Book Release Conspiracy

scarlett.jpgWhy is it that all of the books I REALLY want to read aren’t coming out until April and May??? Or, even worse, not until this summer. I’m going on vacation this week — I can’t wait for release dates!

Books I would have bought IF they had been available:

Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen (not available until APRIL 22)

Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson (not available until MAY 1)

The Host by Stephenie Meyer (not available until MAY 6)

Airhead by Meg Cabot (not available until JUNE 1)

Queen of Babble Gets Hitched by Meg Cabot (not available until JUNE 24)

Stop in the Name of Pants! by Louise Rennison (not available until JULY 1)

Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (not available until AUGUST 2)

There must be a conspiracy to keep those of us in the frozen tundra who are escaping to warmer climes from having great airplane books.

I settled on Pretty Little Liars 2 & 3 to read on the plane, but that’s only going to last me one way. If only Pretty Little Liars 4 weren’t coming out until MAY 27!

If I were a smart and savvy librarian, I would have attended ALA mid-winter and picked up some gallies, or gotten on a review committee like my coolest of cool friend Amanda M. (who has to buy new bookcases for all of the Newbery books she’s getting in!!), or I would take up authors on these kinds of offers of advance copies.

Instead I’m left galley-less and advance copy-less, trapped by the late release date conspiracy.

At least I have something to look forward to.

Off somewhere warm(er).
