I was actually having a look on Goodreads to see what is coming out this year and quite frankly there aren’t a whole lot of books I’m excited about, but here are the ones I am excited about (in order of expected publication).
Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare – 3 March
Hesitantly excited about this. I’ve been waiting for it for a long time, but at the same time, I haven’t really read much Cassandra Clare lately. I still have to read Queen of Air and Darkness but I can’t because I’m emotionally sound enough to go through the emotional torture that are her books. Especially when talking about my boo, Will Herondale. I know the series follows their kids more than anything, but still.
The City We Became by N. K. Jemisin – 26 March
I honestly know nothing about this book except that it takes place in NYC. But it’s N. K. Jemisin, so I will give it a go.
The Girl and the Stars by Mark Lawrence – 30 April
I am ready for more of this world. This is probably my second most anticipated release of the year. I love the Book of the Ancestor series and I still have a lot of questions that will hopefully be answered in this companion series.
The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins – 19 May
I am cautiously optimistic about this. I really, really hope its great, because The Hunger Games is to this day one of my favourite series. But I’m always a bit wary when authors come up with random series continuations 5 years later. Technically, this is a prequel. But still. Fingers crossed it’s as good as THG though.
Stormlight Archive Book 4 by Brandon Sanderson – 17 November
My most anticipated book of the year by far and the one I have to wait the longest for 😥 We don’t even have a title or a cover yet, but Brandon said he finished it on time so we’re (almost) definitely getting it this year!
