I’m looking forward to some books releasing in 2009, but there are two I’m particularly excited about.

The first is this one: Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches’ Guide to Romance Novels I’ve always both admired and been intimidated by Sarah and Candy’s intelligence, sense of humor and just plain chutzpah (the only other person I feel similarly about is Jane, who is also kind of scary in her intelligent commentary). I know this book promises to be their particular blend of all three of those qualities and I can’t wait! Releases in April 2009.

The second book I’m super excited about is Pioneer Woman’s cookbook. There’s no specific information on it on either her website or Amazon, but from reading her blog I know it’s due to be released in 2009. If you’ve never tried a PW recipe, you’re missing out so get thee to her website and check out her recipe file. Subscribe to the Cooking blog for sure, but also to her other blogs–she’s funny and entertaining. Oh, and she also has some pretty amazing giveaways on her various blogs just about weekly, though she does get about 14,000 entries in one day’s time!

Here’s some of the fiction books on my Amazon wishlist for 2009–these are only the ones that I had note of, I’m sure there are many, many more I’m missing. One thing you might note about my wishlist is that it’s comprised almost entirely (with the exception of Kristan Higgins, Victoria Dahl and JD Robb) of urban fantasy, fantasy and paranormal. I think for 2009 my resolution will be to read more contemporary and historical:

Kindred in Death by J.D. Robb. *sidenote* I love how Nora Roberts has her entire 2009 release schedule on her website. It lets fans know what’s coming. There are some authors on my list who really need to do better about updating as some don’t even update AFTER the book’s release (or don’t have a website to speak of at all). Ack!

Unknown release date

Book 5 of C.L. Wilson’s Tairen Soul series. Write faster C.L.!

Some 2009 books I have ARCs and have either read or have TBR:

Magic Strikes (Kate Daniels, Book 3) by Ilona Andrews (I’m also very excited about her June release from Samhain!) releases March 2009

Living on the Edge by Ilona Andrews (pssst, Ilona, you need to update your website…it still says “Border Rose” and your Samhain book isn’t even on there. *sniff*)
