#IMAGEReads: Seven stories we can’t wait to read this year

#IMAGEReads: Seven stories we can’t wait to read this year

These are the page-turning stories that are sure to have everyone talking over the next 12 months, writes Jennifer McShane


Blood Orange by Harriet Tyce (Wildfire, approx. €16.99, February 21)

Alison has it all. Loving husband and a growing career. But when she’s given her first murder case, slowly we see nothing is as it seems. Her client’s story is amiss. Alison needs to save her more than she realises.

Sarah Davis Goff’s Last Ones Left Alive (Tinder Press, approx. €12.99,  March 7)

Growing up on a tiny island off the coast of a post-apocalyptic Ireland, Orpen and Mave’s life has survived the ravenous skrake who look for prey. When Maeve is bitten, Orpen must go on a life-altering journey to save her.

Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid (Hutchinson, approx. €16.99, March 7)

This page-turner details the whirlwind rise of an iconic 1970s rock group and their beautiful lead singer, revealing the mystery behind their infamous breakup. No one knew the real story – until now. Reese Witherspoon is also a big fan.  

Memories of the Future by Siri Hustvedt (Sceptre, approx. €18.99, March 19)

In this exuberant story, we meet S.H, a woman living her first year in New York City in the late 1970s and her obsession with her mysterious neighbour, Lucy Brite. She’s driven to transcribe Lucy’s bizarre monologues into a novel – until they become something else entirely.

The Dollmaker by Nina Allan ((Riverrun, approx €12.99, out April 4)

This is the story of a remarkable doll maker and the writer with a troubled past who becomes his pen pal. They bond over these dolls; two unusual people with a very real love story. This is a uniquely beautiful read.  

The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary  (Quercus, approx. €16.99, April 18)

Tiffy Moore needs a cheap flat, and fast. Leon Twomey works nights and needs cash. Leon occupies the one-bed flat while Tiffy’s at work in the day. It sounds like a sure plan, but it quickly gets out of hand – to say the least. A real charmer.   

The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna by Juliet Grames (Hodder & Stoughton, approx. €16.99, May 16)

This wonderful debut tells the story of Stella Fortuna, and her journey through immigration, marriage, children, loss – and the seven (or eight, depending) near-death experiences she suffered throughout her life.
