Book releases I’m looking forward to in 2014
Happy New Year everybody! I hope all of you had an amazing start into 2014 with a great celebration. Time is flying, can’t believe it’s 2014 already. This year we can look forward to many great book releases by great authors. Here is a list of releases I’m looking forward to the most:
THE ACCIDENTAL LIFE OF JESSIE JEFFERSON BY PAIGE TOON (out 30 January 2014)
My fifteenth birthday was the worst day of my life, and it’s inconceivable to think that any single day in my future will ever be as bad. My mum was killed in a freak accident on her way to pick up my cake. Even when there was still no sign of her after two hours later, and my friends started to arrive at our house, it never occurred to me that she wouldn’t be coming back.
That was six months ago. My mum died without telling me who my real dad was. And for a while I hated her for it. I thought she’s taken the secret of my father’s identity with her forever. But she didn’t. Holy hell, she didn’t. Because three weeks ago I found out the truth. And I’m still reeling from the shock of it. My dad is none other than Johnny Jefferson, mega famous rock star and one-time serial womaniser. And now I’m on my way to LA to meet him and his family.
My tiny little world has just got a whole lot bigger…
IT FELT LIKE A KISS BY SARAH MANNING (out 30 January 2014)
Oh, and the world-famous rock-star father she’s never met, who won’t even acknowledge her existence.
Then Ellie’s perfect life is smashed to pieces when her secret is sold to the highest bidder and her name, face (and pictures of her bottom) are splashed across the tabloids. Suddenly everyone thinks she’s a gold-digging, sex-crazy, famewhore.
Enter David Gold. Charming and handsome David Gold. On paper he’s even more perfect than Ellie, if only he wasn’t her father’s ruthlessly ambitious lawyer whose job is to manage the crisis – and her. He certainly doesn’t think that Ellie’s the innocent party and she doesn’t trust him at all. So why is it that every time they’re alone together, damage limitation is the last thing on their minds?
BEFORE JAMAICA LANE BY SAMANTHA YOUNG (out 16 January 2014)
For the first time Olivia opens her heart but what she doesn’t realise is that Nate has his own fears and just whenshe finds herself hopelessly falling for him, Nate’s past returns to haunt him.
Will Nate have the courage to confide in Olivia, or will he cut and run? And can Olivia face up to her own fears and keep him?
YOURE THE ONE THAT I WANT BY GIOVANNA FLETCHER (out 5 June 2014)
But what Maddy doesn’t know is that Ben has always been in love with her. And what Ben doesn’t know is that Rob and Maddy have begun to fall in love with each other . . .
As their friendship irrevocably changes Ben keeps his broken heart a secret for the sake of his two friends. But when Rob and Maddy’s love turns sour, can Ben continue to say nothing? And will Maddy have to choose between the two best men she knows?
TWO WEDDINGS AND A BABY BY SCARLETT BAILEY (out 5 June 2014)
Tamsyn appears to have it all. A lush apartment in Paris, a job working at the best design agency and a hot boyfriend – albeit a secret one. But after five years away she’s back to her quiet hometown to celebrate her brother’s wedding. Cue a flood, the discovery of a mystery newborn and the impossible task of rustling up a wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses in only a few days – maybe Poldore isn’t so sleepy after all?
And then there’s Jed Edwards, the attractive priest, whom she can’t help but keep running into. Suddenly Poldore is looking a lot more appealing than her glamourous life in Paris. But will she have enough faith to risk it all on someone she just met?
WRITTEN IN THE STARS BY ALI HARRIS (out 5 June 2014)
Bea Bishop is horrible at making decisions. Forget big life ones, even everyday choices seem to paralyse her. She’s learned to live withthis because experience has taught her that it doesn’t matter what you do, no one has the power to control destiny. Anyone who believes they can is a fool. But as her wedding day approaches, her years ofindecision are weighing heavily on her, and she can’t help but wonder, ‘What if, what if, what if….’
What if she hadn’t upped stick and moved to London? What if she hadn’t grabbed the first job that camealong and settled down with the first guy who showed an interest? But all of her questions are silenced when she slips while walking down the aisle and is knocked unconscious. In this split second her life splits into two: in one existence, Bea flees back down the aisle and out of the church. In the other she glides blissfully towards her intended. But which story will lead to her happily ever after?
This was just a little appetizer. There are many more books I am looking forward to. Can’t wait to read more of Lindsey Kelk, Cecelia Ahern, Sarah Morgan, Miranda Dickinson, Jenny Hale and more! What are your books your are looking forward in 2014? I’d love to hear from you!
