Stacking the Shelves (559)

The lists are calming down again as the publishing push shifts from the huge fall lists to the much smaller winter lists. It’ll go back up again sooner or later. What goes down must come up, after all.

The two books I’m MOST looking forward to are A Pirate’s Life for Tea and The Imposition of Unnecessary Obstacles. Both are the second books of series that weren’t necessarily series at the time I fell in love with their first books (Can’t Spell Treason Without Tea and The Mimicking of Known Successes), so I’m both pleased to see that they ARE series and even more pleased that I have them to read.

The book I’m anticipating not one but two ways, is Mal Goes to War by Edward Ashton. I’m looking forward to it as a thing to read, because I’ve loved the author’s previous work (Mickey7 and Antimatter Blues) but also because it is currently the furthest title out on my calendar. Mal isn’t going to war until April 9, 2024 – a long time from now but just about in time to be part of my lucky THIRTEENTH Blogo-Birthday Celebration Week!

As the comedian Groucho Marx famously said, “Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.”

  1. I have the Secret Staircase series on my TBR list. I love the looks of A Midnight Puzzle. I need to catch up so I’ll be ready for that one! Have a great week. 🙂

  2. That’s a great stack of books! You just caused me to add several books to my already groaning TBR list: A Pirate’s Life for Tea and Putting the Fact in Fantasy. I got The Tainted Cup this week, too, and I requested The Lily of Ludgate Hill, so we’ll see if I get that one.
