Books To Watch Out For In 2014
Being a literature student and a book lover my favorite kind of shopping has always been book shopping. The feeling that you get when you enter a bookstore and breathe in the aroma of books, is something that only a fellow book lover can understand.
And so today I have decided to share my love for books with all of you. I have come up with a small list of books that should definitely feature on your “must-read list”. Most of these books haven’t been released in India yet, but don’t worry they should be out soon.
The Gospel of Loki by J M Harris
The author of Chocolat, J M Harris has written her first Norse God novel for adults, The Gospel of the Loki. It is a first person tale of Loki’s recruitment from the Underworld of Chaos, his exploits on behalf of his master Odin, his betrayal of Gods and finally the fall of Asgard (home of the Norse Gods).
Will The Gospel of Loki make for another one of Harris’s masterpieces?
Cress by Marrisa Meyer
Many people tend to avoid novels that garner a lot of hype because they think it kills the enjoyment. Unfortunately this is exactly how the young readers felt when Cinder, first installment of Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles hit the stands in the year 2012.
However, a lot has changed in last the two years. Today, the same readers who did not want to grab a copy of Cinder are at this very moment engrossed in the third installment of the series—Cress.
Grab the entire Lunar Chronicles if you love the idea of futuristic cyborgs and androids.
The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Rick Riordan first created and developed the story of Percy Jackson for his son who was diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia. Little did he know that children would love his version of Olympus so much that he would end up writing a series about Percy’s adventures—Percy Jackson and The Olympians. And five years after publishing the first Percy Jackson book, in the year 2010 Riordan launched his second series—The Heroes of The Olympus.
The Heroes of The Olympus is a collection of five fantasy novels and continues from where The Last Olympian (last book in the Percy Jackson series) left off. In this series Riordan introduces the readers to the Roman demigods who must unite with the Greek demigods to fight the main villain Gaia. But the question is will they be able to do so?
Frog Music by Emma Donoghue
Award winning novelist Emma Donoghue is out with a new tale of murder and intrigue. Set in nineteenth century San Francisco will Frog Music top Emma’s Man Booker shortlisted hit, The Room? Well, that’s for you to find out.
The Shadow Throne by Jennifer A Neilson
The last in my small list of must-read books is the final installment of the New York Times bestselling Ascendance Trilogy—The Shadow Throne. Going by the reviews of international bloggers, this is by far the best book in the entire series, but unfortunately we will have to wait for some more time to experience that thrill.
However the bright side is that we have time on our hands to save some cash and pounce on these books as soon as they hit the stands. So which one will you read first?
