Looking Ahead: January 2016

Yes, I'm bringing this feature back. As part of my goal to stay on top of this blog this year.

Here are some releases I'm looking forward too, that you can probably expect reviews for at some point in January:

Released January 5th:

Passenger Book 1: Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
Category: YA
Genre: Goodreads says fantasy

New Alexandra Bracken series. I have no idea what it's about and I don't care, because it's Alexandra Bracken.

Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley
Category: YA
Genre: Historical Fantasy, Classic Book Referencing

Historical fantasy starring the Bronte sisters? Yes, please.

Witchlands Book 1: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard
Category: YA
Genre: Fantasy

First, I'm thrilled that Dennard has a new series out. Second, it's epic fantasy.

Curio Book 1: Curio by Evangeline Denmark
Category: YA
Genre: Fantasy

Looks very steampunkish and I'm all about steampunk so I'm in.

Library Jumpers Book 1: Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake
Category: YA
Genre: Fantasy

This book had me at promising fantasy adventure involving libraries.

Imposter Queen Book 1 by Sarah Fine
Category: YA
Genre: Fantasy

After enjoying a couple of this author's books, I'm pretty much down for anything she writes.

Mr. Splitfoot by Samantha Hunt
Category: Adult
Genre: Fantasy

An adult fantasy novel that looks very interesting. I've heard lots of buzz about it.

Released January 19th:

Sword and Verse Book 1 by Kathy MacMillan
Category: YA
Genre: Fantasy

If there's one book from January that's been getting the hype, it's this one. I'm definitely intrigued by the premise at least.

Released January 26th:

The Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin
Category: Adult
Genre: Historical Fiction

Another historical fiction from Melanie Benjamin. I've had good luck with her stuff before so I'm going to give this one a look.

Divine Cities Book 1: City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett
Category: Adult
Genre: Fantasy

Yes, finally a sequel to the wonderful and really underrated City of Stairs.

The Zodiac Legacy Book 2: The Dragon's Return by Stan Lee, Stuart Moore, and Andie Tong
Category: Middle-Grade
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Adventure

Convergence was underrated. I for one fully support Marvel's bid to take over everything.

Some bookish things happening outside book releases:
BBCs Sherlock Christmas Special is airing Something to tide us over until they make us wait another three years I guess.
For a modern Sherlock that doesn't make you wait forever, Elementary's 4rth season comes back on the 7th.
In graphic novel TV related news: Supergirl returns January 4rth
iZombie returns on January 12th
Agent Carter season 2 returns on January 19th
The Flash season 2 returns on January 19th
Arrow season 4 returns on January 20th
Legends of Tomorrow debuts on January 21rst
Such a good time to be a comic book geek right now.
