Random Thoughts: 50 Upcoming Non-Debuts to Die For

I revealed my list of 25 Upcoming Debuts to Die For (which has already grown by at least ten books since my post), but debut books aren’t the only upcoming books to die for.

There are plenty of non-debut books that are just as worthy of an early death that will be coming out between now and the end of the year.

As I couldn’t limit the list to twenty-five, I just couldn’t, here are the fifty upcoming releases that I absolutely must have. I already know I’m missing a ton, so these are just the fifty books that I currently could list off the top of my head.

What the heck is going on with September releases? It’s insanity. There is no way that I will ever be able to keep up with the amount of books releasing in September. I think I’m going to have to hide from new books and authors in 2012 just to catch up with 2011.

And, I’m sure that by year’s end my “To Die For” list for non-debut books will probably be closer to 100, if not way, way more.
