Anissa I'm excited for Carrie Vaughn's The Wild Dead. It's the second in her Bannerless Saga. I was introduced to this world of hers in a short story in apocalyptic compilation The End Has Come (The Apocalypse Tiptych #3) and have been excited to see what's next.

Susan I'm looking forward to reading Oh my God what a complete Aisling by Emer McLysaght and Sarah Breen. It's had a lot of publicity and started on social media. I haven't seen their Facebook page so will be meeting the character for the first time.
