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.
So far this year has been going ok although not stellar in the reading department. Heavy classics for English 12 plus all the other school reading has definitely been slowing down my personal reading time but I feel like I'm basically keeping up with it. This quarter isn't too heavy on new releases which is good because it's super crazy with family stuff which is definitely going to be cutting into my reading time.
First up is Waylaid by Kim Harrison. This is a kindle only book but is the first crossover between Ms. Harrison's wildly popular Hollows series heroine, Rachel Morgan, and her new Drafter, Peri Reed. It looks promising.
Release date: April 4
The very next day sees two new books out. Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire which looks to be a stand alone where children slip through shadows into magical lands that only sometimes spit them out again. Nancy was one but now she has found her way back and the darkness is not far behind.
Release date: April 5
So a new one from Seanan McGuire and then the newest installment in the Jane Yellowrock series, Shadow Rites by Faith Hunter. Jane is working hard to keep the precarious peace between the city's vampires and witches but then her house is magically attacked and finding the culprits leads to something that could tip everything over.
Release date: April 5
Then there is a nice long break before Earthbound by Yasmine Galenorn comes out. This is a novella in her Otherworld series that tells of when the sisters first came Earthside. No pre-order link currently up but this came from her blog.
Release date: May 24
The next one is also by Yasmine Galenorn and is the start of a new self-published series that she plans to put out in ebook and limited trade paperback called Fury Rising. It follows Kaeleen Donovon who is a bounty hunter for the Furies and oath bound to help balance things when called for.
Release date: June 14
The quarter ends with Rise by Mira Grant, a collection of all 8 previously published short stories and novellas in the Newsflesh universe along with 2 never before published works. Seriously?! I can't wait!
Release date: June 21
So during a very chaotic time in the school year there won't be too many new books coming out to tempt me away from what I should be doing which means maybe I can make some headway in the to-read pile before it grows again.
