- Zadie Smith, NW: I'm a big fan of Zadie and have read most of her other books. I'm hoping this is going to be a better version of John Lanchester's Capital (reviewed here) as both use the city of London itself as a main focus. NW has released in paperback, so I might have to pick it up.
- Khalid Hosseini, And the Mountains Echoed: I found A Thousand Splendid Suns and The Kite Runner, incredibly moving. Hossenini has recently been criticised for portraying Afghanistan only negatively, but I am interested to see his latest offering.
- AM Homes, May We be Forgiven: Homes recently won the 2013 prize for Women's Fiction. If she can beat the mighty Hilary Mantel, I'm curious to find out why.
