A quick post about all these AMAZING titles coming out soon or just released that I am very much looking forward to finally reading. I always feel like I am about one hundred steps behind with my reading – there is a pile of books beside my bed and just when I think I am getting somewhere along come a few more titles just released or brought to my attention that I know I simply cannot ignore.
It is very rare now that I have a spare few hours or an afternoon to just sloth around and read, and I really miss that! Reading a bit here and a bit there in-between other stuff I have to do is just not the same experience. That being said, I now know that I have cracked onto a real winner these days when I end up reading well into the night – I love this feeling, of just wanting more more more! And hopefully there might just be a bit of that going on with the titles below.
First, is The Mourning Emporium, sequel to Michelle Lovric’s The Undrowned Child, a book that I just loved to bits last year. If you want completely immersive worlds and quirktastic characters, these books are it.
 I saw a few days ago that Jon Mayhew has a new book out, The Demon Collector, next month. Really enjoyed Mortlock last year so keen to see what he can do with this one.
 Winter’s Shadow is an Aussie para-romance that's really got me interested, seeing that it is both Aussie and written by a male author and I’ve read some good advance reviews.
 The Last Werewolf is a title that keeps coming up in my workplace and whose seeming mishmash of genres has got me really intrigued.
 I loved the prose, style and voice of Ananda Braxton Smith’s Merrow, so can’t wait to step back into a similar world in her next book Tantony, released in May.
And even though it’s not released until July, I am so excited for Lost Voices, by Sarah Porter. Yes, of course it’s something to do with the mermaids. But I just love the sound of it and have been hanging out for months to get my hands on this.
Will be reviewing all these in the coming months, so hopefully they live up to my grand expectations!


  1. Hi Samantha,
    Pleased to hear you're looking forward to reading my book. Hopefully it lives up to your expectations. If you're interested you can download the first 80 pages on my website and I'll contact my publicist about seeing if we can get you an advance copy.

    Take care!

  2. Hi MJ,

    Thanks so much, I hope so too! Have read some great advance reviews, so am looking forward to it. I was sent a copy by Pan M already, but thanks! Will be reviewing on her in the coming month, so keep an eye out for the inevitable great review ;)
