1. A Thousand Pardons by Jonathan Dee
I discovered Jonathan Dee a few months ago, reading two of his books back to back. I haven’t worked through his whole back catalogue yet but I’ll look forward to this one.
2. MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood
Margaret’s being a bit of a slowpoke getting book three of the MaddAddam trilogy out but apparently it’s due for next year so bring it on.
I always get pretty excited when any of these writers release something new – so this is more of a wishlist really:
3. Joan Didion
4. Jeffrey Eugenides
5. Jonathan Franzen
6. Ann Patchett
7. Adam Ross
8. Dan Chaon
Both Chaon and Ross have recently published short story collections, but I say meh to that! Put your novel-writing hats on dudes.
9. Justin Cronin
Okay so I know The Twelve only came out about a month ago. But I want Cronin to work his fingers to the bone to finish his zompire/vambie trilogy. Go, Justin, go!
Hey, wait a minute, that’s me! I am going to try my darndest to get my next book out in 2013. Fingers crossed.
Which books are you looking forward to in 2013? Do you have a favourite author you wish would damn well hurry up and publish something new?
