  1. You have most of my most anticipated releases on your list! I’m also looking forward to the U.S. release of Black Light Express (Railhead’s sequel).

    • Yes! That definitely makes sense. I’m quite grateful to get the ARCs, otherwise I would be in the same boat!!

  2. Your book reviews are amazing. I base what I read off of what you recommend! I wanted to ask you do you have the link for the short stories for Throne of Glass? Thanks

  3. Ugh, I cannot wait for Caraval! I hear nothing but the best about it! And I need to get reading The Star-Touched Queen series. But that backlist TBR, it’s something I need to conquer first.

  4. I am looking forward to many of the books on the list but my favorites that are coming out is The Dire King (Jackaby #4) by William Ritter and Murder Among The Stars (Girl About Town #2) by Adam Shankman!
