& Fridays: On the Horizon

Does anybody else put book release dates on their schedules, paper or electronic or otherwise? No?  Just me?

Morning Star by Pierce Brown. Science Fiction/Fantasy. Publisher: Del Rey February 2016

Morning Star by Pierce Brown. Science Fiction/Fantasy. Publisher: Del Rey February 2016

I have had Morning Star in my little calendar for as long as it has reached until 2016. The third installment of the Red Rising trilogy, I am sure you have heard me gush about it a number of times. I met the author, Pierce Brown, at a signing at my local bookstore. I devoured the second book, Golden Son in days, and since it ended on a cliffhanger (so, so mean, Brown…) I have been buzzing with anticipation waiting for it.

AND IT’S ALMOST HERE! It comes out on February 9th, y’all!! THAT’S SO SOON! LIKE, 4 DAYS SOON!!!!!!

You can bet I will be staying up late just reading one more chapter. And I will be heading to another reading/signing by Brown at the same bookstore on the 10th. THIS WEEK IS SO EXCITING JUST BECAUSE OF THIS BOOK!

Also, go read that series. Right now. I’ll wait…

Another terrific book I read back in 2014, City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett (review here), is getting a sequel this month. City of Blades, out January 26th, sounds like it features everybody’s favorite butt-kicking Hagrid, Sigrud, in even more detail. Yay! I will definitely have to quick-read City of Stairs though – it’s a complex world I will be re-immersing myself into!

And I just looked up the sequel to my favorite book I read last year – Illuminae – and the sequel is slated for this year! YAY! Of course, the first one was out in October, so the next one is likely to be out around then too, so I have a bit of a wait….

But it’s okay, I can be patient…..

Sometimes.

What about you, dear readers? What books are you excited about? Any sequels coming out soon that you will hunker down and devour within days?
