Thanks to Twitter (and YouTube in one case), I’ve come across five “new” books that I’m itching to read. A few of these books haven’t been published yet, one was recently republished, and another published late last year.
1. Endangered by Lamar Giles
I read Giles’s last book, Fake ID last year and loved it. The mixture of mystery and elements of thriller made me wonder where these kinds of books were when I was a teen. I’m so excited for Endangered that I’m going to be pre-ordering the hardcover edition.
2. Atlanta Burns by Chuck Wendig
Chuck’s blog, Terrible Minds, has been a major source of entertainment for me ever since the fall. Yet I haven’t read a single one of his books. The re-release of his YA novel Atlanta Burns in January seemed like the perfect opportunity. I’ll be picking up a paperback copy because it’s not available as an eBook for the Nook.
3. Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix
An author that I follow on Twitter commented on how her husband nearly threw out her copy of Horrorstor because it looked like a catalog.That piqued my interest, and I was sold on the book when I learned that it was a horror story set in an Ikea-type store.
4. Dream House by Marzia Bisognin
I’ll never admit exactly how much time I spend on YouTube, but I will say that I’ve been watching CutiePieMarzia’s videos since last summer. She has a passion for the creepy, telling viewers about her love of psychological horror. That’s my type of horror. So I’m excited to see her take on the genre.
5. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
At the end of 2013, Sarah Dessen abandoned a novel that just wasn’t working. She told her followers on Twitter that she still worried about ever being able to finish a novel again. Saint Anything is the book she wrote in 2014. Her ability to walk away from that book helped me to do the same with a project that just wasn’t working.
Are there any books that are coming out or have already come out that you’re looking forward to reading?
