As if I didn't have enough books to read this year already, this July will see the publication of Tyrannosaurus rex: The Tyrant King, a book wholly dedicated to the iconic dinosaur. It's edited by Peter Larson and Kenneth Carpenter (it's part of the Life of the Past series), and although I don't know what will be in the book I have to say that I love the cover. You can already pre-order the book, although I'm going to try my best to get a review copy to do a write-up on as we get a little closer to the summer.

I'm also looking forward to the much closer publication of Dogs: Their Fossils Relatives and Evolutionary History and Elephants and Ethics: Toward a Morality of Coexistance, copies of which I'll also try to obtain to review here (although I'm sure I'll still eventually pick them up even if I am not able to). What books are you looking forward to this year?
