My usual disclaimer:
Let me state, this is really based on authors or series that I'm already reading since those are the things I follow. I'm not paid to write this blog nor do I have any affiliations with any publishers so I don't receive free books or advance notice of things except what I glean off Facebook from people who do have those contacts or what I research on my own (which again, leads back to authors that I'm already reading). Maybe someday I'll be one of those who has the contacts and gets ARCs but it's not today.
I am so far behind my reading from the last two quarters that I'm going quite crazy looking at all these beautiful books on my bookshelf but right now I'm frantically reading new authors as I managed to get behind on that and I'm soooo close to making my goal for the year in new authors that I want to get that done first. Maybe with the kids being on break, I can manage to not only do that but start getting caught up on my other reading as well. Hey, a girl can hope!
Tales from the Nightside by Simon Green kicks off the new releases for 2015. It's been a while since we got to delve into the world of John Taylor and his "friends". This is a collection of 10 short stories where we get to find out some of the backstories of the characters that he has worked with and with any luck, we'll get some John and Shotgun Suzy as well.
Release date: Jan 6
At the end of the month, we have the next installment in the Sisters of the Otherworld series told from Delilah's point of view, Panther Prowling by Yasmine Galenorn. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the main storyline with Shadow Wing is getting moved ahead in this story either and that kind of bums me out. I love the sisters but it seems like the main story has taken a backseat for the most part and it's being stretched out. I will, of course, be reading this one because I can't not read it but I hope that things will get back on track with the main plot soon.
Release date: Jan 27
With no releases in February that I'm tracking, I get two new books to choose from at the beginning of March. Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs gets back to seeing how things are going with Anna & Charles. They are taking a trip to Phoenix for personal reasons but nothing is ever so simple and while they are there, they find that the Fae are stealing human children and replacing them. Looks like a war with the Fae may be starting up and they are in the line of fire.
Relesae date: Mar 3
Pocket Apocalypse by Seanan McGuire is the other one coming out at the beginning of March and we get to hear more from Alex Price and his girlfriend, Shelby. Apparently things are not going well back in Australia according to Shelby's family so the two of them head to the Land Down Under to deal with some werewolves. I have a feeling this will prove to be an 'interesting' trip.
Release date: Mar 3
To finish off the first quarter, we get the first in a new series with Prudence by Gail Carriger. Alexia's daughter is leading off this series and I can't wait to be back in that world and in India to boot! I'm sure that any daughter of Alexia and Sir Maccon will be a serious handful and delightful to adventure with.
Release date: Mar 17
So definitely a small number of books in the first quarter but there are enough books on my shelves that I won't be lacking for anything to read.
