As we enter into the new year, changes are upon us. What better way to keep those resolutions company than taking a reading break now and then? Here are some cozy reads that should warm up much of the rainy days ahead.
Journalist Michael Hastings’s novel The Operators will be released in early January with a bang as it offers a controversial look into the war in Afghanistan.
Ready for some laughs? Dave Barry and Alan Zweibel offer plenty in their sure-to-be-a-bestseller novel, Lunatics, coming out Jan. 10.
Also being released on the same date, is award winning Canadian-Polish author Eva Stachniak’s fiction novel The Winter Palace: A Novel of Catherine the Great. A lot of buzz surrounds the upcoming release of Alex George’s debut novel, A Good American, on Feb. 7, which follows the sad yet happy journey of two American immigrants and the lives they create.
Joining the shelf in February 2012, is Tatiana de Rosnay’s The House I Loved, and if the success of her novel, Sarah’s Key is any testament to her writing, then this one is sure to be a page turner.
Vampires and werewolves have captured the hearts of many, and Anne Rice, best known for her Vampire Chronicles, steps up a notch and explores the world of werewolves in her new novel The Wolf Gift, being released on Valentine’s Day.
And for those avid series readers, J.D Robb’s latest edition to her In-Death series, Celebrity in Death hits the shelves Feb. 21.
Lauren Kate’s fourth installment in the Fallen series, Rapture, will be available June 12.
April 21 will see the release of Anne Tyler’s latest novel The Beginner’s Goodbye, which, according to the Book Page blog, is “an exploration of loss and recovery in which a middle-aged man, ripped apart by the death of his wife, is gradually restored by her frequent appearances (in their house, on the roadway, in the market).”
So fellow bookworms, the world may or may not end in 2012; hence, the only plausible thing to do would be to “keep on reading till the world ends.”
