books for the reading diary for 2014

As 2013 begins to fade into the rear view thought I'd take a moment to list some translations forthcoming for next year, some delayed and carried over from 2013. I've not managed to fathom too many new translations at the moment, which is slightly disheartening, but hopefully this list will be added upon as time goes on, another addition will be the translation of the latest offering from Murakami which I think is due in the first half of the year, any further suggestions are indeed welcome.
