Cult books of 2013

Resolved to read more? This is a good year to start. Literary highlights of the next 12 months include Stephen King's follow-up to The Shining, Helen Fielding's revival of Bridget Jones and William Boyd's new James Bond adventure. There are some huge debuts too, from Ayana Mathis's Oprah-approved The Twelve Tribes of Hattie to Seth Patrick's Reviver, which is already being turned into a Hollywood film. Courtney Love has an explosive autobiography in the offing and Gwyneth Paltrow sees the release of a second cookbook.
