A Peek into Your Reading Future

A few of the fiction books being released early this year that I’m quite excited to get into your hands!

What to Read: Dangerous by Shannon Hale

Why You Should Read It: Shannon Hale, author of wonderful books including Princess Academy and Goose Girl, brings us a book unlike anything she’s previously released. Maisie Danger Brown has always dreamed of being an astronaut, so when she wins a trip to a NASA-like space camp, she’s beyond thrilled. The camp is everything she had hoped it would be…until an alien artifact buries its way into her body. You’re absolutely going to want to read Dangerous.

What to Read in the Meantime: I’m going to direct you to a Bradbury classic to get your thinker brains going; pick up a copy of Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 and delve into a delectable science fiction world.

What to Read: Deception’s Princess by Esther M. Friesner

Why You Should Read It: I feel like this is, in many ways, the story I wanted Disney’s Brave to be (but–bookseller woe–movies don’t quite satisfy me in the way a book does). Maeve is the youngest of five princesses. After her father becomes High King, his court is transformed into a place of dangerous intrigue, where she is only viewed as a prize to be won! Never in her life has Maeve considered herself an object to be owned, and she’s more determined than ever take control of her life and her own fate. Mature, thoughtful, and engaging, this is one story you won’t want to miss!

What to Read in the Meantime: I’d pick up Robin Lafever’s Grave Mercy for a taste of medieval elegance, intrigue, and scandal!

What to Read: The Return of Zita the Spacegirl by Ben Hatke

Why You Should Read It: Third in the Zita series, The Return of Zita the Spacegirl is even better than it predecessors. Being held as a criminal on a penitentiary planet isn’t what Zita had in mind, so she begins to plot her escape…but when she realizes a few of her past decisions have had horrible consequences, her whole intergalactic journey is thrown into question.

What to Read in the Meantime: If you haven’t done so already, picking up the first two Zita books is a really good idea.

  

If you’re already familiar with Zita’s story, pick up Tony Cliff’s Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant for a rollicking read!

One thought on “A Peek into Your Reading Future

  1. I’m looking forward to Alice Hoffman’s new book as I thought The Dovekeepers was amazing. Also, Susannah Kaysen, who wrote Girl Interrupted has a new release in March. I could drone on for pages but those are the two I’m most excited about!
