I'm also figuring we will get new books from Laura Florand and the next book in the series Emma Barry and Genevieve Turner are writing together. 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. 



    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? :)

    1. I haven't read ANY reviews of The Lie Tree because I haven't read it yet. So yes, hush.

  2. 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!

    1. Truthwitch looks interesting, but my standards for those sorts of fantasy books are VERY HIGH so I'm also wary.

  3. 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.;)

    1. 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. :)
