So many good books coming out in 2012 that it is almost obnoxious. Below you’ll find just a handful of books that I’m looking forward to this year. What books are you all excited for this year?
A Path to the Coldness of Heart by Glen Cook.
The original manuscript for this book was stolen over 20 years ago, so we Dread Empire fans have been waiting a very long time for the eight and final book in this series. Plus, it’s Glen Cook. Who doesn’t like Glen Cook? Assholes, that’s who!
A Crown Imperilled by Raymond E. Feist
I will always have a soft spot for Pug and Tomas so I’m fairly excited for this even if there have been 50323 previous books in the series (I jest. I think this is book 29, but I could be wrong). And, uh, is Imperilled even a word?
Blue Remembered Earth by Alastair Reynolds
Chasm City is one of my favorite science fiction books of all time so I’ll give any new series by Reynolds a chance.
Black Opera by Mary Gentle
A new novel by Mary Gentle! I love her books. June 5 needs to hurry up and get here.
Some Kind of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce
Graham Joyce’s books are always a treat and I see no reason why this one won’t be as well.
King of Thorns by Mark Lawrence
The first book in this series was a lot of fun so I’m definitely excited for the second.
A Memory of Light by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson
I hate to admit it, but I haven’t read the last two books in the Wheel of Time series. I’m not sure, but with the final book coming it this year I’m sure I’ll be reading them shortly. I turn 33 in a couple weeks and I think book one came out when I was in 7th grade. I feel old.
Those are just a handful of the books I’m looking forward to. Yeesh.
