Terms & Conditions by Robert Glancy (Bloomsbury) – being likened to The Rosie Project, sounds excellent but big expectations to live up to

The Wives of Los Alamos by TaraShea Nesbit (Bloomsbury) – the retro cover does nothing for me but its contents sounds compelling

The Yellow Papers by Dominique Wilson (TransitLounge) – been eyeing this one off for a while, never been disappointed by a book from this little Australian publishing house

Whip Smart: Lola Montez and the Poisoned Nom de Plume by Kit Brennan (Astor + Blue) – I was enthralled by the action-packed first title in this series Whip Smart: Lola Montez Conquers the Spaniards so looking forward to seeing what Lola gets up to next

Dead Stars by Alvaro Bisama translated by Megan McDowell (Ox and Pigeon) – first upcoming novel release from new digital-only publisher focusing on translations

Blade of the Samurai by Susan Spann, #2 Shinobi Series (Minotaur Books) – participating in the HFVBT blog tour for this title’s release in July

Martin Harbottle’s Appreciation of Time by Dominic Utton (Bloomsbury – Oneworld) – a novel of letters, sounds quirky

    Martin Harbottle’s Appreciation of Time sounds quirky but after commuting for 20 years I can relate to the frustration of trains not keeping to their schedules.

      Yes, the daily commute involves a whole list of frustrations, whether waiting for public transport or being stuck behind the wheel in a traffic jam – plenty of scope for humourous observations I suspect.
