books I cannot wait for, epic fantasy, fantasy, lists, paranormal romance, readerly, upcoming releases, ya, young adult
I look forward to this year’s book releases with rapt anticipation. It promises to be full of assassins, romance, adventure, magic, and awesomeness!
Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass, #3) by Sarah J. Maas
The previous book in this series…if I start talking about it, we’ll end up with a massive, tear-infused rant and we can’t have that. But I have to read this one. I have to. (Chaolaena forever!)
Ferran’s Map (The Cat’s Eye Chronicles, #4) By T.L. Shreffler
I want this book so freaking bad it’s not even funny. I LOVE the series with a fanatic passion and NEED the thing. (On a side note: I have shipped Sora/Crash since they met and that will never change.)
Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms, #3) by Morgan Rhodes
I’ve read the first book in this series and mean to order the second one. I have high hopes for the further installments of this series and look forward to getting my hands on Falling Kingdoms’ sequels.
Windswept (Moonlit, #2) by Jadie Jones
Holy crap, talk about emotional involvement in this book’s predecessor. Moonlit had ageless love, horses, a prize villain, and just…pure awesome.
Final Advent (No Angels, #3) by Eli Hinze
This is the final book in the trilogy and it promises to be epic!
World of the Beasts (The Witches’ Sleep, #2) by Kaitlyn Deann
This book was actually on last year’s list of releases I couldn’t wait for. The first was great, but the author has put off the second’s release. Again. *shoots accusatory glare in general direction of Miss Deann*
Sunbolt 2 (The Sunbolt Chronicles, #2) by Intisar Khanani
I did some beta reading for this one and I can tell it is going to be one firestorm of a piece! You will certainly be getting a lot of fangirling come the release. (Title currently undecided.)
Fire Soul (Tortured Elements, #2) by Olivia Rivers
Frost Fire ended in a bloody cliffhanger. But I loved Drake to bits and I want, want, want to know what happens to the poor baby.
Born of the Blood (The Night Gives Up Its Secrets, #3) by Mary Eason
Another book that was also on last year’s list. Hopefully the release won’t get postponed again, because I really want it!
Broken (Shadowlight Saga, #2) by Mande Matthews
This series is incredible—Norse mythology retellings infused with warrior girls, magic, dark lords, honor, precious characters…HAND IT OVER!!!
Hopefully I’ll find that each of these will exceed their predecessors in incredibleness. (Though that might be asking a bit too much.) I am very excited to read each of them and there better not be any more postponed releases!

Great choices! I can’t wait for most of these myself, and now I’m looking forward to checking out some of the others I haven’t yet tried! Woohoo – I love new books! Thanks for sharing!
And I love spreading the word on my literary darlings! Win-win. 😉
More to add to my (quickly growing) to-read list! 😀
The expansion NEVER ENDS.
Man, I need to start most of these series!
Yes. YES YOU DO!!!

It’s such an honor to see Sunbolt 2 on this list (gah! I need a title to badly!). There are definitely a couple series here I haven’t seen before, but I’ll admit I’m not so sure about Frost Fire’s sequel. Wasn’t that the story with the girl who grew up with demons but still shrieked Every Time Something Happened? Drake was cool, but the heroine kinda got on my nerves… unless I’m misremembering. I probably am.
Yes! Out with a title, woman! 😉
And no, you’re remembering correctly. That is the series with the Girl Who Shrieks At Everything. I can’t really explain why, I just covet the sequel anyway. The heart wants what the heart wants!
