I have a huge ‘to be read’ (TBR) pile sitting on my desk, but there are so many exciting books due in 2016 that I thought I’d select just ten that I’m really looking forward to reading in the very near future.
Who can resist a psychological thriller? ‘Try Not to Breathe‘ by Holly Seddon looks brilliant. It is published by Corvus on 7th January in hardback and ebook.
‘The Widow‘ by Fiona Barton is almost at the top of my TBR pile. I anticipate it will be one of those books like ‘Disclaimer‘ by Renee Knight that divides opinion but I can’t wait to get in to it. Published in ebook and hardback by Bantam Press it is out on 14th January.
Tim Baker’s thriller ‘Fever City‘ is out on 21st January in ebook and hardcover, published by Faber and Faber and promises to be an exciting read.
I know many bloggers have already read this, but although I’m a bit late to the party, I’m looking forward to ‘In a Land of Paper Gods‘ by Rebecca Mackenzie as I think the setting will be one I enjoy. It is published by Tinder Press in ebook and hardback on 28th January.
Also published in ebook, paperback and hardback on 28th January by Doubleday, ‘For the Most Beautiful‘ by Emily Hauser looks a sumptuous read set in Troy.
Here’s another book that I think will take the blogging world by storm in 2016. ‘The Ballroom‘ by Anna Hope is out on 11th February in hardback and ebook and is published by Doubleday. The atmosphere suggested looks just my kind of read.
Also released in paperback on 11th February after being out in ebook, is Anna North’s ‘The Life and Death of Sophie Stark‘. It is published by Weidenfield and Nicholon, an imprint of Orion. Backed by a big campaign, I think this will be a huge success.
Having been a sensation in Japan, selling a million copies in six days, ‘Six Four‘ by Hideo Yokoyama and translated by Jonathan Lloyd-Davies is published in hardback and ebook by Quercus on 3rd March.
Out on 5th April is ‘One in a Million Boy‘ by Monica Wood. Available in hardback and ebook it is published by Headline Review.
‘Shtum‘ by Jem Lester I think might be one of THE books of 2016. It is published in ebook and paperback by Orion on 7th April which happens to be my birthday so how could I resist?
