message 1: by Carlota (new)

Carlota House of Earth and Blood

So looking forward to this! Love Sara J. Maas' work!

Also ''The Unspoken Name'' by A.K. Larkwood looks great!


message 2: by Erin (new)

Erin I would do just about anything to get my hands on Jemisin's latest


message 3: by Dennis (new)

Dennis Eoffe 3 of these look pretty great - Jemisin, already got the Larkwood book and the Vanished Birds looks intriguing


message 4: by John (new)

John What about "All Expenses Paid", by John Launer? You need to feature his book. It's receiving great comments and should be listed for your followers. They shouldn't miss out on this book.


message 5: by F.J. (new)

F.J. Commelin ''The city we became ''and ''The boatman's daughter'' make me curious for the stories.


message 6: by Bloom (new)

Bloom I like the mix of love, fear and survival in "The Boatman's Daughter. Bayous are very mysterious. I like visiting those in Fiction. I like "The Bear" too. I have an interest lately in the relationships of daughters with fathers or mothers.


message 7: by Brenda (new)

Brenda I can't wait to read Eoin Colfer's HIGHFIRE! It sounds like a great mix of suspense, vengeance, friendship, & redemption!


message 8: by Christopher (new)

Christopher Heckman A brief summary would be nice.


message 9: by Kristin (new)

Kristin Lea I've preordered The City We Became and warned my family that once it arrives on my doorstep, I will be doing nothing else but reading it until I finish it.


message 10: by Orlanda Thompson (new)

Orlanda Thompson I agree with Erin, above. I preordered THE CITY WE BECAME as soon as I could. Just wish that those who preordered their books could receive their copies now ....


message 11: by Misha (new)

Misha Definitely the Jemisin. Only one other that I’ve on my list is the Ken Liu (other than the two I’ve already read)... Some of the descriptions aren’t compelling enough. I would have to hold the book in hand and decide on a few, since I picked up Upright Women in a whim and the others are all known authors.


message 12: by Trish (new)

Trish Already read "Tumbling Down" and "Longer Fall" -- both excellent! Two of my favorite authors.


message 13: by Marianne (new)

Marianne I am looking forward to Jim Bucher's Peace Talks due out this summer. A long anticipated continuation of his Dresden Files.This is the origin of urban fantasy by the master.


message 14: by Trish (new)

Trish @Marianne it feels like we’ve been waiting for that book even longer than Winds of Winter


message 15: by Catalina (new)

Catalina Z The Hidden Girl by Ken Liu! Looking forward to it.


message 16: by Livy (last edited Feb 21, 2020 05:40AM) (new)

Livy The God Game looks so good


message 17: by Lisa (new)

Lisa A Longer Fall! I do like Gunnie Rose!


message 18: by Swann (new)

Swann I’m really excited for Docile. Even if I end up not enjoying the book, it would still look pretty on my shelf.


message 19: by George (new)

George The City We Became I wish would just magically appear at my doorstep it sounds so good omg
