The Conqueror's Saga has been one of my favorite series over the last couple of years. I'm eager to read the final installment in this gender-swapped retelling of Vlad the Impaler. (Series featured here and here.)
Contagion by Erin Bowman:
I really enjoyed Erin Bowman's westerns. I'm excited to see what she does in space. Also, I feel like I'm drawn to books about plagues. Is that weird?
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik:
Uprooted is an absolutely gorgeous original fairy tale. I loved it, and now I'm up for any fairy tale setting from Naomi Novik.
Seafire by Natalie C. Parker:
Have you noticed all the pirate books that are coming out in the next few months? That's a theme I'm willing to jump on.
In Another Time by Caroline Leech:
I loved Caroline Leech's debut, Wait for Me, and you know that there has to be a World War II book on my anticipated list.
Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake:
I need to know what Katharine, Arsinoe, and Mirabella are going to do next in this dark fantastic series. (Series featured here and here.)
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White:
I love the original Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. I love Kiersten White. I love retellings. There's no way I'm missing this one.
The War Outside by Monica Hesse:
I fell so hard for Monica Hesse's The Girl in the Blue Coat. It made my favorite's list in 2016, and there is no way I would miss another WWII story written by her capable hands.
The Delphi Revolution by Rysa Walker:
Rysa Walker's Chronos Files is one of my favorite series ever. I'm really enjoying her conspiracy-filled second series too. (Series featured here and here.)
An Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason by Virgina Boecker:
Shakespeare, Tudor England, girls disguised as boys, spies. This book sounds like a whole lot of fun.
The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzie Lee:
Remember the aforementioned pirate theme? Of course this book must be on the list as well.
The Light Between Worlds by Laura E Weymouth:
This book is a story about children who slipped into another world and found the return to our world jarring. It gives me Wayward Children vibes.
Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor:
Strange the Dreamer was one of my favorite books of 2017. It's pure magic. I adore everything about Laini Taylor's writing. (Series featured here.)
Archenemies by Marissa Meyer:
Marissa Meyer writes such fun books. This superhero series is full of fascinating powers, secret identities, and spying. (Series featured here.)
