Help a blogger out

I need help. And only you, my readers and fellow book bloggers, can help me out.

You see, I went a bit of the grid in the last year. Since I was predominently buying books instead of being able to get them off the library I kind of fell of a wagon in terms of adult fiction. I have ooooodles of YA recommendations. Oodles. YA was pretty easy to keep up with actually due the comparitively low price of YA vs adult fiction.

But I'm feeling unbalanced. Yes, I read your blogs and I have a lovely little tab of book blogger recommendations in my spreadsheet. But somehow that's just not cutting it for me. I need your best recommendations.

Here's what's on my request list right now (excluding my big ole long list of YA).

  • Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs (already "read" The Friday Night Knitting Club as an audiobook)

  • Earthly Pleasures by Karen Neches (I saw it on someone's blog...if it was you speak up)

  • Fire Study by Maria Snyder (want it now)

  • The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson (are you reading her blog? You're not. You should be.)

  • Girls in Trucks by Katie Crouch (I like the cover, good a reason as any right?)

  • How to be Single by Liz Tucillo (seems to be the hot book of the summer)

  • Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot (read the first two so I have to read this one even though I'm pretty sure I know what's going to happy and Lizzie can be a bit of a flake which makes me want to kick her in the shins to smarten her up again)

  • The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen (also want this now)

  • This Charming Man by Marian Keyes (I have a love/hate thing with Keyes...since I didn't love her last book I figure I'm due to like this one. However I'm #189 on the waiting list so it'll be awhile)

  • The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton (again saw it one someone's blog - speak up if it was you)


I have Mudbound checked out and I've preorder The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (I was preordering all of the President's Daugther re-released books which I absolutely CANNOT wait for...which no doubt means that'll be the week that I get a job or something...).

What am I missing? What book have you read in the last year is a total must read for you? HELP!

(I have oodles of non-fiction lying around here so I don't need recs for that but if you've read one that must be shared with the world let me know! Although if it's food-lit chances are I've read it, it's on my wishlist or it's on my shelf waiting to be read.)
