I did the same post last year, here and it’s interesting to look back and see how many of those I actually read. I listed 8 books and only 4 of them were actually published. I read 2, lost a bit of interest in 1 and have another one waiting to go. That’s not too bad.
So here is my new list of exciting books getting published next year:
Spinning Silver / Naomi Novik –> July 2018. I was so excited when I saw this last week! Sounds amazing and if it’s anything like ‘Uprooted’, I will love it! Hope it’s a stand-alone again.
The Plastic Magician / Charlie N. Holmberg –> May 2018. A sequel to the Paper Magician trilogy which I liked a lot. I wonder whether some of the known characters appear. I hope so!
Covenant. The War of the Gods 3 / Jennifer Fallon –> March 2018. This might be the end of the series and I am so excited, because the first 2 books were amazing and I loved the ending of book 2, although it was a big tease 😉
The Sun’s Domain. The Hollow Gods 3 / Rebecca Levene –> March 2018. Hopefully. It was supposed to be published in 2017 but it was pushed back. Hope it comes out soon or I will have to reread the previous 2 books.
Skyward / Brandon Sanderson –> November 2018. I don’t really care what it is about, I’d read it anyways! It’s a Science-Fiction YA novel about a teenage girl who wants to fly her own spaceship. Not my cup of tea normally, but it’s Sanderson, so I will give it a try. And I think it is also supposed to take place in a flight school, so that’s cool!
The Outsider / Stephen King –> June 2018. Yay, a mystery crime by Stephen King! Sounds great, it’s climbing up my King list.
Kin. Helga Finnsdottir 1 / Snorri Kristjansson –> March 2018. It’s described as Viking crime and that’s something I would love to try 😀 I like books set in Scandinavia anyways.
Bloody Rose. The Band 2 / Nicholas Eames –> July 2018. If that’s the right date. I didn’t want to continue but I saw that this new book will be written from the perspective of a female bard – I like that!
Aaand who of those 3 will win the snail race?
The Winds of Winter / George R. R. Martin –> nope.
The Thorn of Emberlain / Scott Lynch –> September 2018. I can see a winner here!
The Doors of Stone / Pat Rothfuss –> haha, nope.
