There have been lots of great novels already released this year and plenty more on their way.
I am looking forward to reading many of these books. I wanted to do a book haul for titles that I have ready to read on my kindle.
The Furies by Katie Lowe sounds absolutely amazing.
In 1998, a sixteen-year-old girl is found dead on school property. Her body is dressed in white and posed on a swing. The cause of death is unknown.
There are four girls that know what’s happened. They’ve managed to keep their secret. Until now.
I don’t know why but I am getting a little bit of a Virgin Suicides vibe from this novel and I can’t wait to read it.
This is due to be released on 2nd May 2019.
Half a World Away is the new book by Mike Gayle. I have adored this man’s novels for many years and always get a little excited when he released a book.
The general summary of this novel is Kerry Hayes is a single mum, a cleaner, and is Mariah Carey’s biggest fan.
Nick is a successful Barrister. He has a wife, a daughter and has a big house in Primrose Hill.
These two are strangers who have nothing in common and who may as well be living worlds apart.
It wasn’t always this way. They are both about to discover who they really are.
The Rules of Seeing by Joe Heap is another book I am looking forward to reading. The cover is beautiful.
The release of the paperback is on 18th April. The basic story surrounds Jillian (Nova to all but her mother,) who has lived thirty-two years in the dark.
She is now learning to see. The sky is blue, and green and grey. A whole spectrum of colours that are as changeable as her mood.
The one thing she can see is that Kate is going to change her life forever even though they have only just met.
All We Ever Wanted is the latest novel by Emily Giffin. I have been a fan of Emily since I read Something Borrowed in my twenties. Again, another beautiful cover.
This book focuses on Lyla and Nina.
Everyone has seen the compromising photo of Lyla, a scholarship kid in a prestigious private school.
Everyone knows that Nina’s son, the one that’s been prepared for success since childhood is responsible for taking this photo.
As things spiral out of control, Nina and Lyla are drawn together; both being outsiders in an elite circle.
In an unlikely bond of friendship, the photo is forcing them to question who they are and who they are becoming.
Don’t You Forget About Me is the new novel from the brilliant Mhairi McFarlane.
I love your laugh.x
That’s what it began with.
That was twelve years ago. It really began when Georgina was fired from the worst restaurant and found the worst boyfriend in the world in bed with someone else.
When her new boss, Lucas turns out to be the boy who wrote those words to her all those years ago, It feels like the start of something.
The only problem is, Lucas doesn’t seem to remember her. At all.
This sounds great and definitely my kind of book.
Mark Haddon’s new book is called The Porpoise and is due for release in May.
A newborn baby is the sole survivor of a terrifying plane crash.
She is raised in isolation by a wealthy, overprotective father knowing nothing of the rumour about a beautiful young woman being hidden from the world.
When a suitor visits and understands more than he should, is forced to run for his life.
He escapes abroad The Porpoise with an assassin on his tail.
The last book in this haul is the paperback release of Property by the author of We Need to Talk About Kevin, Lionel Shriver.
It’s her first collection of stories and it illuminates one of the modern ages most enduring obsessions, Property.
A woman creates a personal wedding present for a friend, to a son who refuses to leave home, this book to me sounds so intriguing and one I am very much looking forward to reading.
