Peeing My Pants With Book Anticipation – January 15, 2009

Well, it looks like this might become a regular feature! I’m trying to keep better track of books that are on my radar, and this seems like the perfect way. 🙂

The World More Full of Weeping by Robert J. Wiersema

Publisher: ChiZine Publications
Published September 15, 2009
104 pages

Eleven-year-old Brian Page spends every waking moment in the forest behind the house where he lives with his father. But forests are always deeper than anyone can know. Secrets are hidden in the eternal twilight of the trees. Those secrets emerge into light when Brian disappears in the forest, as his father did three decades before. His father, however, came home with no memory of the events in the depths of the forest. What has drawn Brian away? Will he emerge, shuddering and broken, as his father did, or will the forests close around him, as they have done so often before?

Sounds pretty good, right? Well, go read this post and see if you don’t rush out to buy it. Seriously, if this doesn’t make you want to pee your pants with excitement, then you’re crazy.


There’s no book cover for this next one, but I just think it sounds SO INTRIGUING that I want to tell you about it anyways.

The Nobodies Album by Carolyn Parkhurst

Publisher: Doubleday
Published: June 15, 2010
320 pages

Bestselling novelist Octavia Frost has just completed her latest book—a revolutionary novel in which she has rewritten the last chapters of all her previous books, removing clues about her personal life concealed within, especially a horrific tragedy that befell her family years ago.

On her way to deliver the manuscript to her editor, Octavia reads a news crawl in Times Square and learns that her rock-star son, Milo, has been arrested for murder. Though she and Milo haven’t spoken in years—an estrangement stemming from that tragic day—she drops everything to go to him.

The “last chapters” of Octavia’s novel are layered throughout The Nobodies  Album—the scattered puzzle pieces to her and Milo’s dark and troubled past. Did she drive her son to murder? Did Milo murder anyone at all? And what exactly happened all those years ago? As the novel builds to a stunning reveal, Octavia must consider how this story will come to a close.

Universally praised for her candid explorations of the human psyche, Parkhurst delivers an emotionally gripping and resonant mystery about a mother and her son, and about the possibility that one can never truly know another person.
