Mark Lawrence Goodreads has Chain of Thorns down for 2021 release and the trilogy not even starting until 2019. What did I miss?

You are correct in your dates. I believe that Clare changed the publication order of this series and The Dark Artifices (TDA is now scheduled to be published first, then TLH the next year/later in the year. On the exact year I am not quite sure.)

Can somebody remove Bloodwitch? It got pushed to 2019.


message 7: by Leah (last edited Nov 11, 2017 01:19PM) (new)

Leah Currently on page 1 at #27, The Girl in the Tower (The Winternight Trilogy #2) by Katherine Arden needs removed from this Can't Wait 2018 list. Publication was moved up to 12/5/2017.

See publisher page here

Also on page 3, currently #279, The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld needs removed because it was already released in September 2017.

This has now been removed from this listopia.

Both have now been removed from this listopia.

Indeed it was. The book has now been removed from this listopia.

I wasn't referencing a specific tweet; otherwise, I would've linked to only one tweet. I was referring to the author's Twitter profile (section below photo) in which she states, "Author of THE WITCH OF WISHES, coming Spring 2019 from @DelacortePress."

message 17: by Donna (new)

Donna Davis I can't recall seeing a listopia for anticipated books that was as dominated by series entries as this one is. Does anyone know of another list (not the closed Goodreads list that nobody can vote on, but a genuine listopia) for anticipated 2018 books? I can start a special non-series listopia, but I don't like to duplicate.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Donna, the other ones I know of are genre-related (such as "historical mystery").

I wish it came sooner


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I feel that way about The Mirror and the Light. I've never felt such kinship with G.R.R. Martin fans!


Marie -The Reading Otter There are about three books that I've seen on this that I have been fortunate enough to already read thanks to NetGalley. And I gotta say that the best of the ones that I've already read is, Children of Blood and Bone, Top notch book. It's amazing, highly recommend, just a fabulous book.

Right now there are 80 people that agree with you. Question: do you see this as primarily a YA title, or is it a novel that adults can enjoy also?

I have gotten to be greedy where Net Galley is concerned. I have a whole big pile of galleys that I am excited about. Just finished Kristen Hannah's The Great Alone, which was terrific. Currently reading Amy Bloom, Ezekiel Boone, and also Sadness is a White Bird, and all of them are amazing. Jess Kidd and Amy Poeppel are on my dessert list. If I finish one that I'm committed to reading and reviewing but have become ambivalent about, and I get the review written and off my plate, then I will let myself read these two.

Sammm ---Removed on Feb 7, 2018 10:00PM---
I felt like there's no point in accumulating a whole lot of titles that aren't qualified to be on this list for the remaining year. Will only sweep again probably in mid 2019. Left some titles that only recently replaced "2018" to "2019" without explanation and could not find info on whether the change is accurate. Most likely by the time 2018 ends, a bunch of titles would then turn out to be unfitted to be here, but until then there's nothing that could really be done about it.

P.S.: There's one situation I don't feel comfortable of removing without mentioning. Hero at the Fall (Rebel of the Sands, #3) by Alwyn Hamilton The Italian editions had always been published FIRST, as eloquently explained by the author. I have no qualms about removing edition translated into English that were actually published earlier in their original language, but I'm unsure if I should do the same when it was originally written in English but was first published in translations. Seeing that the first 2 books in the trilogy didn't seem to use the Italian publication dates (which do come first,) I'm hesitant of removing the item. If other Librarians evaluated the situation and felt necessary for it to be placed in the 2017 list, feel free to remove it! It's placement along with the removed batch below:

Hero at the Fall (Rebel of the Sands #3)
#24, score: 11,021, and 117 people voted (2017)

(Updates: I feel bad for missing Unearthed (Unearthed, #1) by Amie Kaufman ; dang the people who misleadingly put US's publication date as the original one. Editions published by Allen & Unwin were available back in late 2017. It's currently #34, score: 7,290, and 81 people voted. I suggest people relocate to the 2017 list, honestly =/)

Dude; not to be rude, but can you please be more careful with what you remove? Smoke and Iron comes out this bloody summer, I'm going to add it back, PLEASE DO NOT FALSELY REMOVE IT AGAIN, thanks.

Edited; not familiar with other removed titles so had to check, it seemed like the UK edition of Empire of Grass is still scheduled to be published in 2018, so again, do be careful when you remove titles from the list!


message 32: by Danielle (last edited May 05, 2018 04:40PM) (new)

Danielle Smoke and Iron had the paperback link so it was showing 2019

and I go by the US release dates not UK

I made a simple mistake, I'll just take my leave of the list


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Editions are supposed to have "original publication date" information on them, but a lot of them don't.

Please read the list description. There's no limitation, the only criteria is the book has to be published FIRST 2018; there's nothing wrong with being MG! Please do not request removal of MG books again (unless they aren't published first in 2018.) Thanks!

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads wrote: "I think that was a removal request, not a "I removed this" post."

Thank you so much for pointing this out! I read an extra "d" for "removed" and misread the purpose of the entire post. That's totally on me. Edited the response to something more appropriate.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I think that was a removal request, not a "I removed this" post.

However, The Burning Maze does indeed qualify for this list. Some books disallow MG or YA titles; this one does not.

Sammm Since it's almost the end of 2019, doing a sweep again and you'd be surprised people are still adding books that clearing weren't first published in 2018. Prior to removal, there's 1,297 books on the list. As I typed this sentence after I finished removing this round, there's 1,196 books left on the list.

---Removed on Dec 20, 2018 7:45PM---
A reminder of two books that technically don't qualify:

There's one situation I don't feel comfortable of removing without mentioning. Hero at the Fall (Rebel of the Sands, #3) by Alwyn Hamilton The Italian editions had always been published FIRST, as eloquently explained by the author. I have no qualms about removing edition translated into English that were actually published earlier in their original language, but I'm unsure if I should do the same when it was originally written in English but was first published in translations. Seeing that the first 2 books in the trilogy didn't seem to use the Italian publication dates (which do come first,) I'm hesitant of removing the item. If other Librarians evaluated the situation and felt necessary for it to be placed in the 2017 list, feel free to remove it! It's placement along with the removed batch below:

Hero at the Fall (Rebel of the Sands #3)
#24, score: 16,768, and 178 people voted (2017)

( Unearthed (Unearthed, #1) by Amie Kaufman ; dang the people who misleadingly put US's publication date as the original one. Editions published by Allen & Unwin were available back in late 2017. It's currently #43, score: 9,416, and 103 people voted. I suggest people relocate to the 2017 list, honestly =/)
