Daily Candy posted an article about their most anticipated books for this year…I read over the list and while most of them didn’t interest me, I did find a couple of interesting gems so I’m throwing them on my digital book pile. I took recommendations from io9 last year though and was mostly disappointed. Here’s hoping these suggestions prove more entertaining!
Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi
–The Snow White story retold (again)…the line from the blurb that drew me: “fearlessly tackles complicated issues like race and female competitiveness, even as it tells a fascinating story.”
Frog Music by Emma Donoghue
–Author of Room (which is amazing)…this title is a work of historical fiction based on a crime in 1876 San Francisco.
The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
–a flight of magic and fantasy, what drew my eye: “set partially in a near-future Ireland after the world’s climate has collapsed.”
