Lipstick & Magazines #58: Potential

Here are ten books (somewhat recently or soon-to-be released) on my virtual nightstand as we head into summer:

The Nasty Bits by Anthony Bourdain ~ he's always a good, down-n-dirty food read

Swapping Lives by Jane Green ~ light, but not too fluffy

Possible Side Effects by Augusten Burroughs ~ eagerly anticipated

A Student of Living Things by Susan Shreve ~ the beautiful cover sold me

Elements of Style by Wendy Wasserstein

Which Brings Me to You: A Novel in Confessions by Steve Almond & Juliana Baggott

What to Eat by Marion Nestle ~ she's a straight-shooter

Theft: A Love Story by Peter Carey

Alternatives to Sex: A Novel by Stephen McCauley

The Last of Her Kind by Sigrid Nunez

Any other suggestions of recent good reads?

My list includes Heat and The Stolen Child in new-ish titles. Salem Falls and The Book of Salt in titles that have been on my shelf for a while waiting for me to pick them up.

Thanks for sharing your list...
