Thanks to @RonCharles for helping me add to this list and for obviously inspiring my own anticipated books list. (I think one is already published but I don't own it yet so the anticipation is still real)
  1. The Persuaders: The Hidden Industry That Want To Change To Change Your Mind by James Garvey
    Static
    Listened to an interview on CBC Radio with the author and was instantly intrigued.
  2. Phishing for Phools: The Economics of Manipulation by G. Akerlof and R. Shiller
    Static
    The audiobook is read by Bronson Pinchot. Yep Balki narrates this. Now I'm strongly considering the audiobook instead.
  3. Here I Am by Jonathan Safran Foer
    Static
    Yes I lived and died by Foer's first two novels, pimped them out and called him my favourite contemporary author. No pressure Foer.
  4. The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead
    Static
    I wasn't aware of this until @RonCharles list. I remember as a kid first learning of the Underground Railroad, my classmates and I were astonished that there wasn't an actual railroad. Thank goodness for patient teachers.
  5. Swing Time
    Static
    My affection for Zadie Smith has waned. I am hoping to fall in love with her all over again.
