Here They Come

Janet Evanovich
It's getting hot out there in more ways than one because the big summer books are about to hit the shelves of your local bookstores. Based on their huge initial printing numbers, you won't have any trouble finding a copy of this bunch:
Sizzling Sixteen - Janet Evanovich - (a Stephanie Plum novel) - 2,500,000 copies

The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner - Stephanie Meyers - (a "Twilight" novella) - 1,500,000 copies

The Lion - Nelson DeMille - (a terrorism thriller) - 1,000,000 copies

The Search - Nora Roberts - (a serial killer thriller) - 650,000 copies

Star Island - Carl Hiassen - (another South Florida novel) - 500,000 copies

2010 will be a good year for authors named "Stephanie" or "Janet "but this looks a whole lot like the same old stuff to me...and I'm bored already.


  1. Even if one considers most readers prefer lighter fare in the summer, this list looks very, very dull.


  2. Gotta hope there's much more in the pipeline than these, C.B. These remind me of "B" movies coming out around Christmas...
