Reading Ahead: December 2012, part 1

I can't imagine where the time is going, that we are already talking about books to be released in December! The list for next month's releases is lean, but mean.  There may not be tons of books to put on your request or holiday list, but those that are due out are sure to be winners.

Bone Tree, by Greg Iles

Two Graves, by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child

The Child’s Child, by Barbara Vine

Shadow Creek, by Joy Fielding

Valley of the Shadow, by Carola Dunn

So, of course, the question now is, what does the librarian add to her list?  For me, the dynamic duo of Preston & Child can do little wrong.  And if you're wondering about Barbara Vine?  You many not know that this is actually a pen name of bestselling author Ruth Rendell.  A fan of Rendell's?  Looks like you have a new treasure trove of books to read!  Finally, in addition to Vine's newest, if you're a mystery reader, you really ought to try Carola Dunn's Cornish mystery series.  Wry, witty, and very readable.

Hope everyone's survived the storm, and I'll be back next week with the other half of the up-and-coming titles.  Happy reading!
