Blog Post: Books I Want to Buy Soon (a.k.a This is Why I’m Always Broke)

Do you keep a list of books to buy like other people write down their groceries? Do you gobble up information about upcoming releases feeling like a kid on Christmas morning? Do you think about getting a job in a bookstore solely for that sweet employee discount?


What follows below is the list of books coming out over the next several weeks which are bound to enrich my life but – unfortunately- make my personal finances a bigger stretch than that last season of LOST. In other words, this is why I’m always broke.

  • Sleeping Beauties – Stephen King, Owen King
      All the women in the world but one fall into a mysterious sleep, and this book is going to fall into my hands as soon as it’s released.
  • X-Files: Cold Cases – various authors (Audible version)
      The original actors lend their voices to the audio version of this book. I get special tingles just thinking about hearing “Mulder, it’s me” again.
  • What She Ate: Six Remarkable Women and the Food that Tells Their Stories – Laura Shapiro
      Just how much do you believe food influences a life? Do you think what a person ate could potentially influence her enough to change history? This book takes a look at six notable women and discusses how their relationships with food may have reflected and impacted their lives.
  • Chokehold: Policing Black Men – Paul Butler
      A former federal prosecutor takes on the system and the many ways it’s geared to keep black men trapped in it.
  • Dark Crystal: The Ultimate Visual History – Casine Gaines and Brian and Wendy Fround
      Rare artwork, on-set photos, and interviews for fans of this classic fantasy film – i.e., pretty much everyone.
  • Leia: Princess of Alderaan – Claudia Gray
      A YA novel set prior to A New Hope. That’s all the info I have on the book at this time but, quite frankly, that’s all I really need.

What soon-to-be-released books are you looking forward to reading? Do you have any suggestions for me to add to my list? Leave a reply and let me know!
