U r also forgetting: the third book in: A poison dark and drowing series by jessica cluess is coming out in September!(:

Veda Waiting patiently for JD Robb's Leverage in Death (In Death, #47) by J.D. Robb presently

as well as 'Lethal White' Lethal White (Cormoran Strike, #4) by Robert Galbraith (listed above)

I had the pleasure this weekend to binge watch the Strike series via Cinemax (after reading the books first - of course!) It was 'awesome!'


message 4: by Anissa (new)

Anissa Cormoran & Robin can't get here fast enough for me! It feels like forever since the last Strike installment. I've pre-ordered & have immediately scheduled it into my reading time upon debut.

I completely agree! The third novel in the series was absolutely amazing and I am waiting (not so patiently) for this one!!!!

Amanda September is going to be a glorious reading month! I'm definitely excited about Lethal White & Vengeful. Though not a sequel, I'll also be reading Nine Perfect Strangers. However, all those have to be read (or put aside) before The Monster Baru Cormorant is released in October! I'm waiting impatiently on that one for sure. Now that I'm looking at this blog post, I may have to add the Three Dark Crowns to my reading list.

I haven't read them yet but my wife loves the series.


message 16: by Erika (new)

Erika Harris Janet Evanovich books coming out and definitely Cormoran Strike!


message 17: by Fiona (new)

Fiona Alexander A Death at Crystal Palace (Euphemia Martins Mysteries Book 11) by Caroline Dunford.
I love this series which is set in genteel Edwardian times. Like Agatha Christie's characters death seems to follow Euphemia around. It's been a while since the last book so I'm excited to wait for the October release of the latest.

Same. There are also a lot of books I want coming out on the 2nd of October and it’s just like, DO YOU WANT ME TO BECOME BANKRUPT?!?!?!


message 19: by Birgit (new)

Birgit Brunsted I am looking forward - and have been for some time - for Hilary Mantel's final book in the trilogy that began with Wolf Hall, and then number two Bring up the Bodies. The last one The Mirror and the Light will hopefully come out in 2019?
