Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with friends and family. I spent the break writing, editing, reading ... and getting amazing book-nerd gifts like these:
|The best Firefly book ever.|
It has cast photos, interviews, episode scripts. Shiny!
|Guess what I'll be reading next???|
Are you excited for all that 2015 will bring?I know I am. I finished edits on my space opera, which means I can finally start my YA steampunk. This'll be an enjoyable one to tackle - it'll push me into new areas for sure - and it's one of two (maybe three) books I have slated for this year. Stay tuned for some fun blog surprises over the next few weeks and months, too!
On the reading side, my full TBR list is perpetually overwhelming (in the best way!), but here's what's up next for me:
- Finish Jim Butcher's Codex Alera
- Catch up on all my Rick Riordan
- Start Brandon Sanderson's Words of Radiance
- Finally get to Lies of Locke Lamora (I've only been promising a friend I would for about a year)
And, in case that's not enough, here are the titles releasing in early 2015 that have me most excited!
FireFight - Jan. 6
Brandon Sanderson's second "Reckoners" book hits shelves this week. I enjoyed the first one, and felt the series could really build into something outstanding. I'm eager to see where Sanderson takes it.
Woven - Jan. 27
I'm so excited for David and Michael to finally see their book out in the world! And I'm excited for everyone who gets to read it. Can't wait to see what they have in store.
Red Queen - Feb. 10
This one has been hyped beyond belief, but I'm hopeful all the praise is well-earned. The premise of social classes determined by blood sounds intriguing, and I love the power of the cover!
Cinder Spires, Book #1 - May 7
Jim Butcher's new steampunk series. Yes, you read that right. Butcher is now writing steampunk! And the first book is tentatively set to release on my birthday - even better.
Lion Heart - May 19
Words cannot cleanly express how much I am waiting for the next installment of A.C. Gaughen's take on the Robin Hood legend. I would gladly bribe the publishing world if I thought I could get my hands on an early copy.
