Top Ten Tuesday - 2014 Releases

This week's Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish is about the most anticipated releases of 2014.  This is kind of a challenge for me because I am a dunce and clueless and don't really pay attention to releases.  I think it's somewhat related to the way I read which is mostly by whim.  I don't really plan or anticipate and I don't read a ton of new releases.  I do love series of books which I get sucked into and can get obsessed with the next one in line but I usually wait until a series is complete before I start it with the occasional exception.  

This translates into that there aren't any big upcoming releases that I am really coveting.  But I'll see what I can come up with below.

Product Details
The Dead and Their Vaulted Arches by Alan Bradley: I do like the Flavia DeLuce series ( though the books do occasionally irritate me) and it looks like a a new one in the series will be release in January.

William Shakespeare's The Empire Striketh Back by Ian Doescher I remember hearing about the first one which was a retelling of Star Wars in Shakespeare's style and being intrigued.  I love me some Shakespeare and some space opera so I'd like to check these out some time.

Deception's Princess by Esther Friesner:  This just caught my eye and looks interest - strong female heroine, Ireland and some romance - sign me up!  I have never read anything by this author but it says she is award winning so that bodes well for this books quality. Released in April.

Blood and Beauty by Sarah Dunant:  I'm a bog fan of Sarah Dunant's historical fiction and this is a book about the Borgias!  Though I just noticed that even though this came up in my future releases list it was actually published this past July.  No matter - I'm keeping it on here because it looks awesome.  Looks like it will be release in paperback in March 2014.

Deranged Marriage: A Memoir by Sushi Das: This appears to be a memoir about growing up Indian in 1970's London.  Looks like it might be one of those memoirs that makes you laugh and feel appalled all at the same time.  Released in April.

Doctor Who: 11 Doctors, 11 Stories:  This makes my little Doctor Who fangirl heart speed up a bit.  Fun!  Released in February.

The Splendour Falls by Susanna Kearsley:  I've not heard anything about this book or this author but it hints that she combine Gothic mystery, history and romance.  Sounds like a quick fun read.  I think just a new format of the book will be released in January.

I think I'll stop there or I'll be up all night perusing books!  Kind of haphazard list but it was fun exploring.  I'll look forward to seeing what other people are anticipating!
