This week's sizzling hot topic:
Picks for Fall 2015.
I say this every time it is time to do a post for my picks for the upcoming season. I sit here and wonder where the previous season went, and in this case, I am hating that it is almost time to say goodbye to summer as we roll into Fall.
However, with each and every new season, there are always some must have books to read. I have selected a few books that I am most eager to read.
So let's get to it, shall we?
Young Adult Picks for Fall 2015: (click on covers for details).
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: I am interested to see what Ms. Bardugo is bringing us this time. I was a fan of her Grisha Trilogy, and this new series promises six interesting characters with unique and magical abilities. I am interested to meet this bunch of six. Look for this one on September 29th.
Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman: I must say, this is the book I am most eagerly anticipating this Fall. So far, early buzz is strong. I am a big fan of both authors. Mr. Kristoff wrote the Lotus War Trilogy, one of my all time favorites, while Ms. Kaufman coauthors the Starbound Trilogy, which I love. I cannot wait to see what this dynamic duo has in store with this book. It has a futuristic planet that is invaded and then hit with a plague. I am sure it will be fascinating. This one hits shelves on October 20th.
Dark Heart of Magic (Black Blade #2) by Jennifer Estep: This past spring, Estep introduced us to a new world and characters in Cold Burn of Magic. In this series we find a world populated and run by magical, mafia type families. You can expect monsters, magic and danger in this one. I am looking forward to continuing the adventure in book two. Look for this one on October 27th.
Winter(Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer: If you have not yet experienced the amazing Lunar Chronicles series, it is time for some binge reading. Ms. Meyer has spun some terrific retellings in this series, which is set in a futuristic time and in space. So far we have seen her revision of classics like Cinderella, Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel. This fourth and final installment is the rebirth of Snow White. I cannot wait for this book! This one will finally arrive on November 10th.
Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meghan Spooner: This final pick rounds out my YA choices for Fall. So far, I have enjoyed both the previous books in the Starbound Trilogy . They are set in space, and they are companion novels. This series is imaginative and unique. Definitely give it a try.
Now let's take a peek at my Adult picks:
Fated (Servants of Fate #3) by Sarah Fine: I am a big fan of Ms. Fine. This third and final book in the series, promises to be the best of all. The Servants of Fate Series is a retake on the Charon (Ferrymen of the Dead) myth as well as the Mythological Fates. It is futuristic/ dystopian/ mythological series with some hot romance. If you haven't checked to this series, more binge reading is in store for you. Watch for this one on September 29th.
White Trash Zombie Goes Wild( White Trash Zombie #5) by Diana Rowland: The White Trash Zombie series continues to make me laugh. It is unlike other zombie books in that the zombies function like normal humans, for the most part, but the must feast on brains. This series is all kinds of fun, and it never fails to make me laugh. Definitely check it out. Prepare for zombies and brains on October 6th.
White Hot (Hidden Legacy #2) by Ilona Andrews: This past year, I have become a big fan of Ilona Andrews, a husband and wife team who write the amazing Kate Daniels Series. Seriously, if you haven't checked out their terrific UF series, you must do it. I spent this past year binge reading it, and loved it. Burn For Me was my first read by this couple, and I thought it was fantastic. It is a UF series with terrific characters and excellent world building. Don't let the cheesy cover fool you. This is a kick butt, action packed series. Get this on October 27th. (At least I hope, I am seeing some conflicting information on the release date).
The Bazaar Of Bad Dreams: Stories by Stephen King: Rounding out my picks, is another entry from one of my all time favs: Mr. Stephen King. King is bringing us another one of his short story collections, the first since Full Dark, No Stars in 2010. I always love King's shorts, they are such an eclectic and interesting bunch. This one hits shelves on November 3rd.
Whew! There you have my picks for the Fall Season. I am always eager to hear what you all are looking forward to most, so tell me in the comments. I could always use some good reading suggestions.
