Hot Future Reads to Dream About!

"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."
-Arnold Lobel

Here are some exciting future releases on the horizon!

Shattered Souls

Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

Oldie but-still-such-a Goodie!

Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters addressed ominously to 'My dear and unfortunate successor'. Her discovery plunges her into a world she never dreamed of - a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an evil hidden in the depths of history.

In those few quiet moments, she unwittingly assumes a quest she will discover is her birthright - a hunt for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the medieval ruler whose barbarous reign formed the basis of the Dracula myth. Deciphering obscure signs and hidden texts, reading codes worked into the fabric of medieval monastic traditions, and evading terrifying adversaries, one woman comes ever closer to the secret of her own past and a confrontation with the very definition of evil.

Elizabeth Kostova's debut novel is an adventure of monumental proportions - a captivating tale that blends fact and fantasy, history and the present with an assurance that is almost unbearably suspenseful - and utterly unforgettable

Ooh, so many pretty covers. Future Imperfect and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer are two books I cannot wait for. Shattered Souls looks very interesting as well. I had never heard of it before, but it's now on my wishlist.

I'm dying to read ENCLAVE by Ann Aguirre most of all. I'm a fan of her space opera novels.
