In this new feature, published on the last Wednesday of each month, I will take a look at five books set to be published in the next month that I am looking forward to. This month, we have an instant classic being published from a familiar name.
Instant classic: Go Set a Watchman (Harper Lee)-if you didn’t know this was coming, you should have. Sequel to the bestselling classic To Kill a Mockingbird (14 July 2015)
Crime fiction: A Man of Some Repute (Elizabeth Edmondson)-regular readers will know I am a sucker for well written detective dramas, and this first in a new series promises to be a great read (1 July 2015)
Non-fiction: Guide to the House of Commons 2015 (The Times)-this book from leading British newspaper The Times coming just after the election promises not only to be a fascinating read, but to contain the same journalistic quality as the newspaper (2 July 2015)
High drama: The Kelly Sisters (Maureen Lee)-I hadn’t heard of Lee before this, but this tale of isolation and despair with an overarching mystery sounds intriguing (30 July 2015)
Military history: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Uniforms of World War II (Jonathan North)-it may be aimed a little low, but this guide to the military dress of the Second World War promises to be an informative and interesting read (31 July 2015)
Bonus (biography): Tornado Over the Tigris: Recollections of a Fast Jet Pilot (Michael Napier)-I always find modern history is incredible to learn about, and Napier’s memories of not only the Gulf War, but of the Cold War stationed in Germany make this book sound like one not to miss (30 July 2015)
