Fill Up Your Bookshelf with New Books

New ReleasesThis fall book season can be one the most fruitful in recent years. Publishers are planning massive book release expansion, booksellers rub their hands and book readers make space on their bookshelves :)


Upcoming months will be interesting due to popular authors' new publications which are must-have and must-read by many readers. J. K. Rowling's fans cannot skip The Casual Vacancy (Sep 27) which is author's first book aimed at adult readers.  Pulitzer Prize-winners Junot Díaz (awarded in 2008 for The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao) and Michael Chabon (awarded in 2001  for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay) are releasing on September 11 This Is How You Lose Her and Telegraph Avenue respectively. Literary fiction readers will be happy to find new book by Ian McEwan Sweet Tooth (Nov 13) and Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior (Nov 6) as well as Emma Donoghue's Astray (Oct 30) and Silent House by Orham Pamuk. 


Those who love series will be thrilled as many writers decided to reveal next book parts in Sep-Nov period. Let's just mention Justin Cronin's The Twelve (Oct 16) book two in The Passage Trilogy, Winter of the World by Ken Follet (second installment in Century Trilogy, Sep 18), Riordan's third book in Heroes of Olympus The Mark of Athena (Oct 2), Lee Child's next Jack Reacher adventures in A Wanted Man (Sep 11), Stephanie Plum’s mystery Notorious Nineteen (Nov 20) by Janet Evanovich, Nora Roberts’s The Perfect Hope (no. 3 in The Inn Trilogy) and Lullaby by Amanda Hocking (Watersong Novels, Nov 27).

Grab the first line! How 'classy' are you?

First Line BookLikesIt is said that IT IS THE FIRST LINE that grabs the reader, holds tight and drags into the literary world. We've selected eight classics and cut out their first sentences - do you recognize them?


Can you guess where does the first line go and put the book quotes in right order?




1.Nighteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell 2.The Trial by Franz Kafka 3.Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy 4.One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

5.Fahrenheir 451 by Ray Bradbury 6.The Catcher in the Rye by Salinger 7.Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 8.Moby Dick by Herman Melville 


Call me Ishmael.


* Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice.


* It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.


It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.


* Someone must have slandered Josef K., for one morning, without having done anything truly wrong, he was arrested. 


* If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.


Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.


It was a pleasure to burn.


So how 'classy' are you? And how about your own favorite first lines?
