…well, the ones I’m most excited about, anyway! Some of these have already been released during the first 2 month of this year and some are still to come, but all are books I am really excited to read! Check them out on Goodreads for a synopsis, and please add me on there as a friend if you haven’t already!
The Girl on the Train – Paula Hawkins: described as “A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people’s lives”, this looks like it will be a real page turner. I’ve seen a lot of hype around it so I’m keen to see if it lives up to it all!
The Ghost Fields (A Ruth Galloway Investigation) – Elly Griffiths (out 26th March 2015): after reading The Outcast Dead and really enjoying it, I’m looking forward to reading more from the Ruth Galloway series.
A God in Ruins – Kate Atkinson (out 7th May 2015): the second book in the Todd Family series, A God in Ruins follows on from Life After Life and focuses on Ursula’s younger brother. I hope it’s as great as Life After Life was!
The Ice Twins – S.K Tremayne: a chilling story about an identical twin dying- but their mother has no idea which one… sounds interesting! It’s got over 4 stars on Goodreads too, which is always a good sign I feel!
Behind Closed Doors – Elizabeth Haynes: ‘Ten years ago, 15-year-old Scarlett Rainsford vanished while on a family holiday in Greece. Was she abducted, or did she run away from her severely dysfunctional family?’ This first sentence on the back cover had me intrigued…!
Second Life – S.J.Watson: The new psychological thriller from the author of Before I Go To Sleep, this looks like it might be as good, if not perhaps better!
Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard: This is the first in a new trilogy called ‘The Red Queen Trilogy’ about 17 year old Mare who is a ‘Red’, one of the poverty stricken ‘commoners’ who are living under Silver rule. I’ve seen mixed reviews but am keen to give it a go, and hoping it’s not too sci-fi for my usual tastes!
Funny Girl – Nick Hornby: I know this actually came out in hardback last November, but it was released this month in paperback and I’m still dying to read it! It’s described as ‘a lively account of the adventures of the intrepid young Sophie Straw as she navigates her transformation from provincial ingénue to television starlet amid a constellation of delightful characters.’ Doesn’t that just sound great!
Finding Jake – Bryan Reardon: Compared to We Need To Talk About Kevin, this novel tells the story of a father trying to understand his son in the aftermath of a school shooting. Full of suspense, it sounds like a really thought-provoking, interesting read.
