Most Anticipated Books of 2014

For two years now, my goal has been to read as many different kinds of novels as I can. I’ve tried out several different genres/subgenres that I normally would not, and the experience has helped me in becoming a better reader and a reviewer. Being a prolific reader and reviewer is all about diversity, in all its different forms. And that’s what I’ve come to value most.

Still, its not that easy, dealing with the diversity, or just the sheer volume of all the reading. When I put together the 2013 list of my most anticipated books (link), I intended to read all of them. But sadly that never happened and somewhere along the way I just lost track. The 2013 list had 51 books on it. The 2014 list has 41 books on it. A much more manageable number I dare say.

We’ll see how the year pans out and whether or not I will indeed be able to get through all them. I remain hopeful as ever. And there will be some more lists going up in the next couple weeks, so stay tuned for those.

Ideas and Execution

Been somewhat of a while since I’ve done a post on actual writing stuff so I thought I’d correct that oversight. The last few months, as I’ve mentioned in my monthly reports, have been rather hectic on all accounts and blogging isn’t really as high on the priority list as it used to be. My apologies to all the readers for that. The fact is that I’m too much of an infrequent blogger who’d love to blog far more regularly. Its just that life keeps intervening in one form or another. Anyway, as I specifically mentioned in the May Report, I’ve had some ideas gestating in the back of my mind recently that I’m really excited about. Two of them are linked quite directly while the third is on its own.

More after the break.
