Future Favorites Friday

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments.

Raina Telgemeier is long time favorite, especially when it comes to her realistic stories that she pulls from her real life. This new one is sure to be good.

Raina wakes up one night with a terrible upset stomach. Her mom has one, too, so it's probably just a bug. Raina eventually returns to school, where she's dealing with the usual highs and lows: friends, not-friends, and classmates who think the school year is just one long gross-out session. It soon becomes clear that Raina's tummy trouble isn't going away... and it coincides with her worries about food, school, and changing friendships. What's going on?

Raina Telgemeier once again brings us a thoughtful, charming, and funny true story about growing up and gathering the courage to face -- and conquer -- her fears.

If Sarah Prineas writes it, I'm going to read it. I've loved every single book she's written. The fact that there are dragons in this one is a bonus.

Release: September 10, 2019 from Scholastic

Rafi Bywater is unlike anyone else. The people in his village don’t trust him because he spends too much time in an abandoned dragon lair. When a stranger, Mister Flitch, accuses Rafi of being “dragon-touched,” Rafi sets off to discover the truth about dragons—and about himself.

On his journey, Rafi befriends a brilliant scientist, Maud, who has secrets of her own. Together they search for dragons while escaping from a dangerous dragon hunter, engaging in a steam-engine car chase, and figuring out what Mister Flitch really wants with Rafi. And, oh yes, they do find the dragons.

Release: March 26, 2019 by Harper Collins

Lucy Parker's London Celebrities Series is one of my all time favorite romance series. The next one is going to have an Austen element and be Freddy's book so I'm extra excited about it.

In which experienced West End actress Freddy Carlton, who's been on the stage since childhood,takes on an Austen-inspired play, scandal at a country estate, an enthusiastic search for a passion outside of acting...and the (some people might say icy*) heart of London's most feared theatre critic.

Release: April 2019 by Carina Press

I just read Making Up. Liked it a lot. This Austen theme sounds great.

Pretty sure you're the one who nudged me toward Lucy Parker, so, thanks!
