A new year means new books and I spent a little time over the holiday looking for titles. Fortunately there’s an on-sale calendar at Publishers Weekly and I’ve started hearing about other books that are not listed there as well.

Below is an incomplete list of titles coming up this winter and spring. I’ll add to it. If you know of a title or have a book out, please add your title in the comments.

Also, there are a couple of celebrity titles included, which I don’t usually do. But these two celebrities have such amazing stories, I’m considering reading both their books. (Pics of just a few of the books – longer list below).
