Most Anticipated in 2014 - Fiction

Best of Books

Welcome to the Best Of Books Blog Hop 2013 – hostedby Diane Estrella, an enthusiastic blogger who does a lot to promote other bloggers, as well as books.

The anticipation is almost as much fun as reading! Today I'm sharing the books I most look forward to reading in 2014, some familiar and beloved authors, others new. I love emotionally engaging stories with rich characterization, multi-layered plots, and lyrical prose - and these titles certainly grab my attention. Books are listed in alphabetical order by author's last name.

The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron

With Every Breath by Elizabeth Camden

The Spymistress by Jennifer Chiaverini

  1. So many stunning book covers! I am kind of a book cover snob I have to admit!

  2. Wow great and unique list you got here! I haven't heard of many of these so I'm glad you did this post! :)

  3. Hi Diane - Thanks for including THE BUTTERFLY AND THE VIOLIN in your list for 2014! We still have several months before it's released, but I hope you enjoy it when it's finally in your hands. ; ) I'm quite honored to be included in this list of amazing authors!

    Blessings - Kristy

  4. Carole, Really thrilled to be here and also to read Diane's and Laura's kind comments! And I have to put in a shout out for Kristy's novel here. I just finished reading it for endorsement and let me tell you, you and others are in for a rare treat. The story is just as beautiful as the cover and twice as compelling. Your list here matches mine almost to the letter:) Thanks for being a kindred reading spirit!
