New Release Monday

Like any addict worth their salt, I await new book releases with bated breath.  At times I just can't wait for the next big book to come out, especially if it is the next installment to a series that I am reading.  What are you looking forward to reading in the near future?  Here are some of the new releases that I am excited about:


'Dark Tide' by Elizabeth Haynes - March 12

Elizabeth Haynes is a bestselling author of psychological suspense novels in the U.K. This past June, Harper published her first novel, Into the Darkest Corner. Her next book, Dark Tide, is the story of a woman who saves up to buy a houseboat and start a new life. Things are looking up when she gets the boat, but then a dead body floats into the harbor, and it is someone Genevieve knows from a secret second job as a dancer at a club. Is their relationship a coincidence or something more sinister? Fans of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn might enjoy this up and coming author.

Gone Girl was one of the best books that I read in 2012, so the fact that this book is supposed to be similar intrigues me.  Elizabeth Haynes is a new author to me, and I look forward to becoming familiar with her work. 

A Thousand Pardons' by Jonathan Dee - March 12

A Thousand Pardons by Jonathan Dee follows a woman whose husband makes a public mistake that destroys their family and everything they have worked for. The protagonist moves their daughter to New York and takes a job in PR, but she must still face the fallout from her past and work through what it means to forgive and how to reach her increasingly distant daughter. Dee's last novel, The Privileges, was a finalist for the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

I will actually be reading this one in the next few weeks, so stay tuned for my review.  

Six Years' by Harlan Coben - March 19

Harlan Coben delivers a stand alone thriller for those who need some spring break beach readingSix Years gets its title from the amount of time since the woman Jake loves married another man, Todd. Jake has kept his promise to leave them alone, but he has never stopped loving Natalie. When he sees Todd's obituary, he decides to go to the funeral. There, he finds out that Natalie was not really Todd's wife and that he's been lied to. As he tries to find Natalie, more of what he knows to be true becomes suspect and his life becomes endangered.

Another book by Harlan Coben that looks really interesting. 


Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices #3) - March 19

If the only way to save the world was to destroy what you loved most, would you do it? The clock is ticking. Everyone must choose. Passion. Power. Secrets. Enchantment. Danger closes in around the Shadowhunters in the final installment of the bestselling Infernal Devices trilogy.

I am really enjoying this trilogy, and am looking forward to the last installment.
