Happy Friday! Hope you are well today.
This post from Novelicious got me thinking. Which soon to be released books am I looking forward to reading? There are many, but in the spirit of my Five for Friday posts, here are my top um…five.
One Day is the only book by David Nicholls that I’ve read so far. Us is about difficulties in marriage mid-life as a husband finds out his wife plans to leave him. If One Day is anything to go by, I’m sure tears will be shed and the characters will stay with me long after I’ve finished reading.
Katherine Webb is one of my favourite authors. I have enjoyed all her other novels so far, particularly The Misbegotten and A Half Forgotten Song, so I’m looking forward to what The Night Falling has in store. It’s set in 1920s Italy, a story of disparate lives coming together one hot summer. It’s sure to hold plenty of mystery and have a vivid historical setting – perfect reading for an autumn weekend.
I get the impression that this has been released elsewhere already, but that UK publication is not until October? The first book of Liane Moriarty’s that I read was very popular The Husband’s Secret, but that was probably my least favourite so far. Little Lies and What Alice Forgot are on my list of top reads during 2014 and I know from now on I’ll be waiting not-so-patiently for each new release.
The Christmas Surprise revisits Rosie Hopkins of Sweetshop of Dreams fame. It’s released in October, but I’m going to try to wait till December to read it. Good Luck me.
As well as introducing Bea and Jake, I’ll Take New York revisits characters from Miranda’s first book Fairytale of New York. I look forward to Miranda’s books every year, so roll on December.
I’m looking forward to Christmas already. 🙂
I’d love to hear your recommendations for upcoming releases – let me know which you’re looking forward to most either here or on twitter!
