A full page ad for Rosamund Lupton’s Sister – a book I devoured when it first came out – appeared in the first issue this year of the New York Times Book Review. Lupton has another book – Afterwards – that I looked for in the Heathrow terminal during a long layover. The salesperson marvelled that I was so excited to find and purchase a book that has already gone to paperback in London, but will not be published in the United States until April.
What other books are coming in 2012 from some of my favorite authors? Books to look for and anticipate (with publication dates varying according to your country):

Still need to read Sister and am always up for Anne Tyler. I love the A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty cover!
I enjoyed Joshilyn Jackson’s “The Girl Who Stopped Swimming.” Looking forward to this when one – due to come out sometime in January.
