Book Releases To Look Forward To In 2013

Here are a few books that I’m looking forward to that are coming out in 2013:

Inferno - Dan Brown
We can look forward to the return of Robert Langdon in Dan Brown’s new thriller ‘Inferno’. Always gripping, and a nice, easy read.

Amazon says:
Dan Brown's new novel, Inferno, features renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon and is set in the heart of Europe, where Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centred around one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces.’

Wedding Night - Sophie Kinsella
I always look forward to the next Sophie Kinsella novel- she never fails to disappoint! They’re usually light and funny, this one sounds like it is going to be just as good as the rest.

Amazon says:
Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at thirty, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates—just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago.
 Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive—but surely this is her worst decision yet. And Ben’s colleague Lorcan fears that this hasty marriage will ruin his friend’s career. To keep Lottie and Ben from making a terrible mistake, Fliss concocts an elaborate scheme to sabotage their wedding night. As she and Lorcan jet off to Ikonos in pursuit, Lottie and Ben are in for a honeymoon to remember, for better . . . or worse.

Requiem Lauren Oliver
Third instalment of the Delirium trilogy- a new trilogy that is set to become a film. The first book is called ‘Delirium’ and is all about a dystopian future where love can be cured.

Amazon says:
Lena can build the walls, but what if there's no one left to take them down? The powerful, heartbreaking conclusion to one of the most eagerly awaited, talked-about series is here.

Life After Life – Kate Atkinson
This sounds very intriguing...

Amazon says:
What if you had the chance to live your life again and again, until you finally got it right?
During a snowstorm in England in 1910, a baby is born and dies before she can take her first breath.
During a snowstorm in England in 1910, the same baby is born and lives to tell the tale.
What if there were second chances? And third chances? In fact an infinite number of chances to live your life? Would you eventually be able to save the world from its own inevitable destiny? And would you even want to?
Life After Life follows Ursula Todd as she lives through the turbulent events of the last century again and again. With wit and compassion, she finds warmth even in life's bleakest moments, and shows an extraordinary ability to evoke the past. Here isKate Atkinson at her most profound and inventive, in a novel that celebrates the best and worst of ourselves.

Nine Lives – S J Watson
I loved ‘Before I Go To Sleep’ so cannot wait to read S J Watson’s new book! There is no blurb yet as it’s not being released until September but watch this space!

The Accidental Apprentice – Vikas Swarup
From the author of ‘Q & A’ (AKA Slumdog Millionaire) and ‘Six Suspects’ (which I really enjoyed!) comes ‘The Accidental Apprentice’. It sounds like it’s going to be another fantastic read!

Amazon says:
Life pivots on a few key moments. This is one of them. Sapna Sinha works in an electronics store in downtown Delhi. She hates her job, but she is ambitious and determined to succeed, and she knows without the money she brings in, her family won't be able to survive. Little does she know it but her life is about to change forever. As she leaves the shop on her lunchbreak one day, she is approached by a man who claims to be CEO of one of India's biggest companies. He tells her he is looking for an heir for his business empire. And that he has decided it should be her. There are just seven tests she must pass. And then the biggest lottery ticket of all time will be hers.’

What do you think? Any take your fancy? Do you know of any more books coming out this year that I have not mentioned?


  1. Can't wait for Dan Brown's, and Jodi Picoult has a new one coming out as well in March called The Storyteller which looks really interesting and apparently touches upon the holocaust. xx

    1. Yes I'm looking forward to Dan Brown's too- might even brave tackling Dante's Inferno before I read it so that I will really appreciate it! Oh I wasn't aware of that Jodi Picoult one- thanks for that, will add it to my Amazon basket now! :) x x x
