BookBlogExpo is being hosted at Girl Who Reads.
“Tell us all about the books you are most looking forward to this year (share even if your most anticipated book of the year has already come out).”
I am rubbish at knowing when books are going to come out.Â I’m always amazed that people who say things like, “I’m starting a list of my most anticipated books of 2020.”Â I don’t know what is coming out next week.Â I like it that way.Â Surprises are fun.Â (I don’t look up what the weather is going to be ahead of time either for the same reason.)
But sometimes even I hear of books ahead of time.Â Here are few that I have pre-ordered.
Always Look on the Bright Side of Life: A Sortabiography by Eric Idle
I’ve preordered this on Audible because I need to listen to him tell these stories. Eric Idle is my all time favorite. Coming out October 2.
Time’s Convert by Deborah Harkness
I reread Deborah Harkness’ All Souls Trilogy at least once a year. I’ve been following the television show production on social media. This is a new book coming out about a secondary character in the original trilogy. So excited. Coming out September 25.
Trail of Lightning by Rebecca Roanhorse
I loved her prize-winning short story, WELCOME TO YOUR AUTHENTIC INDIAN EXPERIENCE, so I ordered this book.
“While most of the world has drowned beneath the sudden rising waters of a climate apocalypse, DinÃ©tah (formerly the Navajo reservation) has been reborn. The gods and heroes of legend walk the land, but so do monsters.
Maggie Hoskie is a DinÃ©tah monster hunter, a supernaturally gifted killer. When a small town needs help finding a missing girl, Maggie is their lastâ€”and bestâ€”hope. But what Maggie uncovers about the monster is much larger and more terrifying than anything she could imagine.
Maggie reluctantly enlists the aid of Kai Arviso, an unconventional medicine man, and together they travel to the rez to unravel clues from ancient legends, trade favors with tricksters, and battle dark witchcraft in a patchwork world of deteriorating technology.
As Maggie discovers the truth behind the disappearances, she will have to confront her pastâ€”if she wants to survive.
Welcome to the Sixth World.”
Comes out June 26.
A Duke in Disguise by Cat Sebastian
I got nothing on this one except it comes to my iPad in November. I love Cat Sebastian’s Regency romances featuring queer characters. I don’t know what this is about but she’s an autobuy now.
Unless everybody’s talking about it or I happen across it at Netgalley I don’t usually have a clue either – even for some of my favorite authors. I too can’t wait for Time’s Convert. (I also hope a US network will pick up the tv show soon).
I hope you are able to snag these books soon after they come out!! 🙂
Erica | Erica Robyn Reads
Oh! I didn’t know about the Eric Idle book. I’m heading over to Amazon to pre-order that, too. Thanks! A sortoabiography. 😀 And I have Cat Sebastian on my TBR shelf. I might have to pick that one up for one of my summer reads. You might like Ava March’s books. That’s how I found out about Cat Sebastian. It popped up as recommended reading on Amazon because I buy her books. I love Ava’s books! They’re erotic romance full of passionate, heart-rending emotion also set during the Regency era.
I love You Might Also Like recommendations. I fell down a rabbit hole of Indian foodie novels once based on Goodreads’ recommendations after I read one.
