What Robin is Anticipating in 2014

Here are 10 books I am excited for in 2014

*The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson (January 7, 2014) I was fortunate enough to get and advanced copy of this, and it’s brilliant, and just as important as her other issue novels. This is an eye opening look at post traumatic stress and the toll it takes on a family.

*Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo (June 3, 2014) I still need to read Siege and Storm, but Shadow and Bone was one of my favorite books I read this year.

*Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins (April 8, 2014) Yes, I’ve already read this one, too – read my review here

*Firebug by Lish McBride (Fall 2014) Because, honestly, I’d read a menu by Lish McBride. If you haven’t read Hold Me Closer, Necromancer or its sequel, Necromancing the Stone, what are you waiting for?

*We Were Liars by E. Lockhart (May 13, 2014) I just got approved for an eARC of this, and I am SUPER excited! It seems like all of the authors I follow on Twitter (and many of the librarians) have either already read this or are super excited about it.

*The Unbound by Victoria Schwab (January 28, 2014) A most prolific young author! I am excited to be able to experience her long term trajectory as it unfolds. I feel like I am getting in on the ground level of a really exciting IPO – does that even make sense?

*Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray (August 5, 2014) This is the second book in Bray’s Diviners series. I would love to be a fly on the wall in the genius that is Libba Bray’s mind.

*The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (June 10, 2014) Oh, the drama! This is the conclusion of the Mara Dyer Trilogy.

*Dangerous by Shannon Hale (March 4, 2014) Something new from Shannon Hale, sign me up!

*The Eye of Zoltar by Jasper Fforde (April 10, 2014 – UK release date?) Um…yeah. It’s Jasper Fforde. Read of my love of his works here or here. This is apparently the UK pub date; I’ve been unable to find a US pub date. My local bookstore may be getting an international order.
