Parajunkee has set up a New Year’s Challenge and has questions set over 14 days and I will try and answer as many as possible
THE BOOKS OF 2014 YOU WON’T MISS
I dont have a list of books I need to keep an eye out for as yet. My head has been so buried in pre-release books in 2013 that I actually havent been paying attention to the upcoming books.
However, I will be looking out for these new books
- “The Long Mars” by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter – the third in The Long Earth Series
- “Mr. Mercedes” by Stephen King (after a long absence I read Dr Sleep when it came back and it seemed to indicate King was back on form)
- “Borderline” by Lawrence Block. 2014 seems to be the year of republishing Block books – at least in the US! Not so much here in the UK.
The first two books (above) are not available to pre-order on the Waterstones website (they’re not out till Mid June), but are on Amazon.com – trying not to give them any of my money!
I WILL be avoiding books by Patricia Cornwell (as I still havent read the last two from her and I think there’s a reason for that) or Jonathon Kellerman – I havent read any of his recently either, not because he’s fallen out of favour, just…..because.
