WOW: Gil Marsh

This post is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this post I talk about books yet to be released that I'm excited about OR already published book's I've seen that I'm really wanting to read. I also like to try and find books other bloggers aren't sharing so that more books are shared.

I'm Waiting On:

Ok I realize this one is a long ways out, but this one looks amazing! And I'm super excited that the main character is a boy.  YA with a main character that's a boy!  What really got me was that when I first started to read the summary I was thinking it just had to be about steroids and sports, so when I saw it was about cancer and mourning the loss of someone I was more excited because it wasn't a sports book!  We need sports books, but we need books with male leads that aren't about sports too!


  1. Right on. I feel ya. Not enough male main characters.

  2. Sports books are great but I have so many guys who do actually want to read other genres. Just the other day, one of my guy students returned Evermore by Allison Noel to me and wanted more like it. Great pick -- I'll have to check it out.
