My 2014 Recommendations/Wish List

Dear Santa,
I would like all of the below .... Wait? What do you mean I'm too late?!
Ah well... I guess I'll just have to keep wishing!!!!

David Gilbert '& Sons' / Helen Dunmore 'The Lie' / Christoper Golden 'Snow Blind' / Luca Vesta 'Dead Gone'

Sue Monk Kidd 'The Invention of Wings' / JoJo Moyes 'The One Plus One' / Natalie Young 'Season to taste or how to eat your husband / Adele Parks 'Spare Brides'
Helen Walsh 'The Lemon Grove' / Rebecca Mascull 'The Visitors' / Emma Donoghue 'Frog Music' / Matthew Quick 'Forgive me Leonard Peacock'
Jonathan Lethem 'Dissident Gardens' / Nelson DeMille 'The Quest' / Andrew Pyper 'The Demonologist' / Hannah Beckerman 'The Dead Wife's Handbook'
Luke Delaney 'The Toy Taker' / Ben Watt 'Patient' / Harlan Coben 'Missing You' / Kimberley McCreight 'Reconstructing Amelia'
And last, but by no means least, a book by a local author...
Costa Book Awards 'First Novel' winner 2013
Nathan Filer 'The Shock of the Fall'
I'm going to try my best to get through as many of these as I can this year, and I really can't wait to get stuck in! I'm also eagerly awaiting publishing dates for authors who I think may be releasing novels later in the year... but I guess I'll update this when I know more!
