Futuristic Friday: What Books Are You Looking Forward To Reading?

futuristic friday

Hello and welcome all to the first Futuristic Friday hosted by Traveling With T and Katie from Doing Dewey. I’m pretty excited to unveil this new jointly hosted feature (and I hope you are excited to read and see what it is all about!)

What is Futuristic Friday?

Back in 2013, I was thinking about starting a new feature. I toyed around with the idea of a Throwback Thursday- but was unsure that I could maintain that on a semi-regular basis. I also wanted a partner- someone I could trust to help me with the feature, someone who could be a good bloggy person to chat with, perhaps someone who was the yang to my yin. I started thinking about all the bloggy people I interact with and Katie kept popping in my head- she’s got a broad reading taste, I knew her from She Reads, and I enjoyed talking with her. And days later, Futuristic Friday was born!

    • So glad you thought there was some great picks AND that you added a book to the non-fiction pile. I adore Katie’s picks. Many I have not heard of- but that is what I like- discovering new books 🙂

    • Yes! Very similar. I didn’t notice till you mentioned it, though.

      I really want to read IN THE BLOOD. I’ve never read anything by Lisa Unger- but I’m def looking forward to this.

      Thanks for stopping by!
