And Genevieve Turner has a series she's writing by herself too. Know that I'm excited for all of these too even if they do not yet have titles, covers, or release dates.

NEW KATE MILFORD!!!!!

Hallie needs to see that Lie Tree cover - it's gorgeous, her best US cover ever, but wow, it hammers home her chief criticism with the work.

...I shouldn't say that on a post where you talk about how excited you are for it, should I? :)

Excellent list! Personally, my body is ready for Rebel of the Sands, Truthwitch, and Passenger. I won't have to wait long for two of those, thankfully!

I'm excited for many of these!Especially N.D. Wilson and Victoria Schwab. Did you know that Robin Stevens actually has first 3 books of Wells and Wong mystery out, just in British edition? "Murder is bad manners" is "Murder most unladylike" in Britain for example; all 3 are already available on Amazon.;)

I haven't read ANY reviews of The Lie Tree because I haven't read it yet. So yes, hush.
Brandy said…
Truthwitch looks interesting, but my standards for those sorts of fantasy books are VERY HIGH so I'm also wary.

I did know that! Unless a book is ONLY available in the UK, I tend to wait until it is released in the US. I don't even have an Amazon account. :)

TTT: Most Recent Additions to My TBR List

Serafina and the Black Cloak

Serafina and the Black Cloak  by Robert Beatty is a thrilling tale of mystery and adventure set at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC in 1899. Having lived in Asheville and visited the house several times, there was no way I was going to pass up a chance to read this. (Also it's MG fantasy, always a bonus for me.) Serafina lives in secret in the basement of the Vanderbilt's spacious vacation home. She has lived there most of her life. Her father worked on the house as it was being built and is the mechanic who runs the massive generator and keeps the electricity going. Serafina is the chief rat catcher, slipping through the halls of her massive home secretly and quietly. She is light on her feet, sees well in the dark, and is quick enough to catch the vermin and keep them out. Serafina knows she if different and strange. Her father insists she stay hidden. But all that changes when one night Serafina witnesses a horrible crime. A little girl, a guest in the house, is fleein

Shorter Musings MG Fantasy

Here are some shorter musings on recent MG fantasy reads. Anya and the Dragon   by Sofiya Pasternack This book is fun. It is a book full of adventure, an obvious bad guy, some more complicated morally gray area characters, and a strong, brave heroine. It is also a book about friendships, community, and fighting for what is right. All things that usually work for me really well. While I enjoyed this, I did feel it was a little overlong and there were certain plot points at the end I didn't love. However, there were things I thought were done really well, such as Anya's Jewish faith and the idea that power needs to be challenged. In the end it was a middle of the road read for me, but it is one I will certainly be recommending to dragon and fantasy adventure lovers I know! R is for Rebel   by J. Anderson Coats This is tough because I usually really like Coats's books. I had such a hard time with this one though on so many levels. It's difficult to get into because t

Shadowshaper

Shadowshaper  by Daniel José Older is everywhere. Best of lists. Award buzz. Blogs everywhere. It's one of those books everyone is reading and talking about. I had it on my TBR but decided I definitely needed to read it before the year was out just so I could weigh in on one of the most talked about books of 2015 if asked. It is deserving of every good thing said about it. Every. One. Sierra was looking forward to a relaxing summer break. Her plans involved hanging out with her friends and painting. They did not involve being chased by zombie like creatures and threatened by a magical power connected to her family's heritage she has never heard of. When murals begin fading all over her Brooklyn neighborhood, Sierra is perplexed. When her grandfather, who had a stroke, begins to apologize and starts repeating strange phases and insisting Sierra get the help of a boy she barely knows to help her finish her mural, Sierra is concerned but mostly about her grandfather. Then at a
