Shelf Pleasure Book Club – Week of January 6

Book Club - Shelf Pleasure

Hi Fellow Book Club Readers!

After the excesses of the holiday season, January marks the perfect time to stay in and curl up with a good book. From the best of the new releases to our book trailer of the week, check out our Shelf Pleasure recommended reads to kick start your year in books. And we want to know, what is your first title of 2014? See our pick down below!

We also welcome romance author Alison DeLaine, who explains why she is not to be mistaken for a romantic heroine herself, while author Leigh Russell shares how she can write such dark tales—and how, in fiction, crime transforms into entertainment.

Here are the must-reads on Shelf Pleasure this week:

 

For our personal reading this week, we’re finally diving into The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (also known as J.K. Rowling). This twisty mystery is very different from what you might expect from the writer who gifted us with Harry Potter, but if you lose those expectations you might just find yourself having a grand old time.
