Figure Skating Books You Can't Wait to Read

I spent much of the past two months going through my book collection and discarding most of my books by Russian authors, including everything from The Pure and Innocent Girl, by Eteri Tutberidze, to The Right Thing to Say, by Alexander Zhulin. I now have several empty shelves and am compiling a list of books to read before Nebelhorn. Here is what I have so far:
  • A Bitter Pill to Swallow, by Kamila Valieva
  • The Truth About My Mother, by Diana Davis, as told to Christine Brennan
  • Preparing for Early Retirement, by Alysa Liu
  • Consistency, by Roman Sadovsky
  • Beijing On One’s Own, by Vincent Zhou
  • Graceful Exits, by Aljona Savchenko
  • Working with a Mirror, by Guillaume Cizeron
  • Easy Ways to Look Good in Your Fifties, by Alexei Urmanov
  • Not My Fault I’m So Pretty, by Nikolaj Sorensen
  • Las Vegas: Emerging from the Bubble, by Rafael Arutyunyan, with appendix of text messages by Nathan Chen
  • When a Stranger Calls, by Anastasia Gubanova
  • Simon Reed and Nicky Slater: The Unexpurgated Papers, edited by Meaghan Duhamel
This will still leave plenty of room on my shelves, so I would appreciate your recommendations.

New titles only, please. Why dwell on the past? :)
