message 2: by Sammm (last edited Aug 23, 2018 09:18PM) (new)

Sammm I'm a GR librarian myself, but I don't want to remove some of these in case they were later changed to actually belong on this list, especially the ones that are scheduled to be published in late 2018; for who knows, they might just actually get delayed to be in 2019. That being said, #108 and the two #136s def. have been published already, so after posting this message for say, a week, I'll be removing those three.

#1 Untitled (A Court of Thorns and Roses #4)
publication displaying 2020

#20 Evermore (Everless #2)
US editions currently have the publication date as Dec. 31 2018

#55 Navigating the Stars
currently has the publication date as Nov. 19 2018

#108 Smoke and Iron (The Great Library #4) [removed]
THIS BOOK IS ALREADY AVAILABLE; people really need to learn to look beyond the unfortunate default edition. Literally only the US paperback (the said unfortunate default edition) is set to publish in 2019; the rest are all out there available to be purchased since July 3 2018.

#110 Harley Quinn: Mad Love
The hardcover edition currently has the publication date as Nov. 13 2018

#136 The Smiling Man (Aidan Waits Thriller #2) [removed]
UK editions have the publication date as Mar. 8 2018

#136 White Stag [removed]
A little hesitant about this one; it was first published as a free-online-read on wattpad; which is in fact completed at least in 2018 (not sure if it was finished updating before that.) St Martin's Press/Wednesday Books' edition is set to release in Jan. 8 2019; that shouldn't change the fact the first available edition is out there in 2018 though.

#181 The Frame-Up (The Golden Arrow Mysteries #1)
currently has the publication date as Dec. 1 2018

KP For the first time, I don't see Winds of Winter. Has even the GR community given up on ever getting it...?

Lea Vickery Can you add Good Night by L.R.W. Lee? It comes out next year. On the 14th of January

If you want this title on the list, and if you are not the author, you can add it yourself. Go to the top of the list, and there's a tab on the right hand side above it.

Pro tip: If it's been published in another country but is new to the place you live, it isn't newly published. This can be frustrating, and of course anyone that wants a list for books newly published in the UK, or new in Australia, or in the US, or wherever, can start one, but this list isn't that. We have to work with the title and the subtext specified by the listmaker.

Thank you, Donna, for pointing that out. :-) And thank you for helping scrub the list!


message 12: by Rosa (new)

Rosa I can’t wait for Anthem, the final book of the Sixties Trilogy by Deborah Wiles. It’s supposed to come out in Fall 2019, but there’s no record here yet.
Also, Time of the Dapper Men was supposed to have come out this summer, but it didn’t. It would be wonderful if it came out next year.

Frank Leigh Bardugo said that Six of Crows #3 is many years down the line, not next year.
