Most Anticipated - May Edition

Bah! It's only the first week of May and I'm falling behind on posts and reading.  Already this month I've had to make a hard call on not finishing a book.

Political factions vie for control of the implied message, threatening her aspirations, her aerie, her entire way of life.

Most Anticipated - April Edition

A new month means new books, because what I need is to add more books to my never ending list of things I want to read.  There a lot of interesting books being released in April that I would like to read at some point.  However, there are two that I will make sure to hopefully get into my reading rotation sooner rather than later.  Which makes these book my Most Anticipated for April!

 

 

Release: April 5

Author: Marie Brennan

Genre: Fantasy

Series: Lady Trent #4

Shelf: Own, soon as I finish #3.

 

In this, the fourth volume of her memoirs, Lady Trent relates how she acquired her position with the Royal Scirling Army; how foreign saboteurs imperiled both her work and her well-being; and how her determined pursuit of knowledge took her into the deepest reaches of the Labyrinth of Drakes, where the chance action of a dragon set the stage for her greatest achievement yet.

 

 

 

Release: April 12

Author: Joe Abercrombie

Genre: Grimdark Fantasy

Series: First Law #7

Shelf: Library

 

From New York Times bestselling author, Joe Abercrombie, comes a collection of award-winning short fiction set in the world of the First Law.

 

As usual a big thanks to Goodreads for the brief description of each book.  I'm a book being on the Lady Trent series so I need to get caught up before buying the new installment.  As for Sharp Ends, I know it's going to hurt but I have missing Logan Ninefingers.  What is everyone else looking forward to this month?  Anything I should add to my list?

Most Anticipated - March Edition

How is it March already?!  I swear February just started this last week.  My reading plans for the month were shattered by life.  I have zero idea where my month went so quickly.  Still, a new month means new releases are either already here since the month started on Monday, or are almost here!  That means there are a few I'm a little more excited to get my hands on.  This will be my March Most Anticipated!!

 

A Study in Charlotte - Brittany Cavallaro

Release Date: March 1st

Author: Brittany Cavallaro

Genre: Mystery & Young Adult

Series: Charlotte Holmes #1

Shelf: Library

 

The last thing sixteen-year-old Jamie Watson–writer and great-great-grandson of the John Watson–wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s enigmatic, fiercely independent great-great-granddaughter, who’s inherited not just his genius but also his vices, volatile temperament, and expertly hidden vulnerability.

Release Date: March 1st

Author: Mark Tompkins

Shelf: Library

 

An epic novel of magic and mysticism, Celts and faeries, mad kings and druids, and the goddess struggling to reign over magic's last outpost on the Earth.

Join fifteen of today’s most talented writers of young adult literature on a thrill ride through history with American girls charting their own course. They are monsters and mediums, bodyguards and barkeeps, screenwriters and schoolteachers, heiresses and hobos. They're making their own way in often-hostile lands, using every weapon in their arsenals, facing down murderers and marriage proposals. And they all have a story to tell.

 

Rebel of the Sands - Alwyn Hamilton  

Release Date: March 8th

Author: Alwyn Hamilton

Genre: Fantasy

Series: Rebel of the Sands #1

Shelf: Library

 

Mortals rule the desert nation of Miraji, but mystical beasts still roam the wild and barren wastes, and rumor has it that somewhere, djinni still practice their magic. But there's nothing mystical or magical about Dustwalk, the dead-end town that Amani can't wait to escape from.

 

Release Date: March 8th

Author: Tony Cliff

Genre: Graphic Novel

Series: Delilah Dirk #2

Shelf: Own

 

When Delilah is framed as a spy by an English army officer, her passion for revenge threatens to sever her friendship with Selim. Is she willing to lose the companionship of her only good friend in order to reclaim her reputation?

 

Okay, so I'm probably the most excited for Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling.  I was super honored to have won Tony Cliff's first Delilah Dirk graphic novel not long after it was released through Goodreads.  I fell in love with his characters and the story, and I've been so excited for their return to print.  It will be one I stay up late to read, that's why they have coffee.  Right?!

 

Still, Delilah Dirk isn't the only thing I'm a little impatient to get my hands on.  Everything on this list has been added to my Hold list at the library since they went on order.  I'm on the top of the list to receive copies and I really, really hope they don't all come in while I'm on vacation.  I will not be amused.

 

As always thanks to Goodreads for the description of these books! You can click the books to see the full synopses on their profiles. What books are everyone else looking forward to?

Most Anticipated - January Edition

As part of a way for me to keep myself active on here between reviews and read-a-thons, I thought I would share my Most Anticipated books for each month.  My hope is that the rest of the year these will get up a little earlier in the month, if not around the time of my Monthly Wrap-Ups.  It's still a work in progress.  So the set up might change as the months pass as I find the best way to do this.

 

January's Most Anticipated Books:

Preparing for the Obon ceremony is boring. Then the local kids take an interest in Saki and she sees an opportunity for some fun, even if it means disrespecting her family's ancestral shrine on a malicious dare.

But as Saki rings the sacred bell, the darkness shifts. A death curse has been invoked... and Saki has three nights to undo it. With the help of three spirit guides and some unexpected friends, Saki must prove her worth - or say good-bye to the world of the living forever.

Shelf: Library - on Hold

Shallow Graves - Kali Wallace 

Release Date: January 26, 2016

Author: Kali Wallace

Genre: Young Adult & Paranormal

Series: Stand Alone

Shelf:  Library - onHold

 

When seventeen-year-old Breezy Lin wakes up in a shallow grave one year after her death, she doesn’t remember who killed her or why. All she knows is that she’s somehow conscious—and not only that, she’s able to sense who around her is hiding a murderous past. In life, Breezy was always drawn to the elegance of the universe and the mystery of the stars. Now she must set out to find answers and discover what is to become of her in the gritty, dangerous world to which she now belongs—where killers hide in plain sight and a sinister cult is hunting for strange creatures like her. What she finds is at once empowering, redemptive, and dangerous.

 

These are three books I'm most excited for this month.  I do have a lot of books on my TBR that will be released this month, but these are three I want to make sure get crossed off into the READ section of my GR shelves.  Also, the books description where pulled from their respective Goodreads page.

 

What about you all, what books are you looking forward too?
