story-deep-dark
Emily – The teacher is ALWAYS looking. Eyes in the back of her head and all that…
But you have my permission. Copy away b/c then we can DISCUSS.
Jonathan – thanks for stopping by and for the links to COUNTDOWN and DEEP, DARK. You know how much I love Joe Ledger. (Even though your books scare me back to nightlights and teddy bears).
