Feature and Follow Friday


Yay! Once again I am participating in Feature and Follow Friday, an awesome weekly meme that is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read and is designed to help book bloggers meet, connect and basically have a good time whilst talking about bookish things. If this is your first time here, welcome and don't be shy, I love getting comments (but doesn't everyone). And please feel free to take a look around the archive list ...

Anyway, it wouldn't be Feature and Follow Friday without a question, so ...

What books are you looking forward to reading in 2014?

This is a surprisingly difficult question to answer as, for the moment, most of my reading wants and whims have been satisfied. I have finished most of the series that I have been following (or abandoned them out of frustration, i.e. the Matched series by Allie Condie which started good but turned out to be a massive disappointment,) with the exception of Bloodlines, but the next book in that series won't be out until May, so I've still got quite a bit of time to wait there. Same as the second book in the Twinmaker series won't be out until mid-to-late 2014. And some of my favourite authors such as Tim Winton released their novels in late 2013, so we probably won't see another release for quite some time yet. And as has been traditional since the 1990s, every V.C. Andrews release proves to be a massive disappointment, so I'm not really looking forward to this weeks new release The Unwelcome Child though it will probably get a review on here at some stage simply because I seem faithfully buy all of her books, even though I think all of the new ones are lame and I hate them. 

Anyway, over to you. Which releases are you looking forward to?

  1. I haven't started reading the Bloodlines series although I really want to read it already. I'm looking forward to Sweet Reckoning, Opposition, Up From the Grave, The One, King Tomb, and many more.

  2. I haven't read any of the books you've mentioned so I'll have to check them out. I'm looking forward to The Retribution of Mara Dyer, oh how I've waited ages for this book!

    1. Matched started out good, but turned out to be a huge disappointment. I'm not even going to bother to post reviews on books two and three as I don't think they are worth my time or that of my followers. Ignite Me and Cress both sound like good reads.

  6. I completely agree about the V.C. Andrews books. I used to love them. Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina were my favorites. They just started going downhill and some of them were just boring. I stopped reading them after a while. Following via Bloglovin' and G+.
