Last year was the first year of the Waterstone’s 11, 11 new authors with 11 new books to be released that year. This year they are doing it again, which is rather exciting.
Last year I said I would read the previews of each book which were given on the Waterstone’s website, and I pretty much failed, although I did get round to reading the whole of two of the books, and one was one of my top reads of 2011. I am hoping to do a bit better with that plan this year.
This year’s list is:
Waterstone’s 11 2012 (on the Waterstone’s website)
When God was a Rabbbit (here)
Pigeon English (here)
