How beautiful the turning of the year!

If, like many of us, you made a resolution to read more books this year, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got tons of new tomes.

Radclyffe and Richard Labonté kick off 2011 with new Best Romance anthologies both from Cleis Press. Meanwhile, the king of Young Adult fiction David Levithan has a new book out this month from Farrar Stauss and Giroux, The Lover’s Dictionary—a love story, told through dictionary entries. Levithan’s book tour kicks off next week.

We’re excited about two stunning debuts, Matthew Gallaway‘s opera-inspired, The Metropolis Case (Crown) and Tomas Mournian‘s tale of runaway teens, hidden (Kensington). Also of note, figure skater/provocateur Johnny Weir makes his literary debut with a new book of anecdotes and pop culture essays.
