You know what’s starting to appear here and there around the book portion of the blogosphere? Exciting titles coming out in 2014. (Like we’re caught up for 2013, right?)
For example, here’s Chachic’s list. And here’s Maureen’s list. I expect I would probably like all the titles on either list, so that does give me a lot of titles to keep track of. Especially since these two lists intersect only on the third RAVEN BOYS title from Maggie Stiefvater.
Well, and they also intersect on BLACK DOG. There’s a reason I’m particularly sure I share both Chachic’s and Maureen’s taste in books, eh?
I’m personally really longing for MAGIC BREAKS by Ilona Andrews — you know, there is a problem with titles that are all so similar; I will never, ever be able to keep this series straight without looking at the dates of publication. Anyway, LOST LAKE by Sarah Addison Allen. THE CHOCOLATE TEMPTATION by Laura Florand. I’m there on the RAVEN BOYS series, but honestly I think for me it can wait till the series is all the way complete. It’s not like I don’t have anything else to read in the meantime. All those are from Chachic’s list.
Then, Maureen mentions that Elizabeth Wein may have another book coming out — SWORD DANCER. I’m all over that, even knowing nothing at all about the title. Plus, Maureen reminds me of something I knew perfectly well, which is that Merrie Haskell’s CASTLE BEHIND THORNS is also due out soon. I’m longing to read that, not only because I loved it the first time I read it, but because I’m really interested to see how the final version differs from the version I read.
Okay, a few other titles are on my personal list, even though I hardly know what all might be due out in 2014. But one I do know about:
CJ Cherryh’s next Foreigner novel is supposed to be out next year: PEACEMAKER. I’m sure I’ll read that as soon as it’s available. Well, almost sure. If I’m deep in a project of my own, maybe it’ll have to wait. But still.
Also, STELES OF THE SKY is coming out — the third Eternal Sky book by Elizabeth Bear. I loved the first book and really look forward to reading the second and third. I’ll have to read the first again by then, I expect, but that’s hardly a problem.
Naturally I’ll also be doing my best just to get through some of the fantastic books published this year, or earlier, that have been sitting for months and years on my TBR pile. Chief among those will be ROSE UNDER FIRE and CODE NAME VERITY by Elizabeth Wein. After that, seriously, I have no idea.
So many books already on my TBR pile. So many can’t-resist-it titles coming along to add. Anything anyone else is especially looking forward to?
