I was kicking myself when I missed last week’s prompt. Because as much as I’ve read almost a couple of hundred books last year, there simply wasn’t enough time to get through what TBR pile I’ve amassed throughout 2014.
I’m so glad that this week is a freebie, because then I have a chance to create a list that have been featured in the past. In this case, the immediate past. So I thought I’d go ahead and showcase the books published last year that I didn’t get to read that I wanted to so badly.
On the heels of my Sandra Brown reading romp last year, I realized that there’s a lot to be had in the suspense aisle of my bookstore. James Patterson has written 28,498,308,043 books (give or take). I didn’t want to jump into his popular Alex Cross series, because I only have time for stand alone nowadays. Invisible seem like the perfect diving board into the world of James Patterson.
I went to New York City last spring. For about a couple of weeks, I missed its hustle and bustle. The Heiresses, as the title indicates, is about the daughters of the privileged Saybrooks: diamond empire, with a family secret to boot, and yeah, they rule NYC.
Am I the only one who hasn’t read this one yet? In my defence, this sounds like a Science Fiction novel. IT IS a Science Fiction novel. I’m wary, but after all the glowing reviews for this series, there is no question that I need to read this one, stat.
By show of hands, how many of y’all are familiar with Henry David Thoreau? No? Well, me either. That is what grabbed me when I first laid eyes on this book. Once in a while, I do like to read about things or people that I don’t know. While this one is probably a fictional take on Thoreau’s life, it’s at least a step in the right direction.
All you really need to know is that this is a twist to Sleeping Beauty.
This sounds like a barrel of fun; complete with a missing missile. Someone at the bookstore practically shoved this book to my face, but I haven’t had the opportunity to crack open its spine. Hopefully this year.
World War Z meets The Children of Men? How could I have not read this as soon as I got home from the bookstore? This sounds like the perfect horror read.
HILLARY RODHAM MOTHERFUCKING CLINTON. That’s all. #Whitehouseorbust
This book has connotations of a supernatural in nature. But I was surprised to find out that it’s about someone with a debilitating disorder. I wanted to read it because I thought it would be an interesting read.
I wasn’t too keen on reading books about dragons, no matter how kick ass they may sound. I am however, a fan of Kelley Armstrong. It sucks that I didn’t get to this last year.
What’s your freebie list today?
