I always pick out more books than I can possibly read in one day for these events, but I like to have variety on hand. Here's what I'm eying for my stack:
Horrorstor, by Grady Hendrix, because it's October and appropriate for scary reads, and because I met Grady Hendrix at BEA and talked about this book and it sounds AWESOME.
In the Company of Sherlock Holmes, ed. Laurie R. King & Leslie S. Klinger, because I read and loved their last collection of Sherlock-inspired stories (A Study in Scarlet), and who doesn't love Sherlock-inspired stories?
The Snow Child, by Eowyn Ivey, because Nathan Dunbar told me to.
Wild, by Cheryl Strayed, because I fell hard for Strayed's writing in Tiny Beautiful Things, and have had an inexplicable urge to go hiking lately, so it seems timely.
In the Woods, by Tana French, because I accidentally read the Dublin Murder Squad books out of order, and want to go back and read the first before I pick up Broken Harbour and The Secret Place.
Florence Gordon, by Brian Morton, because it sounds feminist-y and awesome.
Salt, Sugar, Fat, by Michael Moss, because my so-far experience with Whole30 has me obsessing over the food industry, ingredient lists (there is added sugar in EVERYTHING) and how my body processes these things.
God'll Cut You Down, by John Safran, because anything about race that is blurbed as "by turns informative, frightening and hilarious" has me intrigued.
