His name is Clay.
He's building a bridge.
And he wants that bridge to be something truly great and miraculous.
In case you don't know, The Book Thief is one of my favorite books ever. It's one of the few stories that made me cry on the outside. I've re-read it so many times that I lost count and it never fails to touch me. This book was supposed to be out in 2011, but was postponed and no one knows when it will be published.
A new YA fantasy in which elemental powers are reawakened after a genocide, and a girl realizes she has the power to control the earth on the same day she marries the king who hunted the Elementae to extinction.
Publication somewhere in 2017. I loved Scarlet, Lady Thief and Lion Heart. This was such a strong series about a Robin Hood retelling and I can't wait to read more from this author. The romance from Terra also sounds like a potential love-to-hate relationship, which I love.
Twilight of the Gods. WIP.
Crescent city. WIP.
Novella about Chaol.
That is a lot of new books to look forward to! And of course we got the news that there will be more books published in ACOTAR. Exciting stuff is happening.
Publication was pushed back to March 7th 2017. I'm not a fan of the new covers, but I am a fan of the story inside The Bone Season and The Mime Order, so I need this in my hands!
As far as I know there is no exact publication date, but I believe it will be published somewhere in 2017. My love for her books Cinder, Scarlet (my favorite), Cress, Winter, Fairest and Stars Above is big. We also have Heartless to look forward to, publication in November this year, and Wires and Nerves January 2017.
Londons fall and kingdoms rise while darkness sweeps the Maresh Empire—and the fraught balance of magic blossoms into dangerous territory while heroes and foes struggle alike. The direct sequel to A Gathering of Shadows, and the final book in the Shades of Magic epic fantasy series, A Conjuring of Light sees Schwab reach a thrilling culmination concerning the fate of beloved protagonists—and old enemies. Publication 2017.
Vengeful has no information.
My love for her books can't be expressed in words and I am so excited this is going to be a thing. I don't know how long we have to wait, but it will be worth it. It all started with The Near Witch, then The Archived - The Unbound and Vicious. But, A Darker Shade of Magic and A gathering of shadows are beyond perfection and this is one of my all time favorite series. I can't wait to find out how it is all going to end.
Publication March 14th 2017. PLEASE LET THIS BE GOOD. Beauty and the beast retellings are my life. I have never read anything by this author before, but this blurb almost sounds too good to be true. The fact that the trend of (fairytale) retellings is still going strong in 2017 makes me extremely happy.
Untitled as of yet, but going by the code name 'darknovel' on Stiefvater's blog, will be her next YA novel, a paranormal standalone, about "creepy Colorado magic" and "dust" and is loosely based on a story she wrote in 2008 as a riff on a fear that dogged her in her early teen years.
You can follow anything Stiefvater wants to share about it on her Tumblr blog in the #darknovel tag. She started writing it four months after finishing The Raven Kingand it is supposed to be the next novel she publishes. According to a tweet from 03/25 she is in the process of finishing it up now.
Untitled as of yet, but going by the code name 'girlnovel' on Stiefvater's blog, will be her first adult novel, paranormal, standalone, and will involve "a pack of girl street-racers" and "bad decisions". The narrator of the novel will be named Hennessy. You can follow anything Stiefvater wants to share about it on her blog in the #girlnovel tag.
I loved everything about The Raven Cycle (with The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves, Blue Lily Lily Blue and The Raven King) and count is also one of my all time favorite series, so I'm highly anticipating everything Stiefvater will write in the future. I have yet to read The Scorpion Races and her Shiver series, so at least I have some things to look forward to.
August 2017. Another author that makes me want to read anything she writes. I loved Shadow and Bones + Siege and storm and I am the biggest fan of Six of Crows, so I have high hopes for Wonder Woman.
Strange the Dreamer is the story of:
the aftermath of a war between gods and men
a mysterious city stripped of its name
a mythic hero with blood on his hands
a young librarian with a singular dream
a girl every bit as perilous as she is imperiled
alchemy and blood candy, nightmares and godspawn, moths and monsters, friendship and treachery, love and carnage.
Welcome to Weep.
March 28th 2017. I fell in love with her stunning writing in her Daughter of Smoke and Bone series (with Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Days of Blood and Starlight and Dreams of Gods and Monsters). It has been too long. I can't wait.
2018. You have NO IDEA how happy this makes me. I may have cried some happy tears. If you ask me for my favorite series, I think I will name this one after Harry Potter. It is glorious and the fact that the sequel is about my two favorite characters in the series, makes me even happier.
So, what books are you waiting for?
