Well, this is a subject dear to my book-loving heart as we near the end of 2019.  My eyes have been feasting on what is in store and my patience is limited so I’ll be glad to welcome these lovelies to my shelves just as soon as I’m able.

I’ll try to list them in release order, but some don’t have a release date yet or I’ve only got a rumor of their release so I’ll leave them unmarked.  And, I kept it to the first half of the year.

  1.  Defying the Relic Hunter by Gail Koger, SFR, Coletti Warlords series
  2. Of Flames and Fury by Cecy Robson, UF, Weird Girls series February
  3. The Sinner by JR Ward, PNR, Black Dagger Brotherhood series March
  4. Smokebitten by Patricia Briggs, UF, Mercy Thompson series March
  5. Who Speaks For the Damned by CS Harris, H-RS, Sebastian St. Cyr series, April
  6. Network Effect by Martha Wells, SF, Murderbot Series, May
  7. Riviera Gold by Laurie R King, H- RS Mary Russell series June
  8. Queens Gambit by Karen Chance, UF Dory Basarab series
  9. Spark Transform by Carol Von Natta, SFR Central Galactic Concordance series
  10. The Last Train to Key West by Chanel Cleeton, HF, June

What new release are you most anticipating for next year?  Is there a series that you hope gets a new next installment finally?  Do Tell!

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

I am absolutely looking forward to continuing the Chanel Cleeton series. I never really read historicals, but the way Cleeton combined the history and the romance really worked for me. The family is so fascinating too

I do love lots of historical fiction, but I’m with you on how great she writes, Sam. 🙂

Martha Wells is an author I’ve been wanting to try. Maybe 2020 will finally find me with one of hers 🙂

It is fun to look ahead ans see all the shiny new stories. My list also has the Mercy Thompson and Murderbot books and I will be trying to take in some of the others as well.

Thanks so much for sharing and joining us this week!

I agree, Anne! I feel like the adult marking up my version of a Toys R Us catalog. 🙂

Nice list! I can’t wait for K.A.Tucker’s sequel to The Simple Wild. It’s called Wild at Heart. Also, the next installment from The Cross Breed series by Dannika Dark.

I am looking forward to My Dark Vanessa. I hadn’t heard about it until I saw someone review it, and now I’m dying to read it.

I am also excited for the Chanel Cleeton, though I’m more cautiously optimistic. I still haven’t finished the last one, as the plot was boring for me.

Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Had to look it up. I can see why that one leaped onto your most anticipated list. If it’s a slow go for you, I can see why the next book with be a caution one for you.

Briggs is on my list too. Also several Ilona Andrews, Kelley Armstrong and Jennifer Estep too.

Oh yes, the two Ilona Andrews and the new Rockton one are definitely ones I want badly, too. 🙂

Same here! It’s been moved back to a March release date now, but still one of my top ones. 🙂
