Hello everyone! I had a few ideas for this week’s Pryday question and even wrote an entire post using one of my ideas, but it didn’t feel like the right question for today. So after thinking about my week in reading I realized that what I really want to know is:
What books that are being published this fall and winter are you looking forward to the most?
I got very excited this week when I found out that Ian Rankin has a new Malcolm Fox mystery coming out next month. I loved the first one in the series and was hoping that he’d continue on with this new character and I’m pleased to see that he has!
I also sat up with interest at the announcement of P.D. James’s Pride and Prejudice mystery spin-off, Death Comes to Pemberley. I love James’s writing and am really looking forward to reading this which is supposed to be published in December.
Coming in January is a new book from one of my favorite writers on religion and spirituality, Lauren Winner. Her book Still: Notes on a Mid-Faith Crisis continues her direct and honest probing of modern religious life.
How about you? What forthcoming books are you most excited about?

You’re lucky to already be in possession of some of the books you’ve been anticipating!
I hadn’t heard about Lauren Winner’s new book – which goes straight on the list, thanks! I read her two earlier books last year, and I bought a copy of Mudhouse Sabbath. Also on the “waiting” list is Penelope Lively’s new book, How It All Began, and Susan Hil’s The Betrayal of Trust. I have been waiting for Terry Pratchett’s latest, Snuff, which I finally got last week.
Yay, glad to hear of another Lauren Winner fan. I love her books!
I’ve read a couple of Lively’s books and will check out her newest as I really liked her writing.
I’m waiting for the new SusanHill too, and to new novels coming next year from Emily Perkins and Georgina Harding.
When you say next year it seems so long to wait, but it’s really just around the corner, isn’t it?!
