I actually meant to do this sooner and I had LOADS of books on my list, but actually the majority are out now. I also realised that a bunch of them come out in January. So this is a bit of a short list, but I believe it has some beauties on it.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of A Game of Thrones, this beautiful illustrated edition is to be released on the 18th October. I love this series, and somehow this makes the loooooong wait for The Winds of Winter more bearable!
Sticking with illustrated editions… I’ve been wanting to read The Lie Tree for a while so when I saw that this stunning illustrated edition is to be released on 20th October I decided to hold off. What’s more, the illustrations are by the incredible Chris Riddell!
I couldn’t write about Autumn/Winter releases and not mention Gemina, the second book in The Illuminae Files series. If you haven’t read the first book, Illuminae, then I highly recommend doing so. I was lucky enough to be sent an ARC for Gemina and, basically, it is brilliant! You can find my review here. Gemina is out on 20th October in the UK (18th for US I believe).
The Diabolic is a title I just happened across recently. I’ve seen great ARC reviews for it so far and it sounds right up my street. Rather than trying to describe it, here’s a link to the Goodreads synopsis. It’s released on the 1st November.
I feel like I’ve been waiting FOREVER for this book, the final instalment in The Queen of the Tearling series. I actually have reviews of the first two books, The Queen of the Tearling and The Invasion of the Tearling on the blog so I won’t go into any detail here. Suffice to say I can’t wait for publication on the 1st December! If you’re in the US the publication date is 29th November.
I felt that I couldn’t do a most anticipated Autumn / Winter 2016 post without also mentioning Heartless by Marissa Meyer. However, it’s not out in the UK until February 2017 so this is really just a mention for any US readers. So, US friends mark your diaries for the 8th November! UK pals, we have to wait until February but you could use the time to reread The Lunar Chronicles?
What books are you most looking forward to this Autumn/Winter?
