Review Calendar! 2011 (and this one’s for real, you guys)

15 Apr

Well, maybe.

"Dishevelled Saint Among Severed Heads," by Brian Kershisnik. THIS IS MY LIFE. Metaphorically.

So here you are, once agan, glancing skeptically at this so-well-intentioned blog post in which I’m going to lay out all the books I plan to read and review over the next few months.  You are, of course, right to be skeptical.  I got a little (and by a little, I mean a full month) off-schedule this spring, but I did warn you, you know.  You raise an eyebrow, thinking to yourself: is she naive, disorganized, or just incredibly deceitful to make all these promises and never keep them? 

I could tell you that I’ve been doing award-winning historical research and kicking ass at undergraduate conferences, but I won’t tell you that, because this is a book review blog, and you probably don’t care.  Fair enough.  But, if you don’t mind, I’m going to stop writing in the second person present tense now, because it’s starting to sound ridiculous.  This isn’t a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book, for the love of–

Oh, whatever.

Here’s the old list from Spring 2011, plus the new books I have added thanks to all of your wonderful suggestions.  And one more thing, the old disclaimer still holds:

The reviewer reserves the right to be dishonest, off-task, irresponsible, untrustworthy, unscrupulous, untruthful, mendacious, perfidious, snarky and sarcastic at any time.  Also to read short stories ahead of other novels when she’s feeling lazy.  Advance apologies to all the wonderful authors who sent review copies attached to emails with such perfect netiquette.

Forward the Future!

As you’ll shortly see, this list will take me up to the end of the year.  That’s right.  Straight on through 2011.  And since we’re all going to die anyway, there’s really no need to solicit books for beyond December.  I’m sure you understand.
