Last week is was reading resolutions. This week we are in preview mode. The end of the year best lists are done and it is time to look forward into 2014.
RA Online began keeping track of the major 2014 preview lists at this link. So I started looking through the various lists myself and found a few titles that I am quite excited about.
First I will start with 2 books that come out in February that I have been not so patiently waiting for-- Wiley Cash's follow up the his brilliant A Land More Kind Than Home entitled This Dark Road to Mercy and the conclusion of Joe Hill's masterful Locke and Key series, Alpha and Omega. For the Cash, I had no choice but to wait, but on the Locke and Key, I could have followed the 6 issues that made up the final bound volume as they came out, but I knew I would be happier if I read the final arc all at once as I have read the previous 5 volumes. I am hearing that my patience on both will be worth the wait.
For a longer term view point, the third book in Deborah Harkness' series which began with A Discovery of Witches is coming out in July, Ernest Cline's Armada is set for October, and I am intrigued by the Colson Whitehead nonfiction book of his time in the pro-poker circuit coming in May.
Now it is your turn. For today's Monday Discussion, what books are you most excited about for 2014?
