Upcoming Books I Can't Wait To Read


These are only a few that I can't wait to read . . .


I would think I'm like more readers and have an enormous stack of books to read. In fact, most people that I talk to at craft shows have a stack. Usually, this is the reason they can't buy my book. But, like my good buddy indie author E.H. Drake says . . . books don't expire. So add another to your stack! That's what I do. I'll read it. Eventually. My only dilemma is finding the room. But that is more of an issue with not getting rid of books, not having too many to read.


I'm a genre neutral reader. I'll read just about everything from fantasy to young adult to steamy romance. What do you like to read? Here's a few that I'm looking forward to reading. Some are on my shelf, and some are not yet there, but will be.


The Crowns of Nyaxia Series by Carissa Broadbent

The Serpent & the Wings of Night, The Ashes & the Star-Cursed King, and The Songbird & the Heart of Stone (releases in November 2024)

This is a dark, 'romantsy' series with vampires, war, mystery and magic. I have the first two books, but the third won't release until November and I've been on the fence about starting it until the third one comes out. I'm not sure how many more will be in this series. If you've been following my blog's and social media, you might have heard me shout from the rooftop about how frustrated I'd been after finishing Rebecca Yarro's Fourth Wing and Iron Flame, only to find out the next one isn't even written yet. It won't release until January 2025, but I at least have it pre-ordered through Barnes & Noble. Still, to have to wait that long!! Is that what everyone goes through waiting for me to release a book? If so, I am so sorry.


Born of Blood and Ash (Flesh and Fire Series #4) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book number 4 in her Flesh and Fire Series, another romantsy with love and obsession, gods and fates and prophecies. This won't release until August so I have some time to read other things, but I can't wait to resume this series. If I didn't have such a large stack to be read, I'd re-read the series. This series has been jam-packed with action, steamy love and twists that you never see coming. If you like romantsy (romance and fantasy) and you don't mind reading really, I mean really, steamy and explicit scenes, I would recommend her Flesh and Fire series and From Blood and Ash series. She is a wonderful writer of this genre, by far.


Fool's Gold by Brenda Lyne

Book number 3 in the Regan O'Rourke series, this is Indie-author Brenda Lyne's fifth novel release of paranormal suspense. This series is based in Minnesota, as is Sister Lost. Her books don't disappoint, I can assure you. It's available on Amazon for pre-order or you can go to her website www.brendalyne.com and find her at an event. There may be one or two that we'll be at together, as that sometimes happens. The release is in September, and it will be available on her website. Check it out! I know I can't wait to read it!


The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern

This has been on my bookshelf for a while now, and I haven't quite gotten to it. If this book is anything like The Night Circus, I've been missing out! A very colorful writer, these are the stories that stick with you. It's hard to describe, you've just got to read for yourself.


That's all I have for now. There are a ton more books on my shelf to be read, and growing, but I have limited time if I want to get any writing done. And right now, I'm focused on getting my fourth book done and the next gangster book pre-writing done. Before I go to sleep and while camping are about the only times I have to read.


Happy reading!
