Some months I barely add to my TBR and others I seem to find endless new books that pique my interest. March has definitely been the latter but I’ve selected just five of my most anticipated to share with you which I think will be great reads.
The first on my March list is a novel published this year entitled Forty Rooms by Olga Grushin internationally acclaimed author of The Dream Life of Sukhanov. It is described as “totally original in conception and magnificently executed” and the idea of the novel is that every woman will inhabit forty rooms in her lifetime. I’m very interested to read this and since it is also said to “outshines even that prizewinning novel” (The Dream Life of Sukhanov) I’m betting it’s a good read.
Another newly published novel is second on my list from an author who I admire for his incredible book The Life of Pi. The High Mountains of Portugal by Yann Martel is set to be completely different from his other famous novel but it has as its centre the characters of his story and this is an element of Martel’s writing that I enjoy so I’m excited for this book.
The final fiction novel on my list this month is set to be published in May and from an author completely new to me. I’ve chosen The Yoga of Max’s Discontent by Karan Bajaj because the blurb sounds interesting and in general I tend to enjoy books which involve both physical and inner journeys as this one does.
I recently finished Mark Schaefer’s The Tao of Twitter a concise and interesting book which has led me to his latest book The Content Code by Mark Schaefer. I found Tao very useful and I enjoyed both Schaefer’s voice and style of sharing information so I expect to find this book equally as useful.
APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur. How to Publish a Book by Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch is last on my list and another non fiction book writers looking to self publish should find helpful and which is a recommended read if you intend to self publish your novel or ebook.
Have you read or want to read any of these?
