Bout of Books 10.0 Day 2 Challenge: Most Anticipated Books

This challenge is hosted by River City Reading.

Here is a blurb from her blog about the challenge:

Last month I created a list of ten summer titles I'm looking forward to. Your challenge is simple: create a list of titles you're looking forward to reading. They can be upcoming titles in a specific season, titles that have been on your shelves, it's up to you!

I am going to list the top 5 most anticipated books that I have on my shelf.  If I did the most anticipated books in general, we could be here for days.

 1.  The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz
This book I picked up at a local library book sale.  It is an adult mystery.
 2.  Messiah in the Story of the Hebrew Scriptures by Greg Zhelezny

This is a book that shows how Jesus is in the Old Testament and not just the New Testament.  The mother of the author came to my church to talk about how Jesus is expressed in the Passover dinner.  This is when I picked up this book.
 3.  The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

I picked up a copy of this book at the Goodwill.  It is the version with the beautiful cover from the movie.  This is a young adult book about a girl who has died and gone to Heaven and is looking down to earth as life continues on earth.  Included in the people she sees is her murderer.
 4.  Gone by Michael Grant

I got this book from Book Outlet for a really good price.  This is a young adult book about when teens wake up everyone is gone except for the young.
5.  Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson

I got this book for Christmas last year.  This is an adult christian fiction novel about a female homicide investigator and a male FBI agent.

What are your most anticipated books on your shelf?  Comment or link your posts below.


  1. You know, I suppose it is, but I've never thought about The Lovely Bones being YA. Funny, ol' labels! Great book, though; one of my favorites. Happy Reading!

  2. I think that it can be categorized as both YA and adult
