Reading Ahead: September 2012, part 1

Yes, you read the title of the post correctly.  We're already talking about books being released in September.  (Although, if you want to know the truth, we librarians are also ordering books for 6 months from now, in some cases.  Those will be here before you know it!)  I can't believe I've been seeing back-to-school commercials on television for two weeks already, but whether you're looking forward to getting back into that routine, or you're looking to catch up with some reading time post-Olympics (guilty!), I've got some titles for you to put on your list.

One Last Thing Before I Go, by Jonathan Tropper

A Wanted Man, by Lee Child

Mirage, by Clive Cussler & Jack B. Du Brul

Winter of the World, by Ken Follett

NW, by Zadie Smith

Low Pressure, by Sandra Brown

Father Night, by Eric Van Lustbader

I'm particularly keen on Ken Follett's new title, sequel to 2010's Fall of Giants.   He has a great talent for historical fiction, and Fall of Giants was extremely popular.  I've also been a fan of Jonathan Tropper since reading his first novel, Plan B, back when it was released in 2000.  There is a lot of critical accolade for his newest title, so I'm eager  to see how it fares with readers.  

So tell me--what is catching your eye?  Keep your dance card open, though--I have more titles to share next week!
