Five Most Anticipated Releases for the Rest of 2015
2. The Winds of Winter by George R. R. Martin. Apparently this should be published before mid 2016. If I am honest, I haven't finished the current set of books (next to read is #4 A Feast for Crows) but I love reading the spoilers on asoiaf wikia...
3. The Reasons for Flowers by Stephen Buchmann. I've always been fascinated by the Victorians who were big on the symbolism of flowers, my father is also a gardener and so I'm really excited to learn more about flowers. This covers everything from food to medicine and more.
4. The Shepherd's Crown by Terry Pratchett. I have only just started on the Discworld novels and I think I will save this one for last.
5. Trigger Mortis by Anthony Horowitz. This book continues the James Bond saga and I've a sudden interest in James Bond (which has nothing to do with Christoph Waltz being in the new JB film...).
Five Books I'd Love To See A Movies/TV Shows
2. The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. There was a brilliant adaption of Bulgakov's A Country Doctor's Notebook featuring Daniel Radcliffe and Jon Hamm and this is the Bulgakov classic.
3. The Invention of Morel by Adolfo Bioy Casares. This is, to put it crudely, like the Argentine version of the Matrix. To say any more would ruin the plot but it is a philosophical thought-provoker.
4. The Ministry of Special Cases by Nathan Englander. This follows a Jewish family during the Argentine Dirty War in the 1970s; this book made me cry and what's worse it is shockingly historically accurate. Not many people know about the Argentine Dirty War and the terrible crimes that were committed including baby snatching which Argentina is still trying to address. I don't know why this isn't rated higher on GoodReads.
5. The Post Office Girl by Stefan Zweig. I think this could be done in an edgy way like Birdman with costuming à la The Great Gatsby.
