I was sitting in class and realized how excited I am for the next Donna Tartt book scheduled for publication this year. Any other books or pieces of literature you are particularly excited for?

Irvine Welsh brings out a prequel to Trainspotting this year, In April I believe. That should be pretty damn good.

The Secret History is one of my favorite books, I highly recommend it if you're interested in reading Donna Tartt.

Other than that, I want to catch up on all the books I haven't read and that are on my kindle. I have like 700 books on my kindle. Everything from the autobiography of Malcolm X to the Warmed and Bound anthology.

Ahhh yeah, I can't fucking wait for Skag Boys either Martin. I'm actually listening to the Trainspotting soundtrack thinking about it.

Secret History is amazing - glad to hear DT has a new one coming out this year (I didn't really connect with her last one - I think it was called The Little Friend.

@Deets999. Yeah I heard that DT's last book really bombed. I haven't read it, the reason being a combination of the fact that I have too much unread books to begin with and the fact that I don't want to ruin the high pedestal I place The Secret History and Donna Tartt on.
