For the 2015 Reading Challenge, I’m blogging through one category per month, in order. (Don’t worry—you don’t have to read them in order.)
This month we’re tackling category #2: “a book published this year.” I already shared the books I can’t wait to read in 2015; today I’m sharing 8 more books that are being published this year.
Please note: unlike most of the books that appear on this blog, I haven’t read these. For these forthcoming (or just-published) books, I’m right there with you: anticipating the new titles and crossing my fingers that they’ll be good.
That being said, these 7 2015 releases are on my TBR list, and might deserve a place on yours:
Published January 6. This short story collection delves into the lives of women who are—as the title puts it—were almost famous: Oscar Wilde's niece, Lord Byron's illegitimate daughter, Edna St. Vincent Millay's sister.
Published March 24. Katherine Center writes warm, engaging fiction that engages with the issues that matter to real women. I've enjoyed her previous 4 novels; looking forward to #5. (And such a great cover!) More info →
Neil Gaiman is hit or miss for me: sometimes he's too dang scary. Despite that, I think I may tackle this short story collection, which I've heard lets you appreciate his range in a way his novel-length work can't.
Coming May 5. The companion to the inventive Life After Life, which used a striking structure to explore multiple versions of the life of Ursula Todd. This time, the story follows Ursula Todd's younger brother, Teddy, "as he navigates the perils and progress of the 20th century." More info →
Coming September 22. I haven't read any of Gilbert's books, but I adored her TED talk on the subject and have loved her short work on creativity. I'll be reading this (and maybe The Signature of All Things in the meantime).
